Fly Control Brisbane

Control Pest Management can help with any Fly control issue you might have. The common housefly is found all over Australia spreading disease-causing germs by crawling on food and other surfaces. Adult flies are attracted to exposed food, rubbish bins and manure areas to feed and breed.

Brisbane Fly Control & Treatment

High numbers of flies will leave tell tale droppings on flat surfaces such as walls and ceilings, especially in the summer months. 

Adult flies feed on decaying matter and most human foods and carry diseases such as Salmonella and Cholera to your kitchen from manure and rubbish. Fly maggots live in  moist, warm organic matter such as food waste and manure.

Control Pest Management use commercial quality insecticide sprays, delivered either as an aerosol or a pump-pack to effectively manage your housefly infestations. Surface sprays are used to treat interior and exterior perimeter surfaces providing protection for several months.

When the flies land on the surface it picks up the insecticide and dies. After your professional treatment we can then advise on maintaining the hygiene protocols necessary to provide preventive barriers to any future infestations.

Health Risks From Flies

Flies pose a significant health risk to humans, pets and livestock and can infest your business and spread diseases like Salmonella and E. coli. A few species may even bite humans and animals.

In Australia due to the heat and warmer climate it tends to speed up the life cycle allowing it to go from an egg to an adult fly in under 10 days. So, if a small fly problem is left uncontrolled, it has the potential to turn into a serious infestation.


How do you get rid of flies in Australia?

House flies are a common pest as they carry various diseases and infections. Here are some simple methods of getting rid of flies:

  1. Clean up and break the cycle – flies reproduce rapidly, and the key is to break the life cycle. Make your home less appealing to flies by quickly removing any pet faeces and cover any rubbish bags and bins. Regularly clean food areas such as kitchen countertops and dining table.
  2. Deter flies or use fly removal methods – Fly sprays and natural remedies such as lemongrass oil, cloves and mint leaves are commonly used. Another method is fly traps such as sticky strips from the supermarket.
  3. Call us, the professionals – We will use specific treatments to remove flies at every stage of their lifecycle. Sometimes preventative measures such as fly sprays and natural remedies do not work and require more serious identification and appropriate treatment.
Why do I have so many flies in my backyard?

If you are finding a lot of flies in your backyard, there is probably a breeding site either on your property or your neighbour’s property. Breeding sites can be found around the rubbish bins, pet faeces, dog kennels and stagnate water.

Contact us to discuss your problem and see what solutions we can offer.

Is there a fly plague in Sydney?

Sydney is well known for their fly plague. This is mostly attributed to the heavy rain showers and warm weather. The two species bush flies and house flies, both enjoy rotting organised matter including compost heaps, dog droppings and lawn clippings to breed.
