Controlling Garbage to Control Flies
Because garbage is a primary breeding ground for flies, there are a few things homeowners can do to help prevent house flies from invading their yards and homes
Flies tend to seem like more of an annoyance than a threat because they don't sting—they don't even bite much. They just hover over your food, carrying any number of germs that can lead to life-threatening diseases, coupled with the sheer disgust factor that they were just snacking on rotting garbage, road kill or the dog piles your neighbors pup kindly left in your yar
Even nastier to imagine, flies are the adult form of maggots—the small, white worms found in rotting flesh that coroners often use to decide how long something has been dead. Needless to say, fly control is a necessary, sanitary requirement and begins with prevention measures both on the inside and outside of your home. Pest removal is often more difficult than pest prevention. By considering a few tips for fly control, homeowners can help to prevent a fly outbreak before they are faced with the trouble of fly removal
The first step to control any fly problem successfully is to determine where the fly maggots are breeding. This process, termed source reduction, is always the most efficient method of control.
If there are only a few flies around at any one time, then the breeding area may not be on your property. Since flies feed and lay eggs in areas such as garbage cans or dog kennels which are sources of food odors, cleaning these areas eliminates the problem.We All Have Garbage
