Flies Maggots Eggs Pupae

Flies Maggots Eggs Pupae

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:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Food poisoning
  • Vomiting
  • Salmonella
  • Staphylococcus

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.

Maggots are flies in their larval stage and take approximately 5 days to develop into flies. If you are spotting maggots around your home or work place it is important to get these investigated so that the breeding ground can be identified. Maggots are a pale white colour and look like a tiny worm. If maggots or flies are present in your home or workplace call the professionals at SWAT Pest Control to deal with the issue.

Environmental Management

Quick and effective ways to help reduce your fly population

  • have fly screens fitted to windows and doors to make entry difficult
  • keep all rubbish bins tightly sealed and secure so flies cannot enter and use it as a breeding ground
  • keep food sealed and contained
  • clean up any spills, food scraps or crumbs on counter tops or floors
  • situate composed bins away from buildings
  • remove pet faeces from your lawn or around your property daily!  See the pic below to remind you why. 
  • remove lawn clipping from property as they are a warm, moist breeding ground 
Where have the flies been just before they landed on you or your kitchen bench?
