Identifying & Examining Flies In Your Establishment
Before we begin exterminating, there needs to be a clear, concise plan in place so we get things done properly the first time around. We understand that you have a life and each day you have to deal with these flies is an unnecessary hassle. So our technicians will start by trying to identify exactly what type of flies have invaded your home, place of business, building or facility. These are a few of the most common types:
Almost everyone you know has at some point or another encountered a house fly. These swarming pests are about 1/8” to 1/4” long and are of a grayish color. For the lone fly to buzz in, a single swat with a newspaper will do just fine. However, frequent visits or an outright infestation will require the skills of a pest management company. These flies are disgusting and will feed on everything from feces to human food. They go from new-borns to adults in as little as 7 days and are born in a variety of unsanitary places. Females lay as much as seventy-five to one hundred and fifty eggs at a time in moist, rotting areas including garbage, manure, rotten meat, or other types of waste.
You’ve also probably seen this fly around. They also go by the term “bottle flies” and the name “blow” comes from the environment their larvae is grown into. They are commonly found infested within bloated or rotting animal carcasses. They have always posed a problem for meat processing plants, garbage dumps, slaughterhouses or anywhere else meat is served and discarded. They are a bit larger than the house fly and slightly metallic in appearance. It’s usually of a blue or green hue.
Of all the flies out there, these are some of the most innocent looking. Their appearance usually doesn’t raise any cause for alarm. Most of our customers just mistake them for small moths and go about their day. They only start to become a major problem upon reproducing by crawling into kitchen drains, bathroom sinks, showers, bathtubs, outdoor drain, and stagnant pipes that aren’t used regularly. The most irritating thing about the Drain Fly is its ability to squeeze through screen doors (as an adult) and sneak into your pipes or drains. Once they get in, they will feed on waste products, standing water, decaying food and even human waste. This makes them a serious threat because they carry disease which can be transmittable to people in your home or business.
Just as the name suggest, fruit flies feed on decaying fruits and vegetables. Although this is where they get their name from, they can also be found hovering around trash piles and garbage bins looking for a meal. These are the flies you encounter in your home or facility that almost seem to spontaneously generate. We know what you’re thinking: “Where do they come from?” Its simple really, a female fruit fly can lay up to 500 eggs at once. A complete life cycle is possible as little as eight to ten days later! They are a common nuisance not just in the kitchen of your home but mostly within restaurants, food establishments, and bars. They might be considered just a “nuisance” if they didn’t carry pathogens that could spread infectious disease to humans.
Similar to fruit flies when it comes to size, they are tiny weak pests that seem to appear out of nowhere. Depending on the species, they could be biting or non-biting flies. Gnats are drawn to lights so naturally at night, if a door is left open with the lights on you’re an easy target. They reproduce as much as 10,000 eggs at a time. Although they are not known to be a vector of disease such as other flies, they can in fact produce a serious allergic reaction depending on the person. You can see them swarming around lights at night in huge swarms as this is what they are attracted to. Once they find a way into your home, you may have a very serious time getting rid of them. It’s not so much their speed because they are easily caught, but the sheer amount of them.
