Frequently Asked Questions About Flies

What are flies?

Flies are insects that belong to the order Diptera. They are characterized by their two sets of wings, one of which is used for flying, and the other for changing direction. Many types of flies can be found in our area. Some of the most common species include house flies, fruit flies, fungus flies, and drain flies. These species behave similarly inside homes and businesses but have very different feeding and breeding habits. Your goal should not be to understand each unique species, but rather to understand how to best control them indoors.

Are flies dangerous?

Flies are deceptive pests. Although they do not look dangerous, they are considered to be a real threat to your health. This is because of the many disease-causing organisms they are capable of carrying and spreading. House flies alone spread things like cholera, salmonellosis, typhoid fever, and tuberculosis. There have even been cases where these nasty little insects transfer anthrax. If you have these pests indoors, clean frequently and find a quick way to deal with your active infestation.

Why do I have a fly problem?

There are many reasons that flies might choose to invade your property. To start, these pests are highly food-motivated. Most invasions start when these insects buzz through a hole, gap, or opening in a building's exterior and find something tasty indoors. Sometimes people bring flies indoors without knowing it. This happens most frequently with fruit flies, as these pests are capable of laying their eggs on fruits and vegetables that people buy at places like grocery stores and farmer's markets.

Where will I find flies?

Flies are not shy creatures. You will find these insects all around your interior spaces. They will land on TV screens, plates of food, your body, and anywhere else they please. If even one fly is around, chances are you will know about it before too long. The only problem is that slapping one of these pests almost never solves the problem.
