Flies have been a nuisance insect for thousands of years. They affect us because they can transmit diseases. Flies such as the common house fly breed in rotten food, manure, and garbage. Even on animal excrement. A fly can mature from egg to adult in as few as ten days. This quick maturity can cause a severe fly problem in a short period of time. Getting rid of flies long term begins with hygiene around your home or business.
To kill the existing fly population insecticides are generally used. The insecticides come in residual forms, aerosols, fogging materials, and baits. Fly Lights with distinctive UV spectrums are also popular for attracting flies and trapping them but this is usually in a business environment. Fly lights are also most popular in commercial establishments because they work well.
