Fly Facts & Information

How To Identify & Control Flies

Latin Name
Family Diptera
Appearance

What do flies look like?

The true flies belong to the Order Diptera and include many common insects such as mosquitoes, midges, sand flies, blowflies and the House Fly. Most of the insects we see flying around do so with four wings (two pairs). However, dipterans (meaning 'two wings') use only one pair. The other pair of wings is reduced to club-like structures known as 'halteres' that they use for balance.

HOW DID I GET FLIES?

There are many different ways homeowners may get a fly in their living space. The insects can enter houses on food products (fruit flies) or drift in through open windows and doors. They may also be attracted to and develop in decaying organic matter in drains. They can also infest dead animals in walls, attics, or other hidden places inside the home. Some species prefer to overwinter inside and are attracted to sunny parts of the home and upper floors of buildings.

HOW SERIOUS ARE FLIES?

Because people correctly associate flies with filth, these pests disgust and annoy residents in homes. The insects can also transfer disease organisms when they touch food and kitchen surfaces

Disease

Millions of microorganisms may flourish in a single fly’s gut, while a half-billion more swarm over its body and legs. Flies spread diseases readily because they move quickly from rotting, disease-laden garbage to exposed human foods and utensils. Every time a fly lands, it sloughs off thousands of microbes which can cause serious illnesses like:

  • Bloodstream infections
  • Diarrhea
  • Food poisoning
  • Meningitis

HOW DO I PREVENT FLIES?

The best way to repel flies is through simple, preventive measures. In order to best repel flies, limit access to your home as much as possible, keeping doors and windows closed. You may also choose to screen windows, doors, and vents. Keep garbage cans clean and securely closed. Keeping surfaces clean will make your home less appealing to flies. For best results, contact a pest control professional to discuss extermination options.
