Professional Fly Infestation Control for Surrey
A Fly infestation needs to be cleared mainly because of the risk of bacteria transfer from carrion, faeces and putrid material to our food and food surfaces.
There are many ways to control a fly infestation, some of which are dependent upon the species however generally:
Pesticides– Aerosols, Insecticidal fogs and sprays, lacquers etc. All designed to kill insects upon contact. some have a residual effect, lasting for days or weeks after treatment, others don’t leave a residue at all. This means we can choose from a range of products to treat your particular issue quickly and effectively.
Exclusion – Can be as simple as keeping doors and windows shut, however this is not always practical so we can Fit insect screens to windows and doors, air-blowers, blocking holes in building fabric, covers over drains/bins etc. Keeping internal doors shut
Destruction – Electric Fly-killers, sticky board and electric grid of all shapes and sizes. Different types of insect traps, perhaps sticky or containing water or fruit based liquid attractants.
Cleaning – Often the key to getting rid of fly infestations – clean out drains, bins, behind/under units etc to remove fly breeding sites and get rid of food sources.
Treatment methods can vary greatly from cleaning up to finding and removing breeding sites, stopping them coming indoors as well as pesticides in various formulations.
Our no-obligation site survey will identify the best solution(s) for long term control as well as the here and now riddance.
