Controlling flies

In spring and summer, flies can be a huge nuisance. In addition, they are not hygienic insects, so you should always cover drinks and food outside. Indoors, you can also be very bothered by flies. If windows and doors are open and you do not have protection for them, you will have several flies flying around your house in no time. There are numerous different types of flies, the most well-known being the house fly. Another type of fly is the cluster fly.

Cluster flies are larger than house flies and they bear this name because, especially in autumn and winter, they form clusters of sometimes thousands of flies. Here they collectively seek a sheltered place to spend the winter. This can be cavity walls, attics or barns. You can therefore suffer from cluster flies even in winter. This is why it is important to control cluster flies. By controlling cluster flies, you can prevent them from entering your home or coming back the following winter.

Disturbance from cluster flies? These are the main symptoms

In the summer and early fall, you will have little nuisance from cluster flies. They will only be as bothersome as the house fly. But when temperatures drop, cluster flies start looking for a sheltered place to hibernate. The habit is for them to form a cluster of hundreds to thousands of flies and wait out the winter in a particular spot packed together. Corners, alcoves and holes in houses are favorites for this, but so are tall buildings, for example, where they can hide under the roof or attic. It is not pleasant if you have such a group of flies in the attic, even though you may rarely go there. When spring arrives, the flies will want to go outside again. You will then be able to find them en masse on the inside of the windows and cluster fly control is necessary.

Where do mosquitoes come from?
Cluster flies occur all over the world. However, they do often depend on people and the waste that people leave behind. Only very cold or hot areas, such as the Arctic and Antarctica or certain desert areas, you don’t have to expect tether flies. In addition, the cluster fly, like all other types of flies, is frequently found near livestock and garbage. These are also the places where flies lay their eggs and where the larvae hatch. An important characteristic of cluster flies is that they survive autumn and winter by congregating in clusters to survive the winter in sheltered places.

What not to do above all?
Once you have suffered from cluster flies, chances are they will return the following winter. The flies leave behind a substance that attracts other flies or serves as a landmark. So you know that you have holes or cracks in your home through which they come in. So what you should especially not do is do nothing about this. If you do not close the holes and cracks, then you can be sure that next winter you will have visitors again and will have to fight mosquitoes again.

What can you do?

As soon as possible, preferably before autumn arrives, check your home for possible entrances for the flies. These can be cracks or holes, but also edges of window frames that are not properly sealed. So check your exterior walls carefully and repair damage. Old windows that do not close or insulate quite properly are also possible passageways for mosquito cooties. So address these issues as well and make sure window frames are properly sealed. This not only helps against mosquito bugs, you also improve the insulation value of the house. If you have a lot of problems with mosquitoes, it helps to hire a pest controller. They can control cluster flies with the right resources.

How can you prevent cluster flies?

Seal all holes and cracks and joints in your home and also properly seal window frames. If you have open ventilation holes in the wall, then it is also very easy for kluster flies to get inside. It is best to cover the ventilation holes with a fine grid. Anyway, after that, it is also useful to install mosquito nets for windows and doors. This is not only for preventing cluster flies, but also against house flies and all other pests. If you have ever suffered from cluster flies, you can spray affected areas with a pesticide. This way, you will prevent them from coming back. Call in a pest control company for this if necessary.

Fighting mosquitoes? Follow these 5 tips:

  1. Do you have a cluster of flies in your home during the winter? You will notice that they are less active during the winter. It is even possible to vacuum up an entire cluster. Afterwards, however, immediately spray the vacuum cleaner bag with pesticide and throw it away.
  2. Do not invite cluster flies yourself by keeping your house open. Seal all holes and cracks.
  3. Is it now spring and you discover cluster flies? Then do open the window in that room, because they are now eager to get outside.
  4. Spray the entire room with a pesticide. Feel free to use a lot of pesticide, so you can be sure that the flies are dead, and clean the room well.
  5. For very large clusters, it is helpful if you have the pest controller come by to control the cluster flies.
