Alternative Environments can help you learn how to get rid of fruit flies. An occasional fly may not seem like a serious matter, however in just a few weeks a single fly can be responsible for over a million descendants. And each of these flies poses a danger to human and animal health. Every time a fly lands on a surface, it can leave behind bacteria and other microorganisms responsible for disease, including typhoid fever, cholera, diarrheas, meningitis, salmonella and hepatitis.
Flies are attracted to both residential and commercial kitchen areas. If you are seeing flies in your kitchen, the first step is to remove the conditions that are attracting them. This means cleaning away any organic waste in the area, ensuring that trash bins are tightly closed and that food preparation surfaces are sanitized regularly. Keep doors and windows closed or screened to prevent fly entry. In commercial establishments, air curtains may also be necessary or required by law. AEL Pest Solutions has the expertise and experience to understand how to get rid of fruit flies.
Stables and farms are another attraction for flies. The female seeks decayed organic material like grass clippings and wet straw or manure in which to lay eggs. Flies spread diseases that threaten pet and animal health, and flies that suck blood can irritate and seriously injure horses.
Sewer flies are small flies that breed in damp, dirty drains. An infestation can usually be removed by cleaning out trapped or clogged drains. If this does not work, contact AEL Pest Solutions for help from our expert pest control team.
