It is natural that when people see flies around, they will consider the area unclean. Flies are disease-carrying pests because they find their food from animal and human waste, carcasses and trash. Aside from being a nuisance, some species of flies bite and pose serious health risks. For example, house flies are more often associated with human habitation. Delicious food that is infested with flies will ruin your appetite for consumption. Flies are known as spreaders of stomach disease bacteria such as:
- Shygella disentriae (Dysentery)
- Escheria coli (Muntaber)
- Salmonella thypiosa (Typhus).
Flies spread disease due to their culture and eating habits. Bacteria originating from where flies usually eat will be trapped in their mouths and their foot pads which eventually spread to the place where they will land. Now imagine if a fly landed on the food you would eat.
However, there are simple ways that you can do to identify signs of fly infestation and take simple precautions will be very important because fly pests can potentially turn into serious infestations if left unchecked.
