Fly Control

Fly Problem at Police Force Offices

Large Fly Infestation at High Security Offices

NBC were contacted following reports of a large fly infestation within high security offices.
NBC attended site and confirmed an infestation of Cluster Flies (Pollenia)

Due to the nature of the client and the very high security levels, carrying out any works were very challenging.

Cluster flies  in particular flies are a nuisance because they live a long time. In fact, most other flies live less than three months. Cluster flies, however, can live for two years or more. To endure the harsh Winter, they will hibernate. Appearing in spring, cluster flies will begin to lay eggs outside and will hibernate in your premises nearing Winter, around August time.

Our Solution

NBC Environment provided the client a programmed solution of control measures as follows:

  • Spraying treatment against cluster flies including an application of insecticide and wiping down of window frames followed by one visit per month from November through to March (during cluster fly season to deal with any that have hibernated). This treatment was to address the initial infestation levels in the various offices.
  • NBC installed 2 electronic fly control devices to further control any future infestations which take place during the cluster fly season.
  • NBC provided the client with a regular maintenance & servicing programme of the installed electronic fly control units to ensure effective control measures are maintained.
