Blow Fly Infestation

Have a Fly Problem?

How to Identify Blow Fly Infestation

If you notice blow flies in your house all of a sudden, and they’re hard to miss because of the loud buzzing sounds they make, chances are, there may be a dead animal nearby. If you have a dead animal under your house or in your home, you will most likely be alerted by the smell of rotting flesh as well. Slightly larger than true houseflies, blow flies are metallic green, blue-orange or black in color. They are adult forms of maggots that might be infesting a dead bird or small animal in your yard or rotting meat in your garbage can or compost pile.

How can Blow Flies Affect Humans?

Adult blow flies create a plethora of disease potentials for humans, as they fly from dung and/or carrion to trash to your food. Blow flies are responsible for carrying the bacteria that causes dysentery, typhus, and cholera.

As blow flies can lay thousands of eggs in a life span with eggs maturing in 7-11 weeks, the potential for blow fly-induced illnesses and parasitic infestations can increase quickly. Linked to bacterial infections and transmitting salmonella as well, blow flies in your home need to be addressed by removing their breeding grounds and sanitizing your home.

How to Prevent Blow Fly Infestation

Getting into a strict sanitation routine can help prevent blow flies from invading your home. Removing blow fly-friendly conditions, by securing all food scraps in closed trash bags and in trash receptacles with tight-fitting lids will make a huge difference in maintaining a pest-free environment.
