Fly Control

Fly Control Services in mid-Missouri

Don’t be deceived by their small size – flies can create huge problems in any food environment! They easily irritate customers, distract employees and can quickly result in regulatory citations. They also carry bacteria as well as disease organisms that contaminate food and otherwise clean environments. On top of all of this, they are simply annoying to have around. When seen flying around businesses, especially restaurants, they usually give that commercial property a bad reputation for having such unwanted guests. Nobody wants to hear a constant buzzing sound in their ear or be distracted by continuously swatting away a pesky fly. to Flies are more than a nuisance, they can damage your brand. Does your business have a fly problem? Steve’s Pest Control can eliminate it with our commercial fly control service.

Flies pose a threat to public health because they carry disease-causing organisms, viruses and bacteria. Flies are linked to the spread of more than 60 human and animal diseases including infectious hepatitis, conjunctivitis and salmonellosis. Fly management is an essential part of disease prevention among humans and animals. This is a job Steve’s Pest Control takes very seriously as it is a matter of public health concern. A fly can carry 4 million bacteria on its body and over 28 million in its stomach. For something that is smaller than your fingernail, it is host to a lot of unwanted substances.

When a housefly lands on food, it vomits on the food. The digestive juices, enzymes, and saliva in the vomit begin to break down and dissolve the food. The fly can then suck up the liquid food with its sponge-like mouthparts and its proboscis. If flies eat food from garbage cans or any other source of germy food, some of those germs stick to the fly’s mouthparts and when the fly vomits on its next snack (your sandwich?), it transfers some of those germs.
