Flies and other airborne insects are a huge nuisance in general, and especially if you live in a suburban environment, or somewhere flies are known to be present in large quantities. They are very invasive, often disease-ridden and carrying some very harmful germs which can lead to a variety of illnesses. More than that however, they are very annoying, especially if they enter your house and buzz around, refusing to fly out.
Common Fly Prevention Measures
There is a variety of methods people use to rid their houses of flies. Some people prefer the more traditional approach of aerosol insecticide spray. Sprays and other insecticides are effective in getting rid of insects, however, they are harmful towards human health if inhaled or consumed in some way (usually through contact with food). This is a very detrimental quality, as what is supposed to prevent harm usually ends up becoming the source of harm.
Then there are deterrents such as incense and vaporisers that spread insecticide automatically around rooms and living spaces. These are similar to conventional spray-based aerosol insecticides. However, they can also have the same detrimental effects as the aforementioned aerosol sprays. In addition to that, since they are designed to naturally vaporise; they can be quite a lot stronger than sprays, and can trigger allergies in some people.
Perhaps the most effective method of fly and airborne insect prevention is install fly screens in doorways and windows. Fly screens have proven to be effective all around the world, and they are the only method of insect-deterrence that does not involve harmful chemicals and such. This is something that makes them very useful in homes that have younger children or people prone to allergies.
Benefits of Installing Fly Screens in Homes
Fly screens are a protective measure that never disappoints. Following are some of the biggest benefits of having fly screens installed in your homes as a method of preventing flying insects from entering your home.
- The first and foremost benefit is quite obvious, in that fly screens and finer varieties of screens prevent the influx of insects such as flies, mosquitoes, moths and bees. Screens come is several mesh sizes, with the finer ones being able to keep out even the smallest flying insects. Generally, doors and windows have the same mesh size, which is installed as a single unit. This means that all entrances of the house are protected by the screens.
- Fly screens are the only fly-prevention method which does not involve chemical usage. If you are someone who suffers from allergies, this is the way to go. You will also have the advantage of not having to refresh and maintain, something that is necessary with sprays and vapour-based insecticides.

- Since most screens are made of an alloy or non-metal, you do not have to worry about rust. In the event that a screen is made of metal, it will probably be one that is both rust-proof and light, to allow for easy installation.
- Fly screens act as an extra layer of security for your home, as they prevent intruders from entering the house when secured properly. Small animals are also prevented from coming in by the screens, making them useful for pest deterrence as well.
