The strong aromas that often come from bakeries and other businesses in the food industry not only attract customers, those wonderful smells appeal to annoying flies as well. Regardless of their small size, flies are a big problem for the food service industry in Seattle, Portland and throughout Washington, Oregon and the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain regions. Sprague Pest Solutions realizes the threat this pest poses to companies and that is why we offer our effective commercial fly control program.
Why Worry About Flies?
In any facility that prepares and/or serves food, the conditions are ideal for a fly infestation due to the unlimited availability of food and moisture. In environments such as restaurants, hospital kitchens, food manufacturing plants and school cafeterias, flies not only annoy customers, employees and students; they are a sanitation issue and pose serious health risks. Flies are known carriers of several diseases including malaria, typhoid and cholera. They pick up these pathogens on their feet when they feed on decaying organic waste and then when they land, they transfer those pathogens from their feet to the food and food prep areas of many food service and manufacturing facilities.
