Eliminate Fly Infestations

Flies are an environmental health hazard that must be controlled. The Busters Group can help you to eliminate an infestation and help prevent flies from entering your business or home.

There are over 7,000 species of flies in the UK, ranging from the largest “daddy-long-legs” to the smallest owl moth, which is no bigger than a pinhead. While varied and interesting, flies present a health hazard that cannot be ignored. A fly infestation can bring your business grinding to a halt, so we provide effective fly control measures that can remove a fly infestation and stop it from returning.

If you need to get rid of flies in your home or business, The Busters Group are here to help. Our expert team can help to identify and eliminate your pest problems while implementing measures to prevent them from returning.

Electric fly control units for food and beverage

Keep your restaurant or food preparation area free from stray flies with the help of an electric fly control unit. These low-powered and whisper-quiet units will attract and eliminate any flies which bypass your additional measures. This is a highly effective way to ensure your food preparation area remains free of flies. These can also be placed near refuse storage to keep flies under control. Electric fly control units are ideally placed in a home or business near fly breeding sites. By getting rid of adult flies, you reduce the chance they will lay eggs and this will often put an end to your fly problem. This is the ideal long term solution for pest control.

Effective fly control measures

Flies can spread salmonella, cryptosporidium and e.coli. If left untreated, a fly infestation can quickly get out of control. Flies lay their eggs in rotting organic material, so food waste bins are an attractive breeding ground. Flies around bins are a common sight, but how do you stop them from getting indoors? We supply and install fly screens and protection curtains on doors and windows to help keep flies outdoors where they belong. We supply and install bespoke fine mesh screens with aluminium frames. These frames will allow you to let fresh air in without inviting flies in at the same time. A door fly screen or plastic sheet curtain will allow staff to come and go without the risk of allowing flies inside your premises. Indoors, we can provide fly strips, electric fly control units or insecticide solutions to remove active infestations.

If you need help to get rid of flies in your home or business, connect with us today. Our team has over 20 years of experience getting rid of all types of flies, including house flies, fruit flies, insect removal and everything in between. You don’t have to be able to identify the fly species to know that you want it out of your property. We’ll help to identify popular breeding sites where flies like to lay eggs so you can also reduce the risk of adult flies returning.

Comprehensive decontamination cleaning

With the infestation taken care of, deep cleaning is often required to remove all traces of the flies, larvae and maggots. Skipping this important step may allow the infestation to return. We can provide one-off or contract deep cleaning to help keep your business free from flies and other pests. Without proper cleaning, your property is still at risk even after the flies are removed. Until everything has been thoroughly cleaned, there is still the risk that bacteria and pathogens could be spread.

Frequently asked questions

A fly problem can cause health issues for anyone sharing their space with the flies. Flies are known to spread diseases and infections. Humans and animals are at risk of infections like E. coli, cholera, conjunctivitis, salmonellosis and tuberculosis. House flies spread diseases through indirect contact with humans and animals. Their feeding habits and breeding habits are the main cause for concern.

Flies feed on decaying organic material including human and animal faeces. They ingest dangerous pathogens and then move around, landing on household items. When they land on solid food, they cannot chew it, so instead they regurgitate a liquid of enzymes and saliva to break down the food. This will also contain traces of anything the fly has feasted on before. This leads to contamination and the spread of disease.

Anything a fly lands on has the potential to contain bacteria and pathogens from rotting waste and excrement. This is why flies are a serious health hazard and their presence is not welcome in food preparation areas. Even flies landing on items such as cutlery or glasses can be a hazard to health. Flies are also covered in small hairs, so they have the potential to spread pathogens anywhere they land, even if they aren’t feeding.

The only way to eliminate the risk of contamination is to remove the flies and prevent them from returning. If you need to get rid of flies on your property, The Busters Group can help with a pest removal plan that will also help to prevent the pests from returning.

Flies are one of the most obvious pest infestations as you will clearly see them flying around and landing on surfaces.

  • House flies are large, black flies that are often seen around bins and other sources of decaying organic matter.

  • Fruit flies are attracted to decaying food and may breed around compost bins.

  • Cluster flies are grey with yellowish-golden hairs. They often appear in spring and autumn in swarms. They typically breed outdoors but are attracted indoors by the warmth.

  • Blowflies are large with a glossy body and are often green and red.

  • Horse-flies are large with a dark body. The females are capable of delivering a nasty bite.

  • Bluebottles are dark blue in colour and may find their way into your property if there is a dead animal such as a rat or mouse hidden.

Even if you don’t know the source of the infestation, we can help to identify and eliminate pests from your home. Contact us today to request a callback.
