Fly Control

Don’t you just hate it when a fly lands directly on you? Not only is it irritating but also disgusting. You have no idea where it’s been. Not to mention the sound of it buzzing around can get quite annoying. In addition, having flies in your home can get embarrassing, especially when you have guests over. That alone could make people second guess about your hygiene and house maintenance.

We’ve all had our fair share of experience with flies. Usually, a rolled up newspaper or swatter would do the trick to get rid of flies. Unfortunately, sometimes it’s not as simple to rid ourselves of just that one fly. You have to understand that flies are capable of infesting our homes in a rapid pace. The common fly has a short life span of about 3-5 days. However, a fly is capable of reproducing just days after it is born. From 75 to 100 eggs per batch, Flies are definitely a pest to worry about. Without quick treatment of your fly infestation, it will get worse and worse. Moreover, flies can potentially carry and spread many different diseases and illnesses including tuberculosis, anthrax, parasitic worms and chlamdyia are just to name a few. This list alone should get you worried on how pesterous flies can be and how vital it is to get rid of Flies as soon as you notice an overwhelming amount around you. If you’re facing these problems right now, well you came to the right place for a solution on how to kill Flies.

Fly Identification

Before you try to get rid of Flies on your own or before you try to find ways on how to kill Flies with a certain product, it's important to identify the pest first. It is crucial to find out what species of fly is causing a nuisance in or around your home. The wide variation of biology amongst the different species will require different treatment methods to effectively get rid of them. Each species has a different location preference for their larval developmental sites. Therefore, it is crucial to understand the differences of their species. The size of the fly will vary depending on the species. They will range in size anywhere from 6 mm - 55 mm. Their color may also vary from black to a brownish color. All adults have wings and their hind wings are reduced to small, knobbed appendage like structures. Their antennae will also be different according to each species but generally, they are short in length. In addition, flies have compound eye structures.

Larva, or more commonly known as maggots, are dirty-whitish in color. Because they do not possess true legs, they seem almost worm-like. The fly larvae generally does not have a developed head, therefore, eyes and antennae are often very reduced and even absent. The pupa, however, will vary between species. Some species of fly pupa will encase themselves in a silk cocoon and others will simply develop within the food. Once they emerge from the pupa stage, adult flies do not live long and will only survive long enough to reproduce. The development of flies is a rapid process. Females will lay their eggs close to the food source. Their offspring will then hatch as soon as they are laid; sometimes they even hatch inside the mother before they are laid. Laying the eggs as close to the food as possible allows for prompt feeding as soon as the offspring are hatched. They will continue to intake as much food as they possibly can until they are fully matured. Adult flies mainly serve as a means of reproduction. The entire life cycle will range anywhere from 6 days to 50 days.

Fly Infestation

Flies can be found in every corner of the world (with the exception of Antarctica). There are over 120,000 fly species. However, the worry should only derive from the usual house flies. Some of the typical flies that invade homes are listed above: house flies, fruit flies, horse flies and drain flies. Effective fly control comes in a variety of different methods. Using insect sprays from your local stores will get the job done when encountering a medium sized infestation. However, the problem is usually more problematic than medium sized. Utilize professional fly control products to get the job done regardless of enormity.

How to Get Rid of Flies

Fly removal will consist of several different processes which includes identification, sanitation, inspection and mechanical, as well as pesticide control. Such things as identification, inspection and sanitation are preliminary processes that a homeowner should make to prevent further fly infestations. Proper identification of the fly species will help you identify where their breeding sites are, what areas you need to target and how you can treat the infestation. Because some species of flies are harmful to people and animals, inspection will allow you to know whether or not the infestation is a threat or just a nuisance. Moreover, sanitation is necessary to prevent further infestations from occurring in your home or business.

Flies often infest, feed on, and breed in areas of filth or fermenting and decaying matter. Sanitation will involve anything that will get rid of these sites. Keeping areas clean and without a food source for the flies will help prevent infestations from occurring. Last but not least, manual control of infestations that are already present is necessary. This will include mechanical control as well as applying correctly labeled insecticides in areas that are concentrated with fly infestations. Mechanical control involves the use of screens and caulk to keep the flies from entering the premises as well as traps (glue boards, fly light traps, sticky ribbon traps and etc.). Windows and door frames should be sealed tightly and lose ones should be fixed or replaced immediately. Insecticide application targets all areas of the infestation including breeding sites, larva habitats, as well as any surface that the adults may rest on. Pesticides like pressurized aerosol sprays and liquid concentrates promote contact kill of adult flies. There are also bait materials in granule and liquid form. Last but not least, ULV applications or misting applications that are like foggers kill flies inside the house as well as outdoors and around commercial areas. All product labels should be reviewed before any pesticide is applied.

Q. What company should I choose one power spraying Cy kick, the other power spraying a product called demand cs. Both coming on a quarterly basis
I've decided to use a pest service on my home in Austin tx, I know the heat breaks down product as well as rains that we get in the Austin area every once in a while, I've broke my decision down to two companies, one is saying the product they will power spray is Cy-kick. The other company says they will be power spraying the product Demand cs. My main bugs that we are dealing with are scorpions, spiders, Beatles, and an occasional wasp.. Both companies are around the same price both wanting to come out quarterly. What's the main differences and if you were in my shoes and with your expertise, which product would you choose to be treated on your home for those specific issues.
A.   We recommend using Demand CS because it is a micro-encapsulated product. Therefore, Demand CS has a longer residual time.
