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 you need a proven house fly or fruit fly killer, choose Terminix Canada.
