Insecticide Residual treatments
The flies mentioned above are the most resistant to insecticide sprays and residuals of all flies which we normally deal with. The Black Eye Fruit Fly will see almost no decline at all after spraying insecticides. This can apply to both fly spray cans to industrial residual and knock down treatment.
It is important to bring the target under control in the early stages as if nests become established they may not be resolved easily with simple conventional methods and may take several weeks to resolve. Eco San Solutions has specialised residual solutions to assist with knock down and residual control of these flies which can be used as a tool to control these pests.
There are several trapping methods which we can employ to control the numbers of these irritating insects. UV light traps with specialised light wave lengths to attract these fly types can be very successful in isolating 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 continue to persist despite insecticide and trapping method. Sanitations may include treated water drains such as kitchen drain networks and also storm water drains. Appliances and rubbish collection areas may need inspection and improvements.
Larvae control treatment
Products which control the larvae life cycle can be used in areas of nesting where Fruit Flies lay their eggs. These solutions block or interrupt hormones unique to insects morphing stages and can prevent larvae from morphing to adult winged insect.
Various screens and sealing methods may be employed to achieve fast improvements to fruit fly numbers, in some cases we have seen huge improvements in difficult to resolve cases by adopting these methods.
