Fly Control

If you are looking for ways to control flying insects on your premises, CSS Environmental Pest Services can advise and carry out inspections, recommend the most appropriate physical or chemical products and fit and apply them.

We are highly experienced in working in food production and preparation companies, one of the most demanding industries for pest control. We understand all the current legislation surrounding food manufacture and preparation and the auditing regime required by major supermarkets. We have a reporting system that leaves a clear trail of regular inspections and recommendations available to view online 24/7. From pub kitchens to food manufacturing stores, at CSS we have the expertise to deal with your fly problems.

Detailed Reporting including Catch-tray Analysis

If you require counting and identification of the insects found on your premises, we can include Catch-tray Analysis in your regular reports. Inspection of the species found in traps is then carried out by a trained Service Technician and the results recorded and analysed.

This information forms an on-site pest prevention record, which enables you to assess the levels of insect activity each year and is ready for inspection by your third party auditor. It may be used to provide written evidence of ‘due diligence’ as required by the Food Safety Act.

This chart can be included in reports and shows the distribution of common species found in a catch-tray.
This chart shows insects found by location and frequency and relates them to standard tolerance levels. It can be included in your regular reports.

Insect pest species

The most common flying insect pest species in Britain are the House fly, Cluster fly, Blow flies and Fruit flies. The crawling insects that cause the most concern for businesses are cockroaches and ants. Bedbugs are another problem species, mainly confined to residential and hospitality properties, for more information about the CSS Environmental Pest Services bedbug service, click here.

Chemical or physical control methods?

While chemical insecticides can be highly effective, there are many situations where it is not possible to use them due to the risk of contamination, such as food preparation areas. In these circumstances, using barriers, glue traps and electronic fly control units is more appropriate.
