Flies and fly control in Thanet
I have small flies in my home! What are they?
We have many species of flies in Thanet and interestingly they are a pest species which are often symptomatic of another issue, you never just have flies .For example bluebottle are great indicators of decay and we often look for dead animals in the vicinity of the building where large bluebottle fly outbreaks occur. On average flies have relatively short lives of around 30 days but during that time they can lay 500 eggs so even the occasionally sighting can quickly turn into a fly infestation.
In Thanet we deal with a number of commercial fly issues which include both sewer and fruit flies and these pests are particularly prevalent in the catering industry especially restaurants, hotels and bars in Thanet. The build-up of fats and detritus in drains and plumbing often contribute to the problem with sewer fly infestations and part of our service includes drain jetting to remove the food source which will in turn resolve the fly issue.
FLY CONTROL TIPS:
- CLEAN AND WASH OUT BINS
- ELECTRIC FLY KILLERS (EFKs) IN THE CATERING INDUSRTY (RESTAURANTS/BARS/CAFES)
- FIX ANY LEAKS IN PLUMBING, PARTICULARY UNDER SINKS
- FLY SCREENS
- DRAIN JETTING FROM ENVIRON
