House Fly

There are over 100,000 species of flies in the world. The common housefly is categorized as filth fly because they bread in garbage, rotten food and manure. More than 100 pathogens associated with the house fly may cause disease in humans and animals, including typhoid, cholera, bacillary dysentery, tuberculosis, anthrax ophthalmia and infantile diarrhea, as well as parasitic worms.

Pathogenic organisms are picked up by flies from garbage, sewage and other sources of filth, and then transferred on their mouthparts and other body parts, through their vomit, feces and contaminated external body parts to human and animal food.

From egg stage to adult may take only ten days and many generations of flies can be produced in a short span of time. Control is therefore ongoing.  Flies are not wanted in restaurants and food handling establishments and can actually spread diseases when they land on exposed food products.   We are experts at controlling flies around homes and restaurants.
