Infestations of flies can develop very quickly and can cause serious health and hygiene issues. Flies can carry and spread very nasty diseases such as E-coli and salmonella, contaminating food stuffs and even in some cases bite people. The minute hairs on the flies’ legs and feet pick up and retain the bacteria, harmful to humans. So, an infestation of flies should be a serious concern to both homeowners and businesses.
Seeing a few flies may not mean you have an infestation; however, it should act as a warning, especially if you see any of the following common signs:
- Maggots – these are flies at their larval stage, this could indicate a potential breeding site in your home or business.
- Regular sighting of flies in your home or business.
- Small dirty marks or spots – around light fitting and window frames (size if a pin head)
