Rid Kill Flies Control

For best fly control results, I recommend using the specialists such as Auckland Steam ‘n’ Dry Fly Control Auckland. In fact, Fly Control Auckland has proudly been providing professional fly control services in the following areas since 1987.

Fly Control Indoors


Garbage should be removed daily. Use plastic trash liners and twist and tie them when disposing of them. Do not empty garbage or trash into metal trash cans without liners. At any rate, not using a trash can liner will cause odours that will attract flies. If you cannot use a liner for whatever reason, wash the trash can out with a disinfecting cleaner regularly.

Bug Zapper

Do not use an electrical bug zapper indoors or within 100 feet of the building. Electrical bug zappers cause the insect to explode releasing insect body parts as far as 10 -15 feet away from the zapper. Do use light traps. Light traps will trap the entire insect and are safe to use directly over stoves. As well as food preparation surfaces in most cases.

Indoor Sprays

Indoor sprays such as Responsar are somewhat effective in controlling flies. Be sure to spray window sills and other fly resting spots. Do not spray TV’s, lamps, etc. with insect sprays Ripcord contains Australian pyrethrum that is lethal to flies. Fog liberally into rooms, garages, etc, where flies congregate. A quick spray around windows will kill flies that are trapped behind curtains and blinds.

Commercial kitchens and bars should be aware that fruit flies love the smell and taste of beer. Beer spilt on floors should be mopped or rinsed off every night to prevent fruit fly infestations. The use of a commercial floor cleaner/ also helps. Drain gel helps to remove the organic buildup caused by washing grease and food down floor drains. Use drain gel every week. Fruit fly traps such as the natural pyrethrum are very effective at catching fruit flies and can be placed directly on bar tops and other food preparation surfaces where regular fly control spray cannot be placed.

House Plants

The house plants should never be allowed to sit in water and become soggy. Soggy plant soil will harbour flies, etc.

Paper Fly

Paper fly and inexpensive glue strips are somewhat effective at capturing flies, but in most cases do not attract them and depend on an attractant of some sort or a shiny surface. Flypaper is messy and not very sanitary. For this reason, flypaper is not recommended for use in kitchens or other indoor sanitary areas.

Spray Mist

Timed release spray mist that dispenses pyrethrum regularly are also somewhat effective at controlling flies. Place time-release misters away from food areas and do not place in areas where people will remain for extended periods of time. Never use time-release misters in kitchens, offices, etc.

Light Traps

Highly recommended for fly control indoors. They are safe, capture the entire fly and are easily maintainable. Light traps work best at night when there are no other light sources to attract flies. Light traps should only be placed indoors. The UV light emitted from Light traps will attract flying insects from hundreds of yards. Do not place Light traps near windows or doors.

Retail Fly Control Product

Most over the counter fly control products sold at hardware stores and retailers do not contain the same attractants or active ingredients as professional use products. Although the packaging and advertising may appear convincing, millions of dollars are wasted by consumers annually on over the counter products that simply do not work long term.

Fly Control for Home or office

A buzzing house fly is simply irritating. But besides the annoyance, you might not realize there are plenty of good reasons to swat every fly that comes your way. Keep them out of your home altogether. Flies breed in animal waste and decaying organic material, such as garbage and rotting fruit fallen from trees. And as a result, they pick up bacteria and viruses that can make humans sick.

Kill Fly Information

Fly Control

  • Three-body parts: head, thorax, abdomen
  • One pair of fully developed wings
  • Hind wings are reduced to halteres (small knob-like structures) used to maintain equilibrium.
  • Adult mouthparts are sponging, lapping, or piercing
  • All adults look like Fly, but some may have a metallic colour (blue bottle fly).
  • Antennae may be difficult to see. The fly is an order with very well defined characteristics – the chief one being a single pair of wings. The adult fly emerges from the pupa soft and crumpled with a colourless skin (integument) and perfectly formed (though not fully pigmented) hairs and bristles. The newly emergent adult swallows air to expand its body and wings and to force blood through its body.

Fly Control Behavior

  • The eyes of Fly are among the most complex in the insect world. They are compound eyes with many individual facets, each representing a separate light-detecting unit. The light reflected from the eye of a horsefly can form a rainbow.
  • Fly taste, smell and feel with the hairs that cover their bodies. The hairs on the fly’s mouthparts and feet are used for tasting. Fly taste what they walk on. If they walk onto something tasty, they put down their mouth and taste it again.
  • Fly uses other hairs to tell them when they touch something. These hairs bend when touched.
    The eyes of a fly do not have eyelids, so Fly rub their eyes with their feet to keep them clean.
    A fly cleans itself constantly.
  • Fly walk on smooth surfaces using sticky soft pads that act like glue. This allows them to walk on vertical glass surfaces and upside down.

Flies Habitat

Fly live in garbage and wherever animal faeces are available. Dead animals attract Fly within hours after death. Most Flies are diurnal.

Fly Symptoms

Fly can produce an array of symptoms including pain, itching, urticaria, and cellulitis. An allergic response is the most common, which may be characterized by hives, and in some cases wheezing. Tabanid bites are very painful, with some individuals developing severe lesions, fever, and general disability. This allergic response is due to the large amounts of saliva injected by the fly to prevent their blood meal from clotting.

Flies Health Concerns

Fly is widespread throughout the warmer parts of Australia and will attack humans, livestock and domestic pets to acquire blood. The Fly is stoutly built and is strong swift fliers that tend to be more active throughout the summer months especially in still, open sunny areas. The Tabanids, especially, are influenced by weather and will respond to changes in barometric pressure, wind, cloud cover, and temperature. In short, there are hidden dangers of flies.
