Where do cluster flies get into your home?
The good thing about a cluster fly, that buzzing fly found in your windowsills in the dead of winter, is that you can be assured that though they’ve made their way into your home, they are not breeding. In fact, cluster fly larvae develop inside earthworms in the summer. They only venture into your home in the late summer or early autumn as temperatures begin to fall.
You’ll notice cluster flies congregating on the warm side of your home in the sun. Then, as night falls, they will search for any possible access into the warmth of your home through several points including:
- Cracks in the wall
Though there are things you can do help, the only long-term solution to protect your home from a cluster fly infestation is to have a professional such as Greenshield properly seal the entrances and treat the structure.
