It’s 3 AM. Your eyelids are drooping as sleep tries to takeover. You’ve got an assignment due at 6 AM and more than half of it is left. You’re on the verge of crying your eyes out. In the midst of all this panic, the last thing you’d want is a fly buzzing in and out of your ear. You try and hit it with your notebook and thankfully, the nuisance goes away for a few seconds. And it comes back. The cycle repeats itself throughout the night.
What you get as a result is headache, annoyed mood, sleeplessness, and incomplete work.
Yes, this is what a tiny little fly can do to you and this is not it. There’s more to how flies can take away the peace of your mind. Read on to know.
The ultimate party pooper
When spring comes in, we all love visiting parks —sometimes to have an evening stroll and at some days, to just sit on the grass and have a family picnic. Spring is also a great time to spend some quality moments in your personal lawn and have a bit of barbecue party. Flies are an aggressive enemy of family picnics. They buzz over your food, making it impossible for you to enjoy it. If you see a pesky fly repeatedly landing on your food, chances are you’d get annoyed and wouldn’t want to eat it. When families want to sit together on the fresh grass and have a pleasant conversation, the buzzing of these flies make you want to throw everything away and run back home. Not just this, these flies secrete saliva over your food when they land on it and make it harmful for human consumption.
Kills your sleep
According to research, the biggest cause which made men wake up suddenly in the middle of the night was the buzzing of flies. At times, this one culprit fly can become so impossible to deal with that it doesn’t leave your room even if you open up the window. In shirt, it can drive you insane. Although flies are a great source of annoyance throughout the day, they’re a bit too active at night. The most bothersome of these flies is the deer fly which is known to be a ‘buzzing menace’. According to the World Health Organization, the presence of a fly has negative psychological impact on humans.
They can even make you sick
The house fly is capable of transmitting as many as 65 diseases within humans. Some of these are typhoid and cholera. The fly works as an effective disease carrier which picks up infectious organisms as it crawls and then transmits them to human food. Their favorite places to breed are trash boxes, garbage bins, decayed food, wound discharges, sweat, animal dung, or human fecal matter. It’s therefore very important to always keep your food covered before a housefly lands on it. Other ways to keep house lies at bay are fly traps, proper sanitation, sticky tapes, and seeking help from pest control services.
