Ecolab Introduces STEALTH Fusion Fly Light to Help Enhance Food Safety for Foodservice Operators
Captures up to two times more flies than traditional indoor fly lights

May 17, 2013

ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ecolab introduces the STEALTH® Fusion Fly Light, a proprietary addition to Ecolab Pest Elimination's industry-leading Large Fly Program that combines the company's patented fly light and award-winning STEALTH Fly Station technology into one best-in-class solution for eliminating large flies indoors.

"Large flies can easily transmit common pathogens such as Salmonella and E. coli, so the presence of large flies inside a restaurant is a threat to food safety," said Dr. John Barcay, senior scientist and urban entomologist for Ecolab Pest Elimination. "Ecolab is committed to providing proactive and discreet fly elimination solutions, and the STEALTH Fusion Fly Light is an effective solution to help prevent large flies from impacting foodservice operations."

Ecolab Pest Elimination's Research, Development & Engineering team developed the STEALTH Fusion Fly Light after extensive testing of fly behavior to better understand how flies adjust and react to different types of stimuli. It is a dark, reflective device that uses multiple stimulating characteristics to attract and eliminate flies inside a facility before they can become a problem. When placed near common fly areas in field testing, the light has been shown to capture up to 170 percent more flies than a standard fly light.

The STEALTH Fusion Fly Light will be featured at the Ecolab booth — #4000 — at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show, May 18-21, at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Other recent Ecolab Pest Elimination innovations include the STEALTH® Fly Station, STEALTH Maxima® Fly Light, CheckPoint® Interior and CheckPoint® Exterior Rodent Stations, and Finito™, a ready-to-use solution for food contact surfaces.
