No flies on us

Flies can be a nuisance when buzzing around a business.

Businesses may initially decide to ignore the problem, but if they see flies in larger numbers, they could be facing an infestation, which requires fly control.

Potential harm from Flies:

  • Spread of diseases
  • Contaminated food
  • Bites – some species will bite humans and animals
  • It’s important to act if clients see an unusually large number of flies or if they are really interfering with their business.

Signs of a Fly Infestation:

Noticing a few noisy flies in a business may not mean they have an infestation, however it should act as a warning sign to take some preventative action.

Common signs:

  • Small dark clusters of spots – in light areas (the size of a pinhead).
  • Regular sighting of flies – around your workplace, food or bins.
  • Maggots – these are flies in their larval stage and could indicate a potential breeding site in your office.

How does a fly catcher work?

  • Fly catchers utilise ultraviolet tubes to attract flying insects into the product, before zapping them dead on a high voltage grid or trapping them on a sticky glueboard.
  • UV tubes attract flying insects by emitting a wavelength of light attractive to flies. Flying insects are attracted to the tube which emits UV at a level comparable to that of the sun, which the flying insect has a natural attraction to as a source of heat.
