House Fly Treatment & Control Services in the NYC Metro Area
Houseflies in your residential or commercial premise are annoying and a health hazard to you and your people. They commonly cause food contamination, poisoning, and spread diseases like salmonella and E Coli. These insects spread infections by acting as a bacteria and fungi medium of transportation.

An infestation could quickly deteriorate the reputation of a restaurant causing it to lose business. The presence of flies can also lead to hefty fines and license revocation by the department of health when an inspector is convinced that the restaurant or bar does not meet the required health and sanitation standards.
Therefore, all home and business owners should take it upon themselves to develop house fly treatment and pest control measures to keep their premises free from health risks.
How Your Home or Residential Property Got House Flies
Houseflies live and breed in the dirt and garbage around houses. They feed on rotten disposed food and human or animal fecal matter. They mostly thrive in areas with poor sanitation and drainage.
These insects are attracted to your home by air currents that bring them the odor of food or filth from your sewers.
They then take advantage of the unsealed door and window space, cracks and crevices in your wall to make their way into your house. Once in your home, these insects look for convenient places to breed and lay eggs. Mostly, they use your dust bin corners or garbage disposal locations to reproduce. Flies can also establish breeding zones behind your toilet near your sewer tanks.
After creating a breeding zone, these pests become more challenging to do away with. However, you can prevent a full-blown infestation if you act immediately you notice the presence of houseflies in your home or commercial facility by installing a UV fly trap.

Signs of a House Fly Infestation
A few houseflies around your home from time to time may not mean that you have an infestation. However, it can be a reminder that you may have an outbreak if you don’t take preventive measures soon. The most common signs of an infestation are;
Frequent Sighting of Groups of Houseflies

You need to thoroughly clean all drainage areas in the kitchen, toilets, and garbage areas to rid your environment of all dirt that may be attracting these insects.
Maggots in Your House
When you spot housefly maggots, it means that houseflies have found your home to be a suitable breeding place. You can discover maggots in garbage and waste disposal areas in your home and compound.
How We Remove House Flies From Your Home or Property
There are two methods of efficiently exterminating houseflies from your home; exclusion and chemical insecticides.
Exclusion and Sanitation
Hygiene is crucial when it comes to keeping an environment free of fries. Sanitizing to be precise is the first measure you should take. When you sanitize all the areas that these insects are likely to come from, you leave them with no place to thrive. Remove and dispose of all left-over food material that houseflies can feed on and use as breeding environments.
You should also ensure that your garbage bins and dumpster areas in the compound are regularly cleaned to deprive houseflies of locations to thrive. What’s more? Seal all openings on windows, doors, cracks, and electrical switches where houseflies can use as routes to get into your home. Taking these measures may reduce your chances of infestation and save you the trouble of having to call a house fly exterminator for home visits in New York City or New Jersey.
Use of Chemical Insecticides
There are several insecticide types that you can use for residential house fly control in NYC and NJ. The most common ones are residual concentrates, insecticide dust, and insecticide aerosols.
The choice of insecticide will depend on the extent of your infestation and the effect footprint that the pesticide will leave to your home or business facility. Consult a professional pest control company to get the best results when you are faced with an infestation.
Where House Flies Are Most Commonly Found
Houseflies can be found in all places with human habitation. They primarily prefer garbage and sewage areas because they live on human waste. They also prefer these environments because they have the best conditions for them to breed and their larvae to develop.
The Biology of Houseflies
