Effective Fly Exterminator Services

Flies are more than a nuisance; they’re a health hazard. Mosquito Joe’s fly pest control service identifies where flies feed, hide, rest, and breed on your property. We target each phase of the fly life cycle to keep them from coming back and get you the relief you need. Once our fly exterminator service gets rid of the adults, pupae, larvae, and eggs on your property, we form a barrier around your home to prevent the flies from buzzing back.

Health Risks Associated With Flies

Flies’ personal habits are so over-the-top icky that we’re not even supposed to discuss it here. Trust us — it’s a total buzzkill. What we can tell you is that flies directly spread at least 65 diseases to humans, including dysentery, typhoid fever, cholera, anthrax, and leprosy. And all flies — not just those riddled with diseases — carry bacteria, parasites, and other nastiness with them wherever they go. Yuck!

Outdoor fly control doesn’t just make backyard barbecues more enjoyable. It also helps protect your family from the germs and pathogens they spread. We ensure these airborne troublemakers get grounded for good.

Signs of a Fly Infestation

Do you really need professional outdoor fly control? Maybe not. After all, a few flies aren’t an infestation. But flies reproduce fast, and all too soon, a few flies can become hundreds. So, let’s see how you can tell if you have a fly infestation.

  • Frequent Fly Sightings: While occasionally seeing a few flies in or around your house isn’t a problem, consistently having crowds of flies is.
  • Tiny Black Flecks: Euphemistically called “flyspeck,” fly droppings are tiny black specks. If found on your counters, sills, or food, they’re a sign of too many flies.
  • Maggots in the Trash: Small, whitish mounds of squirmy worm-like things in the trash, in the litter box, or on rotting food are maggots — fly hatchlings.

If you have any of these signs of a fly infestation, call your Mosquito Joe for fly control.

Frequently Asked Questions about Fly Extermination

Are fly traps effective for outdoor fly control?

Fly traps effectively help to control flies. Food bait traps and those using UV light as a lure attract flies, then trap or zap them. Set the traps near fly activity for best results.

What are some environmentally friendly ways to control flies in outdoor areas?

There are several environmentally friendly ways to cut down on the hordes of flies in your yard:

  • Keep it clean: Clean up all fallen fruit and veggies, spilled bird seed, pet food, and pet poop, and secure trash in clean, airtight bins.
  • Bring in bugs: Parasitic wasps are beneficial bugs that kill flies without bothering people or pets. Their eggs develop inside fly pupae to eat them before they hatch.
  • Homemade fly-begone spray: Mix four cups of apple cider vinegar with 20 drops each of rosemary, basil, and peppermint essential oil. Add a squirt of dish soap and two of vegetable oil. Shake and spray.
  • Hire eco-friendly pros: Hire a professional pest control company that offers natural fly control treatments.

How do you keep flies away permanently?

Flies are extraordinarily well-adapted to survival. They feed on waste and can travel up to 20 miles. The only way to permanently get rid of flies in and around your home is to stop attracting them. Tightly seal all garbage cans, pick up after pets, and keep food covered or put away. Deny flies the food, water, shelter, and breeding grounds they seek, and they’ll fly elsewhere.

How to stop flies from coming into my house?

Like any pests, flies come indoors seeking food, water, shelter, and breeding sites. To keep them out, do the following:

  • Secure your trash: Flies see your garbage as their gourmet meal. Use a trash can liner to keep the waste can clean, and seal it tightly.
  • Examine and repair your screens: Repair your weather stripping too. A tiny hole set out a welcome mat for flies.
  • Store food carefully: Seal food away in airtight storage. While they like garbage, they’re happy to dine on your food.
  • Repair leaky faucets: Flies are drawn to wet sites, leaky faucets, and dishwater. Rinse dishes promptly and put them in the dishwasher.
  • Clean up after pets: Flies love the litter box and dog doo as places to lay their eggs. Maggots make a feast of your pets’ droppings. (Eww!)
  • Maintain good housekeeping: Promptly wipe up spills and crumbs and dispose of old food properly.

How can I reduce the number of flies around my patio and backyard areas?

Flies hang out in places where they can meet their needs for food, water, and breeding sites. Remove all sources of decaying organic matter — flies’ favorite food — from your backyard. Pick up and discard pulled weeds, spilled birdseed, fallen fruit and veggies, pet food, and pet droppings. Keep trash bins clean and closed airtight. Fix any leaky faucets. Use fly traps or fly paper. Consider hosting some top fly predators like birds, bats, frogs, and parasitic wasps to feast on any flies that don’t skedaddle.
