Important Considerations:

  • House flies breed and live in filth. Because of this, they carry many diseases that can be harmful to humans such as food poisoning, dysentery, and tuberculosis.
  • Flies are one of the most common pests in the world
  • These bugs feast on feces and garbage — two things common in places where humans dwell. This often means that flies follow humans and animals when selecting where to live and lay eggs.


Where to Find Them on Your Property?

House flies are extremely mobile and can often be seen buzzing about your home or property. This is the first sign of an infestation. They will live and breed in garbage heaps, trash cans, compost piles, and manure.
