How to Get Rid of Flies -Flies can cause problems, especially when it comes to contaminating your food. While the average house fly does not bite people, it can spread disease and pathogens including salmonella, malaria and tuberculosis. Fruit flies are smaller but can lay up to 500 eggs on the surface of your food. Preventing flies from coming into your home is just as important as removing them. Get rid of flies by making a do-it-yourself trap or buying a commercial trap. by annabelle
