Flies can pose serious health risks, capable of spreading diseases like Salmonella and E. coli. Therefore, effective fly control is essential in residential, commercial and agricultural settings to maintain a clean environment and help prevent the spread of diseases.

Follow these four steps to help ensure successful fly management:

1. Identification. Knowing the species’ unique characteristics can help you implement effective control measures.

2. Prevention. Sealing cracks, installing screens on windows and doors, and using fly traps are all effective exclusion techniques.

3. Sanitation. Recommend your customers practice proper waste management, clean up spills promptly and keep food covered.

4. Insecticide treatments. Liquid insecticides and fly baits can be effective in controlling fly populations when used according to
their labels.

Fly control isn’t a sprint; it’s a marathon. Embracing these practices can help ensure long-term success with fly control.
