Cluster Flies (Pollenia rudis)

Cluster Fly treatments start from £70.00 + VAT.

The common House Fly and the Bluebottle are both found throughout the world and are in the order Diptera (two-wings) which contains over 100,000 species. It a well known fact that Flies can bring a large variety of diseases into contact with humans.

The female fly lays her eggs onto a suitable food medium, rotting organic material for the house fly and all types of meat for the bluebottle. The eggs will hatch after a day into that well known larvae the maggot. (Its the bluebottle maggot that many anglers use.) The larvae stage takes about a week to complete, this is followed by the pupa stage, after 1-2 weeks the adult fly will emerge. Sizeable infestations can occur given the right conditions.

Flies can be treated with cans of fly sprays, electric fly killers, electric fly traps, approved pesticides, and can be kept out of premises with the use of fly screens.

Apc Affordable Pest Control will lease, sell and service electric fly killers and fly traps. We can also give expert advise on suitable mounting points for them, using the latest UV (Ultraviolet) meters. As well as supply and fit fly screens to windows and doors we can also advise on any insecticide treatment that might be necessary.

Cluster flies may enter homes during the Autumn and become a nuisance. They cause no damage and will not reproduce indoors. Unlike other, similar flies, cluster flies do not develop in manure or garbage but rather are parasitic on earthworms.

Cluster fly larvae develop inside earthworms so they tend to be more of a nuisance problem in homes that are surrounded by turf areas that support large earthworm populations like pastures, golf courses, large well-managed lawns, and cemeteries. Flies emerge from their earthworm hosts in the Autumn and congregate, often in large numbers, on nearby homes. Flies that gain entry can be a nuisance all winter. Control efforts should concentrate on excluding flies from entering homes in the Autumn. Do not attempt to control earthworms as this may actually damage the soil and turf.

Before commencing any treatment you should contact us for advice on all fly infestation and control.
