How to Protect your home from Flies
House flies, there aren’t too many complimentary things we can say about them; so how can you protect your home from flies? Anywhere there is a supply of food, water and somewhere to nest, is an ideal habitat all common pests. Flies are no different, so the first step to protect your home form flies is to eliminate food sources and habitats they might like to inhabit.
Flies feed on a wide variety of food sources. Some flies taste with their feet as well as their mouths, so the species that feed on garbage or flesh can inadvertently collect dead organisms on their bodies and transfer to your food. This can also be a potential problem for humans, as they can spread germs of they bite us. In this regard, sanitation is your best weapon to protect your home from flies.
House fly control is also a matter of exclusion, elimination of breeding areas such as garbage bins, areas with bad drainage and open food sources must be contained or removed. Keep your windows and doors screened or closed when possible and consider using disposable or electronic fly traps to reduce activity in these areas. When it comes to flies, it doesn’t matter how pleasant and well presented a home may appear, flies will take any opportunity to breed.
