New Publication: Indoor Flies and Their Control

As we enter fly season in Texas, Dr. Mike Merchant, our Urban Entomologist in Dallas, has just published a very good resource for identification and control of indoor flies. The publication covers these common flies:

Small indoor flies

  • Fruit flies
  • Phorid flies
  • Drain flies
  • Fungus gnats

Large indoor flies

  • House flies
  • Soldier flies
  • Carrion flies

The section on control suggestions includes sanitation, drain and septic treatment, trapping, and insecticide selection.
