You’ve probably encountered flies moving around the outside and inside of your property. Although they may appear harmless, flies could create problems, especially if you have a full-blown infestation. One question people commonly wonder is: Do flies bite?

So, why do flies bite in the first place? Depending on what species you’re talking about, flies bite either for nourishment or to lay eggs.
No-see-ums are small (hence the name) - around 1/16 inch in length. They are capable of biting people underneath clothing. A welt can develop. No-see-ums can bite humans and animals. If you spend a lot of time outside, you may know this all too well.
No-see-um bites commonly bring on a red spot that itches a lot. Try to wear clothes that are lighter in color to avoid being bitten.
If you are bitten by a fly and experience a serious reaction, contact a medical professional right away. But even without the presence of a bad reaction to bites, you should get rid of flies as soon as possible if you’re dealing with an infestation.
