Flies can be a nuisance when buzzing around the home, particularly if in large numbers. However, some species of fly also pose a health risk.

In particular, house flies transmit a wide range of diseases. Flies can get into homes through small holes in screens, open windows, through cracks and spaces beneath doors and even through the drains. Once inside they can breed rapidly, causing an infestation that can grow quickly.

The problem with flies in your home is that they prefer to eat things such as waste materials, garbage and even rotten meat. When they land they can get contaminants on their feet and if they then land on food or other material that can end up ingested they spread contamination.
