How To Get Rid Of A Fly Infestation Uk – A Simple Guide

It’s happened to many of us – you wake up to find a housefly infestation that has seemingly come out of nowhere! If you leave your flies in house untreated, they can spread disease, infest your food, and breed again and again.

They make your home or business feel squalid and might even damage your reputation with neighbours and clients. No one wants a fly problem in house – so, how can you get rid of them?

How Would You Get Rid of Flies in my Property?

How To Get Rid of Flies

Follow these four steps to get rid of flies in your house for good.

1) PREVENTION: Practice good fly prevention by proofing your windows and doors, and checking that your roof vents aren’t letting them in.

2) CLEANING: Stringent house cleaning is the best way to prevent flies from taking over in your home. To prevent houseflies, be especially careful to remove decaying food and faeces (such as used nappies and bags of dog and cat waste). Fruit flies are attracted to sugary squash and soft drinks, wine and beer, and fruit. Drain flies are drawn to moist areas, like drains, puddles, and standing water, so ensure that these are kept dry and/or removed.

3) IDENTIFICATION AND EXTERMINATION: In order to target and get rid of your fly problem in house, you first need to correctly identify the type of fly infestation. Are they cluster flies, house flies, or fruit flies? Each species requires its own extermination methods, so you need to know what you’re dealing with.

Get in Touch with Experts

Sometimes the best course of action is to get in touch with the experts. While your DIY solutions might ease a minor fly infestation, a professional exterminator can get rid of house flies for good. Not only will we get rid of the flies in your house now, but we’ll also find the breeding sites and eradicate them completely.

How To Get Rid of Cluster Flies in UK

When you went to sleep everything was normal, but you woke up to a swarm of flies on your windows – what happened? It sounds like you have a cluster fly problem.

What Are Cluster Flies?

Also known as attic flies, cluster flies are big black flies that fly very slowly and ‘cluster’ in groups, usually around windows and doors. Arriving into your home in waves, they tend to head indoors in large numbers in the fall months. They lay their eggs outdoors in the late summer, which then hatch in the fall. That’s when they’ll try to head into your home and try to hibernate there during the colder months.

Cluster flies can squeeze their way into even the smallest cracks in your home’s envelope, accessing cracks in your doors and windows. They like light and heat, which is why they often hang out on windows during the day. Once they are inside, the only way to get rid of cluster flies in house is to kill them, so it’s always a good idea to prevent them in the first place.

While cluster flies are unsightly and annoying, it’s helpful to remember that they are not actually dangerous or unhygienic. They lay their eggs in earthworm burrows, not in food, and they are not associated with rotting flesh or food.

Try these tips to get rid of cluster flies:
  1. USE A HOOVER
    Hoover up live and dead insects, and regularly hoover all carpets and floors.
  2. SEAL UP CRACKS IN YOUR HOME
    Have a professional exterminator assess your home for cracks around windows, doors, and in the roof. Check the attic and eaves to ensure they aren’t hiding out.
  3. SET TRAPS
    Commercial traps may not look very nice, but sticky tape and electric fly zappers will help to catch and kill cluster flies.

DIY Fly Solutions – How To Get Rid Of A Fly Problem In The House

Of course, the best way to get rid of flies in the house is to prevent them in the first place! Always be on the lookout for places where they can get inside and spawn, and remove standing water, old food, and other potential breeding grounds.

PLANT FLOWERS THAT REPEL FLIES
One way to repel flies is to surround your home with plants and flowers that they despise. Try planting lavender, basil, mint, marigolds, bay, and nasturtiums. This method doesn’t always work, but your garden will smell wonderful!

INSTALL SCREENS ON DOORS AND WINDOWS
In the winter you can keep your home sealed uptight, but this isn’t possible in the warmer months. If you want to keep the air flowing and cool but don’t want to welcome flies indoors, install fly screens on your doors and windows.

SET OUT SOME VINEGAR AND SOAP TRAPS
Make a mix of vinegar and liquid soap and add a dash of sugar or honey. The flies will be attracted to the sugary blend and will be trapped by the viscosity of the soap.

MAKE BOTTLE TRAPS
Cut the top third off of a 2-litre soft drink bottle, and then invert the top back into the base and tape the two sections together securely.

Add some fizzy pop or sugar water into the base – the flies will be attracted to the sweet liquid and will fly down into the bottle, and they won’t be able to get back out.

As a bonus, this will also kill wasps, but keep an eye out to make sure it doesn’t trap any bees.

I have a tenanted property and am not local to it. James was diligent, professional and considerate with both the tenant of the property and I; giving us advice on how to deal with the rodent issue we had. I would highly recommend James and Pestcue to solve the problem First rate, honest and keeps to his word.

Been hearing scuttling for about a week until two nights ago when it sounded like someone was breaking into our kitchen. We went in to find a huge rat running around the surfaces. The next day we called James from pest cure and he was here within a few hours. During the visit he located the hole the rat was coming through & even saw the rat. By the time he left the kitchen was put back perfectly with two heavy duty traps hidden by the hole (non of those Amazon pieces of plastic). Although he said it could take a week, that night we heard a thwack and saw a dead rat in the morning. Called up James and he said he’d be here the same day to pick up the rat and fill the hole.For something that can make you feel so disgusting in a house, James sorted us perfectly and I highly recommend Pestcure. 10/10.

James is a very professional and knowledgeable pest controller. We are currently using his services for a bed bug related issue and he had been brilliant throughout the process, always able to fit in an appointment at convenient times. Would highly recommend him.

Unfortunately my issue with Mice in my flat was not resolved. James told me I had a “mild infestation” which I assumed would have been easy for a professional to deal with.Unfortunately, a bit more than a month after James’s initial visit, we still see mice in the flat.James was professional and explained that that there are holes in my walls which are large and difficult to reach which I understand and appreciate. Additionally, James was very responsive and came out to the flat a number of times to investigate the situation which is highly appreciated.However, I hired Pestcure to help me sort out an issue, paid their fee, but after a number of visits the issue continues to persist.Response to reply: I don’t understand why this is so disappointing to you. Imagine my disappointment then when I still see rodents in my flat after I paid your fee. I did mention that I appreciate the fact that you came out multiple times and I did mention that James tried his best. Also the claim that I did not close the holes is ridiculous and undermines your response. This is because I could not close the holes while James had traps and other rodenticides down there. I had to wait until James’s last visit before I took action with another professional.

Had bedbugs. Appointment was arranged quickly with Pestcure and James came for 3 treatments to get rid of our itchy friends.Was always easy to arrange the next step and James was always flexible and also let me know exactly when he was likely to arrive. James was always extremely pleasant and informative.Most importantly, the difference has been great and it’s been a fortnight (before the 3rd treatment) since we last saw a bedbug.

I can honestly say that pestcure is one of the best companies I have dealt with. My horses stable was plagued with rats and I was at my wits end! James knows his stuff 100% and I am so grateful that my horses food is no longer being eaten by rodents. Thank you so much Pestcure!

I would highly recommend Pest Cure. James provided excellent service and advice. He was very pragmatic and reassuring. The costs to deal with a mouse issue were very reasonable. The follow up was excellent and he went above and beyond to prevent further incursions by sealing up holes and grates. Overall, excellent, pleasant and professional service.

Highly recommend this company. James was so helpful and invested so much time with us to sort our problem. James’s was always on the other end of the phone to provide support and information and really cares about his clients to get the problem solved. Just want to say thank you to James as he helped me through a very challenging time!

Fantastic experience, James is v knowledgeable and has all the lot needed to remove any issues. Thinks about the client and is reasonably priced unlike other big big competitors who I feel don't have the same skill set. Would definitely re use although I'm hoping I won't need to!So my original review above was last year's issue, this year I had a larger rodent problem, called out James and yet again he's resolved the issue.Issues arose due to rodents living under an outbuilding. James' initial reaction was that it was a drainage issue. He was so thorough, put 2 x cameras down below the outbuilding, removed the decking himself and refused to leave the issue until it was resolved. He came out for 5 visits and after activity seen on camera for over 5 weeks, I've now been 11 days without an issue. This chap is the best in the business full stop, he's fitted drain valves (to stop the rat issue) and persistent rodent bait to eliminate the issue. If the issue comes back I know who to call, but I am at ease now because he has solved the source of the problem and has guided me on how to prevent it in the future. Absolutely brilliant experience and 5 stars really doesn't do his service justice.

James is an extremely professional and kind individual who explains what the problem is and gives his honest opinion. He follows up with good solutions and walks you through the how, what and why. Furthermore, he's helpful throughout the process and is happy to take any further questions or concerns. We used his services for rodent issues and the situation has been improving. Obviously some of it is down to construction issues, but he's more than willing to make you understand the underlying reasons as well. Would highly recommend his service.
