Fly Traps Are Safer to Use Than Sprays

Fly traps that use ultraviolet (UV) or pheromones are generally safer to use indoors than conventional space sprays or surface sprays.  There are certain situations that call for the use of insecticide sprays to kill flies but care should be taken before using such products.
When dealing with house flies, cluster flies or other such pests that tend to congregate on large surfaces, a broadcast spray is an ideal pest control method but not all surfaces should be treated in such a manner.  The exterior surfaces of buildings as well as inner and outer surfaces of dumpsters are good examples of places where surface sprays are acceptable in most cases.  Wettable powder formulations such as Cynoff WP and Demon WP are usually best for these jobs.
Broadcasting an insecticide spray over vast areas of indoor, residential walls is simply not good pest control.  When faced with a fly problem, the species of fly and locale of the infestation dictate the desired method of control.

Fly traps are not as invasive to people and pets as are insecticides that when sprayed over large areas create a tremendous amount of airborne particles.  Except for times when faced with Cluster Fly problems, most indoor flies should be controlled by locating and eliminating all possible entry points, locating and eliminating all possible food sources which are also breeding sources.  After these steps are taken you might sometimes find that annoying flies are still a problem in a home or even in restaurants.

Keeping flies out of a structure and limiting foods in which they live, feed and breed is the most important part of fly control.  Restaurants and other commercial food handling areas are constantly fighting infestations of gnats, fruit flies, Phorid Flies, house flies and a host of other flying insects.  These fly problems are not limited to commercial establishments.  Residential buildings are not immune to this problem and such buildings often have to resort to the use of the same high tech fly traps as do businesses. 
These flying pests can be brought into an establishment via regular delivery of supplies.  Once the pests have entered the structure they can easily establish themselves as a constant indoor problem.  Many types of buildings are affected by constant fly problems.  Any building that has elevators will sooner or later see annoying flies buzzing around in rooms and hallways.  Public restrooms also offer a possible breeding ground for flies.

When choosing a fly trap, the size of the area to be covered is very important.  Many of our customers will (in their frustration) purchase an ultraviolet trap that is entirely too large for the job.  In these cases we encourage our clients to use a smaller, less powerful trap or to use a series of traps.  The most powerful indoor fly trap that uses UV powered bulbs is the 80 watt Fly Trap Professional.  This is an ideal device for large kitchens or warehouses where foods are stored or delivered.
Many hospitals and restaurants (as well as other large buildings that have elevators, public restrooms and miles of hallways) should not use the Fly Trap Professional as it overpowers one area with ultraviolet light.  In these cases, the use of a combination of smaller traps is called for.  Restrooms and hallways can be equipped with a combination of Cento Fly Traps and Luralite Fly Traps.  Both of these devices are more desirable for placement in areas where your customers or the public are more likely to be in your building.  These are discreet traps that effectively attract and capture unwanted flying insects, house flies, fruit flies, gnats, etc. but the capture flies are hidden from public view due to the special design of the traps.
The Cento Fly Trap covers areas up to 270 square feet which is perfect for restrooms, break rooms.  Several Cento traps can be spaced apart in long hallways.  When the Cento is not powerful enough to cover your area in question, the Luralite will probably suit your needs.  The Luralite Fly Trap is also designed as a discreet device but it has more powerful than the smaller Cento Trap.  Each Luralite will cover up to 540 square feet.
To see all of the ultraviolet fly traps available for use in homes and business, go to the Ultraviolet Fly Trap page.  All of the traps mentioned here combine the use of UV lighting with strong pheromones to attract flies to their doom.  These particular traps do not kill flies with an electrical grid as do the electronic fly zappers.  These traps use high quality, replaceable sticky capture pads.  Each sticky pad is impregnated with fly pheromones which help attract flies to the trap.  Most flying insects found indoors are attracted to ultraviolet but there are a few exceptions.  The most common fly that is not always effected by UV is the vinegar fly - but this fly is lured to the traps that contain the special fly pheromone.
