House Flies

 

Flies of many kinds have affected man and his welfare for thousands of years. Domestic flies have evolved to live in close association with man. They are normally found around and within structures and can become extremely annoying by their constant presence.

Flies are identified with disease-causing organisms. They have filthy habits which make them efficient mechanical vectors of disease. Pathogenic organisms are picked up by flies from garbage, sewage and other sources and then transferred on their mouth parts and body parts, through their vomitus or through their faces to human and animal food.

All flies have a complete metamorphosis with egg, larval, pupae and adult stages. Flies remain as close as possible to their breeding grounds and are seldom found in large numbers more than half a mile away. The tropical house flies commonly rest outdoors at night on herbage and on the lower branches of trees and shrubs.

By day house flies are commonly found indoors in kitchens, markets, hawker stalls, shops, restaurants, toilet, animal sheds, on food or on the floor and elsewhere. We can also find them outdoor on breeding sites or on the ground, especially places that are contaminated with garbage and food waste.

 

Control Methods

In order to detect potential pest issue early, we recommend you have regular inspection at your premises. All of our services are tailored to suit the need of your individual business.

  • Baiting

Fly Bait is a formula containing Fly Attractant which encourages both male and female flies to remain in the treated area, thus feeding on the bait. Provide initial knockdown and reduction of fly populations.

  • Light Trap

Flies are attracted to a certain light spectrum such as the Ultra violet light. Flies that are attracted to it will adhere to the sticky sheet located inside the light trap.

  • Sanitation

The “bottom line” to long term control is the fact that pest must have adequate food and shelter to live and thrive. The removal of these factors alone via sanitation practices will have tremendous impact in reducing pest population, However to control pest, without any attempt to eliminate their food and shelter via sanitation, pest populations can quickly and repeatedly rebound. Therefore, sanitation is the backbone of a successful or failure of the pest control program.
