We’ve all been longing for the hot weather and now its finally here! Of course, that means that the flies, bees and wasps are all making a comeback. It won’t be long before flies are getting in everywhere and everyone at Acclaim Environmental will be helping our customers to get rid of flying insects.
Flying Insects carry disease
Flies are one of the most underestimated pests out there in terms of the damage that they can do. With extremely unsavoury habits when it comes to ingesting food, they carry a wide variety of diseases and bacterias that can cause severe illness. Attracted to excrement, they will then seek out human food….which you then inadvertently eat… after they have paddled in poo. Not good.
In fact, flies should trigger the same sort of reaction as you would experience if you saw a rat nibbling your sandwich – you would be disgusted and probably throw your food away. So why do we put up with flies?
Well, flying insects are everywhere for a start off – flies are ubiquitous and always present whereas rats tend to keep out of sight and out of mind. Because flying insects are so common, its a case of ‘familiarity breeds indifference’. We don’t mind flying insects because, most of the time, they cause no problem at all. They buzz past us as we exercise, go to the shops or sit in the garden. But, my goodness, in the wrong places, flies are a complete nuisance. Linked with poor health and poor hygiene, flies are distasteful and can often cause distress and disgust.
Get rid of flying insects
There are a few ways we can keep flies out of your business or home:
So, clearly good quality fly screens are the best, most environmentally friendly method to get rid of flying insects. The best thing about flying insect screens is that they look modern and contemporary whilst ensuring that no flies are actually killed.
Electric Fly Killers are a great investment but you tend to get what you pay for. A £30 machine from Amazon will not be as attractive to flies as a £300 machine. Also, a better quality machine will last you many happy years of insect free living if it is regularly serviced.
Chemical control is effective but we shouldn’t be looking to chemical control as the first line of defence. Chemical control use should always be seen as a last resort.
Non-toxic traps are really good but tend to get rid of flying insects best when they are outside. Internal ones can bequite unsightly.
Acclaim Environmental is a supplier and installer of premium quality insect screening and electric fly machines. If you are having problems with flies in your house and want to get rid of flying insects, why not give us a call and we can advise you.
