Flies develop so quickly, you can go from a minor problem to a major infestation almost overnight.
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.
Increasing concerns for food safety and sanitation mean customers have no tolerance for flies in your business, and neither do inspectors. An invasion of flies will drive away future business and risk your reputation.
When you're dealing with flies, it helps to know a little about their behavior.
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 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.
Sticky, sugary substances like fruits, syrup, and soda attract flies. Even small crumbs and debris can entice and sustain this aggressive pest.
"Flies are proficient at exploiting temporary resources - spills, trash bins, dirty floors or a dead mouse can quickly become a food source for flies."
