Fight the Fly

Close Up of Fly

This time of year, flies are a frequent sight at commercial establishments. And like many other pests, flies are more than just a nuisance — they are a symptom of a greater problem. Left unchecked, they can damage your reputation and potentially threaten the health of your customers and guests, since they can carry billions of harmful microorganisms on and in their bodies.

The good news? There are a number of preventive measures you can take to help correct the conditions that may be attracting flies or allowing them to thrive. Instead of reacting with chemical treatments, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) proactively controls pests through sanitation, facility maintenance and exclusion tactics.

The following infographic gives you a deeper picture of just how harmful flies can be. You’ll also learn which fly species are most likely to threaten your establishment and what you can do to help prevent them.
