The buzzing of the fly it is used in common parlance as a symbol of something annoying. While they don't harm plants directly, like so many other pests, and they don't bite like mosquitoes, these insects can get really boring.

It is not only the annoyance of their fluttering that represents a problem: the house fly lands everywhere, preferring dirt and excrement, and it is certainly an unhygienic presence in the house. Those who raise animals then risk finding an intolerable number around them, not to mention the fact that the insect in the stable compromises the animal's well-being by annoying it and potentially transmitting bacteria.

For these reasons it can be useful limit the presence of flies, intervening in the garden or in the barn to counter them. However, it is better to avoid poisoning the environment with chemical pesticides, which would be a worse remedy than the disease. There natural struggle flies can be done in particular with the capture, below we discover some effective and ecological methods to trap them.

Characteristics of the common fly

House flies often go unnoticed: even when they buzz on us we do not take action to solve the problem of their presence and we passively bear. A wrong attitude, especially if we consider the rapidity in reproducing and the ability to adapt, which make this insect practically omnipresent during the summer.

There common fly or housefly (musca domestica) is from the family of diptera, which also includes other insects sadly known to those who grow fruit plants, such as ceratitis capitata (fruit fly) and Bactrocera oleae (olive fly).

The housefly manages to accomplish several generations a year, considering that in an optimal climate a female can live a month, reaching produce a thousand eggs, we can understand the potential it has in proliferate. The eggs are laid inside decaying organic material (faeces, organic waste, animal remains) and the resulting larva can become full-fledged adult in just 7/10 days.

It feeds on one trunk with which it saliva and sucks food, in this way it is a potential vector of numerous diseases.

How to fight the fly

House flies are insects that are particularly adept at developing a resistance to insecticides, so counteracting them, even using chemical products, is not very productive, as well as expensive and anti-ecological.

In contexts of limited size, such as a house with a garden, a warehouse or a stable, the best method to limit the presence of these dipterans is the mass capture of individuals through attractive traps.

Traps to eliminate common flies

Flies land everywhere, so it's not hard to get them to get close to something. There more rudimentary trap is the very simple fly paper sticky.

By exploiting this principle we can achieve more effective trapping with the Sfera Trap device, a trap chromotropic and bright. It works both day and night and can catch flies and other pesky pests like horseflies at the same time. This solution is ideal for stables.

Another valid method is that of'Food bait, which is particularly suitable for outdoor spaces (terraces, gardens). To carry out this trap the best thing is the use of Tap Trap or Vaso Trap, of which we have already spoken extensively in Orto Da Coltivare, explaining its use in defense of the organic orchard.

The bait suitable for the house fly it is prepared by putting a few heads of sardine (20-30 grams) or other raw fish in half a liter of water.

The Tap Trap can be hanging in the garden, for example to the branches of a tree, while Vaso Trap can lay between the flower pots, even on the balcony. Let us remember to keep the containers monitored, to empty and renew the bait when there are many catches.
