Common signs of Flies
Flies are common household pests that can be both annoying and potentially harmful, as they can carry and transmit diseases. Common signs of flies in your home or property include:
- Visible Flies: The most obvious sign is the presence of adult flies, such as houseflies, fruit flies, or drain flies, flying around your home. These flies are typically attracted to food, rubbish, or decaying organic matter.
- Fly Larvae or Maggots: If you find small, worm-like creatures (maggots) in or near decaying organic matter like rubbish, food, or compost, it’s a clear sign of a fly infestation.
- Clustered Around Food Sources: Flies are often seen hovering around food, especially if it’s left uncovered or has decayed. They are attracted to the odours of rotting or fermenting substances.
- Breeding Sites: Flies lay their eggs in moist, decaying organic matter.
- Buzzing or Noise: The buzzing sound of flies is often heard when they are in close proximity.
- Dark Spots or Stains: Flies may leave behind small, dark faecal spots on surfaces where they have landed or rested.
- Swarms: Certain fly species, such as cluster flies, may gather in large numbers on windows, walls, or ceilings during specific times of the year.
