If you’ve ever wondered how flies see so clearly, one of the possible answers is that their eyes are polarized, or a specific color. This type of light allows flies to move around freely. Flies’ eyes are composed of thousands of different visual receptors. This allows them to process the information in a much larger area than a human’s eye.
But this doesn’t mean that flies cannot see the window. In fact, they often find it difficult to distinguish an open window from a closed one. This is because flies don’t have the natural instincts to detect glass windows. Despite their huge wing span and large angle of vision, flies can’t detect a window that’s not transparent.
It’s also worth noting that flies prefer places where they can find shelter and warmth. During winter, many insects seek out places where they can hibernate. While the home provides them with warmth and light, cluttered areas are also ideal for hiding flies. As spring approaches, these bugs may come out of hiding and begin to pollinate the area.
Fortunately, it’s possible to lure flies away from windows with the help of light. As they are drawn to light, flies will try to make their way through windows to escape. During bright, sunny days, the bright light in your windows can entice them away.
