    Fly Control - Domestic and Commercial

    Flies have been a nuisance to man since the beginning of time. Controlling their populations is important from both a human and animal health perspectives. As well as ruining foodstuffs, they can transmit numerous illnesses and diseases, such as: food poisoning, conjunctivitis, typhoid fever, tuberculosis, cholera, diarrhoea and dysentery. 

    The Solution?

    Call Pest ID today today and we will customise an environmentally responsible Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program where we specifically target to control fly populations. We look at a long-term strategy designed to keep pest levels below desirable thresholds through inspections, sanitation recommendations, mechanical, biological, and cultural controls. If your business is in the food trade, our IPM controls can be documented within your HACCP.

    Sanitation

    Breeding site elimination is the key to successful fly control.

    Since many species of flies breed within your premises, and they have a very short life cycle,  just killing adults alone will not keep the problem under control. More adults will emerge daily if all the breeding sites are not eliminated.

    Drain flies typically breed in the frothy scum called a “bio-film” which forms in drains and other areas where dirty water runs over an undisturbed surface.

    Fruit flies can breed in drains too, but more often Fruit flies will breed in any crack, crevice, or other area where food and moisture collect and are undisturbed i.e. all the areas that should be cleaned, but have not.

    Inspection

    Just as sanitation is the key to successful fly management, detailed inspection is the key to sanitation. To eliminate fly breeding sites, we must find out what is attracting them in the first place. This can only be done by conducting a thorough inspection of the premises, by knowing what to look for and where to look.

    Once we have identified the flies involved, inspected for material that attracts that species and then recommend sanitation procedures to eliminate what is attracting them.

    Exclusion

    Where possible with fly management we need to exclude them from the premises. This is done by keeping windows, doors and vents closed as much is practically possible. Simply by screening and sealing around these and other fly entry points will have a dramatic reduction in fly problems. Automatic door closing devices and air curtains that blow air away from doorways and entrances can also can be installed to supplement an integrated fly management program.

    Mechanical Control

    Mechanical fly control includes Electric Fly Traps (EFKs). Which attract the flies to a voltage that zaps them or towards a glue board to trap them

    Additionally Pest ID have 2 stroke and electric fogging machines that knock down large infestations very quickly. Smoke bombs for fumigation are also very effective.

    Paint on baits and larvicides are also used in our armoury against menace flies.

    Pest ID cover domestic houses, food trade, waste transfer/recycling centres, farms and anywhere that flies can become a health hazard or a pest
