How to repel flies

Flies can be a nuisance pest for businesses. A fly infestation could pose a serious health risk as flies are known to spread a range of diseases, such as Salmonella and E.coli.

If you want to prevent flies, there are some practical steps you can take to deter them. The recommended steps involve making changes indoors and outdoors to cover all potential hot spots and ensure effective fly control. Many of these methods are totally cost-free and only require your time to action.

  • Deny flies access - keep windows and doors closed.
  • Flyscreens - fit flyscreens to windows, especially around kitchen and waste areas.
  • Cover food - flies spread diseases by landing on food before we eat it.
  • Clear away - clear food debris and liquid spillages from food consumption and preparation areas and under kitchen appliances.
  • Trash bins/compost bins - ensure all waste containers have tightly sealed lids.
  • Clean up dead flies - leaving them behind provides a snack for other pests such as carpet beetles.
  • Water barrels - cover these with well fitting lids.
  • Clean drains - ensure drains are kept clean and free of debris to reduce fly breeding sites.
