Blue Bottle Fly

Our remedy for blue bottle fly control

First, contact us. Blue bottle fly control is challenging because their larval sites must be located and eliminated for success, and these sites may be some distance from where the adults are a nuisance. Throw trash away in trash cans in plastic bags, and locate trash receptacles as far from the building as possible. Keep doors and windows closed unless they are equipped with a tight-fitting screen. While a dead animal behind a wall or in a crawlspace is not always easily found, if you suspect a dead animal it must be removed to avoid attracting blue bottle flies.

How to Identify a Blue Bottle Fly

Appearance

Shiny, metallic blue or green; 1/4″ to 3/8″.

Habitat

Bottle flies are one of the first insects to reach a dead animal, and the sudden appearance of dozens of them within a building signals a dead rodent, bird or other animal in the wall, ceiling, attic or crawl space. They breed in garbage containers, dumpsters and decaying vegetative matter. They are attracted to buildings by food odors and also warm or cool air currents coming through cracks around doors and windows.

Diet

Like all flies, bottle flies feed on a variety of food materials but prefer fermenting or decaying organic matter.

“Last night was the first night in weeks I had zero flies!”

“I have used a different pest company for years. I was infested with “cluster flies”. My old company said there is nothing they can do as it is just a bad season. I tried Rose Pest Solutions and they were amazing. Howard came out, took a sample fly to determine the way to deal with the situation and then after they analyzed it, they returned the next day. They inspected my home and attics and power sprayed the outside. Last night was the first night in weeks I had zero flies! I will definitely be switching to them. Thank you!”
