Small Flies, Can Be a BIG Problem
Small flies can mean big problems for restaurants and other food processing and food service companies. The most commonly encountered types include fruit flies, drain flies and phorid flies. Unlike larger flies, these small invaders breed indoors, laying their eggs in scum called “bio-film” that builds up in drains and other moist, dirty areas. More than just a nuisance, flies can spread diseases and damage your reputation.

ecocare Fly/ILT Service:
Utilizes insect light trap (ILT)
When flies are the result of a sanitation issue, your Modern Pest Professional will utilize ILT Service. ILT Service makes use of traps designed to lure flies by mimicking conditions that attract them in nature. By attracting the flies, the traps are reducing their rate of reproduction. Traps are eco-friendly and do not contain pesticides.
