Doing Effective Fly Control Specially Created for Cluster Fly Concerns
Many fly species invade our homes. Knowing the correct species is crucial for an effective control programme, as flies differ in their behaviour and breeding habitat.Cluster flies do not feed nor reproduce within buildings. They develop as parasites of earthworms and are particularly active in the spring just after earthworms and robins appear. In spring and summer the adult flies lay eggs in soil and the maggots move to and develop within earthworms.
They are named cluster flies because of their habit of congregating in large groups or swarms, often in dark places such as attics, corners of dark rooms, ‘nooks and crannies' and ‘cracks and crevices'.
Each fly releases a pheromone (smell) that attracts others. This pheromone will linger on, even after all the flies have been destroyed and removed. Thus the pheromone will continue to attract cluster flies to that area and clusters will keep recurring. It is therefore important that treatments are continued even when there are no flies present.How to control cluster flies
Kill the adults to prevent them laying eggs in surrounding grass. Kill the larvae in the grass to prevent the adults clustering in your buildings.
If you have the adult flies swarming and clustering in the house or other building you need to carry out a full program of treatment.If possible it is best to prevent the problem of these flies moving into your home by treating the larvae in the soil before they become adult flies.
