Below are a few of the more common:


Also known as blow flies. They breed on dead and decaying matter. Removing the dead rodent/bird will resolve the problem. If this is not possible, please call Green Care for assistance.

Cluster Flies

Also known as field flies. They do not usually cause any problems during summer and early autumn, but as the weather gets colder they search for protection against the elements. They tend to return year after year to the same properties. If the environment becomes warmer they can emerge in large numbers and tend to cluster around windows causing concern. Control is achievable, eradication is not always possible.

Fruit Flies

Usually found around over-ripe fruit, rotted vegetables, leftover beer and soft drinks. Hygiene is paramount in controlling these flies.

House Flies

These flies love your rubbish, and any food they can manage to land on. They spit saliva on to the food, which liquefies it, and then they suck it up. (Nice !)

Sewer Flies/Drain Flies

Usually found around sinks and drains. They feed on the gelatinous material that line drains. Removing the breeding sites and cleaning the affected areas is the key to eradication.

All of the above flies can be eradicated or controlled using a variety of different methods.

Please either call user request a call back for advice.
