Flies develop so quickly, you can go from a minor problem to a major infestation almost overnight.

KEY RISKS 

Flies leave fecal spots as they fly – and land – around a facility, spreading filth on lights, walls, windows, and food. They also carry disease and contaminate food.

Given a moist environment – common in many commercial establishments – flies multiply quickly, laying 250-900 eggs in their short lifespan. It only takes a week for your irritating fly problem to reach severe infestation levels.

Education

When you're dealing with flies, it helps to know a little about their behavior.

FLIES DEVELOP FAST.

Flies take about 7-10 days to develop. Installing insect light traps can capture adult flies as soon as they take to the air.​

FLIES LIKE MOISTURE.

Flies like moist environments. They often feed and lay their eggs on garbage and decomposing food. Look for hidden moisture caused by leaky pipes and condensation when tracking down the source.

FLIES HAVE A SWEET TOOTH.

Sticky, sugary substances like fruits, syrup, and soda attract flies. Even small crumbs and debris can entice and sustain this aggressive pest. 

DIY TIPS
 

SCREEN THEM OUT.

Install screens on all windows to keep your business cool, but closed to flies.

KEEP IT CLEAN.

Wipe your counters clean and fix leaks quickly to keep flies out of your work place. Keep trash cans covered and never let the trash overflow.

MAKE IT POSITIVE.

Aim a fan at doors that open frequently. The positive air movement will push flies out of entryways, keeping them outside.

"Flies are proficient at exploiting temporary resources - spills, trash bins, dirty floors or a dead mouse can quickly become a food source for flies."
