Do Flies Come Out in the Winter?

In the winter, flies hibernate. They will spend the cooler days away from humans and lay their eggs on decaying materials. While this behavior is similar to hibernation, the adult flies do not actually hibernate. Although certain species of flies do hibernate during the winter months, house flies are not among them.

While it is not common for flies to come out during the winter, they can easily find their way into your home. They are generally harmless and will not harm you unless you leave them in your home for an extended period of time. But if you can’t bear their presence, you can contact Griffin Pest Solutions to get rid of them.

In early October and mid-August, you may notice cluster flies buzzing around your house. These flies can be a nuisance because they like to lay eggs in a wall. You can control the population of these bugs by sealing cracks and gaps in your house.

In winter, some types of flies come out to breed. Cluster flies and house flies can be particularly problematic if they are located indoors. In addition, these pests may have a higher chance of coming out during the winter, especially if you have a tall structure.
