Flies are as part of our culture in Australia as thongs and corked hats. However, they are a pest in every sense of the word. They pose a health risk to humans, pets and livestock and can infest your business and spread diseases like Salmonella and E. coli. A few species may even bite humans and animals.
Noticing a few noisy flies in your house or your business may not mean you have an infestation. However, it should act as a warning sign to take some preventative action. If a small fly problem is left uncontrolled, it has the potential to turn into a serious infestation. Some fly species are able to mature from eggs to adults in just seven days.
Some species are more common than others and are attracted to different environments suited to their natural habits and lifecycle. Common house flies are attracted to decaying organic waste such as faeces and rotting meat, whereas fruit flies will look for sugary substances and feed more commonly on overripe fruit, spilled soft drinks and alcohol.
