Can flies be a threat to my health?
Flies are considered a public health pest. They are believed by many experts to transmit more food borne illnesses than cockroaches do. The reason for this is that they can transmit bacteria as they land on food. When they feed they spread bacteria onto their new food source, contaminating it. They may also emerge in very large numbers if conditions are correct.
Where did I get flies from?
Flies vary greatly in their preference for a breeding site. They reproduce in everything from pet feces, sewage, dead animals all the way to earth worms. Torn window screens, damaged plumbing, unsealed gaps in the building and even exterior lighting may be sources of flies. Because of this diversity, it is always best to let Viking’s highly trained group of inspectors perform a free inspection to your facility to determine the source of your fly problem.
