As there are so many species and many of them are almost identical its often a lot more technical then just getting your DIY fly spray. Here at PGH we are specialists in effective control for all species of fly in all types of properties. Carrying out a pesticide treatment to kill flies in most cases is not enough, we specialise in diagnosing why you have them in the first place and how to prevent or manage the flies long term.
One of the more common fly issues we get calls for is cluster fly – also known as attic fly.

These are often quite difficult to treat because they will move into hard to reach places. It is vital that cluster fly issues are eradicated because they can also lead to other infestations such as carpet beetle.
Self treating cluster fly is not recommended. Simply spraying is not always effective and sometimes they co-exist with bats in roof and loft spaces. Bats are protected and so it is always better to have your property surveyed for the best course of treatment that will eradicate the flies bit not harm these creatures.
