Minimizing Fly Infestation Tips

  • Deny flies access – keep windows and doors closed.
  • Flyscreens – fit flyscreens to windows, especially around kitchen and waste areas.
  • Cover food – flies spread diseases by landing on food before we eat it.
  • Clear away – clear food debris and liquid spillages from food consumption and preparation areas, under kitchen benches and appliances.
  • Dustbins / Compost bins – ensure all waste containers have tightly sealed lids.
  • Floormats – ensure that the build-up of grease is thoroughly cleaned every month.
  • Pets – clean up after pets. Not only are faeces a perfect breeding place for flies, but they may also land there before landing on your food.
  • Clear up dead flies – they provide a tasty snack for other pests such as carpet beetles.
  • Water storage – cover these with well-fitted lids.
  • Drains – ensure drains are kept clean and free of debris to reduce fly breeding sites.

FACT: Common house flies are attracted to decaying organic waste such as faeces and rotting meat, whereas fruit flies will look for sugary substances and feed more commonly on overripe fruit, spilt soft drinks and alcohol.
