How to get rid of flies

29 Aug

There are over 110,000 species of flies in the world and over 7,000 in the UK. They are considered pests because of the range of diseases they can spread from gastroenteritis and dysentery to Salmonella and E. coli.

Left untreated a few flies can quickly turn into a hazardous problem – especially for restaurants and kitchens. What starts off as a seemingly innocuous situation can rapidly turn into a full blown infestation.

Calling in a professional pest management company is the best way to ensure that flies are completely eradicated from any commercial or domestic premises.

At Abate we have a range of treatments we can use to make sure we clear your home or commercial premises quickly and discreetly.  From fly screens, to electronic fly killers (EFKs), to sprays and glue boards. We will inspect your site, discuss the issues we find and agree with you on the best solution for your fly problem whether this be fly screens or fly control units.

This month we were called in to install fly screens in a school kitchen in Newport, Essex. We can make and fit made-to-measure fly screens for any window or door. These keep the flies out while still letting the fresh air in.  All our insect screens for windows have mitred corners and a flat smooth face that make them unobtrusive and easy to clean.

We also have a range of EFKs suitable for use in different locations. Some are designed for public areas – such as restaurants, bars, hotels, retail shops where fly control needs to be hidden from view, others are more suitable for problems areas which the public don’t access – such as kitchens.

This month saw us carrying out servicing and maintenance on some EFKs for a company in the Innovation Centre in Cambridge. The work included changing the glue boards in their units.

At Abate not only can we install fly control units we also service and maintain them. We will regularly change the glue boards and lamps in the EFKs and, if you are in the food production or packaging sector, we can also carry out fly counts. Monitoring and recording both the number and species of fly caught to enable quick identification of any regular pest issues.
