Flies in your home or business? We offer expert fly control in Surrey
The technicians at Surrey pest control deal with a wide variety of pests. And while many of these are stomach turning, none are as bad as flies. These pests are by far the worst we have to interact with.
There’s a good reason for this. In the pest world, flies are the champions of spreading diseases. These vermin live, breed, and thrive in bacteria rich environments. They are capable of transmitting hundreds of viruses and other conditions. Some of the diseases carried by flies include things like diarrhoea, salmonellosis, gastroenteritis, and even tuberculosis. Not only that, flies can even cause eye infections such as conjunctivitis.
Flies are effective disease vectors
These insects cannot eat solid food. This is why they prefer to feed on decaying matter, such as rotting food and rubbish. When flies encounter solid food they are forced to turn it into liquid before they eat. They do this by regurgitating stomach acid onto that food. The problem is that flies stomach are filled with dozens of varieties of deadly bacteria. And when they vomit on your food, this bacteria is also transferred. In addition to this, flies bodies are covered in bacteria. This can be transferred simply by the fly walking over your food.
It’s really the luck of the draw. If a fly lands on your plate then maybe you’ll be okay. On the other hand, it’s possible that some deadly bacteria may be left behind. Either way you cannot afford to take that risk. If flies are a problem in your home then you must do everything you can to get rid of them. The easiest way to do this is by contacting our team of Surrey Pest Control experts.
Commercial fly control done right
The topic of fly control is extremely important for businesses, especially those in the food industry. Restaurants generate enormous amounts of waste. This often builds up while you’re waiting for the bin men to arrive. Accumulated rubbish will quickly attract swarms of flies. These flies feed on the garbage and lay their eggs. They then multiply at an exponential rate, and do it in only a single day. From there the flies make their way into your kitchen and begin to spread diseases.
If this happens you could end up in serious trouble. In a similar way to having an infestation of cockroaches, an outbreak of flies leading to disease in your businesses may have serious consequences. Customers will get sick and this could ruin the reputation of your establishment. In an extreme scenario, customers may be hospitalised. While this might sound like an exaggeration, it does happen. In fact, deadly salmonella outbreaks happen frequently in UK restaurants. Believe us, this is not something you want to go through. If this occurs you may get in trouble with the authorities and be subject to fines.
