Fly-Free Zone: Expert Strategies for Eliminating Pesky Pests

Flies may be annoying when they swarm over your property, especially in groups. However, certain fly species constitute a health concern to people. House flies, for instance, can spread a variety of illnesses, including salmonella, TB, dysentery, cholera, and parasitic worms. In New Zealand, flies pose a significant danger of disease transmission.

Flies are frequently the primary cause of cholera and dysentery-like diseases. Even in normal settings, children and the elderly are more likely to get more frequent infections, such as salmonella food poisoning from fly-contaminated food. However, worry not, we are here to help you out! BugZero is a team of experts committed to providing you with a pest-free zone in Auckland.

Common Fly Species in Auckland

House Fly
The common housefly typically dominates the fly population in Auckland households and commercial establishments. These medium-sized flies are often drawn to light sources and easily enter through open windows. They’re also attracted by food scents that lead them into indoor spaces where they may settle on exposed food in kitchens and other areas.

Lesser House Fly
The lesser housefly, in Auckland, is slightly diminutive compared to the Housefly. It tends to engage in circular flights and typically hovers around the center of rooms or near ceiling fixtures. Their perpetual buzzing is usually bothersome. Given their tendency to stay airborne during the day, traditional residual surface treatments may be less efficacious, thus requiring a combination of fly control strategies for optimal results.

Blow Fly
It’s common to spot blowflies in Auckland, although they don’t gather in large numbers like houseflies. They’re quite noisy and, similar to houseflies, tend to buzz around light sources such as windows. With their large size and prominent eyes, they’re not exactly inconspicuous. If you see a bunch of blowflies, it might indicate a nearby rotting carcass like a rat or decaying protein. They can also be a secondary issue if there’s a dead rodent in the walls or ceiling, often accompanied by their maggots.

Due to their size and metabolism, blowflies may take a bit longer to be eradicated by residual insecticide treatments, but such treatments are still effective against them.

Signs of a Fly Infestation

Seeing a few buzzing flies may not imply an infestation, but it should serve as a warning sign to take preventive actions.

Potential signs to notice:

  • Small, dark clusters of spots in well-lit areas, roughly the size of a pinhead.
  • Regular sightings of flies in various areas of your home, near food sources, or around bins.
  • The presence of maggots indicates potential breeding sites on your property.

Consider implementing fly control methods such as light traps around your residence if any of these signs are observed. While these may reduce adult fly populations, they won’t address potential breeding grounds. Professional intervention for treating such sites is crucial for effective long-term fly management.

Health Risks Associated With Flies

The common house fly is recognized for transporting harmful microorganisms capable of inducing severe and potentially fatal illnesses in both humans and animals. More than 100 pathogens, spanning bacteria, viruses, fungi, and various parasites, have been linked to this insect.

House flies typically inhabit areas rich in decaying organic matter like faeces, animal waste, and carrion, fostering close contact with various microorganisms, including human pathogens that can cling to their bodies. Their frequent travels between breeding sites and human habitats facilitate the transmission of these pathogens to both humans and animals.

I recently used BugZero's services to get rid of the 8 legged monsters in and around my house. Within the same day bodies were turning up, flies were dropping and the ants have disappeared. I would highly recommend the company as they were very friendly to deal with. It was all the better as I found the BugZero technicians competent and trustworthy. I will definitely be using their service again.
