Flies can transmit intestinal worms, and their eggs. Diseases such as gastroenteritis, typhoid, dysentery, cholera and tuberculosis are associated with these insects.
A fly will liquefy food by regurgitating their stomach contents and juices on to the food substance.
The common housefly has a flight range of at least 5 miles /8 kilometres, whereas the Lesser housefly makes longer flights, and only the males of the species migrate.
In warm environments houseflies will reproduce throughout the year. The adult fly will live for 1-3 months, and can produce up to 5 batches of 100-150 eggs.
The full cycle of the larval development is generally completed between 1- 4 weeks, depending on the temperature.
Larvae need to migrate from breeding sites to lesser temperatures in order to pupate.
Call SCPC, who will send a technician to identify possible breeding areas, provide a solution to the fly problem with treatments, and recommend fly screens /fly control units.
SCPC uses the Exodus ULV Machine – it passes the treatment liquid through a specially designed unit, which generates an airborne mist of fine droplets. These droplets permeate the treated area and settle out onto surfaces.
