Cluster flies (pollenia rudis F.) are experienced as a real pest, they are in spring and autumn emphatically present on buildings by settling in large numbers with only one purpose and that is overwintering. They move into seams and cracks of the building, cavity walls, eaves, etc. It is common for the flies to invade indoors they do not need much space and thus cause a major fly infestation. At first glance the tether fly looks very much like a chamber fly which is common in Dutch households. The difference between the tangle fly and the chamber fly is that the tangle fly is larger and if you look closely, the tangle fly has golden hairs. In short, if you suffer from these flies contact us quickly for a good and effective control.
A fly infestation can occur in no time because it takes only a few days for the fly egg to grow into an adult. In addition, females lay between 400 – 600 eggs during their lifetime.
The flies can soil the property through their droppings which in turn can cause damage, also sitting on the balcony or leaving the windows and doors open is not an option.
Cluster flies are black colored with a golden glow on their back, the fly is 5 to 8 mm in size. The eggs laid by a cluster fly hatch within 3 days in summer. The larvae parasitize on earthworms, entering the soil with them. They then eat the worms from the inside until they can hatch. Like the fall fly, about 1 – 2 generations occur each year. Most of the nuisance is caused by the large numbers in which they occur.
In spring, the large swarms awaken from dormancy and then become active in and around the building.
Fly infestations are often located in the attic, top floor of an apartment complex, office buildings, listed buildings, etc. Because this is a place where they can develop quietly and sometimes have easy access to cracks and holes or crawl under roof tiles. This is where flies can hibernate in peace. Furthermore, of course, flies can easily enter through windows or doors, provided you have taken proper precautions such as by installing mosquito nets.
Aphid fly control is often impossible to do because there are simply no good and effective remedies available.
