Customer Preparation

  • Please be prepared to show the technician all potted plants. For interior treatments, all people and pets need to be out of the home for 1 hour. The treatment can take 2-3 weeks to take care of infestation
  • Sanitation Tips: The large battle when dealing with any type of fly is removing their habitat. Residual treatments will not prevent reproduction but removing preferred conditions will. They are often found around trash cans, dumpsters, rotting corpses, and general filth. Until these issues are dealt with, the fly infestation can not be controlled.
