House Flies

House flies are so named for being the most common flying pest found in the home. Not only a nuisance, house flies also spread disease. To discourage their presence, keep garbage sealed and dispose of food and animal waste promptly. Control measures include window screens and traps, but good sanitation practices should be the first step.
