Fly Identification & Prevention

Fly Control In Syracuse

Flies can be a serious bummer at the family barbecue, but they can cause a lot more problems than just some ruined egg salad when they invade your Syracuse home. This is because flies aren't just buzzing irritants. They are disgusting vectors of all sorts of dangerous illnesses, and this means pest control in Syracuse should be a high priority, especially in the warmer months when they are buzzing about to breed.

We have many different types of flies that can invade your home here in Syracuse. Some are little more than a nuisance, while others can be a serious threat to your health. What's even worse is that eliminating fly infestations can be a lot more complicated than just laying out some sticky traps, especially if you have maggots hatching in your house.

Are flies dangerous?

Whether a fly is dangerous depends on the type of fly it is. Fruit flies, for example, are really more of a nuisance than a threat. Houseflies, however, spread a myriad of diseases because these filthy flies defecate and regurgitate all over everything they land on – that's right, everything. This means everything they touch in your house, including food and food preparation surfaces, becomes contaminated.

Why do I have a fly problem?

You can wind up with a fly infestation in one of several ways. Often, you get flies because you have something in your home that is attracting them, such as uncovered garbage or improperly stored food. You may also wind up with flies because you have contaminated potted plants that contain eggs from certain species. Oftentimes, though, it's simply bad luck. You open the door, a fly comes in, lays eggs in your pantry, and next thing you know, you've got a problem.

How do I get rid of flies?

It is not an easy task to get rid of flies once you have them. There are not a lot of effective fly treatment products on the open market. Most of the time, laying out a few sticky traps is the best you can do on your own. That's where we come in.

At Gannon Pest Control, we have much more effective tools and techniques for eliminating fly infestations than you can get on your own. We also have trained specialists that can perform inspections to see where flies are breeding in your home. That's why you should depend on us for all your home pest control and commercial pest control needs.

How can I prevent flies in the future?

Following a few fly prevention tips can help you reduce your likelihood of ever having to deal with an infestation at all. Just take measures like keeping your garbage tightly covered, storing your pantry foods in airtight containers, and making sure all your window and door screens fit tightly and are free of rips and tears. Measures like these can go a long way towards keeping flies out of your house and out of your life, but if they find a way in, don't hesitate to contact us here at Gannon Pest Control.
