What’s the best way to get rid of flies in your restaurant or food processing (or distribution) centre? The truth is there’s no permanent solution to it. Flies will come back again and again. What you need is a solution that can effectively control the number of flies 24/7.

That’s why extermination using pesticides is only temporary. Some commercial and industrial facilities might require this method (especially if there’s massive infestation). But for the most part, 24/7 control is much more effective.

Why sanitation is not enough?

Aside from extermination, another common approach is complete sanitation. After all, this is getting to the root of the problem. This eliminates the flies’ potential breeding grounds. It’s a more long-term and proactive approach to controlling the number of flies.

However, the neighbourhood or the areas nearby might be heavily infested with house flies. Also, the nearby locations might have dumpsites or aggregated decaying matter. This is the perfect environment for flies to thrive.

It might not be your fault but the flies can still be present in your restaurant or food processing facility. However, you still need to deal with the problem. You need a more permanent and reliable solution.

Why use optimised fly control lamps?

Optimised fly control lamps are more eco-friendly and they offer a more long-term solution. They also operate all through the business’ active hours. Even if the workplace or eating area is fully active, the lamps will also stay active to capture the flies.

Modern lamps now are optimised according to the house flies’ vision spectrum (in the UV-A range, 300-420nm). The sophisticated VECTOTHOR lamps mimic the frequency emitted by natural sunlight. They also emit a continuous light (it doesn’t flicker). This means the lamps can now attract the maximum number of flies.

Many fly control lights now are designed for commercial and industrial settings. Even in slightly higher or lower temperatures, these lamps can work effectively. For instance, the Astron UV-A Lamps are shatter-proof and actually approved for HACCP.
