Out of no way, you see a swarm of flesh flies! Why does it tell you? I'm afraid, you are facing dead rat problem; or worst! It might be other carcasses!!

Flesh fly has black and grey stripes. Flesh fly is 2 to 3 times larger than a normal house fly. It has checkerboard pattern at his abdomen and black and grey stripes on its thorax. Flesh fly life cycle is around 2 to 4 weeks. Most of the time, flesh flies like to breed in carcasses, dung or decaying materials. On top of that, flesh fly helps a lot in forensic entomology.

If you are having rat baiting control system, there are chances for you to face dead rat problem. Flesh flies can be one of the indications that your area might have dead rat around. Does that mean, rat baiting system is not advisable? 

Well, I won't say that. Up to date, rat baiting system is still a good method in controlling rats. What we need to do is, to apply this system at the right place; especially at the external compound and ensure it does not contact with your food. To be truth, when you are facing rats infestation outbreak, rat baiting system is the most effective way in helping you to bring down the infestation. Therefore, don't say NO to rat baiting system. Try to get help from your pest controller.
