Flies

There are more than 120,000 species of flies worldwide. Most flies live an average of 21 days and take on various shapes throughout their short lives. Baby flies are called larvae but they are also known as maggots.

“These insects have been known to carry over 100 different kinds of disease causing germs.”

Things you should know about flies:

Flies spread diseases such as Typhoid fever, cholera, bacillary dysentry, hepatitis, polio and TB

 

The life expectancy of a fly is anything from 8 days to 2 months or can be up to a year

 

One pair of flies can produce more than 1,000,000 off spring in 6 to 8 weeks

 

They spread disease because they move quickly from rotting food to exposed waste, then to food and utensils

 

Because they have two wings, they have to land often and deposit thousands of bacteria every time they land

 

For every fly seen, there are approxiamtely 19 hidden

 

We have different styles of Electronic Fly Killers (EFK’s), the most modern product is a Glue board style product, that contains a blue ultraviolet light tubing which attracts the insect, thus then sticking to the glue board.

The glue board is changed on a x4 frequency.

The benefits of a glue board style EFK compared to a “Zapper” style EFK is that the insect does not fragment upon entering the EFK.
