Fly & Mosquito

Fly Abatement:

If a cockroach were to walk across a customer's table at a restaurant, they would probably leave after creating quite a fuss. But if a fly were to land on a customers plate or a prep area, although still disturbing, it would probably just be shooed away.

Big Mistake!
The fly carries as many insect borne diseases as a cockroach and should be controlled with the same degree of vigilance.

Flies cannot eat solid food, so to soften it up, they vomit on it. Then they stomp the vomit to form a liquid, adding a few germs for good measure. After this they suck it all back up again, dropping some excrement at the same time. And when they've finished eating- it's your turn!

Retail and wholesale establishments, such as yours, need to be aware of this potential source of loss of business, health risk and possible expensive litigation that may ensue.

At Advanced Integrated Pest Management, our unique and effective approach to fly control problems directly tackles the source of fly breeding areas. Grease bins, dumpsters, sewage drains and loading dock areas are just some of the areas that need special treatments against this nuisance pest.

Using state of the art equipment, our company can effectively manage fly populations. Inspection, sanitation corrections, and residual applications can successfully reduce fly infestations. Newly introduced fly attractants, fly baits, and special fogging apparatuses are just a few of the tools we use.

Mosquito Control:

Mosquitoes are more than an annoying, biting insect. Mosquitoes can carry many diseases. West Nile Virus is the most common in our area. West Nile can effect animals (horses, dogs, and cats) as well as humans. They can be deadly to the young and elderly.

Advanced Integrated Pest Management has been on the forefront of mosquito abatement for years, providing effective mosquito control for many locations including golf courses, large office sites, outdoor parks and other venues. We are the first private company to begin an integrated mosquito abatement program. This program is designed to be effective but more importantly low impact to people and their environment.

After a thorough surveillance of your site, we will customize a program to reduce conducive conditions and fit the needs of your business.

Mosquito Facts:

  • All mosquitoes must have water in which to complete their life cycle.
  • Only seven days are required to complete their life cycle (egg to adult) during warm weather.
  • Mosquitoes do not develop in grass or shrubbery, although flying adults frequently rest in these areas during daylight hours.
  • Only the female mosquito bites to obtain a blood meal. The male mosquito feeds only on plant nectar.
  • The female mosquito may live as long as three weeks during the summer or many months over the winter in order to lay her eggs in the following spring.
