Pests can be a nuisance in a household and it becomes pertinent to deal with them in a professional manner. This can be difficult without the help of a professional pest service as these issues can increase rapidly. One type of pest that cause the most concern are bathroom flies as this is a place one does not wish to see pests. This article will highlight how one can get rid of bathroom flies with ease.
Identifying Problem Areas
This is the first step towards alleviating a problem that bugs many homeowners. The goal is to find the area which is causing the most concern and becoming the breeding ground for these pests. The areas can be easily identifiable by looking at all of the drains within the bathroom setting. Most bathroom flies will look to accumulate and breed in these areas as they are perfect for hiding. Standing water will always attract bathroom flies and is one of the reasons they prefer this room over others in the house.
Drying the Problem Areas
As bathroom flies are known to be attracted to standing water and any other similar water source, it is important to begin the eradication process. This process can only begin by finding the problem areas as suggested above and then ‘drying’ them. This drying process helps initiate the removal of the flies as they look to grow as a group. If the standing water is eliminated, the underlying source for the bathroom flies is ultimately eliminated. This is important as most flies will look to start moving away and one will not have to ‘kill’ them. It is a repellent in a way and should be considered prior to other options.
Blocking Problem Areas
Once the problem areas (i.e., drains) are dried up, it is time to start blocking the areas of concern. Taking a piece of tape and putting it over the drains is a good initial step. It will ensure the flies do not come back when the standing water is not dried up anymore. As one will be using the bathroom, potential for water is always there for the flies to become attracted to. It is imperative to ensure these areas are efficiently blocked up in order to eradicate flies that might swarm on over.
Not only will the tape help block other flies from coming in, it will take care of the ones that are hiding in the drain. It is a one-step process to ensure all of the flies are removed.
Constant Checking of Blocking
As the tape is used as a means of ensuring the flies are being caught, it is pertinent to keep checking back on its condition. If the flies are starting to get caught onto the tape, this is a sign of one doing the right thing. If not, it might be time to start up the process again.
It is to be remembered that these options are not a professional approach for handling these issues. Bathroom flies can spread quickly and it can require a more professional and trained eye to produce methods that can remove them from the vicinity. If the initial stages do not work, it is best to leave the pest removal to an individual with experience in the field.
