Cluster Flies


Found commonly throughout the UK, the name refers to its habit of clustering and hibernating in buildings.


During the summer and early autumn these flies are of no consequence. As the season cools they seek shelter in nooks and crannies in houses and other buildings. As temperatures drop they search for more protection and frequently form vast clustering masses in roof spaces and lofts. It has often been observed that the same house or building or of similar buildings will be chosen year after year.


Such large aggregations of flies do produce a rather sickly smell and, if warmed-up accidentally or artificially during their hibernation, may emerge rather lazily and create some consternation among people using the building. This has occurred commonly in church halls, domestic bedrooms and has even been recorded as a problem of fly-contaminated switch-gear in heated automatic telephone exchanges.
