How to Treat for Flies in House
If you have a fly problem, there are multiple methods for fly control, but how to kill flies is not always the same as how to get rid of flies.
Fly control methods for these pests vary depending on the time of year. Fly removal techniques that work in summer months, are not always effective when the weather grows cold. Additionally, views on the best ways to get rid of flies differ as well.
One thing that doesn't vary is the fact that during the summer, fly populations tend to skyrocket. One of the most effective methods of fly removal is eliminating their breeding grounds.
In winter, properly sealing cracks in the walls or flooring of your home, screening entry points and considering the use of a spray insecticide designed to repel flies. Overwintering flies will look for entry points so that they can hide in wall voids or attics and wait for warmer weather.
The most effective ways to keep flies out of your home are properly cleaning and maintaining outdoor garbage cans and pet foods, and making sure that windows and doors are properly screened off.
If the above methods won't treat the fly infestation in your home keep the following in mind when it comes to fruit flies. These flies multiply quickly, and can seem impossible to remove. This is because once inside a home, these flies are able to reproduce in multiple places. They are commonly found on or near ripe or rotting fruit, dirty trash cans or recycling bins, under fridges and in garbage disposals and poorly-emptying drains. Finding the source of the fruit fly problem may take some effort, but that's the only sure-fire way to get rid of them.
In conclusion - fly control methods that employ preventative techniques and breeding ground reduction should always be tried before the use of a pesticide or insecticide. But if these methods aren't working – don’t fly off the handle. Call a pest management professional to help you choose the fly removal option that is best for you and your home.
