Flies Control Service

In common terms, a fly is any insect in the Diptera order that has only a single pair of operating wings. This can include quite a large number of insect species, but the flies that plague our homes in the summertime are usually ordinary houseflies . Using pesticides is for indoor residual spraying (IRS), which involves spraying surfaces with an insecticide that remains in place and kills insects that contact the surfaces for several weeks or even months afterward. This is a strategy most often employed in regions where malaria-carrying mosquitoes are common, and it is not a good method for controlling nuisance houseflies.

Fly Control Measures

Sanitation: Sanitation plays a critical role in a good fly management program. The goal in sanitation is to remove or prevent any medium where fly larvae will develop. It's also important to remove things that are attractive to adult flies such as garbage and animal waste. Moisture is a critical factor in any fly breeding material. For Drain fly clean the drain net thoroughly.

Exclusion: Flies found inside a building have entered from the outside in almost all cases. Therefore, barriers preventing access to the building are the first line of defense. Cracks around windows and doors where flies may enter should be sealed. Well-fitted screens will also limit their access to buildings. The best means of controlling flies is through ultraviolet light traps.

Chemical Control: While the use of pesticides is usually not the best means of managing filth fly problems, sometimes chemical control can be a valuable component of an integrated fly management program. Resistance can happen rapidly and to a high degree. Therefore if insecticides are a part of your fly management program it is important to rotate the products used. Chemical treatments should only be applied as a last resort by a licensed, trained pest management professional.
