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. Flies are fascinating creatures, but getting the facts about what they can do and their behavior is important in understanding why fly control is so crucial. 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.

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.

Get rid of flies once and for all and prevent them from returning with a property inspection and fly treatment.

Humidity and temperature both influence how long it takes a fly to develop - for instance, if the temperature and humidity are higher, an egg might hatch sooner. It can take from 6-45 days (or more) to grow from an egg to an adult.
