Flies are very unsettling pests to have in the home, especially when they reach large numbers. Flies are highly mobile and can make no distinction between food that is prepared for humans or other surface that they land on, defecate on, walk over or eat.
They are able to smell rotting meat or flesh for up to a mile away. Flies have particularly unsavoury habits and represent a high contamination risk to the spread of disease. Flies eat fluid and have to liquidise the food before they can eat it. In order to do this they produce lots of saliva, this can be contaminated with disease causing agents.
What damage can Flies do?
There are many different species of fly, the most common being the Common House Fly, Blow Flies, Cluster Flies and Mosquitoes. All these species of fly are associated with transmitting diseases such as Salmonella, Dysentery, Tuberculosis and Cholera.

When your business becomes infested with flies this can have serious implications with risks to health of the general public and also your reputation.
