No Need to Live with Flies Forever with PCT!

Many people feel that nothing can be done for some small fly infestations; it’s just something that they feel they have to live with. This is a fallacy belief since there are many effective materials for fly control, including biological treatments, insect growth regulators, insect light traps, and numerous other effective control measures. Pest Control Technicians specializes in the elimination of small fly as well as large fly infestations of a wide variety of species. Small flies are usually breeding inside structures—sometimes from floor drains that have organic debris buildup, and other times breeding standing water and food debris. Finding the locations of these breeding sources is crucial so they can be cleaned and properly treated. Only Pest Control Technicians can effectively inspect your fly infestations and design a specific treatment program for your facility.

All of our exterminators are trained in the safest, most eco-friendly treatments possible, meaning you don't have to worry about your loved ones when you choose PCT for fly management control.

How to Prevent Infestations of House Flies

Just like with other pests, there are some preventative measures that can be taken to avoid a house fly infestation. Those tips include:

  • Sanitation–Keeping your home clean is key. This is especially the case in your kitchen. Cleaning your kitchen promptly after meals eliminates house flies. Flies are attracted to the food you eat and when it isn’t available to them, they aren’t as drawn to your living spaces.
  • Check Doors and Windows–Before you open your doors and windows to feel that cool summer breeze, make sure there aren’t any missing or damaged screens. It doesn’t take a very large opening for a fly to fit through it.
  • Keep Garbage Cans Clean–Wipe out your garbage cans regularly to avoid buildup of food and other residues that attract flies. All garbage cans and dumpsters should have a very secure lid on them to keep flies away from your garbage. You should also keep your outside garbage receptacles as far away from any doors or other openings to your house as possible.
  • Clean up After Pets–Keeping your pet’s waste cleaned up in your yard is a great way to keep flies away. Flies are attracted to pet waste and can become a problem if you aren’t cleaning up after your pets.

Interesting Facts About House Flies

Here are some interesting and, at times, disgusting facts about house flies.

  1. Flies are carriers of disease. They are commonly known to carry many types of bacteria that include typhoid, bubonic plague, tuberculosis, gangrene, and leprosy. Those are just a few examples of the many diseases carried by flies.
  2. Flies don’t have a mouth. They actually eat their meal through a tube. Before eating any food, they have to spit or vomit fluid from their stomachs to break down their meal into liquid. The house fly then sucks it up, leaving behind all sorts of germs.
  3. Flies have multiple lenses. Flies have four thousand lenses in each eye, eight thousand in total. They still don’t have great eyesight though.
  4. Flies multiply quickly. Females can lay up to 2,500 eggs each month. Flies are fully developed from egg to adult in 10 days.
