Swatting Flies Is An Activity For The Ball Park, Not For Your Home
Fly infestations cannot be controlled with a fly swatter, no matter how good your swing may be. You need the professional team at Select Exterminating for the winning game plan to control the problem.
Most flies, such as house flies, horse flies, gnats, midges, and mosquitoes, are considered common household pests. They are characterized by having two wings while most other insect groups have four wings. In nature, flies serve an important function. In your homes or businesses, they do not.
They are usually considered nuisances, but they may carry disease. More recently in our area, mosquitoes have become a serious health problem, especially in environments where there is standing water. At Select Exterminating, we have a variety of “green” treatments to handle the situation and offer a free estimate to solve your problem.

What is the difference betweens flies and gnats?
If the insect is brown with red eyes, it is most likely a fruit fly. Fruit flies breed in fresh fruit and garbage. If the insect is tiny and black with long wings and legs, it is likely a gnat that lives in the wet soil of potted plants. We can help get rid of both!
Are flies dangerous?
Yes, flies are capable of contaminating food as well as transferring more than 100 different pathogens (this includes malaria, salmonella and even tuberculosis).
What is the best way to prevent flies in my home?
Be sure to keep doors shut to keep out all insects, cover fruit, and don’t leave open garbage containers around.
