We have around 1,850 known species of flying insects in New Zealand, some of which are very well known to us, i.e. houseflies, mosquitoes, sand flies, horse flies, blowflies, midges and many more.
As we are all too aware, flies are often landing on surfaces in our home and workplace. Unfortunately, as they do so they are depositing thousands of bacteria which can lead to many diseases and illnesses:
- Food poisoning
Spotting a one-off fly in your premises usually isn’t much cause for alarm, however, numbers increase very rapidly and it is wise to take precautionary action to prevent these unwanted visitors breeding to infestation levels.
