FlyFlies can find their way into practically any living space, their ability to infect surfaces with bacteria resulting in serious disease and food poisoning coupled with the relative frequency of encounters with this pest means that serious action must be taken to eliminate this pest from your commercial or residential property.
Flies will often feed and lay eggs on rubbish, manure and dead animals before flying off to land on food preparation areas or object used orally, such as a glass. When feeding,  a house fly will regurgutate its stomach contents onto its food, to liquify it and make it easier for them to ingest. Surfaces and food may also be contaminated by the fly defating.
