FLY PEST CONTROL
The First step in House fly control is exclusion and sanitation. After these measures, we can use insecticides that come in residual forms, aerosols, fogging materials, and baiting forms. Flytraps have long been a favorite.
There are many forms of fly traps, from disposable fly traps to electronic fly light traps with replaceable light bulbs and glue boards. Getting rid of house flies usually requires a mix of indoor and outdoor treatment measures.
This is especially true if you have pets that defecate in the yard, compost piles, small bodies of water close by, live near a farm, or have unclean trash bins or dumpsters nearby. While eliminating all houseflies on your property is not realistic, you can control the fly population to a manageable level.

INSECTICIDE SPRAY APPLICATION
For a small outdoor population, you can choose to spray the exterior of your structure with a residual concentrated insecticide. This method should also be used in conjunction with one of the methods below if you have a medium to high population.
Baiting for house flies is usually done when the source of the flies cannot be completely controlled such as on a farm, kennel area, near dumpsters or near composting areas. Fly baits typically have a food attractant and a pheromone attractant to entice the flies along with an insecticide to eliminate flies once the bait has been eaten.
Fill the bait station as directed on the fly bait product label. The station can be mounted on fences, walls or other surfaces near dumpsters, behind restaurants or in other places where flies are a problem. The FBS Fly Bait Station has a locking lid that only allows flies to enter, protecting the bait from the elements, children and pets (Keep out of reach of livestock). The station easily mounts to all types of surfaces using zip ties, screws or liquid nails. Check the station every 1-3 days and refill as necessary to keep the fly population down.
