The weather is warming up and summer is nearly here, and that means so too are the flies! There’s nothing worse than flies hanging around your kitchen, living room and other areas inside your premises. From the hygiene concerns to the irritating buzz and annoyance of having them fly around your face, flies simply have no place inside our homes.
Whilst you may be tempted to break out the chemical sprays, we urge you to hold back and instead consider the following options first. It may not be possible to eliminate the risk of flies entering your home, but there are a few precautions which can be taken. We’ll also let you know some safe control methods which won’t place the health of your family at risk.
- Blocking Out Entry points
It may seem simple, but you would be surprised at the many different entry points flies are able to locate. You should start by installing mesh and flyscreens across all doors, and ensure that the main doors are shut at all times. It is also a good idea to call in a pest control expert, as they will be able to identify other entry/exit points and put measures in place to stop flies getting in.
- Reduce Attraction for Flies
Flies are attracted to dirty and unhygienic areas, so if you want to reduce the attraction you will need to pay close attention to cleaning and sanitation around your home. Simple measures to take include cleaning up spills immediately, daily emptying of bins and cleaning food/water bowls daily. You should also ensure that you have adequate ventilation, as flies and other flying insects love moist environments.
- Find the Source of Infestation
It is important to change your bins regularly, and you should also inspect flour and dry baking ingredients for signs of infestation as they both attract flies. Flies lay eggs which eventually turn into maggots, and eventually they will turn into flies. This can cause an ongoing infestation issue. You can reduce the risk of this occurring with insect control light traps. If you’re having trouble locating the source of infestation, you may need to call in a professional pest controller who will identify and advise accordingly.
- Consider Your Control Methods
Chemical sprays should only be used as a last resort. Instead of chemical sprays, consider the use of, UV light traps, natural contrast grids, and optimised glueboards.
