House flies enter homes by several means: doors which do not close fast enough or that do not have a good fit; windows without screens or with screens in ill repair. Flies also enter buildings through tiny cracks around windows and doors; seal or caulk these areas.
Fly elimination procedures include source elimination, exclusion and population reduction. In most cases, population reduction involves eliminating the source of the flies and excluding them from the environment. Other methods of reducing or eliminating flies include the use of Ultraviolet Light Traps and Surface Spray.
These pests can be found throughout the world, in homes, food processing plants, warehouses, grocery stores, wineries, restaurants and other structures. The larvae of these pests can be found in many breeding sites: aquatic areas, seaweed, decaying grass and compost piles, earthworms, manure, dead animals, cadavers, garbage, damp organic matter in all stages of decomposition, sewers, soil contaminated by sewage, potting soil, cheeses, meats, drains, rotting vegetables and fruits, fresh fruits, wet soil and sump pumps.
Although there are several sprays and sticky traps used to kill flies in a home, restaurant or other structure, the infestation cannot be eliminated without eliminating their source. A space spray can be used as a quick kill, reducing populations of flying insects. The key to eliminating Flies is to locate the voids in which they over winter and treating these areas with a surface spray using our formulated chemicals. A surface residual spray can also be used as a quick kill. Granular scatter baits can also be used to control House flies.
They are capable of carrying over 100 pathogens, such as those causing typhoid, cholera, salmonellosis, bacillary dysentery, tuberculosis, anthrax, ophthalmia, and parasitic worms. House flies feed on liquid or semiliquid substances beside solid material which has been softened by saliva or vomit. Because of their large intake of food, they deposit feces constantly, one of the factors that makes the insect a dangerous carrier of pathogens.
