Do You Have Fruit Flies?
Read up on your fruit fly facts and find out
You probably see flies all the time, particularly if you spend time outdoors. They are common pests when it comes to events like picnics and family reunions, buzzing around the food, landing on plates, and hovering around the garbage. While they are certainly not attractive and they can be a bother, there's a wider concern when it comes to flies and their control: disease.
Fly diseases can range from the annoying to the deadly. A fly infestation could mean there is another problem on your property that is attracting them. Western Exterminator fly control professionals know how to identify the source of the infestation and remove it quickly. A fly exterminator near you is ready to help you how to get rid of flies around your home or areas on your commercial property. We also know how to get rid of gnats.
The most common type of pest flies we encounter are house flies also known as filth flies. They are sometimes referred to as “filth flies” because they like to hover around and feed off of piles of garbage, dead animals or animal dung. That's why house flies bring about health risks. They feed on filthy things and then get bacteria and other dangerous materials on their feet and legs. When they land on your food, they immediately spit saliva to dissolve part of the food in order to eat it and then defecate. So, if a fly lands on your hot dog, you shouldn't eat it!
Western Exterminator knows how to get rid of house flies as well as their cousins, cluster flies. We look for the underlying source of the flies and why they are laying eggs in your home or business. Get rid of flies once and for all and prevent them from returning with a property inspection and fly treatment.

Typhoid - a contagious bacterial infection that can cause severe intestinal inflammation and become dangerous.
Cholera - a potentially fatal bacterial disease that can cause dangerous intestinal problems.
Dysentery - another potentially fatal intestinal infection that can lead to dehydration.
Salmonella - also known as food poisoning, this can be transmitted via flies who land on garbage or contaminated food.
There are several kinds of flies you might find and they almost all bring health risks. The most common types of flies include:
Common House Fly - house flies have red eyes that are probably the ones you see around your home most often. If you see flies on walls, ceilings, tables and other things, it’s probably this kind of fly. They carry a lot of diseases and love human food.
Blow Fly - blow flies have brilliant metallic finishes of blue, green, brass and black. Often the first to arrive on a fresh kill, they love to eat roadkill and that brings about bacteria.
Fruit Fly - despite the name, these fruit flies like all forms of food and even like vinegar. They carry all kinds of bacteria that can contaminate the food you eat.
