Flies are insects that belong to the order Diptera and are characterized by having only one pair of wings. Flies play an important ecological role in nature as pollinators and providing food sources for other animals. However, fly control is warranted when flies infest in and around properties.
A fly infestation can be harmful to humans in a number of ways, including:
- Flies can transmit many different diseases to people, including diseases associated with food poisoning like Salmonella or E. coli. Other diseases that flies are known to spread include typhoid fever, cholera, dysentery and rotavirus.
- A fly infestation can result in financial losses for businesses by contaminating food products. The presence of flies can give customers the impression that a commercial property is unsanitary.
- Some fly species will bite humans which will result in itchy bumps.
If a small fly problem is left uncontrolled, it has the potential to turn into a serious infestation. Some fly species are able to mature from eggs to adults in just seven days.
