Flies are one of the most common household pests and are just as likely to inhabit commercial facilities. These insects are characterized by having a single set of wings and are typically 1/8 inch or larger and range in color from dull tan to black, depending on the type of fly. At Redline Pest Control we frequently encounter houseflies and fruit flies.
Like many pests flies inhabit homes and businesses searching for a food source and ideal conditions to breed and live. Flies are attracted to areas where there is food such as meat, fresh fruit and vegetables but they will also consume garbage, fermenting liquids, decaying vegetation and waste. While flies may seem harmless, they are capable of contaminating food and spreading disease.
