Due to their unsavoury habits, flies spread disease such as food poisoning, dysentery, hepatitis, typhoid fever and various internal parasites. Some fly species, such as biting midges and March flies, have piercing and sucking mouthparts and inject saliva which also causes skin irritations.


The most effective form of fly management involves the proper disposal of garbage. This will slowly reduce the fly population by depriving them of breeding sites.
Trapping, surface treatments, adhesive flypaper and electric fly traps which electrocute flies are all effective in reducing fly populations. Wire mesh screening of doors and windows is effective, and ultraviolet electric fly “zappers “are often used particularly in areas where people gather for parties and entertainment, and for commercial premises. There are also several types of chemical management measures that are available.
