NPMA and Fischer Environmental recommends that homeowners follow these tips to help prevent house flies in their own homes:

  • Keep kitchen trash in sealed containers and the receptacles as clean as possible.
  • Dispose of waste regularly and keep away from your home.
  • Be aware of sources of excessive moisture.
  • Keep counters and surfaces clean.
  • Prevent home access by keeping doors, windows and vents closed when possible.
  • Properly screen windows and seal potential entryways, repairing any rips or tears in screens.
  • If you have dogs, horses or other animals near the home, remove feces from the yard and surrounding areas.
  • For an uncontrolled house fly population, contact a licensed pest professional.
