Boca Raton Fly Control

flies over rotten food

North America is home to an excess of 16,000 fly species. The life span of these can vary from 7 days to 2 months, depending on what type of fly you have in your properties.

Flies, not actively biting, they can carry bacteria that can be passed on our foods or furniture. They land on different things like in the dumpster, animal dung, and rotten food.

From there, they may land on clean, sanitize areas or food and unknowingly spread the virus. That is why it is best to keep your surroundings clean and store away food in a sealed container.

How do I get flies?

Flies are common in every environment. But having too much will make you wonder where these came from.

  1. Rotting materials. Admit that only a quarter of the population in the city checks the expiration date of some equipment, even food packs. So you might not be aware of the time you need to let go of these objects. It is best to keep a weekly check or monthly check on materials that could possibly rot or decay.
  2. Animal feces. Have a furry friend at home? It is normal to have their dung in the yard or even inside the house. What’s not normal is when you don’t remove it. This can attract a population of flies and can lead to an infestation.
  3. Manure. Gardeners use different kinds of fertilizer especially the natural ones because this adds value and nutrients to the plants or vegetation crops. But did you know that this can also attract flies? It is OK to use this but make sure that you balance everything so that you can lessen the flies that may invade your homes.
  4. Grass clippings or leaves. In relation to number 3, it is best to throw away decaying leaves and grass and not pile them up. Flies can also make a nest here and infiltrate your property.
  5. Dirty dishes. We have all been washing dishes since we were in grade school. But we also let our laziness consume us to the point that we don’t wash these immediately. As much as we want to lay on our beds, we have to wash it every after meal so that we can’t attract this pest.
  6. Bright lights at night. Do you experience flies during nighttime? Some of them are attracted to this so be sure to turn it off when not in use. Saves electricity too!
  7. Carcasses. While we want to avoid as much as a pest as possible from entering our homes, we should limit the use of poisonous substances like rat poison. This is not only expensive (and can do only minimal prevention) but can also lead to dead bodies of pests. Flies are attracted to these that is why if we will use this, let us be responsible to throw it immediately.
  8. Exposed food. Make sure before going to bed or after you eat, store your leftover food. If you don’t, the next thing you’ll deal with is health problems or illnesses.

What are the illnesses I can get from flies?

  • Food poisoning
  • cholera
  • E. coli
  • typhoid fever
  • dysentery
  • tuberculosis
  • eye infections
  • Yaws

If ever you have symptoms leading to these after eating your food, make sure to contact the nearest hospital. Also, before putting anything in your mouth, check the food for white to yellow spiky soft substance. These are their fly eggs. Be sure to scoop the part that was laid on or throw it out. It is better to be safe than sorry.
