Vancouver fruit flies have proved so annoying in the city that Vancouver Sun released their own article on how to get rid of these summer pests back in July 2019.
Common Vancouver Flies
Blow / Bottle Flies
Size: 6 to 16 mm long.
Colour: Shiny, metallic blue, green or copper, depending on the species.
Behaviour: Blow flies and bottle flies are important scavengers in nature as they are one of the first insects to reach a dead animal. These flies are part of the decomposition process that recycles nutrients back into the soil. The maggots of these flies may be used by forensic entomologists to place the time of death in murder cases. They also breed in garbage containers, dumpsters and decaying vegetative matter like compost piles.
Size: 8 to 10 mm long.
Colour: Dark grey with golden hairs and overlapping wings.
Behaviour: Cluster flies are parasites of earthworms. In the late spring/early summer, cluster flies lay their eggs in soil cracks, and the maggots enter their earthworm hosts. The complete life cycle from egg to adult cluster fly is about 27 to 39 days. Starting in mid-August, adult cluster flies seek out protected locations—preferably sunny, light-coloured buildings. Cluster flies enter a home one at a time, but collect throughout the house in swarms, much like a swarm of bees. They enter homes through small openings such as cracks around your windows or walls and tend to hibernate until warmed by the home’s environment.
Size: 1.5 to 5 mm long.
Colour: Adult drain flies have a dark grey body and lighter-coloured wings. Fine hairs on their bodies and wings give drain flies a fuzzy, moth-like appearance. Hence why they’re often called moth flies.
Behaviour: Drain flies are most active at night. They are weak flyers that make short hopping flights of a few feet when they are disturbed. Drain flies rest on surfaces with their wings held over their back like a roof. You’ll usually find a drain fly close to its breeding ground.
Size: 2.5 to 4 mm long.
Colour: Varying shades of yellow, brown-yellow or brown-black.
Behaviour: Fruit flies can be seen year-round, usually in the kitchen. There they can be found around areas where decaying or overripe fruits or vegetables are found. They are attracted by bananas, tomatoes, onions and other produce. They are also attracted to other foods that are left unrefrigerated and to food containers that have not been rinsed where there may be residue traces or strong residue aromas.
Size: 4 to 7.5 mm long.
Colour: Light grey bodies and dark stripes running the length of the thorax.
Behaviour: A house fly can live anywhere from two-and-a-half weeks in hot climates to three months in cooler areas. House flies are notorious for spreading disease. It’s been shown that each fly is capable of carrying more than a million bacteria. House flies can spread diarrhoea, typhoid fever and cholera. House flies spread bacteria that contaminate your food and the surfaces where you prepare your food just by landing on them. After a house fly lands on your food, it regurgitates its stomach contents onto the food to liquefy it before ingesting your food.
