If you’re going on a holiday to Australia this summer, you should know how bad the flies are there. Despite their popularity with tourists, flies are an unpleasant nuisance. And they can make it hard to eat outside. Fortunately, you can use fly nets, or wear fly veils, to help keep the flies at bay.
The personal fly is a common annoyance, whether you’re in the city or outback. It buzzes around your mouth and ears, and can be very bothersome. In addition to this, you can use a homemade repellent. You can mix cedarwood creme with rosemary to repel flies.
March flies are stout-bodied flies that range in size from 6 to 25mm. These flies can cause severe allergic reactions. Their bites can cause hives, skin swelling, and fever. Some people can even have a life-threatening reaction, called anaphylaxis.
Large scale commercial growers can spend millions of dollars treating their fruit fly infestations. The costs can add up, resulting in higher prices for consumers. The flies also reduce orchard productivity, and entire crops can be rendered worthless. Further, these flies can make access to markets more expensive and limit the producers’ opportunities. The pests can also damage some of Australia’s harder-skinned commodities, such as tomatoes, eggplant, and mangoes.
