Getting Rid of Flies

During a fly’s lifetime (around 30 days), a female will lay between 400-600 eggs.
Based on this fact, it is easy to see how a small problem can quickly turn into a large infestation if you do nothing to control flies.

Once a problem has been identified, there are simple ways you can get rid of flies and reduce their numbers on your property.

Top tips for flies:

    • Control moisture - fix leaky taps and blocked drains where water can gather. Flies need moisture to multiply.
    • Keep food covered - any type of food, even crumbs, can attract flies and encourage them to lay eggs nearby. Leftovers should be carefully covered up. Their contact with your food is also main cause of food contamination.
    • Stay hygienic - keep your bins, sinks and food areas clean.
    • Cover entry points - fit fly screens to windows, keep windows and doors shut at night and consider installing a fly killer unit.
    • Bird feeders - keep bird feeders clean and remove bird food before dusk.
    • Remove clutter - eliminate clutter inside the house and in the garden. Messy sites could be a potential breeding site.
