Why Small Flying Insects Are So Annoying, and How to Get Rid of Them
Are you ready to rid yourself of small flying insects? From mosquitos to fruit flies, these pests can get really annoying, not to mention unhealthy. While you can purchase products to help control these bugs on your own, hiring a professional is usually easier, cheaper, and more effective.
Look at the following small flying insects and what you can do to get rid of them:
Houseflies contaminate food, skin and surfaces, while annoying you by buzzing and periodically landing on your body.
Let’s face it. Houseflies are simply disgusting. They’re your second-cousin-twice-removed who picks his nose at the family reunion, and then wants to play cards. Every time a fly lands, it vomits AND excretes, dissolving the surface it’s standing on with the acids released, and then sucks it all back up with a sponge-like mouth. Is it any wonder they’re known for spreading disease?
There’s a myth that flies only live one day, but they really live a full month. If it’s cold out, they can last even longer, and females lay 100 eggs at a time, up to 1,000 during their lifetimes. It’s important to get on infestations fast. One fly that comes in from outdoors is really not a problem. It’s the flies constantly circulating when you don’t know where they’re coming from that signal the need for professional help. Glue strips and sprays will only treat the symptoms of a housefly problem. It won’t root out the source.
Fruit flies are similar to houseflies in some respects, but they’re much more difficult to get rid of.
Fruit flies don’t bother people as much as houseflies. They won’t usually dive bomb you or attempt to slurp your skin off, but they do swarm foods, creating clouds of themselves in your kitchen and other areas where food has been left to decay. Sometimes fruit flies come from your garbage disposal, signaling a maintenance problem. Loose or malfunctioning parts can lead to a buildup of food that doesn’t get cleared away.
These can be some of the worst infestations to treat, because it can be very difficult to reach the source of the problem. A professional can use methods for disrupting the fruit fly propagation process, to stop the swarming tiny flies in their tracks no matter where or why they are in your home.
Mosquitoes bite, spreading pain and disease, and they can be impossible to control on your own.
Mosquitoes lay eggs by the thousands. They infiltrate standing water for breeding grounds, wherever it’s found, and can effectively mature in a teaspoon of water. They can also easily spread certain diseases, like West Nile Virus, when they bite; so, it’s imperative for you to learn how to cut their populations. A professional service can make easy work of flying insect control, and they’ll likely cost you less than purchasing dozens of DIY products waiting for one to work.
