Plus, once you call us, we'll be out in a few hours to provide an inspection that same day.

Identifying the species of fly, whether large or small, is very important to an effective fly program because each fly has its own ecological niche that it occupies in nature.

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.
It is critical for effective fly control to eliminate fly breeding sources but sometimes flies are coming from areas where we do not have control. Pest Control Technicians will use an integrated approach to this scenario using a variety of baits, traps, insect light traps, and other fly control materials to capture and kill flies away from 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.
Just like with other pests, there are some preventative measures that can be taken to avoid a house fly infestation. Those tips include:
Here are some interesting and, at times, disgusting facts about house flies.
The Spotted Lantern Fly is an invasive species of insect that arrived from Asia about 5 years ago. SLF hatch out in early summer and appear as small black insects with white spots on them. These are the nymphs or immature SLF. As adults, they turn red with spotting on the multiple sets of wings and develop into flying insects.
In the late summer and fall, the spotted lanternfly prefers feeding on Ailanthus altissima, commonly known as the "Tree of Heaven." They can be found feeding on other plants and maple and stone fruit trees. The Tree of Heaven is also an invasive species that is found along the road right of ways and in strips of woods and weeds.
These insects threaten some agricultural products such as grapevines and even maple trees. SLF attaches to the branch of the plant they choose to feed upon and begin to drain the nutritional sap from the tree. Some trees will have over 1 thousand SLF feeding at one time. With this level of feeding, the plant or tree becomes weakened or just dies outright from lack of nourishment.
SLF can cause numerous problems for homeowners as well besides weakening or killing desirable plants. Egg masses are sometimes laid on the sides of buildings and can be difficult to remove. If a car is parked under a tree where SLF are feeding, fecal residue from the SLF drops down from the tree and gets on the car, boat, or other finishes, and is very difficult to remove. SLF can also congregate in large numbers on homes but also on high-rise buildings.
PCT was one of the first companies in the Philadelphia area to identify SLF and develop effective treatment techniques for these invasive pests. If you see SLF congregating on or near your home call PCT at 610-275-7378 for effective treatments before they lay egg masses or damage outdoor items.
