What are the most common Flies found on New Zealand properties?

In New Zealand, there are several species of flies that can be found both inside and outside properties. Some of the most common types include house flies, bluebottle flies, cluster flies, and sand flies.

  • House flies are commonly found in and around homes, as they are attracted to food and garbage. Bluebottle flies are known for their bright blue or green appearance, and are often found near carrion or other decaying organic matter.
  • Cluster flies are typically found in homes during the autumn and winter months, when they are seeking a warm place to stay over winter
  • Sand flies are typically found in outdoor environments, near water sources, and are known for their painful bite.

To prevent and control fly infestations, it’s important to maintain a clean and well-sanitised living and work environment, and to dispose of food and garbage properly.

What damage can Flies cause if left unchecked?

Flies can cause a variety of problems for properties, both inside and outside.

  • They can spread diseases by carrying bacteria and other pathogens from one location to another, contaminating food and other surfaces as they feed.
  • Flies can also cause structural damage, as they can lay their eggs in rotting organic matter, which can attract other pests such as ants and beetles.
  • Furthermore, flies can be a nuisance for homeowners and employees, as they can be difficult to control and eliminate once they have infested a property.
  • In addition, certain species of flies, such as sand flies, can bite and cause painful welts

To minimize the damage that flies can cause to your property, it’s important to address infestations quickly and effectively, using the services of a professional pest control service.

What can I do to keep Flies at bay?

To minimise the presence of flies on your property, follow these tips:

  • Keep your property clean and well-sanitised: Regularly clean and disinfect surfaces, including countertops, sinks, and trash cans. Keep food stored in sealed containers and dispose of garbage frequently.
  • Seal entry points: Make sure windows and doors are properly sealed, and repair any damaged screens.
  • Use fly traps: Place fly traps in strategic locations, such as near windows, doors, and in areas where food is stored or prepared.
  • Use fly repellents: Use natural or chemical fly repellents to keep flies away from your property.
  • Keep outdoor areas clean: Remove any rotting organic matter, such as piles of leaves or compost, and keep your lawn mowed and trimmed.
  • Store food properly: Store food in sealed containers and dispose of any overripe or rotting fruit and vegetables promptly.
  • Keep pet food covered: Cover pet food bowls when not in use to prevent flies from feeding.

By following these tips, you can significantly reduce the presence of flies on your property, and maintain a clean, healthy, and fly-free environment.

Where can Flies be found on my property?

Flies can be found both inside and outside properties.


Inside, they may be attracted to areas where food is stored, prepared, or consumed, such as kitchens, dining rooms, and pantries. They may also be found in bathrooms, near trash cans, or near sources of moist organic matter, such as drains or compost piles.


Outside, flies may be found near garbage cans, compost piles, pet waste, and other sources of rotting organic matter. They may also be attracted to outdoor areas where food is stored or consumed, such as patios or outdoor dining areas. Some species of flies, such as sand flies, are attracted to damp and shady areas, such as wooded areas or bodies of water.


By understanding where flies are commonly found, you can take steps to minimize their presence and reduce the risk of infestations on your property.
