Flies are probably the most annoying pest that you come into contact with the inside of your home in the summer. They can be a relentless pest, buzzing around your dinner table, your fruit bowl or your head while you are enjoying some television on the couch. Flies may seem harmless other than the fact that they are extremely annoying, but you may think to yourself that they do not pose any serious threats to you or your family. This is where you are wrong; flies are responsible for spreading over 200 known pathogens and parasites to humans. So if you are noticing an increase in fly population within your home, it is time to call in a professional from A-Tex Pest Management to remove flies from your home.
House Fly Borne Diseases
Flies pick up dangerous pathogens from many different areas and this makes their presence in your home very dangerous. Flies will gravitate towards trash cans, decaying flesh, rotting food and feces. Imagine that the flies in your home are carrying any pathogens they picked up from these areas and are now landing on your pork chops at dinner time. A swift brush at the fly will cause it to fly away, but it is possible that your pork chops are no longer very safe to consume. Flies are known to spread diseases like typhoid, cholera and dysentery. Whether the flies in our home come into contact with surfaces that we touch or the food that we eat, we are at risk of contracting these dangerous diseases. The best way to keep flies out of your home for good is to contact A-Tex Pest Management for complete and professional fly control.
Swarms of Flies Have the Ability to Multiply Quickly
One or two flies buzzing around your home may not seem like a big deal at all, but if flies are not removed from your home quickly, you will soon notice a large population of flies in no time. When flies begin to breed, more and more flies will appear making what seemed to be a very small problem into a very large and disgusting issue. Fly infestations can be extremely difficult to remove on your own, calling in a professional from A-Tex Pest Management is your best option for eliminating fly infestations within your home.
How to Keep Flies Away Indoors and Outside
There are a handful of steps you can take that will limit the number of flies that get into your home or continue to linger around its exterior. Take the time to inspect the screens around your home. Your screens should be free from punctures and should fit securely to keep out flies. If your main living area does not include a ceiling fan, consider installing one. Flies find it extremely difficult to buzz around your home if there is a breeze. Be sure to remove all items inside of your home that would attract flies, this includes garbage that should be taken out to the street, rotting food and dirty drains. Remember that leftover food should be tightly stored away and never left out for long periods of time after dinner.
