Cluster flies often resemble house fly but are a real nuisance to homes, office buildings and hotels as these properties have wooded areas around. These are big, slow moving insects that show up during the winters. Winters are chilly so we often tend to shut the windows and doors tightly to feel warm, however, if there are cluster flies in your home, it could be quite annoying as they literally fly around you making an irritating buzzing sound. These are often spotted on the sunny side of a cool winter day in your home, mostly along the window sliding as the sun rises and warming up the window panes.
Cluster flies normally reside in woods and are outdoor insects. But during winter and autumn, these flies move indoors and hibernate in attics, buildings or isolated areas of your home. They hide themselves in places that are not easily noticeable, like the cracks or holes near windows or on ceilings, in the gaps of walls, in basements, lofts or places that are not easily accessible. As the weather gets warmer, they start flying around and it is definitely a scary and annoying experience to see infestation of cluster flies in your home. Cluster flies make colonies in buildings and homes that are nearby woods or in the countryside. Moreover if your house has a backyard or garden, where earthworms breed, cluster flies are normally seen there as these insects feed on earthworms when their eggs hatch. Parks, cemeteries, pastures and fields are a few common places where you can see cluster flies in thousands.
Cluster flies do not pose any health risks to humans, nor do they transmit any kind of diseases. Also, cluster flies do not infest due to poor hygiene nor do they lay their eggs on the food items. Cluster flies feed on earthworms instead. Now why should cluster flies pose a problem to humans? These insects are not in hundreds, but in thousands. Once the weather gets cold, that is during winters, these infest homes that are near woods or in isolated places of the buildings. It is difficult for humans to cope with such a huge colony hence it is necessary to get rid of these before the infestation spins out of control. It is quite frightening to see these insects in a very large number.
It is always necessary to seek professional service to get rid of cluster flies infestation from your home. Though you can control by using domestic aerosol spray or other effective insect spray and you can also use a vacuum cleaner to vacuum the dead and slow moving cluster flies, but what about those that are hibernating in hard to reach places? Thus, a professional pest control service is quite apt to get rid of any and all types of insect infestations from any and every corner of your home. Hence, make the right move before it is too late. Cluster flies infestations ate not just frightening, but can give you a very bad experience too.
