House Flies are annoying! When you find yourself buying multiple fly swatters, you have a problem!
Size: 1/16 to 1/4 of an inch long
Color: Dull gray with four dark stripes on the back of the thorax (segments right behind the head with legs and wings attached).
Activity/Behavior: A female may lay more than 500 eggs in a lifetime. Fly eggs can develop into adults in just over 7 days.
Where They Live: The adult flies may migrate to un-infested areas up to 20 miles away, but most stay within one or two miles of the breeding site.
Tips for Control: Cleaning up a trash problem usually gets rid of flies.
How Suburban Exterminating Can Help: Control of house flies takes persistence and experience. Flies are resilient creatures which feed on human food, so it’s difficult to keep them away. An infestation sometimes can be controlled using over-the-counter products. A trained pest control professional can help you get rid of your fly problem.
