Flies are everywhere – including in your home. However, there are ways you can get rid of them. You need an experienced Denton pest control company like Adams Exterminating Company to help you. This guide will tell you how to know if you've got a fly infestation, how dangerous it is to have flies, why you've got a fly problem, and why professional help is the best way to deal with a fly infestation.

How To Tell If You Are Dealing With A Fly Infestation

There are many types of flies in the Denton area, including:

  • Blow flies are ⅛ to ⅝ inch long and metallic green, blue, bronze, or black.
  • Drain flies are ⅛ inch long and resemble moths with tan to black wings and hairs that make them look furry.
  • Flesh flies are ⅖ to 1 inch long and have stripes in a checkerboard pattern of gray and white on their backs.
  • Fruit flies are ⅛ inch long with a tan body, red eyes, and translucent wings.
  • House flies are ⅛ to ¼ inch long with a gray body with black stripes running down the thorax.

While you may not be overly concerned about a single fly or two, when you begin to see clusters of flies around your home, it's time to think about how to get rid of flies because some of them may be dangerous. Call Adams Exterminating Company as soon as possible to get a free estimate.

How Dangerous Is It To Have Flies In Your House?

Flies in your Denton home can be dangerous. They're not just a nuisance pest; they could make you and your family very ill. Even though most flies don't bite, they do carry and spread diseases.

Fly eggs are often laid in feces or a dead, decaying animal carcass. That's where flies pick up the diseases they carry, which they spread by walking over everything you own. They're also constantly defecating, meaning you need to wash anything and everything a fly lands on in your home to avoid illnesses.

If you are wondering how to get rid of flies in your house, call Adams Exterminating Company. Our highly-trained service technicians can help you deal with your fly infestation.

Why Do I Have A Fly Problem In My House?

You may be wondering, "Why are flies in my house?" There are several reasons for a fly infestation, including:

  • House flies breed quickly. A single female fly can lay up to 900 eggs in her lifetime – which is only 15 to 30 days long.
  • Any rotting matter can attract flies. That could be a dirty diaper, fruit going bad in the bowl on your counter, or decomposing food at the bottom of your kitchen trash can. 
  • Your house is warm. Flies develop best in warm temperatures. 
  • You may have holes in your window or door screens, space under your door where the door sweep has failed, and gaps around your windows and doors where flies can gain entry. 

If you want to know how to repel flies at your home, it's simple: Get rid of all the rotting matter in your home, drop the temperature on your thermostat, and replace or repair window and door screens, door sweeps, and gaps around your doors and windows.
