Flies in the home are a common occurrence throughout the year. Not only are flies annoying, an infestation can quickly get out of control if a female lays her eggs in your home. Although proper management is necessary to control flies, many homeowners are reluctant to use chemical pesticides, especially indoors. Fortunately, the Safer® Brand family of products includes many options for indoor fly control that contain no synthetic or man-made chemicals. Take control of flies in your home today with our gardening fly control products that are deemed compliant for use in organic production!
Throughout the world, flies carry a number of serious diseases, including E. coli, typhoid, cholera, salmonella and parasitic worms. Flies are covered in small hairs that easily transmit pathogens from one source to another, usually within seconds. And while, at least in the United States, the likelihood of contacting a serious disease from a fly is slim, countless people get sick each year from accidentally ingesting food contaminated by fly larvae.
Environmental Management for Common Flies in the Home
House flies and fruit flies are two of the most common pests in the home. With a little diligence, both can be effectively managed without the use of pesticide fly control products. Start by eliminating potential sources of food: take out your garbage regularly, keep your kitchen counters free of crumbs and other waste, and dispose of rotting food properly. You can also install mesh screens on your doors and windows to keep flies out.
