Cluster flies are often confused with house flies. They are a little larger than house flies and the cluster fly’s wings overlap and a house fly’s wings do not. Cluster flies are also slow-moving as opposed to the house fly zipping around your home.
Thankfully cluster flies are more creepy than they are harmful. Cluster flies are attracted to light, which is why you’ll see them emerge on warm, sunny days. They are also known as “attic flies” because they hide in dark, out of the way places like attics and wall voids during the cold winter days. They don’t carry the contaminants associated with the garbage-seeking house flies so their presence is an unsettling nuisance rather than a threat.

Preventing Cluster Flies
Getting rid of cluster flies on your own can be a challenge so it’s best to avoid getting them in the first place.
- Most cluster flies enter at the soffits of your home, so make sure they are sealed. Also check any other entry points to your home like cracks and crevices around doorways and windows.
- Use a residual insecticide spray on the outside of your home in the fall so they can’t get in.
Once inside, you can try traps, flypaper or even swatting them dead but since they gather in such large numbers you’re fighting a never-ending battle.
