Pest NameDescription 
Little house fliesLittle house fliesThe little house fly, sometimes called the lesser house fly, is a nuisance pest. The small male flies (1/8 to 3/16 inch long) are often found in houses, however, females are rarely found indoors. Little house flies are nothing more than a nuisance because they fly around in jerky, zigzag, aimless flight in rooms and shaded entry ways. The little house fly breeds in animal dung and decaying plant material. The larvae are well adapted to move about in putrid, semi-liquid organic material.
