A management program involving some simple steps, InVade Bio Products, and the expertise of a Pest Manager can solve your fly problems once and for all.
These small steps can make a big difference.
Correction of some basic building sanitation and structural issues can go a long way toward elimination of small fly problems.
After your Pest Manager inspects your premises, he will make recommendations for steps you can take to help reduce fly problems. Small flies breed inside buildings, so eliminating their breeding areas is the best method for lasting control.
Some key action items include :
– regularly cleaning under counters and equipment, to remove any spilled food and drink.
– washing garbage bins regularly
– emptying mop buckets and hanging mops up so that they dry
– sealing cracks in floor tiles and between skirting boards and walls.
All insects need moisture to live. It is important to fix any leaks in water and drain pipes to prevent structural and odor problems, and the resulting chronic insect infestations.
Good sanitation combined with regular use of Invade Bio Products can eliminate or dramatically reduce small fly problems and unpleasant odors without the need to use any pesticides or harsh chemicals.
Small flies can be a big problem.. Small flies can be a big problem in restaurants and other food processing and food service areas, the most frequently encountered being fruit flies, drain flies and phorid flies. Small flies spread disease, are a nuisance and can affect customer good-will. Small flies breed inside buildings, laying eggs in the scum (called bio-film) that builds up in drains and other moist, dirty areas. Your pest manager is trained to identify areas where small flies can breed – it is important to work with him to help control these flies at the source.
Breeding Site elimination… Dealing with existing and potential breeding sites in your building is the key to safe, effective and long-term small fly control. Invade Bio Products are designed specifically to control small fly breeding sites in and around food areas. Invade products contain premium natural, non pathogenic microbes that digest the scum where flies breed. They also contain natural citrus oil for extra power and pleasant smell. Invade Bio products are much more effective than traditional pesticides for controlling small fly problems and are easier to use.
– InVade Bio Foam can be applied as a cleanout or on a monthly basis to drains and other areas where flies breed.
– InVade Bio Drain is a gelled formula which is applied to drains 1 to 3 times a week.
– InVade Bio Drain is used for floor level problems. It is used instead of your regular mopping or power spraying solution, and provides exceptional cleaning and degreasing action.
Adult Fly Removal… Trapping of adult flies is a useful extra as well. Adult flies have a very short life span, but traps can reduce the population quickly, including those which may come in from outside or which are brought in with produce. Catching these flies before they have an opportunity to lay eggs is beneficial. Small monitoring traps may be used to help pinpoint breeding areas. Invite lures and traps contain non-toxic attractants designed to lure flies into the traps. In some cases, they can be used to lure flies to a specific area to enable your pest professional to assess the problem. He may then choose to spot-treat that area with a residual pesticide. These traps may be sticky glue boards treated with InVite gel lure, or jar/cup style traps containing InVite liquid attractant. It is important not to disturb these traps and to follow any instructions your pest manager may give with regard to checking traps or replacing or refilling them.
