Insecticide Residual treatments
The flies mentioned above are the most resistant to insecticide sprays and residuals of all flies, which we usually deal with. The Black Eye Fruit Fly will see almost no decline after spraying insecticides. This can apply to both fly spray cans to industrial residual and knockdown treatment.
It is important to bring the target under control in the early stages as if nests become established, they may not be resolved quickly with simple conventional methods and can take several weeks to resolve. EcoSan Solutions has specialised residual solutions to assist with the knockdown and residual control of fruit flies, which can be used as a tool to control these pests.
There are several trapping methods that we can employ to control the number of these irritating insects. UV light traps with specialised light wavelengths attract all types of flies and can successfully control Fruit Flies. Lure traps are also effective and have proven quite popular with our corporate clients.
Various sanitation services may need to be employed to address the eggs and larvae of the Fruit Fly. Where these issues are not addressed, the lifecycle may persist regardless of the insecticide and trapping method. Fruit fly control methods may include the treatment of water drains such as kitchen drain networks and stormwater drains. In addition, appliances and rubbish collection areas may need inspection and improvements.
Larvae control treatment
Products that control the larvae life cycle can be used in areas where nesting where Fruit Flies lay their eggs. These solutions block or interrupt hormones unique to insects morphing stages and prevent larvae from morphing into adult winged insects.
Various screens and sealing methods may be employed to rapidly decrease fruit fly numbers. We have seen huge improvements in difficult to resolve cases by adopting these methods.
