Flies are also link to a variety of human illness and disease, so they are considered vectors in the pest control industry. Fly control should be thorough of as a multi-faceted program that takes many approaches to the best level of control. Finding the source of flies can be difficult and they are capable of rapid reproduction, so using as many tools available is important, the point is that there is no one silver bullet for fly control.

In a restaurant you would need one in the kitchen area and also one located in the public spaces, these units are different of course.
  • Residual Spraying: A good residual insecticide applied in the appropriate areas will control adult flies in their breeding areas, you should think about the trash receptacles areas and bays that flies are naturally attracted to for insecticide application.
