Say Good Bye To Flies
When you start seeing pesky flies in your home it can only mean one thing; summer is finally here. Hate to ruin your summer, but it could also be a sign of a house infestation. The sighting of several adult flies could be a sign that there are pupae elsewhere in the house. Flies would love nothing more than to breed millions of offspring in the crevices of your home.
What’s The Harm?
Flies aren’t just annoying, they can be a serious health risk. Flies love to feast on rotting material and animal feces. When they come into your home, they bring a number of dangerous bacteria with them, spreading it all over your food and surface areas. To keep these disease transporting insects at bay, you need to call the professionals. There are several types of flies most common to homes including house flies, drain flies, bottle flies, and fruit flies, to name a few.
Hurry, They Reproduce Fast!
It is essential to combat a fly problem quickly. Female flies lay about 75-150 eggs at a time. Multiply that by the number of flies in your home and you could have a big problem in a short amount of time. Flies have a rapid growth rate and go from egg to adult in only 7 days. Properly controlling flies includes not only killing the adults but having an experienced pest control technician find and kill the egg colonies.
Time To Say Goodbye!
Flies look for breeding areas where they can deposit their eggs. Sometimes merely taking out the trash can solve the problem, but other times it takes a trained professional to scout out hidden breeding places as well as structural issues where flies are finding a way into your home. If you don’t address these issues, you can expect a nice arm workout as you swat flies continuously. Give Rove Pest Control a call so you can enjoy a fly-free summer!
