There are a range of different types of flies which are known to cause disturbances and spread their diseases within homes, offices, warehouses and pets.
Flies can detect food sources up to 800 metres away and, as a result, they will land on rubbish, left over food and animal faeces, tracing back onto your food.
Flies also defecate every four to five minutes on average and spread disease such as typhoid, tuberculosis, cholera and dysentery.
It's always best to call a professional to identify your infestation, but here are some tell-tale signs of particular species:
Mosquitoes are found in a variety of habitats and are normally located within floodwater, ditches, woodland pools, bodies of water found in backyards including swimming pools, ponds and bird baths, plus various other locations.
In Australia there has been an increase in problems with mosquitoes, causing deaths annually (worldwide).
Mosquito bites are extremely irritating, and attacks occur mostly during the hot and wet summer months. They only have one pair of wings, covered with tiny scales. Full grown mosquitoes vary in size from 3mm to 30mm.
Mosquitoes are attracted to people due to a combination of the following:
Bees are found on plants, in trees, wall cavities, compost bins and other areas with cavities. They are most active during the day. Bees have actually been observed to sleep in groups during the night.
European wasp backs are yellow, with black stripes and dots on the side of the abdomen. They are more aggressive and tend to nest in cavities, ceilings, walls, trees, compost bins or even in the ground. Unlike bees, wasps are able to sting multiple times. Wasps are active at any time of the day, with some species only active before the sun rises. Wasps are more widespread, found almost everywhere. They can be found in soil, on the ground, inside fruit, in their mud or paper nests, and around the home.
Being stung by a wasp or bee is a painful experience and can be life threatening to anyone who may be allergic to stings. Their stings produce histamine in humans and can cause anaphylaxis, increasing the risk of swelling in airways, difficulty in breathing and a drop in blood pressure. It is best to keep away from bee or wasp nests, ensure you keep children away, keeping windows and doors securely closed. Sweets and sticky foods should be stored appropriately. If you discover a bee or wasp nest it may be tempting to remove it yourself, however, without having the experience in terminating these nests, it's best to hire one of our professional technicians who can do this without harming anyone.
