As their name suggests, House Flies are commonly found around most homes and buildings at some time, but occasional sightings can escalate to an infestation in some cases. The House Fly will eat a variety of food, ranging from human and animal food, to carcasses, rubbish and excrement.
When house flies are seen flying around it can be not only annoying, but also a significant risk in terms of transmitting diseases. Unfortunately, house fly control is not always straight forward, particularly as different types of fly should be dealt with in different ways.
When the place that the flies have been depositing their eggs has been identified the breeding site must be cleaned up thoroughly or removed. The elimination of the adult flies may then require fly bait, traps or the application of insecticide, but Shield Pest Control’s trained team will be able to advise on the best course of action.
