Dietary Needs

Flies occupy a variety of ecological niches. However, most survive as scavengers. These annoying insects eat any food available, including meat, dung, or even pipe grease.

Entry

Keeping flies from entering a structure is very difficult. Doors and windows offer easy access to most species of fly.

Nesting

Most flies reproduce in filth, whether droppings of other animals, fungus, or grime around pipes. Flies need moist, nutrient rich environments to develop from larvae to pupae and adults.

Numbers

Flies reproduce extremely quickly, with the entire life cycle of many species of flies taking place within a matter of days. Each fly can lay dozens to hundreds of eggs within a short lifetime.

Fly Dangers

Flies are highly effective pathways for the spread of diseases. The life cycle of the fly requires them to be born in filth. From this beginning, they fly into your home to feed. Each time a fly lands, it regurgitate part of the contents of its stomach. This helps break down the food to make it easier for the fly to eat, but also transfers bacteria back and forth between waste and previously sanitary goods and surfaces.

Control

Effective fly control is one of the most challenging pest control tasks. It begins with proper identification of species and habits, but then extends far beyond these basic pest control measures.

Fly control requires implementation of a comprehensive sanitation strategy, followed by thorough exclusion via destruction of breeding areas. After your home is clean and secure, we must take patient, methodical action to ensure that the fly infestation is entirely eliminated. Leaving flies anywhere in the house to breed can allow the population to rebound from just a few remaining adults to thousands in a matter of days.
