Getting Creative with Commercial Fly Control

CommercialKitchenwCatchM logoFly control can be a tricky business. But we don’t have to tell you that. As protectors of public health and business reputations there is a lot at stake and a lot of moving parts to manage in a good fly control program. So how do you manage flying insects in an environment perfectly conducive to breeding these pests? And, do so in a discreet manner? We know you have a lot of tools in your pest management tool box to do just that but we believe that until now there has been a gap in fly control.

How are you currently managing fly breeding hotspots, outbreaks and those hard to treat areas in your commercial accounts?

We have a new tool we are excited to share. One that we believe has been missing in the commercial environment. The SilenTrap™ Flying Insect Trap is a freestanding, plug-in flying insect trap. It’s perfect for knocking down those outbreaks and hot spots in your commercial accounts. It has a discreet and lightweight design allowing it to be easily moved from one location to another.

The SilenTrap™ allows you to control flies in those unique areas that a full-size ILT just won’t fit or isn’t needed for the long-term. There is no bug zapping and therefore no unsanitary clean-up around the unit. Instead, the unit attracts flying pests with its light and then captures them on the glueboard. It was thoughtfully designed to contain any flies that may inadvertently fall of the glueboard. The treatment options are limitless but here are a few ways that the SilenTrap™ can allow you to be creative in controlling flying insects in your commercial accounts:

• For areas where an ILT just won’t fit consider placing the SilenTrap™ near ice machines or floor drains. It fits easily on counters and most surfaces and can be moved around as needed.
• Consider using in areas that may not be well-cleaned or can be difficult to clean such as gaps in or around coolers, drink dispensers, machinery and kitchen equipment.
• The SilenTrap™’s discreet design allows for use on bars, on countertops and other public places where hanging an ILT isn’t possible.
• If you are unsure of the species of fly causing the infestation consider how the SilenTrap™ can assist you in preserving the fly for easy identification.
• Place the units at a height between 6 and 8 feet off of the ground, where flies are most often found.
• Recommend that the client turn out lights after business hours and leave the SilenTrap™ plugged in around outbreaks or fly-prone areas.

As you can see there are many unique and creative uses for this freestanding fly trap. We hope you will consider making it a part of your fly management program. To learn more about the SilenTrap™ visit us online today.
