Fly Control Information
"What's bugging me is flies?" The biggest request we get from Aucklanders over the summer months.
Why are flies so bad for you?
We have a number of types of flies in Auckland. All are a nuisance and pose a hygiene risk. Unfortunately the type of fly that interacts with humans are some of the most capable of spreading disease. The reason flies are so unhygenic is because of the environments they prefer to live and breed in (unsanitary conditions, rotting vegetation and animals). In these places, disease-causing agents have been found to survive on outside body surfaces of flies as well as their gut and blood systems.
Flies liquidise their food before they suck it up by producing saliva which is poured onto their (your) food. Flies also frequently vomit onto the food while feeding. And if that wasn't enough they also frequently defecate while feeding.
If you're eating food that they've been eating ...........well, you're eating all this as well.
Types of fly
The common types of fly that you're likely to encounter in Auckland are;
Common Housefly and Blowfly
Midges and Sand flies
Identifying the type of fly is the initial step in determining the appropriate treatment. Treatments generally focus on;
Preventing flies entering your home or business.
Eradicating any flies that are present.
Bug King control measures can include;
Interior and exterior surface spraying with long lasting treatments.
Fly proofing with mesh and/or chain curtains (generally commercial only).
At Bug King we recommend you combine fly and spider treatments in a single treatment. The control of flying insects removes the a source of food for many spiders as well as controlling web building spiders that are the food source for Whitetail spiders.
