Information Regarding Cluster Flies - Schmon Tower

Posted October 20, 2014
Every spring and fall the occupants in the Schmon Tower notice an increase of flies. These flies are Cluster flies and they typically live outdoors. In the fall they migrate towards warmth and in the spring they attempt to return to the outdoors. These flies are different than the house fly which consumes trash and debris. They do not carry disease and are not in the building due to poor housekeeping, but are seeking warmth. Their larvae consume earth worms to survive and adults feed on plant material. As such, these flies do not multiply while they are indoors.

Repair work to the exterior caulking and window sealing to help prevent the immigration of the flies has been identified on the University’s Deferred Maintenance list, but the work is not anticipated to start this year. In the meantime, Custodial Services will be cleaning the window sills in the Schmon Tower on a routine basis. Per discussions with Health, Safety & Wellness, fly treatment will not be applied. The cluster flies have a short life span and the solution only shortens their life span by a day. Fly strips are available upon request by contacting Facilities Management Customer Service at facilities.management@brocku.ca

If you have any comments please contact Bryan Cober, Structural Services Manager at x3290 or at bcober@brocku.ca.
