Filth Flies

Filth Flies

Where they live: manure & filth

About the Pest:

House flies, face flies and blowflies develop in manure or filth and can transmit diseases as they move between filth and human food. In as little as 7 to 14 days, larvae develop into adult flies.

How to Control:

To control them, eliminate the breeding sites of flies. Dispose of trash regularly, clean animal feed, and remove animal feces. When needed, ultra low volume sprays can be helpful to knock down adult fly populations. Also, state of the art fly lights can be purchased that do a very good job at keeping fly populations down. These are available in a variety of styles.
