Plymouth experts in dealing with Flies

Flies are considered pests because they pose a health risk to both humans and animals, spreading diseases and conditions such as salmonella, E. Coli, diarrhoea and dysentery.

If a small fly problem is not dealt with, they have the potential to spread quickly, with some fly species able to mature from eggs to adults in just seven days.

Falcon Environmental Services are experts in dealing with fly infestations and have a variety of methods of fly control and are well placed to advise you on the best way to resolve an infestation before it becomes a serious problem.

Different types of flies in the UK

There are a few types of flies that you can expect to see in your home in Plymouth, Devon or Cornwall. They include:

  • Blue Bottle – attracted to rotting flesh or food
  • Cluster – tend to live in roof spaces or cavity walls
  • Fruit Fly – like fermenting fruit
  • Mosquitoes – cause itchy bites and are more commonly found near water

Preventing flies from setting up home

Prevention is better than cure, as they say, so in the first instance you must ensure that you exercise good hygiene. Don’t let fruit fester in the fruit bowl and don’t leave rubbish lying around that may attract Blue Bottle flies.

If you have a wheelie bin, in the height of summer, it is not uncommon to find maggots at the bottom after an extended period of time. Don’t ignore them. Clean out the bin with boiling water and make sure you get rid of them all.

Having a maggot infested bin in close proximity to your property is going to encourage Plymouth flies into your house.

Clean up dog mess in the garden as well – this is an attractive proposition for flies. Who wants them in their house after they have been feasting on your dog’s waste?

Getting rid of unwanted flies in your home

Some people use fly traps or those sticky traps that hang down from the ceiling. Of course, this will capture the odd fly but who wants a fly trap with dead flies stuck to it in the middle of their kitchen?

If the problem is more severe and you are finding more and more flies, then it is time to call ing the South West pest control experts who will get rid of your flies and stop them from coming back,

I was recommended Falcon to remove a wasp nest from the fascia’s which turned out to be two nests. I can’t rate them highly enough and their quick response was thoroughly followed up until completely sorted. They are honest, friendly and reliable and I would not hesitate to recommend them. It is great to support local people who are good at their work and this is a team who really deserve exactly this. Thank you.
