Restaurant and commercial kitchens must be kept clean for the safety of everyone. Unfortunately, common kitchen problems include flies and other pests. Flies transmit diseases such as Typhoid Fever, Shigellosis, Escherichia coli and Cholera. Additionally, they also carry 100 pathogenic organisms. Most importantly, keep food sealed and properly stored since flies feed on fruit, vegetables, and fermented liquid. If you serve contaminated food, you’re putting diners at risk. For a pest-free kitchen, reach out to Raven Termite and Pest Control. We are your number one choice when you need an exterminator in Germantown, or elsewhere in Montgomery County.
How to Keep Flies Away
There are steps you can take to keep flies away. First, find and eliminate any pupae and larvae in garbage or waste disposals, dirty drains, or sewage. During the day find them in ceilings, interior surfaces, walls, and garbage cans. At night, look for flies resting on cords, ceilings, or electrical wires. Always keep outside areas clean and as odor-free as possible to discourage flies. To prevent flies from traveling indoors, keep doors closed at all times. Secure screens on the windows near the waste area and kitchen. Finally, avoid leaving pails of water around after you’ve mopped and keep your kitchen dry and clean at all times. While also following those tips, you should call a professional exterminator for regular treatments.
