Where are the flies coming from this time of year?
Falling temperatures and rising humidity - not only do we humans prefer to have a roof over our heads and warmth around us, but so do flies. But how do you find our apartments in winter? It's simple: they are attracted to warmth and winter sunshine. The flies take a break on the heated house facades and gather new strength. If a window is then open, they enter the house.
The fly looks for its breeding ground
A housefly usually only survives 30 days. That is not much? Yes, actually. It's a long time to be annoying and laying eggs in the home office or kitchen, though. And leaving a lot of fly droppings behind. A fly does business almost every time it lands. Also on our food. You should avoid this!
Once the fly is in the house, it will start looking for a suitable breeding ground. There she lays her eggs and overwinters. She prefers attics, basements and shutter boxes. The colder it gets, the more tired the fly gets. Your metabolism shuts down. In this way, she can cleverly extend her life to three months and wake up again from February with rising temperatures. Along with her brood.
It is best to effectively prevent flies so that they do not breed in your home in the first place. Our EcoHome Spray can reliably prevent flies from preparing for spring in your home and then spreading. Fly screens in front of the windows are of course an alternative - but who wants them all year round? And they don't provide reliable protection either.
