Types of Flying Insects in Arizona 

The following flying insects may not pose an immediate threat to your health, but it is crucial to bring in pest control service specialists to solve any flying insect issue you might have. Some of these pests carry deadly diseases that can affect you, your loved ones, employees, or customers.

Additionally, many flying insects reproduce in short time spans. Without effective pest control solutions, you may find yourself with an overwhelming infestation before you know it. Whether you’ve caught flying insects around your home or you suspect they’re starting to invade, contact Responsible Pest & Scorpion Control to learn how we can help. 

Mosquitoes

There are more than 3,000 species of mosquitoes found throughout the world, but the ones you’ll find in Arizona are typically gray or black with white underbellies. They also have humped abdomens, long legs, and needle-like mouths they use to puncture the skin of people and animals to feed on their blood. Aside from causing itchy bites, they often carry deadly diseases, such as dengue fever, the West Nile virus, and more.

House Flies 

Keeping house flies out of your space can feel like an uphill battle. These dark-gray, striped pests are drawn to food waste found in the trash cans of Arizona homes and businesses. In addition to feeding on rotten meat, vegetables, and other decaying waste, they lay up to 100 eggs in spoiled food. To make matters worse, these eggs can hatch within 24 hours of being laid, leaving your home with a full-blown fly invasion. Adult house flies can spread typhoid and other diseases to fresh food, too, potentially sickening your family or customers.

Fruit Flies

They might not bite the way stable flies or mosquitoes do, but fruit flies are still a serious problem for residents and business owners throughout Arizona. When they walk across rotten fruit and other food waste, they pick up bacteria on their feet, which they can spread throughout your living or commercial space. Not to mention, they also multiply quickly. 

Stable Flies

Homes and businesses aren’t the only places flies target. From barns to horse stables, stable flies are a constant nuisance for horses, cows, and other large animals. Mottled tan and black in color, they bite animals and people to feed on their blood. Additionally, they can spread several diseases through their painful bites, such as anthrax and equine infectious anemia (EIA).
