Confronting Flies In The House: Understanding The Risks
Do flies bite? Some species of flies do bite humans and pets, but most of the risks of having flies in your home relate to their ability to spread disease and contaminate food.
House flies crawl in garbage and other unsanitary conditions before landing on your kitchen counter or on food. This can transfer and spread harmful bacteria to areas where you prepare food or to food that you will eat, potentially making you sick with things like diarrhea or food poisoning. Even tiny fruit flies could contaminate the fruit that you have on your kitchen counter.
Some types of flies, like drain flies, don’t pose much of a danger to human health. However, having multiple flies in your home and kitchen can make it appear as though you have unsanitary conditions. No one wants to see flies buzzing around areas where food is being prepared, because most people don’t know which types of flies are more likely to spread bacteria.
Proactive Fly Prevention: Implementing Measures To Keep Flies Out
You may be wondering what attracts flies. Understanding why flies are entering your home is a key step toward making sure they do not return after our team at Big Blue Bug Solutions initially controls them for you. Some steps to take to reduce the likelihood of flies in your home include:
