About Flies

These pests have one set of wings, six legs and mouthparts that allow them to sponge up food. Some common species also have bright red eyes and hairs that cover their bodies. Flies are rather small, with most tinier than ¼ of an inch.

Flies and their buzzing sounds can be annoying, but these pests can also be detrimental to your health. When they make contact with any surface, they drop bacteria that can transmit dangerous diseases such as E. coli, Salmonella typhi, Shigella and Staphylococcus. A fly infestation may also be an indicator of a more significant overall sanitation issue.

Detecting Flies

Detecting flies is usually as simple as seeing them in your home. They buzz around kitchens and food, landing wherever they please. You may find clusters of flies around windows, as well as dark spots of excrement on windows, counters and walls.

Preventing Flies

Fly prevention consists of two primary parts: Cleanliness and exclusion. Be sure to keep trash bin lids tight and and clean your drain pipes regularly with a bristle brush. Eliminate breeding grounds by removing any pooling water, lawn clippings and other organic matter around your home. To discourage fly entry, you’ll also want to caulk any cracks around doors and windows, and make sure screens fit are tear-free and fit properly.
