CLUSTER FLY

Similar in appearance to a common house fly, cluster flies are about the same size. Cluster flies are native to North America and consists of a several species. However there are some characteristics that differentiate the cluster fly: they are slower fliers than house fly, with wings completely overlapping when at rest. Cluster flies reproduce outside of structures in the warm season, usually May - June period. Their larva a.k.a. maggots feed on earthworms before pupate period (cocoon stage) and hatch from cocoons into adult flies. In the late Summer and early spring, cluster flies will be looking to enter a building structures. Usually through cracks in the doors and windows. Pay extra attention to a warmer southern exposure side where cluster flies will emerge from.  

Cluster flies will will emerge from wall voids in the Winter and Springs on a sunny warm days and will try to leave dwelling through windows, hitting the glass. If present in large numbers it may become disturbing to human occupants of the building. Cluster flies can inhabit almost any structure.

So how do we control and eliminate cluster flies?

Prevention in the case of cluster flies infestation goes a long way. Aside from sealing all possible entries, which sometimes can be impossible, treating your building with insect repellent around doors and windows just before cluster flies will begin their journey into your property. Call us with your location and we will try to get an approximate time of the year applicable to your area. Property owner may apply repellent insecticide himself, given proper safety precautions are taken. Always READ THE LABEL for the insecticide you are using. However using professional pest control exterminator will always produce more effective results. Certain control product are only available to to a licensed technician. If flies are already inside, treatment will consist of treating wall voids in a problem area, where insecticide dust must be applied. It is highly advisable to use a licensed exterminator company for this procedure. Another area of fly habitation is an attic and should be treated with a fogger insecticide.

Common Name: Fly - Cluster fly
Latin Name: Pollenia rudis
Common Family Name: Blow flies
Latin Family Name: Calliphoridae

Biology: The blow flies are important de-composers of dead animals and other rotting organic material, such as decomposing plant material. They are the first insects to arrive at a newly deceased carcass and their larvae are frequently used in forensic science to determine facts about a crime scene. The maggots also have been used in “maggot therapy”, to eat dead tissue off the skin of victims of burns or wounds. Females may lay several hundred eggs on an appropriate larval food source, with development to the adult stage being completed in about one week in hot, humid conditions. The larvae leave the food and may squirm long distances to find a protected crevice in which to pupate, often falling through ceilings or across floors because of this.

Identification: In general the blow flies are shiny and metallic, with species ranging from green to bright blue to a coppery orange to almost black, and species names are assigned accordingly. The adults are from 10 to 15 mm long and robust, with compact, wide bodies. They are loud, buzzing fliers and are strongly attracted to lights. The larvae are the typical legless, white maggots of the filth flies, with the head end noticeably tapering to a point and the posterior much wider and flattened from behind. Identification to species is done based on the specific patterns of the lines of the spiracles, found at the posterior end.

Characteristics Important in Control: Control of the source of the larvae is critical, involving cleanup and proper maintenance of garbage containers, removal of dead rodents or birds, and elimination of piles of yard debris or animal feces outdoors. Adult entry to structures is prevented by good building maintenance. The use of UV light traps is highly effective in trapping adults, along with bait granules or bait strips, and possible use of residual insecticides on surfaces the adults frequent.

Common Name: Fly - Drain fly or Moth Fly
Latin Name: Psychoda
Common Family Name: Moth flies
Latin Family Name: Psychodidae

Other Names: Drain flies, sand flies

Origin: A number of native species of flies in this family occur throughout North America.

Biology: The genus Phlebotomus contains some species which are blood feeders, and they are vectors of several important diseases including Leishmaniasis. The larvae of this family of flies feed on organic material they find in damp situations, including on soils or leaf litter. In structures this may be a sludge buildup in floor or sink drains, giving the flies one of their common names. They may also occur in large numbers in septic systems, sewage treatment plants, or dirty garbage containers. The eggs are laid in masses of from 30 to 100 eggs, on the surface of the material in which the larvae will feed. The larvae feed within the sludge, breathing through siphon tubes on their body that project out of the material. The time from egg to adult fly may be from 8 to 24 days, depending on the temperature. Adult flies are attracted to lights.

Identification: The name “moth fly” is given due to their similarity to a small, gray moth. The adult flies are very small, and covered with short, gray hairs on their wings and entire body. The wings are oval and held flat over the abdomen, at a slight outward, or “delta”, angle.

Characteristics Important in Control: Elimination of larval breeding sources is critical, by removing sludge buildup in floor or sink drains and controlling moisture accumulation in low spots on floors or exterior areas. Regular washing of dumpsters will remove spilled materials.

Common Name: Fly - Deer flies
Latin Name: Chrysops
Common Family Name: Horse and Deer Flies
Latin Family Name: Tabanidae

Other Names: Gad flies, green heads

Origin: A number of species are native to North America.

Biology: Deer fly females are blood feeders, while the males feed on plant juices. The mouthparts of the female are scissors-like, and they slash open the skin, cause the blood to flow with their saliva, and lap up the blood. These flies are extremely annoying and can be serious threats to the health of livestock or horses when they feed in large numbers. Around people they may swarm to the neck and head areas and the arms, flying around the person noisily until they finally land to feed. In North America they have been incriminated as potential vectors of tularemia and anthrax.

Identification: Deer flies are about twice the size of House flies, and are usually light brown to orange-yellow in color, with striped bodies and darker markings on the wings. Their wings are held flat and outward (delta position) when at rest. The antennae differ from many other large flies in that they are stout and elongate, composed of 3 enlarged segments followed by several small ones. They are pointed at the end, and differ from Horse Flies in that the third segment does not have the tooth-like projection at its base.

Characteristics Important in Control: Control is difficult to achieve since the larvae can live in so many varied, inaccessible sites. These flies rarely enter structures but can be serious pests outdoors, where they react to movement to signal a potential food source. Repellents can be somewhat effective, and wearing long sleeves and long pants when in areas likely to have these flies will reduce their ability to bite.

Common Name: Fly - Horse fly
Latin Name: Tabanus
Common Family Name: Horse and Deer flies
Latin Family Name: Tabanidae

Other Names: Green heads, gad flies

Origin: A number of native species occur in North America, particularly in the more humid states where the moist conditions the larvae need are available year-round.

Biology: Horse fly females are blood feeders, while the males feed on plant juices. The mouthparts of the female are scissors-like, and they slash open the skin, cause the blood to flow with their saliva, and lap up the blood. They are not incriminated as vectors of any specific diseases in North America, but are extremely annoying, have painful bites, and can be serious threats to the health of livestock or horses when they feed in large numbers. The larvae of many species are predators, living in moist soils, under wet leaf litter, or even in running water. They may live in the mud at the bottom of ponds or ditches, feeding on other organisms that come nearby.

Identification: Horseflies are some of the largest flies in North America, with adults of some species growing to over an inch long, and with a wingspan of 2.5 inches. They are heavy bodied with the abdomen tapering to a narrow end, and colors range from black to brown, sometimes with stripes or spots on them. Quite often their eyes are rainbow colored with green, pink and reddish hues. The antennae are very distinctive, being stout and elongate, and on horseflies the large third segment has a tooth-like projection at its base.

Characteristics Important in Control: Control is difficult to achieve since the larvae can live in so many varied, inaccessible sites. These flies rarely enter structures but can be serious pests outdoors, where they react to movement to signal a potential food source. Repellents can be somewhat effective, and wearing long sleeves and long pants when in areas likely to have these flies will reduce their ability to bite.

Common Name: Fly - Vinegar fly
Latin Name: Drosophila
Common Family Name: Pomace or Fruit flies
Latin Family Name: Drosophilidae

Other Names: Pomace fly, fruit fly

Origin: Many species of these flies occur throughout the world. The species Drosophila melanogaster is one of the most common in structures, and is used extensively in laboratory studies of genetic characteristics.

Biology: The vinegar or fruit flies can breed in any fermenting organic material, particularly fruit and vegetable juices or damaged fruits and vegetables. They may be drawn to spills of alcohol or soda syrups, to vegetable and fruit displays in markets, and reach an abundance in the late summer and fall in gardens, when fruits and vegetables tend to go unharvested and lay on the ground. Eggs are laid on the food source for the larvae, and hatch within about 1 day. The larval period is less than 1 week and adults emerge from the pupa in only a day or two, with total development time averaging about 8 days. Females can lay about 500 eggs. Adult flies are attracted to lights.

Identification: The common species of Drosophila is a tiny fly, usually only 3 mm long. It has bright red eyes, a tan/orange body color, and distinct rings or stripes around the segments of the abdomen. At rest the wings are held crossed and flat over the abdomen.

Control of a fruit fly: Elimination of the source of the larvae is critical, and emergence of new adult flies will continue until this source is eliminated. Any buildup of organic matter in cracks or floor drains can support larvae, along with unwashed garbage containers, spilled juices, or over-ripe fruits and vegetables. Traps exist specifically for the control of vinegar flies. Applications of residual insecticides to surfaces the adults gather on will be effective in reducing their numbers.

Flies can be a cause for concern in a food service establishment. Not only it's presence is repugnant to customers, there is always a chance for a transmission of a food borne illness. Health departments do not look kindly on restaurants with consistent fly problem. Eliminating conditions conducive to fly infestation go the long way, but sometimes it could be a persistent problem, where using a pest control professional will utilize better results. Through a proper placement of fly insecticides, infestation of flies can be rapidly removed bringing a necessary relief to a business owner.
