Flies belong to an order called Diptera. 

Besides being annoying flies can spread disease. If food is left out flies can spoil it by making it fly blown. 

 are flies all the same?

There are many different types of flies with four main types being considered pests. 

  • Domestic house fly. These come in a variety of sizes and colours.
  • Cluster fly. As the name suggests they are found in groups or clusters.
  • Fruit fly. Small fly sometimes with red eyes. Commonly found around ripe fruit.
  • Moth fly or drain fly. Small brown fly with triangular shape. 

 

why do i have them?

  • House flies are a seasonal pest. In the hotter months they increase in numbers and become a pest in homes and businesses.
  • Cluster flies appear in mass when you have a lot of earth worms in your garden. They move inside your house or business when the weather cools down. Once inside they lay down a pheromone resulting in clusters or groups of flies. Due to the cool temperatures they are docile and slow moving. 
  • Fruit flies are often found in bars. Persistant pests in bars, cafes and restaurants. 
  • Moth or Drain flies need a nutrient rich water for their life cycle to work. Can be an indication  there is a drain and or sewerage issue.
