You might not believe it, but the records say that our planet has 120,000 different species of flies. These are ones we are aware of; there can be more of them. The UK has only a few species of these flies. Luckily, you can see a few of them around your home.
Though all UK flies have some common features, some have distinct and unique physical features. If you have a fly infestation at your home and plan to call out pest control in East Grinstead, you should know about the common species of UK flies.
- Bluebottle Fly
They look similar to common house flies but have a unique metallic blue colour with large red eyes. They are fond of warm ambience and hence try to get into your home in search of warmth.
- Autumn Fly
The female autumn flies look similar to the common household flies. However, you can identify their male counterparts with their orange abdomen, which have black stripes too. They want to prepare for winter hibernation, which forces them to enter your home during autumn.
- Cluster Fly
Cluster flies look terrifying with their dark grey-olive thorax covered with golden-brown hairs. Your attic is their most favourite place. They also enter your buildings during colder months to hibernate in a warm ambience.
- Fruit Fly
This species is smaller than the previous ones. Their abdomen has both black and grey colour with light yellow or tan coloured thorax. As the name suggests, your kitchen is their favourite place. Rotten fruits and soured milk are the best places for them to lay eggs.
This is the most common species of flies found all over the country. They have a typical grey colour with a yellow abdomen and grey thorax. Their large red eyes make them look attractive. You can find them anywhere inside your home, office, store or even at outdoor places.
