Services: Fly Control

Fly Control Services in Utah

Flies spread disease and ruin a guests experience.

They walk on feces, rotting food, and garbage and then land on our food. They regurgitate liquids from their stomach onto our food. Because of these unsanitary behaviors, flies must be controlled in food establishments and we’re here to help.

Fly Inspection

Fly control starts with a good inspection. We need to find out why there are flies present and what is attracting them there. It is critical to identify and eliminate these conditions in order to get control.

Insect Light Traps

Insect light traps are a great tool for monitoring and controlling flies. Proper light trap placement and maintenance is required in order to get the best result. Before installing an insect light trap, our pest professionals perform a sight survey identifying the best spots to install a light trap. It is not as simple as just putting up a fly light.

Fly Baits

We can use a number of baits to help control flies. These can be especially useful in locations that are naturally attractive to flies, like around the dumpster. Fly control is generally most successful when we use several tools and techniques like baiting, exclusion, reducing conducive conditions, and using insect light traps.
