Fly Biology

Flies are insects making up the order Diptera, which means “two wings”. With over 110,000 species of fly around the world and found in every part of the inhabited planet, Canada is home to five major species – blow / bottle flies, cluster flies, drain flies, fruit flies, and house flies. Most abundant in tropical and subtropical areas, flies are attracted into homes and businesses in search of food. Flies carry and spread bacteria and disease. An immediate health risk to you and your family, effective fly control and fly removal is of utmost importance to Terminix Canada.

Did You Know?

Thanks to tiny lenses called ommatidia, these compound eyes allow flies to see behind them – 360 degrees at once.

Fly Behaviour, Diet, Habitat and Life Cycle

In short, all flies carry danger. Essentially, species like house flies, fruit flies and cluster flies carry and spread bacteria and disease. Picking up pathogens from places like trash bags, they can transfer them to wherever they land. Elsewhere and according to the exact species, some diseases spread by flying insects include cholera, dysentery and typhoid.

Food preparation and disposal, along with air currents, attracts flies into homes. Flies detect the odours of food inside or from garbage containers outdoors. Some flies can breed in drains and garbage containers, and thus develop populations inside buildings. On cool days, a warm building attracts flies, while during hot days, cool air from a building may attract flies. Because flies primarily breed outdoors in manure, garbage and the carcasses of dead animals, they may carry bacteria into the home.

Wondering How To Get Rid Of Flies?

Are you wondering how to get rid of flies? Firstly, you should know that different types of flies require different methods of fly control. Each fly type has its own habits and preferred living conditions. Fruit flies prefer ripened/rotting fruit or fresh garbage, while moth flies prefer drains. House flies primarily breed in fresh manure, while blow flies prefer dead animals or rotting garbage. Positive identification is often a key to discovering active breeding sites.

Efficient residential and commercial fly control and fly removal is of great importance to us because flies jeopardize your health and safety by carrying toxins and diseases. When it comes to residential fly control or commercial fly control, the best way to get rid of bed bugs is to hire a Terminix Canada exterminators

    Wow, did we have a raccoon problem! Unbeknownst to us a raccoon family was living in our attic. We knew that it was some form of wildlife that was creating the crazy … read more noises that was preventing us from sleeping but had no idea that the culprits were relentless raccoons. Thanks to Adam’s experience in the field and his persistent actions, the raccoon family exited the house. It was not an easy process and took many logical and creative tries. Adam is a skilled problem solver with a wide range of skills in the construction field that make him particularly adept at this type of job. With the assistance of Marshal, he got rid of the raccoons. Both Adam and Marshal are to be commended for being both persistent and positive during this challenging time for our family. The raccoon noises were disrupting our entire household and we were exhausted. A huge thank you to Terminix and particularly to Adam and Marshal for helping us enjoy our home again. I would highly recommend the work done by Adam and Marshal. Terminix is fortunate to employ such skilled professionals.

I had Jessica for my previous … read more services and was impressed by how professional and detailed she is. When Eddy showed up today I was very pleased with how professional and very detailed he was as well.
