PEST MANAGEMENT
FLIES
More than 100 pathogens are associated with flies including: Salmonella, Staphylococcus, E. coli and Shigella.

These pathogens can cause disease in humans and animals, including: typhoid fever, cholera, bacillary dysentery, hepatitis, ophthalmia, polio, tuberculosis and infantile diarrhea.

Sanitation is critical to managing these pests, but accurate identification is essential for successful fly management.
INFO & TIPS ABOUT FLIES AND FLY MANAGEMENT
• Depending on the species, the life expectancy of a fly is eight days to two months, or in some cases, up to a year.
• Flies belong to the Order Diptera, meaning two wings.
• Flies plague every part of the world except the polar ice caps.
• One pair of flies can produce more than 1 million offspring in as little as six to eight weeks.
• As many as 33 million microorganisms may flourish in a single fly’s gut, while a half-billion more swarm over its body and legs.
• Flies spread diseases readily because they move quickly from rotting, disease-laden garbage to exposed human foods and utensils.
• Because they only have two wings, flies land often and therefore can deposit thousands of bacteria each time they land.
• For every fly seen, there are an estimated 19 more hidden from view. This means humans don’t even see most of the flies present at an infestation.
HOW DO WE MANAGE IT?
The management of flies is through proper sanitation. Insect light traps used by Environmental Essentials are the top of the range. Measured by a nano-meter, the effectiveness of our bulbs are always kept at its optimum, ensuring an effective UVA emission.

Not all flies are found in the same place. Specialists from Environmental Essentials are trained to locate the breeding grounds and identifying the different kinds of flies to effectively eradicate them.
