If you’ve been hearing buzzing in your home, followed by a large “THUD” and a nasty fly trying to get out of your home through your window, we’ve got some tips for you on how to get rid of house flies.
House flies can’t bite you, but they can spread as many as 65 diseases to humans, some of which can be dangerous. They land on and feed on garbage, sewage waste, and animal feces. When they land on food to feed (including your own food), they defecate, spreading bacteria and diseases with ease. YUCK!
Typically, when you find house flies inside, it’s because they made it through cracks around windows, doors and vents. They’re especially likely to enter your home if you have a trash can near your home or if you don’t pick up pet feces right away.
Did you know: one pair of flies can produce more than 1 million offspring through their offsprings’ offspring in just a few weeks!
Don’t let house flies get you down! They can certainly feel like a nuisance during the summer when you swear you’ve already gotten rid of three and you find three more buzzing around your window. But follow these steps and create these clean habits, and you’ll find yourself fly-free soon. If you need any more help or tips for your home, give us a call!
