What Causes Fly Infestations In Homes?

Spring is home to a few different types of flies; each invades for similar but different reasons. Fruit flies come indoors and look for decaying fruits and vegetables to feed on and lay their eggs. House flies invade and search out garbage, left-out food, and decaying organic matter to lay their eggs on. Finally, drain flies feed on nectar and polluted water. They prefer to lay their eggs in moist areas, and standing water, usually inside sink drains. As a general rule, flies like dirty homes. They can, however, live inside a mostly clean house, just not as comfortably. To make sure these pests stay outside where they belong, you need to find some form of prevention that works. 

How A Fly Infestation Can Be Hazardous To Your Health

The presence of flies inside your home is not good for your health. Although small, these pests can carry powerful bacteria and other disease-causing organisms. House flies, in particular, can spread typhoid fever, cholera, poliomyelitis, yaws, tularemia, and tuberculosis. Keep this in mind as you see them landing on your countertops, left-out food, and other items around your home. While fighting back against these pests, frequently clean with disinfectants and wash your hands regularly; this is the best way to avoid getting sick with these pests around.

Five Easy And Effective Fly Prevention Tips For Your Home

We do not want you to live with flies inside your house. If these pests are not yet indoors, take some time today to implement some simple DIY prevention strategies. Here are five methods to start with:

  3. Thoroughly clean your home once a week and do your best to keep up with general day-to-day cleaning.
