Fly Control for Restaurants and Food Trucks

Learn more about how a professional relationship with a licensed and experienced pest control service company can help improve guest’ experience at your restaurant. In this blog, we tackle fly control in the food service industry so that patrons throughout the greater Austin area can enjoy great food without unwanted pest issues.

Flies and How They Operate

There are several families of flies that are pests at restaurants. Those include:

  •    Fruit flies
  •    House Flies
  •    Bottle Flies
  •    Flesh Flies
  •    Biting Flies
  •    Gnats

Except for biting flies, all the families of flies on this list find food by using their antenna, and that means they are attracted to food – fresh, cooking, cooked, ingredients, and scraps. Biting flies are attracted to movement. There are tools available to help control both types of flies.

Tools that a Quality Pest Control Company uses to Help Restaurants Deal with Flies

Baits and Traps: It helps to understand flies and why they behave the way they do. House flies, flesh flies, and gnats are attracted to specific chemicals that harvested food releases. To us, these are odors, but to a fly, it is a road map of ions that lead directly to the food source. That knowledge is helpful because it allows for the placement of bait and traps that draw flies in where they die.

Mechanical Controls: There are mechanical controls that keep flies out. These involve door guards and air blowers that create an outward force that prevents flies from flying in the door. To a small organism such as a housefly, a brisk flow of air is like a cement wall. They cannot penetrate the force of the air, and they veer to prevent damage to their wings.
