Types Of Flies In The UK
There are approximately 120,000 species of flies that have been described by science. The actual number of species in the world is likely to be much larger. Species of flies are grouped into genera and families. Within a family and genus, the species may share similar habits and lifestyles such blood feeding or breeding in filth.
Many are considered pests because they pose a health risk to humans, pets, and livestock. Flies can infest your home or business and spread diseases like Salmonella and E. coli. A few species may even bite humans and animals.
Flies can regularly be found in homes and businesses across the UK. Some species are more common than others and are attracted to different environments suited to their natural habits and lifecycle.
