Did you know? Flies have been known to fly as far as 20 miles to find food? Water is essential to a fly’s diet and they can’t normally live without it for more than 48 hours.
Flies are common nuisance in any food preparation area. Typically found in food and water source related areas such as kitchen and canteens, flies are capable of disease spreading such as cholera, dysentery, polio and typhoid. They carry disease-causing organisms on their bodies, body hairs, feet and mouthparts and spread these organisms by dropping faecal matter onto food. Insect control is imperative.
House fly, tends to breed in warm and moist or decaying matter and are major carriers of diseases. Thus, they will feed largely on variety of food, including human food, animal feeds, garbage and excrement. Ensuring good housekeeping habits, store food appropriately, clear rubbish and garbage diligently with a lid cover on constantly are some first level of basic measures to upkeep before flies starts to get attracted to their food source.
Fruit fly, on the other hand, breeds in unclean drains or cleaning utensils and feeds on ripe fruits, vegetables, and fermenting products. These are commonly found and prepared in a kitchen or canteen. Storing food away appropriately, avoid leaving food waste in the open, or stash of unclean and soiled utensils stacking up in the wash basin for hours could potentially invite food source opportunity for these flies.

They transmit diseases that may cause food poisoning symptoms and they can stain surfaces or fabrics that they come into contact with. Ants and cockroaches are most commonly found in kitchen, pantry and canteen areas
