Flies breed in any decaying, rotting organic matter like garbage, filth, excreta, manure etc. Garbage dumps attracts flies for food and to lay eggs. Flies regurgitate when feeding; this habit, together with particles of refuse stuck to their bodies, leads to contamination of human food and transmission of disease.
What We Do:
- Chemical Control
While the use of pesticides is usually not the best means of managing filth fly problems, sometimes chemical control can be a valuable component of an integrated fly management program. Pesticide-releasing fly strips can be placed in attics and smaller, unoccupied enclosed rooms where filth flies are a problem. Contact (non-residual) pesticides are applied as a space treatment (fogged) to kill adult flies. This type of control provides only temporary relief and cannot be relied upon to eliminate the problem. Residual pesticides – those that remain active for some time – can be applied to outdoor surfaces where flies rest, such as the outside surfaces of restaurants and public area. Fly baits formulations are also available for outdoor fly control, including use around dumpsters.
- Mechanical Control
The best means of controlling flies is through ultraviolet light traps. To be effective light traps must be properly placed. This type of trap should be placed where it cannot be seen from outside the building, no more than 5 feet above the floor (where most flies fly), and away from competing light sources and food preparation areas. Bulbs should be changed at least once a year.
- Sanitation: The key to managing all pests is sanitation.
- Inspection: Just as sanitation is the key to successful filth pest management, inspection is the key to sanitation. To eliminate breeding sites, one must first locate the attracting material.
- Exclusion: Another important step in pest management is to exclude them from the premises. This is done by keeping doors, windows and vents closed, as much is practical, and by screening and sealing around these and other entry points.
