House flies are a common name for the common fly. House flies are not just found in the house. When flies are inside our homes, they are coming inside the structure at some entry point. The best way to get rid of house flies is to keep them out in the first place. To keep them out, check your window and door screening for holes, look for cracks around doors and check any outside vents for any possible places where flies can enter.

Rotting fruits and vegetables, decaying organic material, pet and other manure, damp garbage are their breeding grounds. Here in our local area of Hampton Roads, the rural areas may tend to be more problematic to control the fly breeding sites.

House flies mature and breed quickly and it doesn’t take long for a small problem of a few flies to turn into a large problem of hundreds of flies. Each adult female fly begins laying eggs just a few days after hatching. As long as there is warm weather, you can count on a series of five or six batches of 75 to 100 eggs laid and hatched within 12 to 24 hours. These new hatchling flies will mature in just 4 to 7 days. Doing the math, it is much better to take care of a fly infestation without delay.
