About this pest

Short Description of Flies and Their Behavior:

Flies are fast-breeding insects commonly found around homes, particularly near food sources and garbage. With over 120,000 species globally, house flies and fruit flies are the most notorious pests. Flies are known for their quick breeding cycles and their ability to carry diseases, making them more than just a nuisance. They typically hover around decomposing organic matter, fermenting fruit, and open food sources.

Why You Might Be Seeing Flies in Your Home:

  • Open Food Sources: Flies are attracted to exposed food, sugary drinks, and fermenting fruit.

  • Garbage Buildup: Unsealed garbage cans and compost piles serve as ideal breeding grounds.

  • Drain and Plumbing Issues: Fruit flies often lay eggs in moist, dirty drains.

  • Pet Waste: Dog droppings or cat litter boxes can attract flies seeking a place to lay eggs.

  • Outdoor Sources: Overripe fruit on trees or garbage bins near windows and doors can attract flies indoors.
