Fly Control Service

House Flies, Flesh Flies, And Blow Flies

These three types of flies often come from multiple sources, such as feces, garbage, or animal carcasses. Since most of our fly control involves removal of a dead rodent or bird on the property, we usually look for that first. If the dead animal can be located and removed, we’ll take care of it. In addition, we’ll provide recommendations for keeping the fly problem at bay for good once the source is discarded. To supplement on-site inspections, we also use infrared cameras. These cameras help ensure that we’ve searched all the nooks and crannies of your property for any new or additional sources of infestation. If we find a problem area that’s inaccessible, then we apply desiccant dusts. As a general treatment, we apply fly bait to infested areas. The bait quickly knocks out adult flies on the premises. As always, we will provide wildlife exclusion and sanitation recommendations to help you avoid any future infestations.

Fruit Flies

There are actually 2 different species of fruit flies: Drosophila melanogaster and Drosophila repeta. Both of these species feed on moist, decaying organic matter. In addition, both species are tenacious, and require strict sanitation measures in order to be effectively controlled. While many people use fruit fly traps and bug bombs to knock down adults, they key is controlling the larval stage. In order to address the larvae, you need to remove the food source. If the food source is not eliminated, new adults are constantly emerging. Our exterminators perform detailed inspections to determine and remove the underlying cause. By treating for both adults and larvae, you will enjoy lasting results.

Cluster Flies

Cluster flies are considered an occasional invader, and they tend to move inside primarily during the winter season. Controlling cluster flies inside your home is actually best done before they ever manage to get inside. During the summer months, you can apply sealant to the crevices through which they enter. While applying sealant sounds simple enough, it’s actually quite a detailed process when done correctly. Not only will you seal out insects, you’ll also stop mice and other wildlife from entering. Just don’t seal them inside when it’s still cold — you could find yourself with a house full of flies!

Another good option is to seal inside the living space. While it may not be practical to seal them out completely, it can be quick and easy to block their entry from the inside. Sometimes, it’s as easy as sealing around an attic door. Power-dusting your attic space can also be beneficial if the area is closed off and unused. Otherwise, dusting soffit areas and wall voids will also help. In certain instances, we can apply pest strips inside attic spaces to knock them out with vapors.

Treating the cracks and crevices outside during autumn is certainly a prudent move. A thorough exterior treatment can reduce the number of cluster flies that enter your home to overwinter. You can also use traps. In cases where there is a significant number of flies around a structure, we’ll vacuum them up.

Drain Flies

Drain flies are often sign that you have organic matter built up inside your drains. These small flies are most often found within the lower levels of structures, along the main sewer lines. Snaking or flushing drain lines of accumulated organic matter can help. Complex problems may require plumbing inspections and/or repairs. Our bacterial enzyme foam or gel eats away their food source. In addition, we’ll sometimes use borates and insect growth regulators to disrupt their life cycle. We use contact insecticides or vacuums to remove adult flies from the infested area.

Fly Control Tips and Tricks

  • Do what you can to remove the adults. Contact sprays, traps, fly swatters and vacuums are all good options.
  • Light traps and air curtains can stop them if they’re coming in from outside.
  • Keep garbage as far away from the structure as possible — at least 25 feet.
  • Pick up dog feces and empty cat litter as often as possible. These are huge sources of houseflies.
  • Seal your home from rodent entry. Replace contaminated insulation inside crawlspaces and such.
  • Vinegar traps for fruit flies may help. However, keep in mind that you are supplying a food source for them. If the traps are not set up correctly, you could end up breeding more of them than you remove.
  • Clean out your drains periodically. Do this mechanically or with drain cleaning products.
  • Look for hidden sources: dead animal carcasses, fecal contamination, and wet areas of kitchens or bathrooms.

Fly Control FAQ

Flies typically lay their eggs in locations that provide a ready food source for the emerging larvae. They can lay their eggs in a wide variety of places such as rotting vegetation, animal feces, decaying organic material, and even in certain living organisms. The specific breeding ground varies with the species of the fly. Houseflies, for instance, favor rotting organic materials, while blowflies prefer carcasses or decaying meat.

Flies lay eggs where there’s food for larvae. The location varies depending on the fly species. Common breeding grounds include rotting vegetation, feces, and decaying organic material.

Flies have a distinct aversion to certain smells, primarily those of certain herbs and essential oils. Flies particularly dislike the scents of lemongrass, peppermint, lavender, and basil. Therefore, using these essential oils in a diffuser, or planting these herbs around your home or garden, can act as a natural deterrent to flies.

Fruit flies are not directly harmful to humans as they do not bite or sting. However, they can pose indirect harm because they breed and feed in environments often rich in bacteria and other microorganisms, such as rotting fruits. Therefore, they can potentially contaminate food with bacteria and other pathogens that can cause illness. It’s also worth noting that fruit flies can be a nuisance due to their rapid breeding.

Fruit flies in the house are usually caused by ripe, rotting, or decayed fruit and produce. They can also be attracted to fermented items such as beer, liquor, and wine. Other potential attractants include trash bins, cleaning rags, and mops with food residues. Fruit flies are incredibly small and can enter the home through tiny cracks and gaps or hitch a ride on fruits and vegetables brought from the grocery store.

Exterminators use a variety of methods to get rid of flies. First, they conduct an inspection to identify the species and the extent of the infestation. Then, they may use insecticides, fly traps, or electronic fly killers. In some cases, they might use biological control methods, such as introducing predators or parasites that naturally control the fly population.
