Flying Insect ControlFlying insects can be at the very least a nuisance and often pose a threat to human health. Under laws such as the Food Safety Act 1990, food that is sold must be wholesome and free from contamination and you are required to demonstrate 'due diligence' that you have taken every precaution against contamination from flying insects. In addition, large numbers of flies may be a Statutory Nuisance, under the terms of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
Pests such as flies and wasps are highly mobile and make no distinction between food prepared for our consumption and any other surface that they land on, walk over, defecate on or eat. Many insect species have particularly unsavoury habits and may bite or sting and therefore represent a serious risk. Pestex Services provide the full range of fly control services to help keep your premises clean and safe for people, and compliant with health and safety regulations.
Pestex Services has worked with international fly specialists, carrying out extensive research into flying insect behaviour and biology. From a wide range of fly screens to the latest electronic control units, our highly experienced team delivers effective solutions and services - while removing unescessary costs and disruptions to your business.
The simplest way to keep flies and flying insects from causing problems is by using screens and plastic strip curtain doors - stopping these pests from entering through doors, windows and other access points.
Made from materials including nylon, aluminium and stainless steel - all Pestex fly screens and doors are made to measure, and installed by our trained teams. Our range includes:
• Window screens
• Door screens
• Fly screen mesh curtains
• Plastic Strip Curtains
Fly Control Units To attract, kill and contain flying insects, we supply and maintain a wide range of high-specification, electric high-voltage and adhesive ('sticky board') fly control units. These can be free standing, wall mounted or ceiling suspended.
All models utilise UV light - proven to attract many types of flying insects, and are fitted with tubes coated with food industry compliant FEP fluoropolymer shatterproof coatings.
The range covers small domestic and commercial units through to large, high capacity industrial fly killers. To compliment the design of your work environment, we also offer slim, lightweight models, and units disguised as up-lighters and ceiling lights for maximum discretion.
The adhesive glue board / sticky board units are a food-safe method of controlling and containing flies, as the insects are caught and held on the glue board. The units are good for catching smaller flies and when sited adjacent to food preparation surfaces.
We even have specialist models for wet and dusty areas, designed to combat flying insect pests in moist atmospheres and where there is explosive dust such as sugar and flour - these easy-to-wash units comply with the IP65 electrical rating.
