Why are there so many flies in my house all of a sudden? “
“On Monday, there were no flies in this house. Zero. None.” Frank said. “Now it is Sunday afternoon and I can not even watch my football game because there are so many flies in this house. Dozens. Maybe even hundreds – I don’t know. It’s disgusting and I want to know where they all came from!”
House flies can be an indication that there’s a sanitation issue in the home. People get very upset by this news, but having a sanitation issue doesn’t mean your home is messy or unclean. Something as simple as a leaky trash bag or an unnoticed spilled beverage can be more than enough to support two to twenty adult flies – in other words, a viable breeding population.
And house flies breed quickly. A handful of flies can produce hundreds of offspring in a matter of days. A small sanitation issue can quickly develop into a big housefly infestation.
House flies will also show up in your place suddenly if temperatures drop outdoors – they come in seeking warmth – and if there’s pet waste in or near the house.
What Can Be Done About A House Fly Infestation?
While the internet has many home remedies to get flies out of the house, the fact is the fastest, most effective solution is a combination of home sanitation and professional insect control services. Identifying and eliminating the material the flies are eating and using as a breeding ground is a critical first step. Your local pest control professionals then use the appropriate pet, planet, and family friendly products to completely remove adult and juvenile flies from your home.
Property managers and people who have rental properties often need professional insect removal services after tenants vacate a property and leave it in an unclean state.
