Indoor flies are opportunists. Give them a place to breed, and they’ll be all over the place just like, well, flies.

The publication covers both the smaller flies, like fruit flies, phorid flies, drain flies and fungus gnats, and the larger indoor flies like blow flies, house flies and soldier flies. Each of these different kinds of flies have a preferred place to raise a family. And by far the best way to rid your home or business of flies is to find and eliminate these breeding “hot-spots”.
