Identifying Flies in Nevada

Nevada, with its unique geography and climate, is home to a diverse array of fly species. From common house flies to pesky fruit flies, and even the occasional Humpback, Phorid fly, and the Cluster fly.

House flies are one of the most common and well-known fly species that infest human habitats. These medium-sized flies, typically measuring around 8-12 millimeters in length, are attracted to a wide range of organic matter, including food waste, garbage, animal feces, and decaying materials.


House Flies



Lesser house flies are small, flying insects commonly found in residential and commercial settings. While they are often mistaken for common house flies, lesser house flies have distinct characteristics.
