FLYING INSECTS

 

 

Because of their mobility and ability to transmit disease, flies pose a significant health threat to food-related operations. Flying insects such as bees, wasps and mosquitoes also pose considerable health and safety risks to the employees and guests of commercial businesses. As a result, there is a growing demand for solutions to flying insect pests.

 

Versacor developed a series of integrated flying insect programs which have proven effective at dramatically reducing flying insects in and around facilities of all types, thus improving workplace health, safety and guest satisfaction while ensuring regulatory compliance.

 

Versacor’s flying insect solutions are all components of our EcoGuard® service protocols that provide exceptional results while safeguarding the environment.

 

A Few Facts About House Flies

 

  • House flies are also known as filth flies because they lay their eggs in moist, decaying organic material, primarily manure or garbage.
  • Each female fly lays up to 500 eggs over a three to four day period.
  • The life cycle from egg to adult requires as little as seven to 10 days.
  • In addition to being a nuisance, house flies are known vectors of disease. Laboratory experiments in which flies were allowed to first walk over culture media and then sterile dishes resulted in the growth of more than 100 bacterial and fungal colonies.

 

Flying Insect Solutions

 

Sanitation

Getting to the source of a fly problem is critical. Many times, just eliminating the breeding site will solve a filth fly issue. Our Service Specialists are highly trained and skilled in identifying these sources and providing specific, relevant recommendations.

 

Exclusion

Preventing flies and other flying insects from entering the building is an important part of overall flying insect program. In addition to our Service Specialists identifying potential entry points and performing minor exclusion work, Versacor represents the full line of Berner® International air curtains for use in all types of commercial and industrial buildings. Air curtains keep insects out as well as help save on heating and cooling costs.

 

Insect Light Traps

Whether glue board or electrocution type units, insect light traps are the most effective way to safely eliminate flies that have already entered a building. Versacor offers a full line of the most powerful, professional grade insect light traps available anywhere. We offer maintenance programs for your existing light traps as well as full-service rental programs for a turn-key solution.

 

Biological Controls

Biologicals, such as parasitoid wasps, are eco-friendly alternatives to pesticide applications. Parasitoid wasps are tiny, nocturnal, burrowing insects that do not bite, sting or harm humans and animals. Female wasps pierce a newly formed fly pupa, or cocoon and insert an egg which in turn kills the fly. Food processing facilities typically benefit most from this form of exterior fly control.

 

Treatment methods

Many fly treatment methods are available to the Versacor Service Specialist including granular and liquid fly baiting and residual wipe-down applications. We use the best products and techniques on the market to ensure a fly-free environment for our clients and their guests. Speak with a Versacor representative to find out more about our fly treatment methods.
