How to get rid of flies
Flies are a national nuisance in Australia. There are about 30,000 different species in Australia. Flies contaminate food, dirty surfaces and spread disease to humans and animals. Flies feed by vomiting on their food source prior to eating. They consume decaying matter, carcasses, garbage and faeces. It’s no wonder they are the number one pest in both domestic and commercial settings.
There are many different approaches to fly control, but the 2 best ways on how to get rid of flies is by
- Physical exclusion – This includes common sense solutions such as keeping doors shut, installing fly screens and sealing entry points.
- Sanitation – This begins by keeping surfaces clean, sealing rubbish bins, covering food, remove animal faeces, decaying plant related material and remove stale and stagnant water.
When it comes to professional fly control particularly in the commercial setting, inspection is the key to sanitation. It is vital to uncover the breeding ground source to stop the spread of larvae. Professional pest controllers are trained to identify the fly species and know where to inspect and what to look for.
