FRUIT FLY CONTROL PRODUCTS
GET RID OF FRUIT FLIES
Fruit fly problems are common in homes as well as in commercial food establishments, such as restaurants and cafeterias. Killing fruit flies and preventing future appearances is achieved by eliminating breeding sources as well as applying pest control chemicals. The presence of fruit flies indicates moisture and fermenting matter. Eggs are only laid where both of these criteria exist, and usually are relatively easy to identify as a source due to the adult fly activity.
Common areas for infestations include drains in sinks, and floor drains in commercial places, as well as under appliances that tend to have residual moisture. Food can also accumulate in cracks, and under broken floor tiles, and attract fruit flies once they begin to break down. Cleaning is the first step in an effective plan for control, as well as trying for any moisture can dry out. Depending on the location this may not always be practical, but it is an important step in overall, long term control. Clean interiors of drains with special kits designed to easily access a floor drain, and clean under appliances and other stationery objects.
Insecticides for fruit fly control can be purchased separately, or in a convenient kit. Aerosol sprays are used to provide a fast knockdown, and can be used in kitchens and baths to treat infested areas and equipment. PT 565 plus XLO is an aerosol with the active ingredient natural pyrethrin, which will kill fast but does not leave a lasting residual. Next, an insect growth regulator, such as Gentrol, is used in conjunction to ensure any developing larvae are also eliminated. The Gentrol has Methoprene as an active ingredient, and this provides a 2-3 month lasting residual.
Vector Fruit Fly Traps and Bio Drain Gel are also included in our control kits, and are used to assist in the effective elimination and treatment process. Continued maintenance and cleaning is important, and use of the drain cleaners is found to eliminate many common occurrences.
Utilizing all of the tools and treatments above will get you on the right path to a fruit fly free kitchen and home! Eliminate and prevent fruit flies today with ePestSolutions!
