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.

Spotted Lantern Fly - What You Need to Know

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.

What do they eat?

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.

Are they harmful?

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.

Can they harm your home?

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.

How can PCT help?

PCT was one of the first companies in the 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.
