CleanedRite Pest Control London - Fly Control Information


 Flies

Flies are considered to be one of the most evolved insects known to man. They rely heavily on sight for survival and are generally extremely sensitive to movement.

Most fly species are more of a nuisance than a pest, however flies such as mosquitoes, which feed on blood, can also cause painful skin reactions when they bite and can also transmit infectious diseases.

Fly Species

There are an estimated 240,000 species of fly, with the common house fly regarded as being one of the most widely distributed animals on the planet. Of course, not all species are found within the UK, however some of the most common types of fly you may encounter are listed below.

 

Bluebottles.

Pest Control

We will carry out an assessment, we then use an insecticidal fogging treatment and insecticide smoke generators if necessary.  This should be safe after 4-6 hours.

For re-occurring problems an electronic fly killing units can be used to provide a way of controlling them.

 

Cluster Flies

 

Cluster flies are common in Europe and the UK.  They cluster and hibernate in numbers, in buildings. A single house, single building or row of similar buildings can be chosen year after year by cluster flies.

SIGNS OF A CLUSTER FLY PROBLEM:

WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE

Cluster flies are about 6 - 10mm long and slightly bigger than the house fly.  They have a 10mm wingspan, a bristly yellow and black marked abdomen.

IMPLICATIONS OF HAVING CLUSTER FLIES

HOW DO WE GET RID OF CLUSTER FLIES?

Complete control of Cluster flies can be difficult as during hibernation, they are concealed in walls, attics and window frames. 

We will carry out an assessment of the attic, to ensure there are no bats and water tanks are covered prior to treatment.  We then use an insecticidal fogging treatment and insecticide smoke generators if necessary.  This should be safe after 4-6 hours.

For re-occurring problems an electronic fly killing units can be used in loft spaces to provide a way of controlling them.
