Best Fly Control Services in Phoenix AZ
ID / Biology / Behavior:
Flies are Insecta from the order Diptera – from the Greek “di” (two) and “ptera” (wings) and have been around for about 240 million years. Flies are depicted both in mythology and literature. In the biblical fourth plague of Egypt, Flies represent death and decay. In the traditional Navajo religion, Big Fly is an important spirit being.
Flies are created for aerial movement with short, streamlined bodies. Flies have no teeth or other parts allowing them to eat solid food – only liquids or finely granulated products. Flies proliferate effectively over a short period of time – hence the seemingly inexhaustible “supply.”
There are several types of Flies but two of the most common are: the House Fly from the Latin “Musca Domestica,” usually gray, length less than 4-7.5 mm, with four black stripes on the thorax, covered with small hair that serves as tasters. Also in this category are Lesser House Flies, Red House Flies and Blue House Flies. All are major carriers of diseases including typhoid, tuberculosis, cholera and dysentery (pathogens are collected on their legs and mouths as they feed on feces, trash and other decayed [or decaying] material). Their average lifespan is less than 1 month.
And the Drain Fly, in Latin “Family Psychodidae,” about 1.5 to 5 mm in length, light gray or tan body with lighter-colored wings, covered with long hair which gives this fly a distinctly “fuzzy” appearance. The Drain Fly poses problems if their population overgrows. Their lifespan is usually something like 2 weeks, with newly emerging adults to rapidly replace the dying.
House Flies like thin objects or corners and edges of floors, walls and ceilings during daylight hours. At night, they usually rest near sources of food, 5-15 feet up from the ground. House Flies like a variety of food sources: human, animal food and carcasses, garbage and excrement.
Drain Flies can be found normally on bathroom, kitchen or basement walls. Nocturnal, they feed on organic matter and sewage.
Prevention Tips / Treatment:
The first step toward control of House Flies is identifying the species. Different species necessitate differing control methods. Determine their breeding site – this may be something simple but could also be something not obvious to the untrained eye.
Drain Flies are controlled by locating and removing their breeding site. This calls for removing the material causing a drain stoppage not simply dumping in a liquid drain cleaner.
Our WATTS Pest Prevention specialists determine the most effective means of treatment to resolve your Flies dilemma.

We utilize an Integrated Pest Management (I.P.M.) approach for Arizona Pest Control. This comprehensive approach includes:
- Inspection - Service specialists conduct a thorough inspection of the property.
- Identification - Pests are identified for appropriate control measures.
- Environmental Modification - All possible environmental modification solutions are considered prior to any material application.
- Material Application - When a thorough inspection has been performed, a proper identification has been assessed, and all environmental modification options have been made (if applicable), a material application will be performed in a judicious, environmentally responsible manner.
A successful Arizona Pest Control program requires more than simply relying solely on your recurring Pest Control services. Understanding that recurring Pest Control plays a critical role, supplemental Pest Control methods include the client’s cooperation in properly preparing and maintaining the property being serviced. Properly preparing and maintaining a Pest-free environment includes:
Interior Considerations: Seal holes in walls and around pipes, cables and wires. Seal cracks and crevices with paint or caulk. Seal other holes ¼” or larger. Fix leaky plumbing. Correct excessive moisture problems. Remove clutter. Organize storage rooms/closets. Store Pest nesting material (fabric, paper, rug scraps, plastic, and insulation) in Pest-proof containers. Clean and screen drains. Cap drains in basement floors. Store human and pet food in Pest-proof containers. Maintain excellent sanitation conditions. Dispose of Pest- or Rodent-infested goods. Remove fecal matter (rodents, bats, birds). Sanitize animal fecal matter after removal. Investigate secondary Pest potential from primary Pest infestation (e.g. fleas, mites).
Exterior Considerations: Cut vegetation back from building walls at least 18″. Remove ivy and other vines from sides of buildings or nearby trees. Trim back tree branches that touch or rub against building. Seal and/or repair air conditioning unit(s). Seal holes in walls and around pipes, cables, and wires. Seal other holes ¼” or larger. Repair damaged roof. Move compost into Pest-proof containers. Fix leaking irrigation. Eliminate standing water. Maintain properly functioning drains. Maintain order in storage shed(s) and/or garage(s). Store Pest nesting material (fabric, paper, rug scraps, plastic, and insulation) in Pest-proof containers.
