Controlling Flies at Your Factory When the Windows Are Open

Controlling flies in a factory can be a tricky task. Read to learn effective ways to control flies, and contact Clegg’s today to schedule service!

800px-Fly_-_MuscidaeRegardless of a factory’s business, from clothing manufacturing to food distribution, employees and products need to be free from bothersome insects. Disease and distraction are two negative aspects of flies infiltrating a factory. If they tend to fly through open factory windows, and installing screens is not an option, there are other ways to stop flies from inviting themselves indoors.

Light Traps

Current theories hold that flies use lights, such as the sun or moon, as navigational aids. You have surely seen flies, mosquitoes and other insects hovering around an outside light on a summer night. Using this theory against flies, add a light trap to your factory’s ceiling or wall. Because it’s often brighter than other lights, flies race to it. The trap has a sticky film, effectively holding the fly indefinitely.

Exhaust Systems

Blowers placed above a window release a lot of air to deter flies. Supermarkets use this machine for doorways, for instance. If you have a limited amount of open windows, the exhaust system keeps all insects out of the factory. It may even add a cooling effect for employees as they move about their work stations. For factories that have food inventory, this system may be worth the investment.

Sticky Traps

Try hanging sticky traps in open windows that are well above the factory floor. These traps attract flies, sticking them permanently to the surface. You will have to replace the trap periodically to keep fly control consistent. There are even spooling fly traps that have a convenient roll of sticky tape. The tape can blend in with the windowsill to make it less obvious to employees or visiting vendors.

Removing Temptation

Keeping your factory clean is one of the best ways to deter flies even with open windows. Keep trash covered and taken out consistently. Any snacks, especially fruit, should be covered or put away. Lunch rooms need to be wiped down right after meals to prevent flies from feasting on crumbs and spills. Flies are attracted to different items, based on their species. While some look for trash items, others prefer fresh fruits. By deterring the flies with no food source, they’ll look for other areas to visit.
