Flies

Flies, for the homeowner and business owner, are more than just a nuisance; they can carry and transmit disease. Given the right conditions and breeding sources flies can quickly reproduce, causing massive infestations.Common flies in our area consist of House Flies, Bottle Flies, Cluster Flies, Fruit Flies, Stable Flies, Horse Flies and more. In general, flies inside a structure occur for a reason and determining the source of fly activity may require the experience of a professional. A detailed inspection of the property may be necessary to find the potential breeding and infiltration sources of fly activity.

Treatment Options

Control strategies available for fly control are entry exclusion, trapping, residual pesticide treatments, baiting and sanitation improvements.

Our inspection services will determine the best options for fly management in your situation.
