Flies

For fly control it would be mainly compmise thorough insecticidal spray intially and then misting or fogging inside and outside premises. before treatment ,we will ceck whether any stagnent waters area around the premises.

Flies: The Housefly, Musca domestica is found worldwide and lives in close proximity to humans. Because houseflies can carry many diseases of humans and domestic animals, it is important to keep their populations low. Understanding their habits and life cycle can help you eliminate the most flies at the lowest cost to you and the environment.

The housefly is a nonbiting fly measuring about ¼ inch long. Adult houseflies have two wings and four lengthwise black stripes on their backs. The abdomen typically appears checkered. Houseflies are often confused with flesh flies and stable flies. A flesh fly feeds on blood and its mouthparts protrude from the front of its head.

Control Measures: Three types of control methods are used to suppress houseflies. Cultural, biological and chemical.

Cultural control: cultural control means changing the environment to prevent houseflies from developing. The best cultural method is to properly dispose of any organic matter, such as vegetable or other food by-products. Where houseflies might lay eggs. Place these materials in garbage bags and tie the bags securely. Remove all food residues and clean your garbage cans weekly. Another cultural method is to keep houseflies out of homes and businesses by

  • Keeping windows screened and doors closed.
  • Placing exhaust (blower) system above doors and
  • Installing doors that open and close mechanically


Sticky traps and ultraviolet light traps placed around a home or business also can reduce housefly populations. Hang resin strips (flypaper) in infested areas where there is little or no air movement. Install light traps where they cannot be seen by flies outdoors to avoid attracting more insects to the building. To make the traps more noticeable to the flies in a room, place them at least 15 feet away from doors and other entryways and in darker areas away from bright lights and sunlight. Place the traps at least 5 feet away from food preparation areas to minimize the risk of food contamination. It is important to maintain the traps. Replace the bulbs each spring just before the peak season of fly activity because older bulbs lose their attractiveness to insects. Also clean them out regularly because dead flies serve as food for other insects.

Chemical control

When necessary, insecticides can help suppress housefly populations. Fly baits, such as Quick Bayt and Golden Malrin are usually sugar-based and contain a compound that attracts the adult flies. Flies that feed on these baits are killed by the insecticide they digest.
