Good Sanitation is the first step in all fly control programs. Flies lay eggs in warm and moist materials like garbage. Clean up garbage, rotten vegetables and fruits, human feces, etc. An adult fly can emerge in 7-10 days from an egg form.
Along with a sanitation program, you can use insecticides, fly traps and fly bait.
Fly baits are made with special lures to attract flies. Once they eat the bait, they will die very quickly. We recommend Bonanza Fly Bait. This granular fly bait contains imidacloprid that kills flies that are resistant to insecticides.
You can use it in fly bait stations, like the Apache Fly Bait Station by Starbar
House Flies: Common filth flies such as the House Fly, Blow Fly, Black Soldier Fly and Flesh Fly, you can spray residual insectides on their landing or resting areas. Also spray around windows and doors. There is a variety of residual insecticide concentrates that you could use. Use residual insecticides, fly baits, and traps.
Drain Flies: These small flies include the Fruit Flies, Phorid Flies, Drain Flies and Fungus Gnats. We have drain treatment gels, fruit fly traps, and aerosols to help you solve your small fly problems. As with the filth flies, these flies need to be eliminated at the source. Invade Bio Drain Treatment is a very effective, all natural way to combat Drain Flies.We carry a full line of drain fly treatment.
Mosquitoes: Cluster Flies, Mosquitoes, Stable Flies and Flesh Flies are nuisance and biting flies. Mosquito control is handled either by insect growth regulators, propane foggers outside, or residual insecticides sprayed on the lawns.
