There are many reasons to control flies; they are not only an inconvenience but can also spread diseases. They may cause an unpleasant environment in your home or harm your reputation as a business owner. The first step in resolving a fly infestation is to identify source and entry points. There is no prevention or residual product that can eradicate a fly infestation, but there are several things we can do to help you.
You can prevent fly infestations by maintaining a clean restaurant. Wipe down your countertops, bar areas, tables, kitchen areas, and soda or beverage dispensers regularly throughout the day. Clean areas under appliances and shelves every night. Keeping garbage cans tightly covered and emptying them frequently will help eliminate any decaying food or liquid residues, particularly in drains, between tiles, in the grout, and at the floor/wall junctions. Creating a simple cleaning routine with your staff to keep the area clean and less attractive to flies.
How Do Restaurants Get Rid of Flies?
Preventative measures are the key to keeping your restaurant fly free.
Ensure That Produce Deliveries Are Thoroughly Inspected
Inspect produce deliveries on arrival for rotten items. Throw away anything questionable in a sealed bag. Flies can be brought into your restaurant by outside vendors who deliver produce.
Consider A Fan
If you use a fan for strong air movement, you can prevent some flies from landing on produce, exposed food items, or surfaces and laying eggs or contaminating them.
Keep an Eye Out for Moisture
Limiting water sources and moist conditions reduces the level of fly infestation in sinks, ice wells, buckets of water for cleaning, floors, and drains as these are both areas where water accumulates and where flies thrive.
Restaurants typically have a monthly or bi-weekly pest control agreement with a credible pest specialist to keep pests at bay. But, that doesn’t mean fly infestation can’t happen. And when they do, a pest technician will quickly notice and take the necessary steps to address the problem. It will start with a thorough survey of the premises.
Once completed, they will recommend a fly control treatment program that is tailored to your specific fly issues that will provide long-term effective protection against flies. Fly control service includes:
