Fly control: How to get rid of a fly infestation
Fly management is critical in areas with humans, pets, and animals. Flies can be both an annoyance and a major health hazard. Flies concentrate around food preparation sites, trash areas, and livestock, therefore effective fly control is frequently required. A little problem might evolve into a significant infestation if professional pest services isn't used to control flies. A female fly, for example, lays roughly 5 bundles of around 140 eggs in her lifetime. Some fly species can go from embryo to adult in as little as 7 days. Pest management companies are usually hired only when the infestation has gotten severe.
How to determine if you need fly control
The requirement for fly control is obvious. Food prep sites, garbage areas, and places where strong-smelling livestock or food goods are kept draw flies. Fly excrement and signs that flies have dined on or deposited eggs on their meal have been discovered in some cases. Maggots are flies in their larvae that can be found in garbage bins, feces, or old food.
Why is it necessary to keep flies under control?
Flies migrate directly from feces, waste, and rotting matter to human foods as well as other surfaces, necessitating fly management. A fly would first liquefy its meal by regurgitating its digestive juices onto it before it can eat. It will then eat the dissolved substance by sucking it up. Cholera, Hepatitis, Typhoid, Salmonella, E. Coli, and Bacillary Dysentery are all diseases that can spread between humans and animals.
Strategies for fly control
Flies are controlled in a variety of ways by us. The treatment option is largely determined by the location of the infestation in relation to sensitive parts such as a kitchen. When utilized to control flies in locations where they cluster, residual pesticide sprays and baiting alternatives are particularly successful.
- Extermination of flies
- In regions where HACCP compliance is required, UV light catches and sticky boards are employed to eliminate flies.
- Fogging is used to get rid of flies in enclosed locations with a lot of them.
- Pest larvae are also treated with a residual mist as an appropriate fly control measure where they are discovered.
How can flies impact your business?
They harm your company's image. Customers will not return if they find flies surrounding their meal or the things you sell if you have flies flying around your food. If they excrete or lay eggs in your stock, they can harm it.
Methods of control
Bait alternatives include food that contains a chemical and is sprinkled in regions where flies cluster. Residual spray treatments are an option. UV light traps should be used primarily in places where HACCP compliance is required. In badly contaminated locations, we can also do fogging treatments.
