About Flies

Flies can regularly be found in homes and businesses across the UK. Some species are more common than others and are attracted to different environments suited to their natural habits and lifecycle. Knowing about the size, habits, seasonality and lifecycle of different fly species, can help to identify the most effective prevention and fly control methods. On average, the adult housefly will live for around 30 days. They go through a complete four-stage cycle that consists of egg, larva, pupa and adult stages.

Flies Life Cycle

The House Fly has four distinct stages to its life cycle. The egg hatches to produce larvae, the larvae or maggots then pupate and a fully fledged adult then appears. The female House Fly can lay up to 500 eggs over a 3-4 day period. The eggs are white and usually less than half an inch in size. The larvae or maggots emerge less than 24 hours later and begin to eat immediately. Preferring a warm and moist environment in which to grow, the maggots will stay there for 8-10 days then move to a drier area to pupate. The larvae will encase itself in a red-brown skin for 3-6 days during which time it will develop into an adult fly. Once hatched from its pupal stage, the House Fly has a life span of between 15 and 30 days. Two days into that span the female will start to lay eggs and she’ll continue to do so until her death.

Flies Treatment

Infestations of flies are usually treated with fly killers (ie; zappers or light traps), insecticidal sprays and/or smoke generators. Fly-proofing can also be carried out by using screens to block windows and doors. When treating fly infestations, we endeavour to use the most environmentally friendly products.
