Small Flies, Big Problems

Small flies, such as the Red-Eyed Fruit Fly and Dark-Eyed Fruit Fly, are prolific breeders and develop rapidly.  A few flies can quickly become a full-blown infestation in only a matter of days. They can negatively impact health inspection scores, become bothersome to customers and staff, and may even transfer bacteria to food and food preparation surfaces. Small flies have become big problems, and immediate action should be taken when they are found in your facility.

Our Small Fly Program defends against small fly infestations, addressing different life stages for maximum impact. Your program can include:

  • Thorough inspections to identify breeding, feeding and resting sites
  • Actionable structural and sanitation recommendations to eliminate breeding and feeding sites
  • Breeding and feeding material removal and/or treatment to break the reproduction cycle
  • Adult small fly removal for immediate relief and to prevent future breeding activity
  • Report with recommendations to prevent reinfestation

When you partner with Ecolab you can be confident you are getting innovative, science-based solutions delivered by rigorously trained pest specialists who deliver consistent and precise execution of service protocols; actionable insights to proactively prevent pest risk; customer support 24/7/365; and a strong commitment to customer partnership.
