Houseflies are not uncommon in homes and businesses in Nakuru, Kenya. These pests pose severe health risks to humans, pets, and domesticated animals. They have been associated with spreading at least 65 diseases like Salmonella, typhoid fever, cholera, leprosy, yaws, and tuberculosis. These nasty pests are able to spread disease-causing pathogens because they regurgitate and excrete wherever they rest.
If you ignore a small fly problem, it can potentially grow into a serious infestation within the shortest time. Houseflies reproduce at an astonishing rate! Female houseflies have a gestation period of 24 hours, and they are capable of laying 5-6 batches (each of which contains 75-150 eggs) within three days. Some species can develop from eggs to adults in only seven days!
What Attracts Flies Into Your Home?
These major carriers of diseases can infest nearly all premises, including homes, hotels, hospitals, offices, and schools. They are attracted to two main things, odor and warmth. Flies especially love rotting material and decaying organic waste like feces and rotting meat where they feed and breed.
Houseflies are also attracted to the pleasant smells produced by our bodies, body odors, and other substances like protein residues from recent meals we’ve had. Houseflies are not fussy about what they eat. This means that they are attracted to all types of foods, including pet food, animal feed, human food, and food waste.
