Throughout the fall, you will likely begin to see larger quantities of flies around the south and west-facing walls of your home or business. Typically this occurs when temperatures begin to drop and flies seek a warm place to begin nesting or seek shelter. However, if the flies are already overwintering, a warmer day may make them come out of hiding.
There are three distinct fly species that will become prevalent throughout the fall months; Cluster Flies, Fruit Flies and House Flies. While each of these fly species has its own unique characteristics, they are all considered a nuisance that can make your home or business less comfortable for its inhabitants. Aside from this distinct problem, they make terrible houseguests!
As a fly lands on solid foods, they will regurgitate digestive juices that break down the food into a liquid form. Because flies don’t have mouthparts, this allows them to consume a liquid diet with their proboscis and obtain regular meals. Because they have a liquid diet, flies will also defecate on nearly any surface they land on; potentially even on your food!
Keeping fall flies from entering your home or business requires you to remain proactive and limit their entry points inside of your home. While you may want to take advantage of the temperature, it is important to only open your windows if you have screens that have no visible damage. Flies don’t need a large gap to enter your home. Finding these potential entry points and sealing them is a critical first step in limiting their presence in your structure.
