Commercial Pest Control for Flies

Commercial Fly Control

Ecolab fly control and elimination programs help improve food safety and guest satisfaction by tackling the root causes of fly activity using our proven outside-in approach.

Flies are a nuisance that can pose a serious threat to food safety and your business. They can spread diseases such as E. coli and Salmonella and hurt your brand with customer complaints, negative reviews and low audit scores. Ecolab’s commercial fly control, restaurant fly control and food service fly control services can help you stay ahead of fly problems and provide a clean, safe and healthy environment for customers and employees.

Two types of flies - large ("house") flies and small ("fruit") flies. Two different fly control strategies. Not sure whether you have a large fly or a small fly problem? Visit our small fly page to learn more.
