Vermicure pest controllers in front of branded van

Most of us have heard of house flies, but how often do you see a cluster fly? The truth is, not often, but when you do, you’ll notice, because these small but mighty critters fly in swarms of thousands.

The common cluster fly (Polleniarudis) is a primarily rural pest that has an unusual life cycle. Female cluster flies lay eggs in earthworm burrows, and the larvae eat the worms. Once they emerge, the adult flies eat flower nectar, tree sap, fruit and other organic material.

When the weather gets cold, cluster flies will move indoors and like to live in roof spaces or in roofs, which is why they’re often known as attic flies. Just 8-10mm in size, they have distinctive golden hairs on their bodies and often swarm in large numbers, especially when trying to enter or leave through windows, which is how they became known as cluster flies.

Unlike other insects, like carpet moths, fleas, carpet beetles or bed bugs, cluster flies don’t pose a major danger to humans and aren’t prone to causing structural damage. However, as is the case with many pests, they can contaminate food and are a nuisance, especially as they tend to move in large numbers.

Vermicure provides effective cluster fly treatment to homes and businesses across Leeds, Wakefield and Doncaster. Contact us today to find out more about our services and how we can eradicate cluster flies for you.

Our Cluster Fly Removal Process

1

Contact

When you first get in touch, we’ll discuss your pest problem and see if we think the issue is cluster flies or a different pest based on what signs you’ve seen. We’ll also arrange a site visit to get to the bottom of the issue and provide an accurate quote.

2

Treatment

Our professional pest control experts will attend your property to remove all the flies. Treatment usually takes 3 visits, but we will inform you if we need to attend your property additional times if your infestation is slightly larger than average.

3

Aftercare

Following each visit, we will provide a report on the work we’ve done controlling cluster flies on your property and how much more treatment will be needed before the issue is resolved. We guarantee 100% success on all projects, so we will work tirelessly to ensure the flies are completely gone before completing any job.

I couldn't be more pleased with the service I received from Vermicure Pest Control for dealing with a bees nest. They were incredibly prompt and exceptionally courteous. Most importantly, they did an outstanding job in safely removing the nest without causing any harm to the bees. I highly recommend Vermicure for anyone in need of efficient and professional pest control services.

Fantastic service. Keiran is the rat man for sure. Very thorough, professional and knowledgeable. I have used other similar services in the past but he is the best. He sorted out a long standing Rat issue at our property. I wouldn’t hesitate to book him again. Thank you Keiran.

DIY VS Professional Cluster Fly Treatment: Which Is Best?

Go into any DIY store or search online, and you’ll find hundreds of insect spray products that promise to get rid of cluster flies quickly and easily. While these cluster fly killer products might seem great, they’re not all they’re hyped up to be.

Unfortunately, smoke bombs and other home cluster fly treatments won’t effectively deal with the problem. Even the best cluster fly products for sale to homeowners won’t get rid of a large infestation of cluster flies, and many can leave residual insecticide behind that’s toxic to humans, pets and local wildlife.

Long-term residual insecticide can be a serious health concern, particularly for families with young children or people with compromised immune systems. These chemicals can be bad for your wellbeing, but won’t be strong enough to kill cluster flies or stop them from coming back.

The best way to remove cluster flies for good is to work with experts like us. We have access to professional-grade insecticides that are only available with an RSPH level 2 licence and the skills to use them properly. Our team can spray your property with a focus on your roof space and other areas where cluster flies congregate or use ledges as alighting surfaces. With our safe and effective cluster fly control service, you can rest assured that the issue will be dealt with properly.

So, if you’re looking to eliminate and prevent cluster flies from returning, then you need Vermicure. Our professional pest controllers operate throughout Leeds, Wakefield and the surrounding areas, and we can protect your property against cluster flies and other flying insects. So, if you find cluster flies, call 07951 157254 for a quote today.
