A fly, also known as a housefly, is a species of fly that is commonly found in and around human habitats such as homes, restaurants, and other buildings. They are typically gray in color with four dark stripes on their thorax (the middle part of their body). Flies have large compound eyes and two wings, and are approximately 6-7 mm in length.
Flies can be a real nuisance, especially during the summer in Arkansas, and are often considered pests because they can contaminate food and surfaces with their saliva and feces, and can also transmit diseases to humans and animals. Proper sanitation and the use of insecticides are common methods used to control household fly populations.
When it comes to getting rid of flies, Bug Pro LLC uses a variety of methods during the process depending on the particular situation. We begin by doing a thorough inspection of the property to identify areas where flies are likely to breed and rest. This can include areas with standing water, decaying organic matter, and garbage or food waste.
We encourage customers to participate in the process by understanding that good sanitation practices are essential for fly control. During the eradication process, we perform cleaning and sanitation procedures to eliminate food and water sources for flies, such as removing garbage and cleaning up spilled food.
Identifying and sealing off entry points, such as cracks and crevices, can also help prevent flies from entering a home or business. This can include installing screens on windows and doors, and sealing gaps around pipes and other openings.
We often use insecticides to control flies and their infestations. This can include baits, sprays, and foggers. Insecticides are typically used in areas where flies are active, such as garbage rooms, kitchens, and outdoor areas. We also use traps to capture flies which can include sticky traps, light traps, and baited traps. Such traps can be very effective in reducing the fly population in a specific area.
At Bug Pro LLC, we customize our fly control approach based on the specific needs of the property and the severity of the fly infestation. Generally a combination of sanitation, exclusion, and targeted use of insecticides and traps can be effective in controlling flies.
