However this months Pest Of The Month is the pesky Cluster Fly

Cluster Flies

These are dark greyish flies about 8mm long with yellowish hairs on the back and with overlapping wings. In autumn they congregate in large numbers in upper rooms or roof spaces of houses to hibernate.

If you have noticed regular numbers of flies in your home it could be that you have an infestation of our Pest Of The Month!!

Cluster flies will find their way through small cracks and openings in rooms and emerge early from their hibernation as they have been tricked into thinking it is Spring by the warmth and light of our homes.

They will then re-emerge in Spring to seek out egg laying sites outside. A mass of cluster flies has a characteristic smell.

They are sluggish in flight and are a nuisance in the house. The larvae of one species are parasitic upon certain earthworms, so this species is more common in rural areas.
