Various species of Flies can enter our premises for numerous reasons and are not only annoying but can cause serious health and hygiene issues.
Probably the most common variety of flies to be found in our homes and workplaces are The Blow Fly (Calliphora erythrocephala) which includes the Bluebottle and Greenbottle, The Cluster Fly (Pollenia rudis), The Common House Fly (Musca domestica), The Lesser House Fly (Fannia canicularis) and The Fruit Fly (Drosophilla spp)
Most fly infestations can grow rapidly and have the potential to spread diseases such as E-coli and Salmonella, however most fly infestations can be avoided so long as strict hygiene practices are put in place. Keep all food preparation surfaces clean at all times and clear away residues and spillages. Keep bin areas clean and tidy.
Various DIY products are available to deal with fly problems and depending on the species, products such as aerosols and flypapers may have the desired effect. Electronic Fly Machines and Flyscreens are also available for preventative measures.
For more serious infestations Anti-Pest Environmental Services offer Fogging and ULV treatments, and a residual insecticide treatment to eradicate the problem and to ensure that the flies do not return.
