Flies are disgusting! They carry dozens of diseases, lay eggs everywhere, and they’re annoying. Nobody likes it when they are buzzing about — especially customers. Let’s shine a spotlight on fly control and look at ways to get rid of this pest.
Flies require specific conditions to create an infestation. You can stop the infestation cycle by reducing or eliminating these sources:
- Light Source — a place to gather and meet up with other insects
- Warmth — a place to be able to live longer
- Food Source — a place to eat and drink
- Reproduce — a way to bring on new insects
In food and drinking establishments, fruit flies may come already inside produce containers. Once they enter a facility they go directly to sink drains where there is a food source attached to the insides. Houseflies come through entry doors and drive-thru windows. They immediately head towards a light source such as exterior windows and light fixtures.
The last thing you want for your customer is to eat with one hand while shooing away flies with the other. It’s time to take action before you lose customers.
Fruit flies and houseflies present in commercial kitchens visit trash containers. Then they land on food prep surfaces, cooking utensils, and dishware. Contamination is then transferred to those preparing and eating the food. Customers and employees appreciate a fly-free area.
A business loses customers when they perceive they are getting sub-standard service. Fly infestation immediately adds to this negative perception. On average, a dissatisfied customer will tell a negative experience to ten other people. Each time they tell their story it gets embellished a little more. By the time the tenth person hears the story, it can have morphed into an extreme exaggeration. The great news is customers will return if the business takes care of their fly problem.
