They are notorious for dispersing infections that are easily transmitted. At least 200 known human diseases and parasites are carried by these ostensibly benign insects. They float about all kinds of unclean areas, carrying their germs with them, and then they spread these dangerous germs to the food we eat. Cholera, typhoid, dysentery, and other food-borne illnesses are some of the diseases that are known to be carried by flies.

House Fly

The main feeders are house flies. They are drawn to a wide range of objects, including human food and waste. They can only consume liquids because of their spongy mouthpart. To prevent fleas and ticks from becoming a nuisance, proper prophylaxis is necessary.

Drain Fly

They are about 1/6-inch long, light grey or tan in hue, and have wings that are even lighter in colour. Long hairs that cover both their body and wings give them a fuzzy appearance. When resting, they fold their wings over the body like a roof. To solve this issue, various hornet control techniques must be used in India.

Fruit Fly

They are yellow-brown in colour and very little in size. They frequently eat decaying produce, trash, or fruit. Around dawn and dusk is when fruit flies are typically more busy.

Blow Fly

They are bigger than house flies in size. They have a metallic blue or green tint and are glossy. They are also known as “Blue-bottle” flies. They can be found in food, animal carcasses, dung, and waste.

How to Control ?

  • Regular removal of trash, animal waste, and other waste is crucial.
  • Always dispose of such objects with a plastic bag tied around them.
  • Manures must be kept dry and stored in sealed bags if they are to be used as fertilisers. Flies prefer to reproduce on manure that has been left out in the open. So always add a layer of dirt or earth atop manure.
  • To keep flies out of your house, fix fly scree to your windows.
  • To kill adult flies, spray insecticide into the air. Although it must be severely prohibited in kitchens, eateries, and F&B establishments. It is better to use fly bait made of syrup or food that has been combined with pesticides.
