Houston Fly Control

Houston Fly ControlHouston has lots of flies. Four million people produce a lot of garbage every day, and garbage is food for flies. Every dumpster, every trash can, every Whataburger wrapper left in the street is food for flies.

A fly's body is an amazing carrier for bacteria, with hundreds of thousands of microscopic organisms swarming among the tiny hairs that cover the bodies of these pests. These hairs brush up against whatever the fly lands on, picking up bacteria in one place and transmitting it to another.

We're never going to get all the flies out of the city, but we can help keep flies to of your home.

Getting Rid of Flies

Flies will enter homes in search of food. This means that you have to be a careful with pest control treatments for flies, since treatments will need to be applied near food storage and preparation areas.

Keeping kitchens clean and garbage cans emptied can help reduce the chances of flies entering your home. Flypaper can be effective at catching flies, but having a strip of dead flies handing from your ceiling can be just as unpleasant. For serious fly infestations, give Bulls Eye Pest and Termite Control a call. We can safely and effectively treat for flies in your home.

Types of Flies in Houston

There are over 16,000 species of flies in North America, but all the different species of pest flies in Houston can be broken down into two broad types.

  • House Flies are flies from a number of species of larger flies that commonly come into people's homes. Prevention can do a lot to keep house flies out of your home. Flies are attracted to, and will lay their eggs near, spoiled and rotting organic material. Making sure that your counters are clean, your garbage cans are sealed, and that any spoiled food is taken out of your home immediately can help reduce the number of flies getting into your home. If you have cats, keep your litter boxes clean.
  • Fruit Flies are generally smaller than house flies and, as their name implies, they feed and lay their eggs on fruit. For this, they prefer spoiled and rotting fruit. Making sure that any fruit in your home is fresh and that any spoiled or rotting fruit is removed immediately can help keep these pests down.
