Fly Control & Extermination Information
Non-biting flies, such as houseflies, are not only nuisance pests, but they are also responsible for transmitting diseases and contaminating food. For instance, flies are capable of contaminating food and transferring more than 100 pathogens, including malaria, salmonella and tuberculosis. Food contamination is one of the main reasons that fly pest control is so important.
The house fly is the most common fly found in and around homes. It has a worldwide distribution and is prominent in Canada or the United States.
Fruit flies get their common name from their small size and fondness of some fruits. Small fruit flies are nuisance pests, but may act as disease vectors.
The cluster fly, Pollenia spp.
Cluster flies are slightly larger and thinner than house flies at 3/8 of an inch. They are a dull gray (not metallic like some other Calliphoridae) with golden hairs on the thorax and a gray checkerboard pattern on the abdomen.
