The bottle fly is a common household fly. They are known for their metallic blue or green color and look like they are wearing aviator sunglasses. Some may enjoy their appearance but you won’t enjoy them if they’re in your home.
Bottle flies breed amongst unsanitary and filthy conditions. Like many other flies, they can spread diseases on the surfaces they land on including your food, kitchen counters, animal waste, and garbage. They are usually the first ones on the scene of a dead animal. Bottle flies lay their eggs in the carcass and the maggots will develop by eating the carcass. They develop from egg to adult in less than 3 weeks.
Finding bottle flies in your home is a good indication that you have either a dead animal located somewhere in your home or a sanitation issue. Either problem should be addressed immediately. Calling a pest control professional will allow them to identify the source of the problem and help to eliminate the original problem, as well as, the bottle flies.
