The house fly carries bacteria from decaying matter and feces. Its larvae (commonly called maggots) live off of dead animals, garbage, and decaying matter.
Flies nest frequently in garbage cans, animal droppings, animal habitats, manure, and land fills. They will gravitate toward food in the kitchen, baby bottles, diapers, and human hair and skin.
Fly Treatment & Fly Control
The non-biting flies are one of the most important pest groups because they are not only nuisance pests, but many are important in disease transmission. The common house fly is one of them and has been found to harbor over 100 different pathogenic organisms. Fly control is quite challenging. The Integrated Pest Management (IMP) protocol is ideally suited to control houseflies in and around a structure.
