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 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.
