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.
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. Arrow pest Group fly control professionals know how to identify the source of the infestation and remove it quickly.
Fly control and fly prevention
Our professional fly control and prevention specialists take an integrated pest management approach to getting rid of flies. While we have techniques and treatments that will eliminate the fly infestation, it doesn’t do much good if you haven’t gotten rid of the reason they showed up in the first place.
A Arrow Pest Group specialist will track down the reasons why the flies are in your home. Perhaps there is a garbage dumpster placed too close to the home. There might be an animal that got into your home and died, creating a breeding ground for flesh flies.
We’ll find the reason and remove the eggs, adults and breeding areas and seal up access points.
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.
Arrow Pest Group 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.
Flies are known to be the cause of illnesses such as:
- 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.
