Fly Identification & Prevention

What are flies?

Flies are insects that play an essential role in nature. They are scavengers and help remove decaying plant and animal matter. Flies have unique spongy mouthparts because these insects don’t have teeth and can only consume liquids. When flies land on solid food, they release digestive fluids to liquefy the food so they can drink it.

Different species of flies that regularly find their way to and take over our Dover, NH, indoor and outdoor spaces include:

  • Blow flies
  • Bottle flies
  • Cluster flies
  • Drain flies
  • Fruit flies
  • House flies

Flies are prolific breeders. Depending on the species, female flies can lay hundreds of eggs at a time that can hatch in a matter of days. A few flies on your Dover, NH, property can quickly lead to a large, frustrating, difficult-to-eliminate infestation.

Are flies dangerous?

Flies are dangerous pests because of the significant health risks they pose. These insects feed on decaying organic matter and come into contact with disease-causing parasites, viruses, and bacteria daily. When these pests are around our cooking, food prep, and dining areas, they spread pathogens that, if we come into contact with them, will cause food poisoning, respiratory problems, or otherwise make us ill.

Another reason flies are dangerous is that some species bite and consume blood meals. Fly bites can be very painful, lead to secondary infections, and their presence can make you wary of spending time in your yard.

Why Do I Have a Fly Problem?

Flies are attracted to our Dover properties because they offer an almost neverending supply of food, water, places to lay their eggs, and shelter.

When flies have easy access to garbage, crumbs on tables, decaying fruits and vegetables in gardens, and animal excrement, they will take advantage and take over our properties.

In addition to food, moisture attracts flies. Flies love to lay their eggs in damp soil and decaying organic matter. Properties with poor drainage, clogged drains, and leaky pipes and fixtures attract the attention of flies.

Furthermore, the root cause of a fly problem can be a mouse or other small animal getting into your home and dying behind its walls. Flies will swarm to the decaying animal and use it as a feeding and breeding site.

Where Will I Find Flies?

Flies breed with vigor during periods of warm weather and, in Dover, are most problematic during the spring and summer seasons. When flies live in large numbers in our yards near our homes, they can easily get into our houses through drains, vents, open doors, windows, or other small openings they discover.

Once inside your home, flies, depending on their species, will hang out in several different areas. Clogged drains, wall voids with leaky pipes, garbage cans, windowsills, and lights are places flies gather and become a problem. 

How do I get rid of flies?

Flies are annoying insects. They live outside all around us in large numbers, making it seem impossible to keep flies away from your home. Yet, by implementing regular home pest control services, you can quickly eliminate your current fly problem and ensure they won’t take over your property in the future. Fly control is easy and stress-free when you partner with a professional!

Here at Dependable Pest Solutions, we offer a high level of service that you can count on and the peace of mind of knowing we will solve your home’s pest problems. For the most effective pest control solutions in Dover, NH, reach out to Dependable Pest Solutions!
