Why Do I Have a Fly Problem?
Fly problems can pop up out of nowhere. One minute there are no flies around; the next minute, there are swarms of flies. Flies have a short lifespan but are prolific breeders, and populations can quickly build. Flies are highly attracted to decaying foods and other organic matter that they feed or lay eggs on.
Some things found in most of our outdoor spaces that may attract flies include:
- Trash receptacles
- Recycling bins
- Compost containers
- Outdoor eating areas
- Pet waste
- Garden areas
Where Will I Find Flies?
Flies thrive in the same habitats people do, which means flies can become a problem in any New York home or business. Many things allow flies to flourish in an area, including garbage, decaying vegetation, excrement, fruits and vegetables, carrion, and fermenting liquids.
Flies mainly live outside. However, if they find their way inside a building and food and breeding sites are available, they can also complete their life cycle indoors. They can become a problem in homes, restaurants, grocery stores, health facilities, warehouses, and more.
