Fly Control Program Components
- Larval Site Sanitation
- Insect Light Traps
- Biological Control
- Mechanical Traps
- Targeted Treatments
It takes only a small amount of organic debris to attract and support fly populations. Bioremediation is very effective at reducing fly, as well as cockroach and ant activity when sanitation is the source of the issue. A customized bioremediation service can complement your regular cleaning regimen, dramatically improving the results of your pest program. Wil-Kil’s Foodservice Program includes drain treatments, foaming to cleanse hard-to-reach areas and leveraging the natural and non-caustic benefits of good bacteria to digest fats, oils and grease.
Landing Zone Treatments
Flies will instinctively frequent particular landing zones such as walls, window sills and other interior surfaces. Landing zone treatments are invisible to your customers and provide an additional level of defense against fly activity.
Insect Light Traps
Insect light traps (ILTs) are an effective means of controlling most adult fly populations. Providing 24 hours a day protection, they rely on the fly’s attraction to light. Ultraviolet light is used to attract adult flies into the insect light trap that then captures them, using glue boards or electrocuting grids. Proper placement is important to the effectiveness of the trap. Wil-Kil offers a number of insect light trap options. Your IPM Designer will work with you to select the most appropriate model for your restaurants.

When you first think about a fly buzzing around your home, you may dismiss it as an annoyance or you may pause to consider the dangers associated with flies. House flies do in fact spread disease, bacteria and create unsanitary conditions. But there are many different species of flies that can be found in home and cluster flies are one. They are characterized by their distinct stripes behind the head and golden hairs on the thorax. If you can’t tell which type of fly you are seeing by how it looks, you can probably tell by their behavior. Cluster flies are very slow moving and often appear confused compared to the quick movements of the common house fly.
What does your home look like to bugs and rodents? Is it a foreboding place, devoid of even a morsel of food? Or, is it a buffet restaurant filled with every delicacy imaginable? In order to determine this, you have to get down to their level and see the world from their perspective. It might actually startle you how many food sources are littered throughout your home.
