Understanding Your Adversary - Common Fly Species in the UK and Their Risks

Effective fly control begins with identifying and understanding the common fly species you might be dealing with. The UK is home to several types of flies, each with unique behaviors and potential risks. Among these, the most commonly encountered are:

  • Houseflies (Musca domestica): Known for their persistence, houseflies can spread diseases by contaminating food and surfaces.
  • Fruit Flies (Drosophila spp.): Small yet bothersome, fruit flies are attracted to fermenting fruits and vegetables, often found in kitchens.
  • Bluebottle Flies (Calliphora vomitoria): Attracted to decaying organic matter, these flies can indicate unhygienic conditions or dead animals nearby.
  • Cluster Flies (Pollenia rudis): Often found in quiet, undisturbed parts of buildings, especially attics, during the colder months.

The risks associated with flies include:

  • Disease Transmission: Flies can carry and spread diseases such as salmonella, E. coli, and other pathogens.
  • Contamination: Their feeding and breeding habits can contaminate food and surfaces.
  • Discomfort and Stress: The presence of flies can be irritating and distressing to people and pets alike.
