Cluster Flies in March

Cluster Flies are a problem in the Autumn and the Spring. In the Autumn they are going into buildings for hibernation and in the Spring they are leaving the hibernation site. Both processes are not instant and may take several weeks or months depending on the weather (temperature and sunlight0 as well as being effected by artificial sources of heat and light in buildings. They (cluster flies) are more a nuisance than a health hazard and are not an indication of hygiene problems or a dead animal. They are just using the cavities in a building for hibernation purposes. Cluster Flies in March is a common problem and for the Spring time of year Cluster Flies in March is the peak month.

There are several species of Cluster fly, the most common species being parasitic on earthworms. The female lays eggs in the soil which hatch, bore into the soil and if lucky they find an earthworm. The larvae then feeds on the earthworm before pupating into the adult fly. There will be several generations per year. The amazing thing is that the descendants go back to the same hibernation site.
