Common Fly Species
Many people are surprised to learn how many different types of flies there are. There are over 15,000 different species of flies in North America alone! While the lifespan of a single fly is relatively short (many fly species only live for a few days), they are able to reproduce very quickly and in astonishing numbers. Once flies get into your home, you can have an infestation on your hands in a matter of days.
Common fly species in the Knoxville area include:
- Bottle fly
- Drain fly
- Fruit fly
- Stable fly
Flies are particularly dangerous to have around your home as they contaminate everything on which they land. Flies have been known to spread typhoid fever, dysentery, and food poisoning. If you have a fly problem, you should take care of it sooner rather than later. Our fly control specialists in Knoxville can help.
Getting Rid of Flies
There are many fly control products on the market, and which can be purchased at the hardware or drug store. However, these methods rarely take care of the root cause of your fly problem. Fly control often requires more than elimination. While it is important to kill the flies in your home and break their lifecycle, you also want to be sure you are eliminating the reason they are there in the first place.
Ways to prevent flies from getting into your home include:
- Making sure your windows and doors are properly sealed and screened
- Putting away and sealing pet food containers
- Clearing food waste and dirty dishes
- Keeping garbage areas, inside and out, tidy and covered
- Cleaning drains and garbage disposals
Flies are often drawn inside looking for water, warmth, and places to breed. Identifying what flies find attractive about your home, and how they are getting in, can go a long way in solving your fly problem. Begin the process of eliminating flies from your home today.
