House flies can be a real nuisance when they are flying around. But they can also transmit diseases, so it is important to get rid of them. House fly control is not always as easy as it sounds. They prefer corners and edges or thin objects to rest on. Indoors, they rest on floors, walls and ceilings during the day. Outdoors, they will rest on plants, the ground, fence wires, garbage cans, etc. Night resting places are usually near sources of food and 5 to 15 feet off the ground. Ultra Power provides a integrated Pest Control service for Flies by spray and baiting treatments.
These pests can spread microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi and viruses to the surfaces on which they land. They also can regurgitate during the feeding process, which enables them to transmit disease organisms to their landing surface.
Sometimes called moth flies because of their appearance, drain flies are covered with long hairs and breed in and feed on decaying organic material. They are also known as filter and sewage flies, since they commonly breed in raw sewage under slabs where undetected broken pipes may be located. Like mosquitoes, drain flies need standing water to breed.
Averaging 1/8-inch long, these small flies prefer to lay their eggs near fruits and vegetables, in addition to other decaying organic material. Fruit flies abound near fermented materials in trash cans and floor drains. Several species of fruit flies can be a problem: the black-eyed fruit fly (Drosophila replete) can often be a problem year-round.
