Fly Control the Hearts Pest Management Way

Flies can be a problem year round. They are serious spreaders of disease and a huge nuisance to people. The largest problem with fly control is that they don’t crawl around your house like many other bugs do. This makes the use of standard pest control chemicals and devices less effective. Hearts Pest Management has effective pest control treatments for flies using both standard and un-conventional methods. Your Hearts Consulting Pest Technician can advise you in how to reduce flies and make your home less attractive to flies before we even begin service. Prevention is the best defense against flies. Your Hearts Consulting Pest Technician will inspect every aspect of your property to insure complete coverage and treatment. If you need low or no toxicity fly solutions, Hearts has them. Hearts is the first and only company that is EcoWise Certified south of the San Francisco Bay area. And we are proud carriers of Eco Smart Products. All of our Consulting Technicians are also certified in Landscape Pest Control, so the plants, lawn and trees you have invested in will be in the same great shape when we’ve finished your service.

Flies and Your Health

Flies spread disease and cause food poisoning. They are known to cause Salmonella, Typhoid, Shigella, and Escherichia coli. They may seem only annoying, but flies can cause major problems for children, pets and adults. Most flies breed successfully because of their dependence on us. People inadvertently allow flies to breed rapidly by leaving food and shelter for them to use. Having a sound, pest free environment is a necessary part of the state of your health. Your Hearts Consulting Pest Technician can help you achieve a high level of protection from environmental risk.

Flies – A Word to Food Handlers and Restaurant

Owners don’t have accept flies as part of the food and restaurant business. Food poisoning and bacteria can be prevented. Good service habits, like persistent hand washing and temperature control only cover part of the picture. If you are in need of a device to reduce flies or other flying organisms, you can count on your Hearts Consulting Pest Technician to make sure, not only that it is working with each visit, but to reassess its effectiveness from time to time. Also, re-evaluating your sanitation program and ensuring your reputation is an automatic component of our commercial accounts. Hearts can help you coordinate with your staff and vwnders to find the holes in your safety net. We’ll work with you to help you achieve a seamless fly control program.

Fly Prevention – Help take a Bite out of Flies

Flies may be more or less difficult to control, depending on the species and location in question. In general, the more food and shelter there is, the more flies you will get. Flies eat almost anything. But they need specific areas in which to breed and lay eggs . Make sure your trash is in bags and tied up tight. Rinse all the contents of recyclables before letting them sit outside for long periods of time. Some flies have a maturity cycle of 7 days or less. If the recycle container gets picked up once every two weeks, you may be allowing the flies to breed faster than the material they breed on is removed.All refuse and clutter should be removed from within the home and outside of it. If you have fruit trees, keep after the produce that falls on the ground. If your pets are trained to put their waist outside, you need to make sure the waist is quickly removed and wrapped up in an air tight bag and placed in the garbage container. Their feces is a big helper for flies and part of the reason so many diseases are associated with flies.

Fly Species in Southern California

Close up of fruit fly Fruit Flies bring bacteria from feces and rotting fruit to whatever they land on. They breed in fresh and rotting fruit and they are very small, small enough to defeat many attempts to physically prevent them. They cost us all in the produce they contaminate. They may actually lay eggs on fresh fruit that may be eaten as larva. They are fast breeders, completing their entire life cycle in as little as 8 days. They are typically no bigger than 1/8 inch long with red eyes. For more information on fruit flies and different species, visit our page: Pest Control for Fruit Flies house fly House Flies are exactly what they sound like. Living almost exclusively in homes, they depend on us for their survival. They too have will eat just about anything and have a very fast breeding cycle. Scientists estimate that a single pare of House Flies, if left alone to breed and if all their offspring could live, could produce over 190 Quintillion (190 x 1018th) flies. Fortunately, most of their offspring will succumb to predators and other circumstances. The larger flies may grow to be around 1/4th an inch with four black stripes on its back while the Little House Fly will usually be around half that length and without the stripes. Then there are tiny gnats that belong to a group of “nuisance flies” often called No-see-ums. These are biting gnats common in grassy areas and beaches where there is standing water.Crane Flies crane fly Crane Flies are one of the most misidentified insects around. Crane Fliesare the giant mosquitoes that sometimes, accidentally make their way into your home. Many people get very upset when one of these insects comes near them. But the adult Crane Fly does not eat at all, let alone attack or siphon blood like a mosquito. They are part of a group of flies that only feed in the larval stage. Additionally they live, mate and develop outside. They are active at night and are often attracted to the lights around or on a house, which is when they may accidentally get in. When one gets into your house, you may typically see it hovering around the window, trying to get out. Letting it out is the best way to deal with it. They need moisture in which to breed. The reduction of moisture around your home and property is the best way to deal with Crane Flies. green garbage fly Garbage Flies typically will only be found in and around garbage containers. They consume and breed in decaying organic material of almost any kind. They are medium sizes flies that are metallic green or blue with a copper hue. Their maggots can be seen in the bottoms of the trash containers and open plastic containers that they frequent. They are one of the best spreaders of disease. Hanging fly traps won’t usually work on them because they don’t land on vertical surfaces. The primary method of control of these flies is sealing them out and sanitation measures.Black Flies black fly Black Flies typically live near streams and other moving bodies of water. The females can deliver a painful bite. They are difficult to control because they usually breed away from the area in which they are a nuisance. There are more than 1200 species of black flies; their color can range from grey to black to brown to dark yellow. They are small (1/4 inch) and hump-backed in shape.Stable Flies stablefly fly Stable Flies are similar in size to house flies. They do not have the four black stripes on their back. Both male and female will bite. Their breeding area is usually decaying vegetable matter and a reduction of this outside the home will reduce Stable Flies.Flesh Flies thumb size of flesh fly Flesh Flies are noted for eating decaying matter but they will eat just about anything else. Flesh flies are medium to large in size with red eyes and three dark stripes on their back. They are different than other fly species in that they do not lay eggs. The eggs hatch inside the female’s body and the larvae are then deposited on the food source.
