Domestic flies can be a nuisance and are also identified with the mechanical transfer of disease organisms. Pathogenic organisms can be transferred by domestic flies, especially the House fly, where faecal matter, vomitus drops and bacteria adhering to the fly are deposited on human food or food preparation areas. There are over 16000 types of flies in North America several domestic species, however are easily identifiable by various outstanding features such as colour or behavioral characteristics.
Fly infestation can cause significant effect on human health, the common house fly multiplies rapidly and is one of the most prevalent of all insect pests. It has been associated with over 100 different disease pathogens, including salmonella, cholera and tuberculosis, so it is important to manage pest outbreaks. Some of the common fly species and their life style are as under.
Length: Adult 3-6mm
Colour: Adult is grey with yellowish abdomen Adult has four dark longitudinal strips on the thorax red eyes.
Colour: Adult is dark grey,adult has yellow hairs at side of thorax.
Colour: Light gray or tan body and lighter wings with hairs on the body
Eggs are laid in irregular masses almost anywhere decomposing organic materials are found. Under favorable conditions, the flies can go through one generation in as little as one week. Drain fly hibernates in organic food waste, sewage, drain and do not spread disease.
Colour: ten yellow with red eyes
Life cycle: the female fruit fly will lay between 500 and 2,000 eggs, one at a time, usually on or near fermenting fruits or other decaying organic material. The eggs, contained in a moist secretion, are left on rinds, fruit meat and other, usually damp sources.
The larvae hatch out in about a day, then feed for five or more days on the yeasts produced in the fermenting vegetable matter (or drain slime) before moving to a drier location to pupate. They take two days to become sexually mature. Flies live no more than one or two weeks and mate twice during their short live
Sanitation is the most effective and important step in reducing pest numbers.
Dry and wrap organic waste before placing it in the garbage can.
Seal garbage cans with tight fitting lids.
Screen windows and doors to keep pests out.
Use indoor fly traps or sticky tape to manage pests inside the house.
Keep the Big Stinky Fly Trap outdoors to reduce the number of adult pests during warm weather.
Follow proper manure management practices to reduce populations in animal facilities such as stables and kennels.
Fly parasites are small, harmless (to humans and animals) beneficial insects that nature has programmed to attack and kill flies when the pest is in its immature pupal stage. For best results, release 500 parasites per large animal (horse, cow, etc.) or 5 parasites per cubic foot (manure or compost pile).
If pest populations become intolerable, spot treat with least-toxic, natural pesticides as a last resort.
