Flying Insects




The most common fly is the house fly.  Flies are attracted to building or dwellings via air currents and odors with their preferred temperature being 83 degrees, on cooler days flies are usually found around doors and windows of dwellings.  During the day, flies will fly or rest less than 5 feet above ground, where at night tend to fly and rest above 5 feet. Flies have been known to harbor over 100 different diseases ranging from typhoid fever to salmonellosis.

Stored-product pests are usually brought into the home in an infested package of food. Initially, infestations are easy to overlook, because the insects involved are quite small, especially in the egg and larval stages.

Treatment: Remove infested product(s) and treat for live insects.  




Fabric-destroying insects cause much damage each year. In addition to large losses in commercial fabric manufacturing and storage operations, the many small damages caused in households add up to a significant figure.


Treatment:  Pheromone traps are installed in infested areas to catch the female to prevent her from producing eggs.  If possible, remove infested garment and/or fabric.
