Flies

Fly Pest Control

Flies are known to be one of the most annoying pests to have in your home, with about 30000 different species known to inhabit Australia.

This is a huge number to contend with, however a lot of these insects are oblivious to humans as they spend their time occupying themselves with other activities.

The fly belongs to a group of insects called Diptera, which classifies them as having two wings attached to their thorax.  The most common flies to be found in suburban areas of the VIC are the housefly, fruit fly, bush fly and the blowfly.

The life cycle of these flies usually starts off with the female fly feeding off organic matter such as fruits and decomposing material, depositing their eggs on this matter, with the expectation that these eggs would hatch within a day or two.

The fly chooses organic matter to lay their eggs, as it is the most conducive to the development of their eggs, as the larvae that hatches can immediately feed off its nutrient rich decomposing environment.

Problems associated with flies

Flies are generally not seen as dangerous pest, however their path of physical development sees them feeding off dung, garbage, or decaying matter before finding their way to our food source.  The common housefly is the common carrier of pathogenic causing disease such as cholera, typhoid and anthrax. They vomit and walk on surfaces where we prepare our food depositing these pathogens along the way.

Although we tend to see flies as pest, they do help in the maintenance of our ecosystem by playing their part in the pollination of many plants. The pollen from these plants are rich in protein, which helps in the development of the fly, especially in its season of reproduction.
