It’s come to that time of year again when we are receiving a number of calls from people to report they are experiencing a lot of flies in their house.
The first thing to say is, do not worry you probably do not have something dead in your house. These flies are more than likely cluster flies, they will be seen outdoors in summer very often sunbathing on a south facing wall. During Autumn they will fly inside buildings and will congregate around windows and light fittings, before finding an area to hibernate over winter, usually in a loft or roof void.
Treatment will normally consist of applying an insecticide, which can be applied by a fogging machine.
For advice on what can be done and for identification of which fly species is causing the activity, call our main office phone number to arrange for a free survey.
