How to get rid of flies at home?

London’s most reliable fly treatment

Flies carry and transmit diseases as they fly around, and because of their close association with humans, as well as being very annoying and unpleasant, they pose a serious health risk to people. Having flies in your home can leave you exposed to enteric infections, such as salmonella, E. coli, dysentery, diarrhoea, typhoid, cholera, and more. For effective fly treatment in London you should always seek professional help.

Facts about flies

  • Did you know that house flies live on a liquid diet as they lack the necessary mouthparts needed to chew food. They drink their food instead.

  • A house fly will regurgitate digestive juices onto solid foods and these juices cause the food to break down into smaller pieces allowing them to use their mouthparts, the "proboscis", to drink the meal.

  • Flies have specially adapted eyes that allow them to have an almost 360-degree field of view which helps them see signs of danger a lot quicker, hence why it is difficult to catch a fly.

  • The lifespan of a housefly is only 30 days, which is not long, but during this time they can lay up to 500 eggs and this is how they keep infestations growing.

  • Fruit flies get their name because they like to breed beneath the skin of rotting fruit and vegetables.

  • If two flies were to breed for a year and all the offspring lived, they would cover the entire Earth to a depth of 46 feet. That’s frightening.

How do you know you have a problem with flies?

  • The easiest way to tell if you have a problem is that you will see an increase in flies in and around your business.

  • You will see them flying around food and bins and they will also be attracted to lighting and windows where the light is coming into the property.

  • A leaking waste pipe in the home is an ideal breeding ground for drain flies so if you see any of these flies in your home, check to make sure there are no water leaks.

  • If you see bluebottles or greenbottles in the home this could identify another problem as they tend to lay their eggs in carcasses of other animals.

  • Large maggots in and around bin bags are also indicators of bluebottles/greenbottles breeding in decomposing meat products.
