A few flies floating around in your house or business does not mean a severe infestation. However, you should view them as warning signs and take preventive measures.
Flies are harmful to food products, which can make future consumption of these products dangerous. Among other things, fly larvae can be detrimental to crops such as fruit and vegetables. In addition, flies can affect farm animals: They can infect animals with diseases, leading to decreased fattening of the animals and reduced milk yield. If you are not careful and do not take control measures against flies, it can become a real nuisance in the house.
To protect against flies, both prophylactic measures and many active control measures (targeted use of biocides or physical methods) are taken. In addition to control methods, the penetration of flies into the interior should always be prevented through nets.
Problems with flies?
House flies are very annoying to people, especially on hot days. Some species of flies grow from egg to adult in just seven days. If a small fly problem is not brought under control, it can develop into a severe infestation. A simple fly swatter, a so-called fly killer or a self-made fly trap is no longer enough when it comes to a plague of flies. In this case, an effective fly repellant is required, i.e. above all, professional (LED) fly traps that kill flies effectively.
Flies belong to the insect family of the order Diptera. Their body is 2 to 15 mm long, usually dark, more rarely yellow or with a metallic, blue or green sheen, covered with hair and bristles. Their diet includes manure, vegetable saps, decomposing organic matter, human faeces. However, there are also predators and bloodsuckers among the flies. Most species of flies lay eggs, the majority of which do not survive. Fly larvae develop in decomposing organic substances, manure, less often in the living tissue of plants and animals.
Common signs of a fly problem
- Visible Specimens of Flies – Numerous flies in garbage areas and on the ground around trash cans or other garbage cans can indicate a more severe problem. Check anywhere where there is water retention, including gutters, rain barrels, tires, or old machinery. Potted plants standing in water can also attract flies.
- Faeces (small, dark clusters of pinhead-sized spots) – Check lamps, upper areas of the room, and walls. Check areas that are difficult to clean, such as drains, drains, and cavities under the flooring where the contents of damaged pipes can build up. Gutters, areas around sinks and damaged floor tiles should also be monitored.
- Maggots, i.e. fly in the larval stage (white, tapering, approx. 12 mm in size) – can point out potential breeding grounds. Larvae can often be found in garbage areas and decomposing foods.
- Abandoned doll covers (usually dark red)
