While we all look forward to the abundant sunshine that spring and summer bring us, we don’t look forward to the flies it brings. Their excessive buzzing can become annoying and when they settle on our clothes, skin, or pets, that annoyance increases. They’re also prone to carrying diseases and can transfer them to humans and pets when they land on them. These diseases include cholera, typhoid fever, and tuberculosis. Here are some tips  to keep them away from your home this summer from an exterminator in Glen Burnie.

How to Keep Flies Away

Though flies that make their way into your home only live up to 25 days, they reproduce and grow very quickly. It only takes a few days for a fly to turn from larvae to an adult inside your home. The flies will use soluble foodstuff to put their eggs inside and then the larvae will feed on it. The best way to stop this from happening is to remove anything that flies can use to their advantage such as standing water and an abundance of garbage bags indoors and outdoors. Flies don’t need a ton of water to stay hydrated. All it takes is a bit of moisture on the window to satiate them so be sure to fix dripping faucets and toss away any leftovers. If you’ve taken all the steps to remove food sources including dying plants, compost piles, and rotting mulch, and the flies are not going away, it’s time to contact the professionals.
