Habits

Houseflies are attracted to any accessible food or organic waste. As they are only able to feed on liquids they turn many solid foods into a liquid so they can digest.

Threats

Houseflies have been known to carry over 100 varieties of disease-causing germs, which render them unwelcome house guests. In particular, houseflies can transmit a wide range of disease-causing microbes, including those responsible for food poisoning, dysentery, tuberculosis, cholera and parasitic worm infections.

Prevention

  • Organic material should not be left where it might attract flies.
  • Remove trash regularly and use well-sealing garbage receptacles.Use Fly screens on doors and windows to prevent fly entry.
