Flies are a serious health concern as they harbour bacteria and viruses that can be transferred to any surface they land or feed upon. Flies breed in filth and prefer decaying organic matter like manure, garbage dumpsters, and decaying vegetation. Common large flies include bottle flies, and house flies.
Large flies are highly mobile and quickly move from one bacteria-infested site to another. Flies can transfer pathogens like E. coli, fungi, and other harmful micro-organisms.
That’s where a professional pest management solution comes in. We can provide a custom large fly prevention and control program for your business.
The best way to protect your business from the health risks associated with large flies is to implement an integrated pest management program that includes sanitation and exclusion.
Good sanitation practices both inside and outside can reduce and eliminate fly problems in facilities. Large flies breed in garbage, trash bins, and overripe or rotting vegetables. By keeping the environment around your facility clean, you reduce the breeding sites around your facility and the potential for flies to come in.
The Solution You Need
The Solution You Need Our approach targets large flies from the outside-in. We inspect the property and look at breeding sites, eliminating favourable areas to prevent entry indoors. Next, we look for entry points and find solutions to stop them from making their way inside your facility. For large flies that manage to make their way inside, we will develop a custom program using leading-edge technology, professional-grade tools, and equipment to reduce and exclude flies from your property.

Discreet fly lights installed inside your facility offer a non-pesticide approach to reducing indoor populations.
Fly lights attract flying insects by shining ultraviolet light. Ultraviolet light is invisible to humans but not to flies, who are extremely partial to it and tend to eagerly fly towards it. Some fly lights are electrocuters and have electric grids that kill the fly instantly. Others have glue boards on which the fly is trapped, providing safe capture in food-sensitive areas.
The insect fly lights are maintained regularly by Abell's Technicians and provide a safe, effective way to control adult fly populations.
There are many kinds of fly lights. Your Abell Technician knows which fly light is right for your business. They will determine the location in your business that will provide maximum control and install it for you.
Our maintenance programs ensure your fly lights are always working. We check and clean them regularly, replacing glue boards as needed and light bulbs annually. Call us for a quote and more information. We can review your facility and recommend a large fly program to meet your needs.
Large flies normally breed outdoors before flying inside. Exterior treatment of flies is the most effective way to prevent them from coming inside. Your custom program includes treating:

Finding the root cause may require an expert set of eyes. Your Abell technician will provide instructions on preventative maintenance to make sure large flies don't make a home in your business.
