Fly ControlFlies would be considered thumbs down the most recognized and aggravating insect pest on the plant, they are known to ruin picnics and outings and just down right drive us crazy. So how do you control the common house fly? Just as you do for commercial and restaurant accounts, so can you takes steps to control your flies on the outside.

  • Inspection of the area: You need to identify all areas that are allowing access to food and breeding areas, keep your trash lids shut and make sure they are cleaned out with a bleach solution regularly. Keep these breeding areas away from the entry points, which means, do not have your trash can at your back door, unless you just want to have flies inside.
  • Direct contact spray: This can be done when necessary, especially if you had something go completely wrong and the flies are everywhere, spraying them directly will help you get the population down and allow you to clean up the area.
  • Trapping and Monitoring: You may not need a commercial fly light, but they do make small units that can help catch those flies that make it inside not matter what you do, here in Texas it is just part of life and having a glueboard light that can be plugged in at night will catch all the ones the good old fly swatter could not.

Outside trapping, so of the oldies but favorites still hold their own, fly glue sticks are low cost and will work to catch large numbers and attract them away from your outdoor activities.

Applying a residual insecticide outside can do wonders for flies and other insects. Applying the chemical on surfaces, such as fences, trash cans and brick walls, where you know the flies to rest will help keep the flies in check.

Fly controlWhen we refer to filth flies we are usually speaking of the house fly, blow flies, bottles flies, and flesh flies. All of these have something in common and it is what they need to survive, some type of organic material. The house fly loves fermenting, fresh animal manure and this would be considered it’s favorite breeding medium. So it is a good idea to remove as much feces as possible from your yard, whether horse, cow or dog.

The blow fly and bottle fly are the medium sized fly with the metallic blue, greenish sheen and are both considered scavengers. The Blow fly will deposit their eggs in fresh or rotting flesh, on dead animals and in garbage areas. The flesh fly is a larger fly and is greyish in color with stripes on the thorax. These are the guys that all the forensic shows use to determine time of death and all that good stuff for the murder victim. But less exciting would be the dead rodents around the property or inside ones property which may give rise to the large amounts of these flies.

Good sanitation is necessary to keep all your filth fly populations in check in your outdoor space, adding all these additional layer of pest control products will insure that you can enjoy your outdoor space and be fly free.
