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.

Why do I have flies?

Flies are attracted to a number of things. Thorn can help deliberate what type of fly you are dealing with, why it is attracted to your home or business and what type of treatment options will work best for you.

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. Thorn professionals can help identify harborage areas for flies. We are here to partner with you and help create an environment that is not conducive to flies.

Drain Foaming

One way to help control flies is to clean out drains by using a foamer. Flies lay their eggs in the organic matter that grows in drains and their larvae feeds on that matter until they grow to an adult.

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.

Eliminating flies can be difficult and generally requires multiple control methods to get the desired results. Pest professionals must be able to identify the fly species present, understand their biology and where they prefer to lay eggs, be able to locate potential breeding spots, and be able to create a short and long term control strategy that gets results. Understanding the biology of the flies is crucial to be able to get control.
