Flies can be a nuisance pest for homes and businesses. A fly infestation could pose a serious health risk as flies are known to spread a range of diseases, like Salmonella and E.coli.
Deny flies access - after dark, keep windows and doors closed or block out the light with curtainsFit fly screens - to windows, especially around kitchen and waste areas Cover food - flies spread diseases by landing on food before we eat it Clear food debris - and liquid spillage's immediately, particularly from under kitchen units and appliances Bins - ensure all exterior dustbins and internal bins have tightly sealed lids Clean up after pets - not only are faeces a perfect breeding place for flies, they may land there before landing on your food Remove dead flies - as they provide a tasty snack for other pests such as carpet beetles Cover water butts - with well fitted lids to deny access Remove standing water - (in watering cans for example) as this offers mosquitoes opportunity to breed Ponds - if you have a garden pond, introduce goldfish as they will eat fly larvae
FACT: Common house flies are attracted to decaying organic waste such as faeces and rotting meat, whereas fruit flies will look for sugary substances and feed more commonly on overripe fruit, spilled soft drinks and alcohol.
