Potential Damage by Flies

Flies pose a multitude of threats. They are notorious disease carriers and can contaminate food and surfaces with their excrement and saliva. Organic materials such as wood can be structurally compromised when flies lay eggs on them. The hatching larvae feast on these materials, causing significant damage.

Despite their seemingly insignificant size, flies can disrupt daily life and be a real nuisance. Preventive action and control are crucial to avoid harm to your health, food, and property.

More Information on Flies

Flies, small winged insects of the order Diptera, reproduce rapidly due to their swift life cycle, making them common household nuisances. They are vectors for several diseases and are notorious for contaminating food and surfaces. They have a preference for moist, organic matter, often indicating poor sanitation.

Multiple fly species exist, such as house, fruit, and horse flies, each with distinct traits and habits. House flies are common indoor pests attracted to food and garbage, while fruit flies are lured to ripe fruit and sweet, moist organic substances. Horse flies are outdoor pests that bite and can transmit diseases to humans and animals.

Flies Life Cycle

EggsFemale flies lay their eggs on moist, organic material, such as garbage, rotting fruit, and animal waste. The eggs hatch into larvae within 24-48 hours.
LarvaeThe larvae, also known as maggots, feed on the organic material they were laid on. They grow and molt several times until they reach their full size, which can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks depending on the species of fly.
PupaeThe larvae then transform into pupae, which is a resting stage where they undergo metamorphosis and develop into adult flies. This stage can last from a few days to several weeks.
AdultsThe adult flies emerge from the pupae and mate. Female flies can lay hundreds of eggs in their lifetime, and the cycle begins again. The lifespan of a fly varies depending on the species, but most adult flies only live for a few weeks.

Signs of a Flies Infestation

  • Increased Fly Activity: If you observe an increased number of flies in your home or property, it may indicate an infestation.
  • Swarm: A large group of flies gathering near a specific location may indicate a breeding site.
  • Foul Odors: The presence of a strong, unpleasant odor in a specific area may indicate a fly infestation.
  • Maggots: The presence of maggots in food or other organic materials may indicate a fly infestation.
  • Fly Specks: Dark, tiny spots near food sources or around windows and doors may indicate fly excrement and a potential infestation.

Do Flies Bite?

Certain species, like house and horse flies, do bite humans causing discomfort and itching. However, the majority feed on nectar, fruit, or other organic materials and do not pose a biting threat to humans.

How Flies Infest Your Home

Flies may find their way into your home or property through several avenues:

  1. Open Food Sources: Flies are attracted to food, and they will invade your space if they have access to open food sources like uncovered garbage, pet food, or ripe fruit.
  2. Open Doors and Windows: Frequent open doors or windows may serve as entry points for flies.
  3. Poor Sanitation: Flies are lured to moist, organic materials, often indicative of poor sanitation. Improper disposal or cleaning of garbage cans, compost bins, or animal waste can invite flies.
  4. Sewer Systems: Flies can breed in sewer systems and infiltrate your home through plumbing fixtures.
  5. Nearby Breeding Sites: Proximity to breeding sites like compost piles, manure piles, or abandoned buildings can attract these pests and amplify the risk of an infestation.
