Flies are considered to be one of the most evolved insects known to man. They rely heavily on sight for survival and are generally extremely sensitive to movement.

Most fly species are more of a nuisance than a pest, however flies such as mosquitoes, which feed on blood, can also cause painful skin reactions when they bite and can also transmit infectious diseases.


There are an estimated 240,000 species of fly, with the common house fly regarded as being one of the most widely distributed animals on the planet. Listed below are the most commonly encountered species of fly that affect our homes, offices and factories:

  • Bluebottles
  • Cluster Flies
  • Filter Flies
  • Fruit Flies
  • House Flies
  • Mosquitoes
