Flies can enter a house through a number of different entry points. These include the roof vents and drier vents. It’s also possible for flies to enter through small cracks around windows and doors. Sealing up the openings will help keep them out. Make sure to seal up these areas with a quality caulk or sealant.
You can hire a pest control company to get rid of the infestation and prevent it from happening again. The company will provide you with tips on prevention and preventive measures to keep flies away. It’s difficult to get flies to leave a home once they’re in. Therefore, deterrence is a better approach.
Another common entry point for flies is an air conditioner. Flies are attracted to warm air and will follow the warm air to the air vents. You can seal off these areas by hanging fly stickers on the side of the air conditioner or window. You can also hang flies-proof curtains and screens over the air conditioner.
The first step in resolving a fly infestation is to determine the source of the infestation. Fortunately, pest management professionals have the tools to deal with a wide variety of fly problems. They should be familiar with all stages of insects, including the pupae. An experienced PCO should be able to identify common filth flies without the need for magnification. Fly larvae are more difficult to identify with magnification, so entomologists may need to help.
