Getting rid of flies can be annoying and sometimes difficult. There are more than 120,000 different species in the world and although most of them live only about 3 weeks, they are consistently reproducing. Each female fly lays about 500 eggs in her lifetime and those eggs become larvae within about a day and then in less than a week they are fully grown and ready to mate. Most of the time flies populate in areas where they can find rotten natural materials or feces. In those areas fly control is especially important.
Flies, unfortunately, are a part of everybody’s lives, some more than others. In some parts of the world and in different fields, flies and maggots can be very useful.

Coming home from vacation you may have stepped into your bathroom that’s been unused in a while and seen tiny flies near your drain. If you see a lot of them, you may need drain fly control.

You do not need to worry about getting bit because they do not bite at all. In fact, they do not carry any diseases at all harmful to humans. So as far as flies go, they are pretty harmless.
