Flies Control Service in Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C.

Flies are a challenging pest to deal with. They are constantly searching for accessible food sources and breed quickly. Flies are scavengers, which means they feed on fermenting food, sugary foods, and decaying matter.

Since they quickly fly from one place to another, they are also one of the top spreaders of diseases such as salmonella, E. coli, typhoid, and cholera. Because of this, it is crucial to eliminate flies and take preventative measures to keep your family or customers safe. That is where My Pest Pros comes in.

How to Identify a Fly Infestation

Even if you take necessary precautions, flies are very fast and can quickly fly through a crack in your door or window. To properly treat your fly problem, it is essential that we correctly identify the type of fly you are dealing with. People in Northern Virginia, D.C. Metro, and Maryland deal with four main types of flies—house flies, fruit flies, cluster flies, and phorid flies.

House Flies

They are most commonly found in homes and restaurants that do not meet sanitation codes. They have a larger dark grey/black body and are typically about quarter of an inch.

Fruit Flies

These flies are significantly smaller than house flies and tend to be about an eighth of an inch. Their bodies are light tan and usually found around decaying organic material, such as fruits and vegetables.

Cluster Flies

These flies are similar in size to house flies; however, they move much slower than house flies. These flies typically appear in warm weather and stay hidden in cold weather.

Phorid Flies

These flies are similar in size to fruit flies but are attracted to wet and unsanitary areas. Phorid flies are usually the most common flies found in restaurants.

Tips for Preventing Flies

  • Take proper sanitary measures.
  • Store dry/sugary foods in airtight containers.
  • Clean dirty dishes as soon as possible.
  • Store trash in receptacles with tight-fitting lids.
  • Eliminate small gaps at entry points.
  • Use fly traps and fly repellents.
