As a restaurant or food establishment owner, you know how important it is to maintain a clean and hygienic environment for your customers. One of the biggest challenges in achieving this is dealing with flies. Flies not only irritate customers but can also carry harmful bacteria that can cause food poisoning. In this blog post, we'll provide you with the ultimate guide to commercial fly control for restaurants and food establishments.

Identify the Source of the Problem

The first step in controlling flies is to identify the source of the problem.

Flies breed in moist and dirty areas, such as:

  • Garbage bins
  • Drains
  • And compost areas

By identifying these areas, you can take steps to eliminate them or keep them clean.

Implement Sanitation Measures

Sanitation is key to controlling flies. Make sure your establishment is clean and free of food waste. Regularly clean and sanitize floors, walls, and surfaces. Keep garbage bins tightly sealed and dispose of them regularly. Use a drain cleaner to prevent buildup of organic matter in drains.

Use Fly Traps and Baits

Fly traps and baits can be an effective way to control flies. Place fly traps in areas where flies are most active, such as near garbage bins and food preparation areas. Fly baits can be used in areas where traps are not practical, such as near electrical outlets.

Install Fly Fans

Fly fans are a relatively new technology that uses a combination of light and airflow to control flies. The fans attract flies with UV light and then trap them in a sticky glue board. This is a chemical-free and eco-friendly way to control flies.

Hire a Professional Pest Control Company

If you've tried all of the above methods and still have a fly problem, it's time to hire a professional pest control company. They have the expertise and equipment to eliminate flies and prevent them from coming back.

Controlling flies in a restaurant or food establishment requires a multi-pronged approach that includes sanitation measures, fly traps and baits, fly fans, and professional pest control services. By following these tips, you can ensure a clean and hygienic environment for your customers, while protecting your reputation and bottom line.
