3 x Interesting facts about flies
1. House flies live on a liquid diet
Yes, that’s correct. Flies tend to live off a diet based on liquids. Why? Well, that’s just how they are built. See, they lack the mouthparts needed to chew food, so instead, they have to drink it.
2/How do house flies eat?
A house fly will regurgitate digestive juices onto solid foods and these juices break down the food into small pieces, allowing them to use their mouthparts, called proboscis, to drink the meal.
Due to their feeding and breeding habits (more on that later) house flies come into contact with a range of harmful bacteria such as Salmonella and E.coli.
HOW IT WORKS | HOUSE FLIES?
A house treatment for fly control requires an interior and partial exterior spray. We use directional sprayers inside your home so we can control where the chemicals are applied. This means we only apply chemicals to the areas to be treated.
Misters and foggers are commonly used inside NZ homes by Pest Control companies. Misters and foggers produce very small particles and are excellent for exterior vector control or specialized jobs. Inside your home the very small particles are difficult to control. This can result in too much exposure of you and your family to pesticides. ACES pest control's directional sprayers produce larger particles are can be controlled in their application. This reduces the exposure of pesticides to you and your family.
FRUIT FLIES | MOTH FLIES
Fruit flies and drain flies need a different approach. Firstly we need to complete an inspection to see if you are suitable for a treatment. Please call or send an e-mail to discuss your situation.
The Pyrethroid sprays used for fly treatments are considered to be low toxicity to humans and their pets.
