House flies are the most common of all domestic flies, accounting for about 90% of all flies in human habitations, and indeed one of the most widely distributed insects .House flies can carry over 100 different kinds of germs so it’s important to control them.
Flies depend on warm temperatures; generally, the warmer the temperature the faster the flies will develop. In winter, most of them survive in the larval or the pupa stage in some protected warm location.
Prevention is better than cure!
Not only are they one of the most annoying of pests they are sometimes the hardest to get rid of. A preventative approach is the best place to start.
To deter house flies from entering or remaining in your home, keep it clean. Remove waste regularly, use sealed rubbish receptacles, and clean up pet waste immediately. You can also practice good house fly prevention by installing fine mesh screens on doors and windows.
When treating for flies we generally use a liquid spray.
A fine mist will cover your ceilings around windows and door frames. Once dry, this leaves a residue which affects the fly once it lands on the protected area.
It is important to note that once your house has been treated is does not mean you will not have flies enter your house. Treatment affected flies generally head for a way out. They often hit the windows and land on the sill - which has been treated as well.. So you will need to clean up dead flies around window sills.
