Flying insects cause a nuisance for businesses round the world. They’re an expensive problem. With over 120,000 species of flies spreading over 200 different pathogens worldwide, there is clearly a significant risk to businesses. Flies can carry diseases such as Salmonella and E. coli – and due to their lively lifecycles, a small fly problem can very quickly become an infestation. Such health risks can impact your customers, staff and productivity and cause reputational damage to your trade.

“Good fly control is essential for every business as flies are capable of transmitting a wide range of pathogens and are one of the most likely insects to cause damage and disruption to a business. To lessen the risk of fly infestations, the quicker flies need to be eradicated. The Lumnia range has a sleek, modern design that is ideal for any environment, and although discreet, also demonstrates the commitment a business has to hygiene.”

Mark Reader, Group Category Director Rentokil Initial

Having a flying insect infestation may mean the following:

  • Absence of staff and loss of productivity due to the spread of diseases.
  • Customers may become ill, meaning loss of reputation and, therefore, trade.
  • Contaminated products mean potential loss of earnings, reputation and future business.
  • Increased complaints from customers.
  • Business may be prosecuted or fail audits.

With so much at risk, it’s important that measures are taken to prevent fly infestations from impacting your business. But how do you combat an infestation? The Lumnia range from Rentokil provides commercial fly control solutions designed to effectively and hygienically attract, kill and encapsulate flies. It’s the insect light trap (ILT) of choice.
