Pest Control Port Elizabeth – Flies

Out of the hustle and bustle lies one of South Africa’s largest and most beautiful cities, Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape. Port Elizabeth is famed for its long white sandy beaches, vehicle manufacturing, and proximity to world-renown game parks like Addo Elephant National Park. However, as most cities, there are some problems with pest control Port Elizabeth.

Pest control Port Elizabeth can be a problem

As with any developed urban, residential and commercial regions, Port Elizabeth can also be faced with pest control issues such as flies. Flies are attracted to decaying organic matter, animal manure, garbage, and sugar substances depending on the species.  As the outer lying areas of Port Elizabeth are animal rich, there is a natural propensity for flies to congregate.

Not only are animal and farm environments attracting flies, but every home will have to deal with the onslaught of flies especially in the Summer heat as the swarm any signs of rotting food in which to lay their eggs and use as a breeding ground.

Pest flies can carry diseases and infect humans

Carriers of deadly diseases, this is one pest you don’t want to be playing games with. Due to the fly’s natural habitat of filthy places, it is a natural consequence that they will pick up the infectious qualities of what they have come into contact with. They will then pass this into our living environments by cross contact.

Once flies have landed on our food substances, they regurgitate an internal digestive liquid, which assists them in consuming the particle again. Through this process the spread of the germs and diseases they are carrying from exposure and ingestion are transferred to humans.

Flies are responsible for the spread of over 65 different diseases, some of which include:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Mycoses
  • Cholera
  • Typhoid
  • Leprosy

There are many fly repellant and traps available on the market, which are the likes of insecticides, sticky poison traps, electrocution products and typical fly swatters. Although these methods can do much to alleviate short-term nuisance, it would have far greater and lasting impact to consider the services of a professional. Kempston Cleaning services for Port Elizabeth helps businesses get rid of their pest problems with methods that are long lasting, humane and efficient.
