As an all-too-common sight in food service facilities, fruit flies have long been thought to be simply nuisance pests. But new, groundbreaking research from Ecolab Pest Elimination's R&D scientists has shown that this tiny fly can be a significant health threat - on par with the known disease-carrying hazards of the house fly. 

This session will teach you:

1. Difference between large flies (a.k.a. House Flies) and small flies (a.k.a. Fruit Flies)

2. Why fruit flies are present in food-handling facilities including restaurants and food processing

3. Understanding of the biology and habits of fruit flies

4. What risks fruit flies pose to food safety and public health as demonstrated by Ecolab’s research

5. What food-handling establishments can do to help prevent and eliminate them from their facilities.
