Flies are one type of pest that home and business owners expect to see around New Jersey in the spring, summer, and fall. Flies are a common sight throughout New Jersey but you do not have to resign yourself to living with these pests. To protect your home or business from flies in New Jersey, you need to learn about the behavior of this pest, take steps for prevention, and find effective treatment options should an infestation occur.
What are Flies?
Flies are winged insects that feed off of any type of food or decaying matter that they can find. The NJ pest control experts at Viking Pest explain flies can often be found near trashcans, picnics, and buzzing around decaying matter such as animal carcasses. This pest often finds its way into homes or businesses in search of food. Once inside, flies are annoying and often avoid the elimination efforts of home and business owners because they can move quickly.
How to Identify Flies
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) outlines the series of significant changes that flies undergo from the time they are eggs until they reach adulthood. After they hatch, flies start as larvae and are often called maggots. In the next stage of growth, flies develop a hardened shell and are called a pupa. Once the hardened shell is developed, the adult fly can reach maturity. The common housefly is about 1/4th of an inch long with six legs and two wings. The rapid movement of their wings can cause the buzzing sound that is often associated with flies.
What Problems Can Flies Cause for New Jersey Home and Business Owners?
Flies are annoying pests that can bother your family or customers if they get inside your New Jersey home or business. Unfortunately, flies have the potential to do much more than simply be an annoyance. This pest comes in contact with a variety of decaying materials including waste and animal carcasses. Because of this, flies are carriers and transmitters of conditions such as diarrhea, cholera, food poisoning, dysentery, and eye infections. The NJ pest control experts at Viking Pest explain to protect the people who are in and out of your New Jersey home or business, you need to take steps to eliminate flies that have made it inside and prevent them in the future.

Flies are active in New Jersey once the weather starts to warm up. The spring and summer are the typical seasons where flies can start to be big pests. Flies can remain active well into the fall season in New Jersey.
