How Are Flies Getting Into My New Jersey Home?
July 18, 2019
Is there anything more annoying than flies buzzing around your head while you are trying to relax at home? The way these tiny bugs fly around rooms land on TV screens, walk on food, and fly past ears is enough to make a grown man want to scream. In fact, flies are such a huge nuisance, there was an invention made specifically to kill them--and named after them. Of course, we are referring to fly swatters. If you are ready to end the madness, find out what is drawing these nuisances into your home and what you can do about them.
Problems Flies Cause
As we have established, flies are a huge nuisance in the way they buzz around our homes. The question is, are they more than a nuisance? They are. Recent studies have show flies are capable of spreading 65 different dangerous diseases including cholera, conjunctivitis, dysentery, poliomyelitis, salmonellosis, and even leprosy. That’s right, leprosy. Fortunately, in our day and age, leprosy is very treatable. But regardless, it is a disease we can live without.
Typical Points Of Entry For Flies
It is not uncommon for a fly to zip in through an open door or window, but is this their only way of getting inside? Not in the slightest. Because of how small flies are, any hole, crack, gap, rip, or tear is enough for them to slip inside. If there is any of this damage to your home’s foundation, window/door frames, utility piping, screens, etc, flies have direct access to your home.
What Attracts Flies Into Homes
If you have ever waved flies away from your plate, you already know what draws flies into your home. Food. Whether it’s freshly cooked apple pie or the leftover crumbs of last weeks peach cobbler forgotten, behind the couch; if there is food in your home, flies will find it. And the more food they are able to find, the more they will reproduce and the more trouble they will be for you and your family.
