Blow Fly Treatment and Elimination
The blow fly, scientifically known as ‘Calliphoridae’, resembles the common house fly in many ways but it’s slightly bigger in size and most of them tend to have a metallic appearance. Moreover, they have a loud buzz that is easily distinguishable. Things like garbage, spoiled meat, animal feces, compost, as well as any rotting materials can easily attract them to your yard.
Dangers to Consider
Even though blow flies don’t bite humans, they are common carriers of germs and bacteria.
Here are some health complications you need to keep in mind:
- They pose a significant threat to pets, especially if they’re able to lay eggs in a sore or wound that the animal may be carrying.
- The feeding larvae in animal wounds can make the animal very sick and even cause death if the animal isn’t treated properly.
- Blow flies can also contaminate food items and kitchen surfaces, leading to infections. Some common illnesses include eye infections, dysentery, and other illnesses.
