Serving Santa Fe | Taos | Albuquerque | Las Cruces
Flies, generally considered a nuisance, exist in all regions of the United States. There are more than 240,000 different species of flies in the world. Approximately one third of them, including mosquitoes and gnats, can be found in the United States.
Disease Carrying Flies
A true fly has only one set of wings. All flies are known disease carriers, many of which can be transmitted to humans. Flies typically breed in garbage, decaying flesh, excrement of animals and humans, sewers, compost piles, and any other place where matter is decaying. This enables them to pick up various kinds of diseases which can be transmitted to people by biting or by landing on food, where they can add bacteria and viruses to the food. Since flies are able to transmit disease so easily, it is necessary to seek insect control quickly. The serious diseases that they can carry include malaria, yellow fever, encephalitis, dengue fever, and more.
Common Flies in New Mexico
The most common flies are the fruit fly, the house fly (which have four stripes on their abdomen), the cluster fly (which is dark gray in color), and the garbage fly (which has a metallic color that is either green or blue). Another common type of fly, the stable fly, typically exists around livestock. The horse fly and a few other varieties of flies actually have mouth parts and can bite humans. Most flies, however, have a sponge-like mouth and can only drink up their food.

Flies and the Environment
One benefit of flies is that they do help keep down the population of other pests. They also help to break down carcasses and other decaying matter faster by preparing it to reenter the ground. Properly controlling flies includes not only killing the adults, but also destroying their eggs and larvae.
Nevertheless, flies in abundance are more than a nuisance if they’ve invaded your property. New Mexico Pest Control is proud to offer fly control and removal services—call us today to learn more.
