The health benefits of competent fly control

It’s well known that flies have the potential to spread many diseases. They can pick up all sorts of organisms while feeding in bins, drains, on dead animals and both human and animal faeces.

Some of these types of bacteria can stay with a fly for days. Meaning they can be passed onto any surface a fly touches. This includes human food, kitchen benches and even directly onto our skin.

Some health issues commonly caused and spread by flies include diarrhea, typhoid, leprosy, poliomyelitis and even eye infections such as epidemic conjunctivitis.

Fly control around the home

If you’re searching the internet you will no doubt find endless options for DIY fly treatments. It’s important to consider the longevity and reliability of these systems.

Many DIY systems are often solely reliant on baiting. Although baiting can be successful, it can often attract more flies than it catches. It will often need to be reapplied on a regular basis. Baits not applied in the right areas will seemingly be useless.

There are however a few simple steps you can take around your home to help reduce fly numbers:

  • Keep windows and doors closed
  • Keep food covered
  • Good food hygiene
  • Empty indoor bins every night
  • Clear water sources such as blocked drains and leaky taps

How long does professional fly spray last?

A female fly will lay up to 2000 eggs in her 3 to 4 week life cycle. Due to this breeding pattern it can be very easy to be over run quickly without any long term management system in place.

At Jim’s Termite and Pest Control, we will assess your site and offer a tailored plan to help keep your flies away longer.

We offer a range of treatment options including:

  • Surface sprays
  • Dusts
