Cluster flies (Pollenia rudis) begin looking for protected places to survive the winter in fall. They usually gain access to interiors through cracks or holes in the exterior walls, or under the eaves of the buildings.
The presence of cluster flies inside a structure can create health and liability concerns, especially in sensitive locations, such as hospitals, food processing and handling facilities. Dead bodies of cluster flies inside wall voids, cracks and crevices may trigger allergic reactions in sensitive individuals; in addition they would attract unwelcome pests that feed on them, such as hide beetles, larder beetles, carpet beetles, and carpenter ants.
