experience and expertise in fly control can solve even the most
difficult or extensive problem, whether that fly problem is on a
farm, restaurant or office setting. Flies can be more than nuisance
to guests, customers and employees. They can carry diseases and
Beside farms (click this Agriculture
link for more information on farm fly control), restaurants
and businesses are concerned mostly with House Flies and Fruit Flies,
both of which can be controlled using non-chemical solutions, enhancing
safety for staff, guests, customers and employees.
Leaf starts with a thorough inspection of the facility to confirm
the type of fly, where they are breeding and feeding and what other
conditions in the facility are contributing to their continued existence.
A review of housekeeping, sanitation and maintenance practices are
also completed, especially looking at how garbage is handled and
removed, garbage container cleaning schedules, organic matter build-up
in drains and other areas, screening of exterior openings, dumpster
cleanliness and location, etc.
After an analysis of our findings, Leaf will develop a plan of
action that will include sanitation, housekeeping and maintenance
recommendations along with the use of insect fly lights, drain cleaning
and exterior surface control.
Below is a list of our other Specialized Services with links to pages containing more information:
- Insect Fly Lights – These lights, which are approved for
use in food handling and processing areas, are a valuable and
highly effective tool to use in sensitive environments such as
restaurants…when properly installed. Leaf offers a wide
variety of lights in different sizes and cosmetic form, many of
which could fit in pleasantly in a food service area. Leaf provides
advice as to proper placement and our monthly maintenance program
ensures that the lights are kept clean and that the glue board
and UV light bulb are always fresh and highly effective.
- Drain Cleaning – Because organic (food) matter build-up
in drains makes for an excellent breeding ground for fruit flies,
it is essential that drains be kept clean. Of course, organic
build up in floor/wall cracks, under shelves, between equipment,
etc. needs to be cleaned likewise. Leaf’s microbial cleaning
service will accomplish this. The microbes are non-harmful bacteria
that were developed to consume oil, grease and sugars found in
these common areas of build-up. With Leaf’s monthly placement
of a microbial solution in built-up areas, the bio-cleaning action
reduces the food sources that serve as breeding areas for fruit
and drain flies.
- Exterior Surface Control – Each month during the outdoor
fly season, Leaf treats the exterior surface areas of building
experiencing house fly problems. This special residual solution
first attracts the flies then kills them. The program also includes
treatment around the dumpster area and other fly-attracting areas
to control the fly population before they can enter the facility.
