How Do I Get Rid of Tiny Flies?

Many Long Islanders have called our office asking “How do I get rid of tiny flies?”  In both homes and businesses, flies spread disease and germs. Flies are generally a sign of garbage and other revolting stuff!

Fly control differs depending on the type of fly. So when a customer asks “How do I get rid of flies?”, we always need to know the kind of fly.
