Signs of a Fly Infestation

Struggling to get rid of Flies around your Home or Business? We can help.

Fly control is an important aspect of everyday life for all of us, never more so for many commercial and industrial businesses, as it is a requirement of law. A huge variety of dangerous diseases are carried by these pest insects and environmental health agencies are quick to enforce the terms of the Food Safety Act 1955 and 1976 for individuals and businesses selling or dealing with food in unhygienic conditions.

The identification of the specific fly species is an important factor in controlling the problem, as all flies have different habits, life cycles, and originate from different sources. Pest Control in almost all instances of fly infestation is achieved by locating and treating the breeding sites where the larvae exist, combined with a surface treatment of alighting surfaces.

  • Small dark clusters of spots in light areas (the size of a pinhead).
  • Regular sighting of flies around your home, food or bins.
  • Maggots these are flies in their larval stage and could indicate a potential breeding site on your property.

Cluster Flies 
(Pollenia rudis)

Cluster Flies can often be found under felt in attics and around heating and ventilation pipes where they appear in spring and autumn. It is at this point the flies head towards the light and are exposed in bedrooms or upper floor offices /warehouses.

House Fly 
(Musca domestica)

The laval food of the Housefly must be moist, vegetable matter, found on rubbish tips and food residues in kitchens. Manure heaps are favoured locations for the fly to lay its eggs in batches of 120-150, which can hatch in between 8hrs – 3 days dependent on conditions.

Blowflies 
(Varied Species)

Bluebottle (Calliphora species) and Greenbottle (Lucila species) are noisy flies, coloured in bright shiny hues. These species of flies lay their eggs in massive batches of up to 200 eggs on meat, dead animals and cheese.
