Things that Attract Flies to the Home
As notoriously dirty pests, flies are unwelcome in residential areas. However, several things in homes and on lawns attract them. Since fecal matter is a main food source, flies are especially drawn to:
- Homes with pets
- Overripe fruits
- Sugary drinks
Prevention & Control
- Cleaning up thoroughly by wiping up liquid spills as soon as they occur
- Storing food in insect-proof containers
- Getting tightly sealed lids for both indoor and outdoor trash bins
If a fly infestation has already been established, homeowners should contact a local pest control expert. The pest control specialists at Western Pest can help identify and remove flies as well as the things that attract them.
