How to Keep Flies Away

Fly Eating Food

Flies can be a nuisance pest for homes and businesses. A fly infestation could pose a serious health risk as flies are known to spread a range of diseases, like Salmonella and E.coli. If you want to deter flies, there are some practical steps you can take. Some of these methods are totally cost-free and only require your time to action. Recommended steps involve making changes indoors and outdoors to cover all potential hot spots and ensure effective fly control.

Minimising Fly Infestation Tips

  • Deny flies access - keep windows and doors closed.
  • Flyscreens - fit flyscreens to windows especially around kitchen and waste areas.
  • Cover food - flies spread diseases by landing on food before we eat it.
  • Clear away - clear food debris and liquid spillages from food consumption and preparation areas, under kitchen benches and appliances.
  • Dustbins / Compost bins - ensure all waste containers have tightly sealed lids.
  • Floormats - ensure that build-up of grease is thoroughly cleaned every month.
  • Pets - clean up after pets. Not only are faeces a perfect breeding place for flies, they may land there before landing on your food.
  • Clear up dead flies - they provide a tasty snack for other pests such as carpet beetles.
  • Drains - ensure drains are kept clean and free of debris to reduce fly breeding sites.
  • FACT - Common house flies are attracted to decaying organic waste such as faeces and rotting meat, whereas fruit flies will look for sugary substances and feed more commonly on overripe fruit, spilled soft drinks and alcohol.

What do flies attracted to in a premise?

Flies are attracted to smell, particularly odour coming from food waste and scrapes such as bins, wash sinks, drains, sewers and floor trap. As they are sensitive to light, they are particularly drawn to premises with lighting as well. They feed on sweet and fermenting fruits and use their saliva to break down food into liquid form for ingestion. Poor housekeeping and sanitation condition is another reason that triggers flies problem.
