Fly Control and Bioremediation
Flies can be both a nuisance and a health risk. They have been known to spread illnesses including typhoid fever, cholera, and many others. Most commonly this will happen when a fly lands on human or animal fecal matter, and then later lands on food or in water. In this way bacteria are transferred from the fecal matter to the human via the fly, and it often goes unnoticed. It is important for any business to control flies, particularly food handling establishments, food processing facilities, and food storage facilities.
Using insect light monitors, or fly lights, is an effective method in supplementing a fly solution. These devices not only fit into the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to pest control that Pestech proudly implements, but multitask in that they can be effectively used on pests other than flies. Other mechanical methods to control flies, such as pheromone sticky traps, are also effective to different degrees. Insect light monitors and more are available through Pestech, as well as services on these devices.
An important part of fly control is sanitation. Keeping up with the sanitation needs of your business can stop a fly problem from becoming a real issue. Regularly cleaning garbage cans and dumpsters, making sure that you are using bio-degreasers, and keeping floor drains clean and free of biological build-up are just some of the things that you can do. Pestech offers a variety of products and services in the area of sanitation, making this process even easier on you.
Bioremediation is the use of naturally occurring microbes to digest waste and convert this waste into harmless substances. At Pestech, we utilize this technology by consistently infusing multiple strains of naturally occurring, yet specifically isolated bacteria into drain lines to digest grease and organic buildup before they become problematic.
Benefits of Bioremediation
Bioremediation reduces or eliminates:
- Foul odors
- Slow drain lines
- Blockages and backups
- Maintenance hydro-jetting
- Insect feeding and breeding sites
- Excessive, non-mandated grease trap pumping
Traditional solutions for drain line backup in the past have included plumbers, plumbing, bleach and other sanitizers, and the use of chemicals such as free enzymes and corrosives. These solutions are most, if not all, temporary fixes, and ultimately create complications that must be addressed further down the line.
Pestech’s bioremediation formulas are eco-friendly and do not contain caustic chemicals or free enzymes, which can cause damage to plumbing lines, station equipment and septic systems.
