What Are Flies?

Flies are some of the most common pests in America. The most frequently encountered flies in the New York City area include fruit flies, house flies, blow flies, cluster flies, phorid flies, drain flies, and fungus gnats. 

Things You Should Know:

  • Flies enjoy feeding on decaying matter.
  • Flies contaminate anything that they land on.
  • They can regurgitate their food and leave droppings behind when they land.
  • Flies are America's most common pest.

Why Are They In My House?

The flies in your home are most likely searching for food and shelter. They are attracted to rotten and decaying matter and are often the result of poor sanitation. However, this is not always the case. Some flies, such as the fruit fly, are attracted to fruits and vegetables.

Are Flies Dangerous?

Flies are known to spread many different diseases and bacteria. They will contaminate anything they land on, both with their droppings and by regurgitating previously eaten foods.

What Does It Take To Get Rid Of Flies?

Proper sanitation is the place to start. However, once flies are established in a structure, this is not usually enough to get rid of them. It will probably be necessary to have a local New York pest exterminator, such as Parkway Pest Services, determine and eliminate breeding sites.

How Can I Prevent A Future Infestation?

Keeping up with proper sanitation is the best way to avoid problems with flies. Empty the trash often and immediately clean any food or drink spills. However, since flies are so common in New York, this still may not be enough to prevent an infestation. A pest protection package from Parkway Pest Services will provide you with constant relief from all species of flies and many other pests. Contact us today for more information.
