We've curated one of our previous blogs: Got flies? Five hot spots for fly activity in food processing facilities into a bite sized infographic which will assist you in recognizing fly hot spots, and how you can mitigate the problem.
It’s not news that flies are one of the most annoying pests you can encounter and the knowledge that they use faeces, garbage and dead animals (amongst other disgusting filth)for reproductive purposes only heightens our abhorrence of them.
