Order Diptera


Many types of flies exist in our area. These include house flies, blow flies, cluster flies, drain flies, and more.

Common Misconception

It’s a popular rumor that the common house fly lives for only 24 hours. Many people grew up believing this to be true.  However, the common housefly adult will typically live for two to three weeks!

Short Term Solution

Clean your home thoroughly. Flies feed off dirty areas. The cleaner your surroundings, the less likely flies will live there. Check for open windows and torn screens. Make sure flies don’t have a way inside. Finally, capture one of the flies to identify them. This will help us all diagnose the source of the problem.
