House Flies in Hawaii are usually the common house fly or the lesser house fly. There are other species such as the Black Soldier fly, but it is less common in urban and residential areas. The common house fly is a public health concern in Hawaii as it spreads disease organisms such as dysentery and tuberculosis via its eating and defecation habits.
Where The House Fly Lives
House fly larvae can be laid and feed on any any moist, warm material such as kitchen garbage, excrement and areas that contain open garbage. The presence of a house fly usually indicates a house fly infestation or the nearby presence of larvae.
House Fly Control
Not only are house flies annoying, they are also carriers of disease and pathogens, so it is important they are removed and dealt with quickly. Make sure there are no available places for the house fly to lay its larvae, such as open trash containers or soft pet food left on your lanai. If you continue to have house flies you may need to use traps, fly bait or an application of insecticide.
