Cluster fly- what is it?

22 May

Flies, blue-bottles, house-flies – all common names, but do you know what a Cluster fly is?

Cluster flies are small flies that love roof spaces and living quarters.  They are found in the autumn months and although they are not disease carriers, it isn’t particularly pleasant to find hundreds in your bedroom.  They particularly like to get into homes through small spaces in the window when the heating is turned on – sash windows are their favourite entrance.

Cluster flies can inhabit roof-spaces in vast numbers – thousands at any one time.  It is fairly simple to eradicate them, but if there are bats in the attic, it is a little more problematic and will restrict the treatment methods.  If you think you have cluster flies and would like to speak to an expert about eradication, please contact us at Abate Pest Management Ltd in Norfolk on 0800 980 9767

Cluster flies are a little larger than house-flies – take a look at the pictures below…
