Here are some of our common fly control FAQS, directly answered by the pest experts. If you still have questions, please don’t hesitate to send us a message.
Flies are large, fast, and many, despite being very large, are silent in flight. The bite of the flies, however, is anything but discrete. Indeed, they are generally strong, stout, and noisy fliers. Definitely, feed on carrion, decaying organic matter and can often be seen on flowers where they consume carbohydrate-rich nectar.
The flies are even seen in our homes in autumn when they come indoors to shelter and overwinter—eventually, early once more when they emerge during the warmer days of spring. A common infestation site is lofts, UPVC window frames, and the internal cavities of sash windows.
Lure-based fly control traps are very effective against flies, as they are more commonly known.
There are various species of flies that a near relative, such as a stable fly, can bite. However, some flies, like a housefly, cannot.
They cause a large number of significant diseases. Of course, it is the diseases they carry that cause the microbiological contamination of foods and surfaces.
They are important disease vectors, spreading pathogenic microorganisms that include dysentery, salmonella, typhoid, E. coli and many others due to their contact with their food of choice – dung and carrion.
Generally, they carry bacteria on their bodies in their droppings. When they settle on a suitable food source or surface, they taste it by regurgitating contaminated digestive enzymes (e.g. from dung, sewage, and carrion) onto it and then lapping them back up. These enzymes or digestive juices are termed proteolytic or protein splitting. Here are some fly infestation signs.
