Flies are, and always have been, associated with dirty, unsanitary conditions. And with good reason — one fly has millions of microorganisms in its gut, while half a billion more swarm over its body and legs. Every time a fly lands, it sheds thousands of microbes. If one lands on food or utensils, people may ingest germs that can trigger illnesses such as diarrhea, food poisoning, bloodstream infections, and even meningitis. Unfortunately, they land often which means they can deposit thousands of bacteria each time they land. What’s worse — one pair of flies can produce more than 1 million offspring within a matter of weeks.
As the most trusted name is outdoor pest control, Mosquito Squad knows the importance of maintaining a sanitary environment, especially in commercial settings. We have special treatment methods for eliminating flies in whatever situation you need them. With their very short life cycle (about a week), getting rid of flies is both difficult and tedious — is why misting systems are the most essential and only effective method of your Augusta fly control. Depending on your situation and needs, we employ additional tactics.
Many commonly found flies around the home and in outdoor settings such as barns and wedding venues are susceptible to multiple kinds of flies, but there’s one thing they all have in common — they love to breed on organic matter and animal wastes. From the nuisance of a common house fly to what are known as “stable flies” or “biting flies,” which feed on blood and can give a painful bite, nobody wants them around. If you’re a popular wedding venue such as Pine Knoll Farms, or event space like Old Government House, adding an automatic misting system to your site will keep the environment fly-free, mosquito-free, and of course, your guests much happier and likely to return for future events.
If you have a barn, whether as a venue or that holds horses or other domestic animals, Mosquito Squad’s misting systems are a heavy-hitting and highly effective method of treating mosquitoes, ticks, and flies — especially the biting flies. We can install misting systems both inside and outside the structure, depending on where your concern lies.
Our automatic misting systems release the same specially-formulated, time-released barrier treatment that we use for mosquitoes, which will both eliminate biting insects of all kinds on contact and for three weeks afterward. However, as mentioned previously, the quick lifecycle of flies necessitates frequent application of the formula. Therefore, we program the misting system for your Augusta fly control to release a mist for about 15 seconds at the top of every hour when a system is first installed to combat the existing fly problem, then gradually decrease the frequency to every two hours. Mosquito Squad’s strategic fly control treatments are at least 90% effective.
Ideally, a misting system should have misters over every opening such as doors and windows, to eliminate flies and other insects “in the line of traffic,” but we can and will design the most effective misting system for your situation. Think of this as an “arial defense” for flies and other buzzing insects. And not to worry — our EPA-registered formula is safe for horses and other domestic animals. If there are any concerns, we’ll be happy provide information about our solution so that you can check with your local veterinarian. While we are happy to accommodate with our all-natural barrier treatment formula, please note that it is not as effective as our traditional solution.
Restaurants and food-preparation areas at wedding venues and event spaces often need additional Augusta fly control treatment because of the constant flow of food, food waste, and overall general traffic in the area. But one doesn’t need to have a commercial establishment to benefit from our Augusta fly control treatment — private homes enjoy 90% or more elimination of flies, mosquitoes, and other biting bugs with our misting systems and additional outdoor pest control services as well, such as flea control and tick control, depending on your needs.
“Nothing is made in vain, but the fly came near it.” — Mark Twain, 1927
Similar to our barn fly control strategy, we do treat with a spray or misting system (depending on the situation) around doors and other openings of the establishment. But we take additional measures to ensure as fly-free an environment as possible. The age-old expression "you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar” is true. In addition to spraying around dumpsters, food waste pools, and other areas filthy flies like to gather, we add a granular fly bait that is a sweet enticement for them and eliminates upon contact.
As with all of Mosquito Squad’s products and services, we stand behind our work with the utmost confidence. If you’re not satisfied with your Augusta fly control from us, we’ll give your property an additional treatment or offer your money back.
