Prevention

Blow flies control includes inspection, sanitation, mechanical control, and insecticide application. Physical control methods should be first used to get rid of blow flies in a particular location (removal of food source). Approved insecticide and sticky paper can be used to control the remaining lava, and adult. Blow flies can be controlled in buildings, restaurant and homes by good sanitation or hygiene practice, fly screen, electronic fly killers (EFK) etc

While a dead animal behind a wall or in a crawlspace is not always easily found, if you suspect a dead animal it must be removed.

Fly control is challenging because their larval sites must be located and eliminated for success, and these sites may be some distance from where the adults are a nuisance.  Keep doors and windows closed unless they are equipped with fly screens.
