Sanitation & Fly Control

  • Keep garbage cans and dumpsters clean. Invade Bio Foam is an all natural product, a probiotic ¬†used to spray on left over organic debris in dumpsters. Soldier Fly larvae are commonly found around dumpsters and garbage cans. Keep tight lids on the garbage cans. Flies are attracted to odors. Keep garbage cans as far away from doors as possible to keep them from moving into the structure.
  • Repair window screens and doors. Openings to buildings should be tightly screened with mesh screens. Where doors must be kept open for customers, trucks, etc., outfit the doors with air curtains. Air curtains can prevent fly entry if the velocity is 1,600 feet per minute or higher.
  • Pick up pet waste in the yard. Flies love to breed and lay eggs on this material because of the moisture content.

Flies have been a nuisance insect for thousands of years. They affect human welfare because they can transmit diseases. Flies such as the common house fly are classified as filth flies because they breed in rotten food, manure, and garbage. A fly can mature from egg to adult in as few as ten days. This quick maturity can cause a severe fly problem in a short period of time. Getting rid of flies long term begins with proper sanitation and exclusion. To kill the existing fly population insecticides are used. The insecticides come in residual forms, aerosols, fogging materials, and baits. Fly Lights with distinctive UV spectrums are also popular for attracting flies and trapping them. Fly lights are most popular in commercial establishments because they work well. We also carry fly glue traps.
