Flies are vectors for disease traveling from sewage to the dinner plate. McCloud Services’ No Fly Zone™ program protects your health and safety through inspection and control techniques for small fly and large fly breeding areas.
Large Filth Fly Control for House Flies and Bottle Flies
Filth flies lay eggs in organic debris. They can breed year round, even in colder climates in heated buildings in which conditions conducive to breeding exist. Some species of filth flies can complete their life cycle in as little as seven days. Elimination of the breeding site and proper sanitation is key to the success of a fly management program. Potential attractions for Filth flies are garbage dumpsters, greasy surfaces in food prep areas, and spillage outside plants and mills.
No Fly Zone™ for Filth Fly Elimination
- We will inspect for signs of filth fly breeding sites, resting sites, and areas where flies are likely to enter the facility. The inspection and analysis will include both interior and exterior management.
- A detailed plan will be developed outlining what procedures will be implemented on the exterior and interior of the structure. Exclusion will be a key component for filth fly control.
- Both non-chemical and chemical strategies will be utilized. We will treat with Maxforce® Fly Spot Bait in critical areas such as around dumpsters, compactors and loading docks. Residual insecticide treatments will be made both inside and out to targeted fly resting sites in conjunction with the use of insect light traps (ILT’s).
- We provide sanitation recommendations and suggest structural modifications to help eliminate breeding sites all together, as well as determine if companion management procedures are required.
Small Fly Breeding Site Reduction Program for Drain flies, Fruit flies and Phorid flies
Nuisance small flies can be present in your facility year round, harboring in hidden, difficult-to-clean areas such as drains and soda machines. Small flies are prolific breeders that can rapidly increase in numbers and contaminate food preparation surfaces or areas. The key to long term small fly control is elimination of the breeding sites. Typical breeding sites may include: floor drains, cracked or missing floor tiles, organic debris underneath equipment, damaged floor and wall junctures.
No Fly Zone™ for Small Fly Elimination Program
- We will survey and properly identify fly zones where flies are actively breeding, the fly species and the conditions sustaining fly breeding.
- A detailed plan will be developed outlining what procedures should be implemented on the exterior and interior of the structure.
- Treatments will be performed to non-food contact surfaces where small fly larvae are living and/or their preferred habitats. Your service specialist will apply a bioremediation product to help eliminate the breeding site, and an agent to eliminate fly larvae such as insect growth regulators or insecticide residuals.
- We will make sanitation recommendations and suggest structural modifications to help eliminate breeding sites all together, as well as determine if companion management procedures are required.
Overwintering Flies: Cluster Flies and Face Flies
Some species of flies seek refuge in structures in the fall. These flies do not breed indoors but can be a nuisance and concern, especially in sensitive environments like food facilities and health care facilities. Two primary species of flies who exhibit this behavior are cluster flies and face flies.
No Fly Zone™ for Overwintering Fly Elimination Program
- We perform an inspection to determine the identity of the fly and determine the points of access.
- Both non-chemical and chemical strategies may be utilized in the battle against overwintering flies.
- We will make sanitation recommendations and suggest structural modifications, such as sealing cracks and crevices to help eliminate entry points.
