How do you identify biting flies?

The bites you may experience while lounging at the beach are usually the work of little pests known by a variety of names such as sand fleas, midges or No see ums. These hard to detect bugs can bite your flesh and drink blood which can remind you of mosquito bites.

But these flies are worse parasites than mosquitoes because once they bite you, it can leave a huge, painful and itchy scar. Their scars can last for days, depending on their intensity, and usually look like big bumps.

You want to be wary of these biting flies at the beach because their bite and saliva are full of allergens that can cause bumps on skin, sand fever virus or Carrison’s disease. You would find them in brown colors with green, compound eyes and hairy head, thorax and legs. They come out in swarms when the environment is humid and are drawn to movement. They can also sense the carbon dioxide we give off as well as lactic acid our body naturally emits.

They become inactive in cold weather because the cold kills them and dehydrates the eggs. They prefer to settle in moist environments, such as barks, cracks and walls.

How To Keep Biting Flies Away At The Beach

Sunscreen and bug spray, really!

We believe at Solutions Pest and Lawn you should have all the facts, so here are a couple of easy fixes to help you with keeping the biting flies at bay.

Wear light colors

Sand flies are drawn to dark colors so make sure that you wear and pack light-colored clothing for the beach. Dark colors would invite a swarm of flies to attack you. Also, choose clothes that keep your arms and legs covered as well.

Apply repelling lotion

Consult your physician for appropriate lotions that could keep the flies away. Check ingredients to make sure that you are not allergic to them. Usually, these lotions would have to be reapplied after around 5 hours.There are also repellent sprays you can utilize

Keep disinfectants

Keep medicines and herbs just in case anyone happens to get bitten by a sand gnat. If you plan to stay longer, curative creams could help contain the clot, prevent the infestation from getting worse and reduce pain, swelling, itching.

Suck them up

Usually people keep small, customized vacuum cleaners for their cars and short holidays. You might want to consider keeping one in case you plan to spend a few days at the beach. This way, when you find flies in your house, swat them and vacuum them up. Keep the food covered so that flies don’t land on them. Either use insecticides on them or swat them if they get into the house. Then use repellent or insecticide sprays in rooms to keep the other flies from coming in. Keep the young ones away from flies as they may have low tolerance or immunity to bear the bite or infestation.

While it may be tough to ward off biting flies in open spaces such as a sandy beach, we recommend bringing along insecticide sprays if you plan to spend a few days at the beach.

Whenever you see a swarm near your beach hut, at least you would be able to prevent an attack by spraying on them, on the walls of your cabin and indoors to keep them out.

Small hand-held electric foggers are worth their weight in gold, and you will wonder how you survived without one all these years.  

Fog your yard and property to control flies, mosquitos and other flying insects all season long.  These units cost only a couple of dollars to run, less than a starbucks. Crazy really when you think of it that way.

If you own the area, you can use a fogger and a pyrethrin fogging material to control the issue.  We recommend any handheld foggers and Stryker 5-25.

If there is foliage around, we recommend using Reclaim IT. Lastly, you can use an environmentally friendly aerosol spray such as Pyrid Aerosol.

Simply spray the aerosol around the area you are setting up and that will keep biting flies away for the duration of your stay at the beach.
