Cat Fleas, Dog Fleas and Human Fleas

Fleas are the most frequently encountered biting insect in Glasgow and across Scotland. Although they usually are cat or dog fleas they can bite people too.

Arachnids

Although they crawl, arachnids are not insects. The ones found infesting people's houses in Glasgow and across Scotland are harmless spiders and several species of mites with House (Dust) Mite and Bird Mite encountered the most often.

The most common by far in Glasgow and across Scotland are Common House Fly and Blue Bottle Fly. These flies breed and lay eggs on unsavoury materials and are involved in disease transmission.

Cluster Fly

During the summer months, cluster flies live harmlessly out of doors although they may become pests in the autumn when they enter buildings in search of hibernation sites. These flies are not known to be a vector of diseases but apart from being a nuisance, they can produce an unpleasant smell when they congregate into houses for hibernation in large numbers. Cluster flies tend to infest loft spaces and upper floors of buildings. Because cluster flies do not usually infest the whole building but most often they are in the loft and the upper floor, the price of insecticidal treatment cannot be determined by the size of your house but rather by the size of the loft space, access into it and by a number of rooms on the upper floor.

Our price of insecticidal treatment to control cluster flies is £98 for a chalet or log cabin + 40 for a loft (£138 total per unit) and £136 for an average-size 3 - 4-bed house to include upstairs and loft only.

The Most Common Small and Tiny Flies

Drain Fly

Other commonly-used names for Drain Fly are Filter Fly and Sewage Fly. In homes, (not only in Glasgow and across Scotland) these tiny black flies are usually caused by a blocked drain or leaking pipe where stagnated water becomes a convenient breeding site for them. Drain flies first appear in kitchens and bathrooms. As an infestation grows, the flies may spread into the rest of the house. To cure a problem with drain flies you should first check drainage for blockages and water pipes in the house for leaks. Unblocking drains and repairing leaking pipes should precede our insecticidal treatment to clear adult drain flies.
