A pest control problem involving houseflies can irritate homeowners. The common housefly is approximately 1/6 to 1/4 inches long. In addition, an adult housefly has an angled fourth wing vein, and the top of the fly’s thorax has four dark colored stripes that run lengthwise. A fly’s face features two downy stripes. The top stripe is silver while the bottom one is gold. Male flies have a shorter distance between their eyes than female flies. Furthermore, houseflies are similar to another fly called the face fly. Homeowners can determine a face fly infestation by the size of the insects as the pest is bigger and darker.

How Flies enter your home

Flies enter a home through holes that are next to window screens along with small cracks that may be near doors or windows. In some cases, homeowners may bring them into the house on produce. Flies also enter a home when residents forget to close windows or doors. Flies are unsanitary, and homeowners should eliminate them quickly since they often land on food preparation surfaces. San Antonio’s climate encourages houseflies to breed. Therefore, residents may consider taking extra precautions to stop the pests from invading their home.

To prevent a fly infestation, homeowners should wash all of the produce that they bring into their home. They should also remove garbage.
