Why get rid of Flies?

I have not met anyone who likes seeing flies in their home. Apart from preventing sightings and that constant buzzing noise, it is a good idea to get rid of flies as they have been known to spread diseases like diarrhoea, dysentery, and salmonella. Flies will quickly contaminate your food and also stain surfaces with their droppings, known as fly spots.

How to be free of Flies

A surface treatment on the areas flies like to land and rest will keep fly numbers down and kill off any strays. This is done with a direct spray to their rest areas using a broad spectrum pyrethroid and synergist to block the immune response of the flies and ensure they don’t get back up.

We identify any sources of fly infestation, areas they feed and breed, in and around your home to provide recommendations for remedy or removal of these.

We also provide you with specific information and tips based on our observations to reduce future infestations and maintain the results of the treatment to keep you fly free.

Safety is always our top priority with treatments. Some of the measures we take with fly control are ensuring children and pets are excluded from treatment zones until product is dry, applying product on out of reaches surfaces, and not using more product than is necessary which is taking care of our environment too. We will provide you with clear direction on this as part of our safety-first approach.

For fly control we will require access inside your home to carry out the treatment. You and your pets will need to vacate the house for 5 hours to allow for treatment and while product dries for your safety. We will work with you to make arrangements which are suitable and convenient to you.

Although a few flies may be bearable, why would you want to keep them buzzing around constantly when they spread disease, contaminate food and stain your home with their poop?!

Small winter populations can quickly become large populations when summer rolls around. Prevention is always better to keep ahead of summer breeding rates. Ultimately it is your choice if you want to live with flies or not.

The best way to keep flies away long term is ongoing treatment. Having a strong, well applied insecticide will prevent flies from ever making your home their home. Removing major sources of attraction for flies will also be key to keeping flies out of your home.

Flies are unlikely to disappear without treatment. This answer will be different for everyone, but the considerations are the same. How much do you want to remove flies from your home? How much time and money do you have to dedicate to this task? And how certain are you, you will be able to get a result based on the knowledge and product you have at hand? Take a look at the DIY question below to get an idea of what it will take.

To get the best relief from fleas a professional treatment really is going to get the quickest results with complete elimination, and those results are guaranteed

Fly spray is the classic go-to for DIY fly treatments, so-much so that you probably don’t even think of it as DIY. It is probably so common to reach for a can of fly spray every time you hear a buzzing sound you don’t even think about the pesticide you are spraying into the air, and don’t give a second thought to the smell of it as you breath it in each time you spray the room. If you are old school with a spray can you have some control of this, if you have an automatic dispenser then this happens every thirty minutes or so. Other than the non-targeted and overuse of insecticide with these DIY methods, there is also the environmental impact from the waste of all those empty spray cans to consider.

Anyone who has watched a segment of Fair Go on the effectiveness of domestic fly sprays will see that many of them just put the flies to sleep for a while instead of killing them outright. DIY fly treatments may work, and you will likely have your own experience to go on here with respect to cost, effectiveness, and the effort of having to interrupt your current task to spray a fly when it appears or to replace another can in the dispenser.

In our professional opinion DIY fly products are commonly ineffective for control of more than the occasional fly. A professional surface treatment is long lasting, effective, maintenance free, and doesn’t carry the risk of inhaling insecticides every time there is a fly in the room. For more than a few flies, you can unknowingly spend a lot of time, effort, and money on DIY treatments with less than satisfactory results. A lot more time suffering through that annoying buzzing.

Cleanliness inside and outside your home is important for reducing flies. Locating compost heap, and gardens away from the house, cleaning up after pets, not leaving food out will help. Beyond this keeping your windows and doors closed at all times will stop them entering your home, though this is unlikely to be a desirable way to live.

For fly treatments we recommend you cover food or put it away in the pantry, i.e furit bowls, cover any fish tanks too. Make plans for you and your pets to vacate the house for 5 hours to allow for treatment and while product dries for your safety. We will provide you clear direction on this as part of our safety-first approach.

Unfortunately, flies will find you anywhere in the Wellington region.

They are most attracted to homes with water leaks and easy food sources, pets, and compost. They love a sunny spot and will make their way inside in search of shelter in wet summer weather. Homes close to farms, or the sea may be further suspectable to fly populations as these environments support many more species.

Blue bottle blow flies and house Flies are the two most common fly species we see.

Blue bottles are a large slow-moving fly with a metallic blue abdomen. Whilst the house fly is small, black and fast moving. The house fly is the general culprit for all the nasty fly spotting on walls, door frames, lights etc. Some other species we may see are, tiny fruit flies, hover flies, and cluster flies.
