Hi I'm Mark Govan with ABC Pest Control in Largo, Florida and we get asked a lot how do you get rid of flies? Well flies are areal problem for people either inside the home or outside the home. Let's tackle inside the home. We have products that are called fly traps which are very effective inside the home. These are the little traps you see, put them on the wall. We have some that look just like pictures or photographs now but they emit a special light that the flies are attracted to and basically the flies go there and there is a little pest strip on the back that the flies can attach to when they fly to it. That's one way to get rid of flies inside the home. Outside the home we have fly traps where little hanging traps with the sticky strip on the inside and there is a little fly pheromone that we can put on that trap to actually attract the flies to those fly traps to help you get rid of flies. One other thing that we use outside are fly baits. These are also very effective products that you can spread around on the ground, outside the home and/or maybe around if you are having a problem around the garbage can area or something like that. You can spray these little pellets or scatter the pellets around these areas and the flies are attracted to them. Once they feed on them it takes them about 20 seconds and then the fly will die. All these methods are great to get rid of flies but number one thing to do is try to eliminate the flies prior to them coming to your area and you can do that through a good cleaning up of the area and trying to remove any of the garbage or refuse around the home. These are all good tips to help you get rid of flies around your home. I'm Mark Govan with ABC Pest Control in Largo, Florida helping you have a pest free day.
