There is no doubt that flies always come first to mind when we think of insects on public health. It is essential to contact a pest control Auckland service as soon as possible. Steam ‘n’ Dry Pest Control Auckland Service chooses the most appropriate fly removal method for the situation. Despite this, there are many misconceptions relating to the fly problem. Indeed, using a professional fly control service is the most effective way to prevent flies from your property.

The term “flies” is not precise. Everyday speech usually means insects that are either houseflies or other insects similar to their identity.

Flies will still be talked about collectively in the following discussion. As far as possible, those facets of behaviour are individual to species.

Why do I have flies?

Flies are attracted to decaying organic matter that provides them sustenance and a place to lay their eggs. Therefore, any residence with overstuffed plastic bags of waste or poorly closed garbage lids is prone to a fly infestation. While many homemade fly traps and remedies, these fly repellents are poor substitutes to proven fly bait and trapping methods used by professional pest control service providers.

Fly Abundance

Houseflies and blowflies increase or decrease according to seasonal and climatic factors. The housefly in New South Wales is a summer-early autumn fly, as are some blowflies, while others tend to have spring and autumn peaks.

The housefly population in Auckland vary considerably among areas. From one year to another, gross variations appear to be determined by climatic factors. Broadly, wet seasons tend to depress fly numbers while dry seasons increase them. Prolonged drought also inhibits their development. The precise effects of climate are not well understood.

Over the winter, a few adult flies take shelter in warm secluded places. Few maggots probably go through a prolonged larval development to emerge as adult flies with the onset of warm weather.

Dispersal of Flies

Around a minimal breeding place like a single manure heap, houseflies may be troublesome over a radius of sixty meters or so. Large breeding sites such as a garbage disposal area can supply flies to distances of at least 400 meters.

It is always worth attempting to trace fly densities to their maximum points in the case of complaints. Thus, it sometimes reveals the possible source area because beautiful places tend to cause adults to accumulate.

In the case of the bush fly, long-distance wind-borne migrations do indeed occur.

Flies and Disease

The diseases that flies can likewise bring into your property include:

  • Cholera
  • Tuberculosis
  • Typhoid fever
  • Dysentery

Fly Life History

The female housefly deposits eggs in batches, usually over a hundred, and may produce more than 2,000 eggs during her lifetime. Hatching takes place in eight to twelve hours, and the larva feeds and develops for several days and finally changes to a pupa from which the adult emerges in three to six days.

The bush fly can breed slightly faster than the housefly. Similarly, the blowflies in the main take a little longer to complete their development.

Flies spread diseases in one of two ways.

Each fly species has its behaviours and unique biological make-up. Look at where they may be coming from and if any conditions aid their development. Once Steam ‘n’ Dry Fly Control Auckland Services have identified the fly infestation factors, we can find the most effective treatment type. Besides using pesticide-based fly control methods and traps, Steam ‘n’ Dry Pest Control Auckland must take extra care to eliminate any breeding sites on your premises. They also provided bed bugs, ants, cockroaches, fleas, flies, carpet beetles, wasps, spiders, dust mites and rodent control.

The most common method of disease transmission is through faeces and vomit. When flies contact surfaces like food or kitchen counters, they excrete bodily fluids and pathogens.

Humans who eat contaminated food are then susceptible to disease.

The second way is through a bite. Also, fly bites break the skin and transfer pathogens into the bloodstream.

Fly Control Facts

1. House flies don’t bite. That’s about the only good news about these insects.

2. Female flies will lay about 30,000 eggs in their short life. Eggs will hatch in 10-14 days.

3. House flies have a relatively short lifespan. They are typically ranging about 30 days.

4. House flies feed off of food, rotting animal carcasses, or even faeces.

5. Flies vomit on food before they eat it.

Fly Control in Breeding Places

The decomposing vegetable wastes are particularly suitable for housefly breeding in horse manure, pig, cow and poultry manure and straw or even sawdust contaminated by animal wastes.

Any of these materials produce many flies. Most people may be worried by the flies bred from a few cubic feet of stacked animal manure. Other potential breeding places are so various that examples of minor ones are found almost anywhere.

The litter in poultry sheds are often without any evidence for the prominent part of the year, even though the lesser housefly.

Housefly Control

The interiors of houses can be protected from flies by a screening of doors and windows.

If there is a practical community approach to the fly problem, this must start in the kitchen. Drained first if wet and placed in garbage tins with close shutting lids.

The householder should keep the garbage can clean. Also, make sure that the bottom is sound, preferably stand it on concrete. At such a distance from the backdoor, any flies attracted to it will not enter the house when the door is open. About the fly life history, the desired frequency of garbage collection is twice weekly.

Fly Control by Insecticides

Compared with 40 years ago, there has been a reduction of the fly problems in suburban and industrial areas and some, but not all, country townships. Foods kept without refrigeration under gauze domes or in gauze safes. Most of these practices have virtually disappeared, and insecticidal fly control has played no part in this.

Induction in Fly Control

Steam ‘n’ Dry Pest Control Auckland Service primary objective in fly control is linked with the diseases they can carry. Pest Control Auckland Service secondary objective is freedom from annoyance. Coupled with both is a feeling that flies are not acceptable.

Often forgotten, diseases for which flies may be responsible are transmitted by other means with equal facility. It is also not good enough to control flies if we neglect personal hygiene.

Essential to both disease and fly control is community hygiene and sanitation.

In urban areas, the abundance of flies is an index of the community’s general sanitary status. In-country sites, this remains true for houseflies.

Common Fly Species in Houses

When the environment is unsuitable, more species will enter houses prone to do so with any consistency under normal conditions.

The housefly.

This species breeds in decaying or fermenting organic material, preferably slightly moist. The matter directly or indirectly of vegetable origin is preferred. Sites like decomposing vegetable material, garbage, grass clippings, horse, pig, poultry and other animal manures. Potential breeding media may be free of maggots for long periods then suddenly become highly active.

 The flies are most frequently found inside buildings, at home and freely visit food wastes.

High densities usually indicate a nearby primary breeding source within a few hundred feet or sometimes up to a quarter of a mile away. The current practice of dealing with these situations only when they are the subject of a complaint is not helpful to the overall problem.

Uncommon Species in Houses

The European green blowfly.

This species is an introduced one which has a solid relationship to garbage. It is also the dominant species emerging from garbage dumps that can maintain high population densities. If this were the only species breeding in the trash, there would be no problem as it does not appear to be necessary as a house visitor.

This species’ use as an indicator lies in the fact that it appears to be far less sensitive to adverse climatic conditions. Also, it is present throughout the year in particularly suitable situations. Furthermore, it does not move far from the area in which it breeds.
