Drain flies: As the name suggests, these flies breed around open drains, tanks and sewers and when they get in your home, they carry those harmful bacteria with them.
Fruit Flies: These are commonly found around grocery items like fruits and vegetables, especially rotten food that is left in the open.
House Flies: These are the most irritating flies that you will usually find in houses and they hog on to almost everything. They prefer corners and edges or thin objects to rest on. Indoors, they rest on floors, walls and ceilings during the day.

These flies are not only a nuisance but also quite dangerous too. House flies are major carriers of disease. They are known to transfer over 100 pathogens resulting in ailments, including typhoid, tuberculosis, cholera and dysentery. House flies collect these pathogens on their legs and mouths when feeding on faeces, trash and other decaying material. For this very reason, it is important for you to implement fly control methods like bringing home a fly catcher machine.
You can start with a few basic hygiene checks like:
Always cover your food & store it in tight containers
Throw leftovers out immediately
Get pest control done by the municipality if you live around an open sewer
Clean your sink and any other damp places frequently
