Flies are attracted to a variety of organic materials. These items include garbage, rotting organic matter, and dead animals. Their diets can be contaminated with bacteria, parasites, and other pollutants, making them a major health hazard. Some of these flies are also dangerous, delivering painful bites and transmitting illnesses. In addition, nuisance flies are particularly bothersome because they reproduce rapidly and annoy humans. Fortunately, there are many ways to eliminate flies. One of the most effective ways is by removing items that attract them. For example, remove any garbage, pet waste, or rotting organic materials from your home. In addition, close doors and windows to prevent flies from entering.
Another way to control house flies is to make sure you dispose of garbage in a sealed container. You should collect garbage at least twice a week in warm climates. This will break the life cycle of these insects. It is also important to ensure that your garbage can is covered tightly and that its lids are tightly sealed. In addition, you should also ensure that your indoor trash cans are cleaned weekly.
Another way to control the population of house flies is to prevent them from breeding. To prevent this, you can spray any areas that are prone to breeding areas with insecticides. You can also use fly baits to kill adult flies and keep their populations in check. Alternatively, you can use insect growth regulators on breeding areas. These will break the fly’s life cycle, preventing them from reproducing.
