Three Signs You Have A Fly Infestation
Did you know that female house flies lay 100 eggs at a time and they all hatch within 24 hours? Flies reproduce quicker than almost every other household pest and can quickly infest your home. Having flies buzzing around is really annoying, but it can also be dangerous for your health. They crawl on almost everything and whatever they land on, including rotting food and feces they pick up and carry on their legs, allowing for disease and infections to spread. Here are three signs that you are dealing with a serious fly infestation and you should call Baltimore fly control experts.
1. You Have Flies In Your Home
Though this seems like an obvious sign, many people don’t act when they first appear thinking they are relatively harmless. If you have one or two flies, you can usually take care of the problem yourself. However, if you have more than that, you may want to consider working with a Baltimore fly control expert.
2. You’ve Found Maggots
Maggots are baby flies and if they are present in your home, you are about to have a serious infestation. Definitely take the time to check for maggots if you see a fly in your home. Female flies love to lay eggs in trash and rotting food. Maggots look like small grains of rice and can be found in trash cans, leftover food on the counter, and litter box. They love any place in your home that is moist and dark.
3. You’ve Found Random Dark Clusters
If you’re cleaning and find clusters of little black dots, you’ve come across fly feces. Fly feces is a sure sign that you are dealing with an infestation. They are commonly found on windowsills, near drains, trash bins, and on the top of the fridge. Clean these up as soon as you find them, then call a Baltimore fly control specialist.
Any of these three signs means your home is either infested or on its way to being infested. Flies can be relatively easy to get rid of on your own.
