The Role of Sanitation in Small Fly Population Reduction

McCloud Services, a leading pest management company servicing Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee, Ohio and Wisconsin, is generating awareness on prevention of small fly development in the retail, food and hospitality environments.

The article “The Role of Sanitation in Small Fly Population Reduction” discusses primary breeding spots for small flies and environmental conditions that will aid in the development of small fly populations.

“Small fly development is something we have a bit of control over and can often be eliminated by thorough sanitation programs. By eliminating the hospitable areas for small fly breeding, we eliminate places for females to lay their eggs. The key to making an entire area of a facility an inhospitable environment for small fly offspring is to increase sanitation and find those hard to reach moist areas that accumulate debris,” said Anna Getchell, training manager at McCloud Services.

McCloud Services discusses favorable environments for small fly development, common breeding sites found in food facilities and sanitation and exclusion methods in its article “The Role of Sanitation in Small Fly Population Reduction.”
