Flies
Flies are synonymous with Australian rural and urban landscapes and can be a major pest in commercial premises especially those which practise a less than perfect standard of sanitation. No matter which species we are dealing with, pest managers must always utilise the principles of Integrated Pest Management in order to succeed. Flies of all species belong to the order Diptera, one of the largest orders in the world. There are probably 150,000 described and undescribed species in the order, with over 6,000 species found in Australia.

Flies are synonymous with Australian rural and urban landscapes and can be a major pest in commercial premises especially those which practise a less than perfect standard of sanitation.

Whether you are in a café, a supermarket, a fish shop or at an outdoor barbecue, you are more than likely to encounter one or more species of fly.
