Win the Fight Against Cluster Fly Flight

With Cluster fly season approaching, the question on everyone’s mind is, “How to protect home and business from Cluster fly? Aka: Pollenia rudis (roughly meaning “rude dust”). The answer to winning the fight against Cluster fly flight is a potent combination of prevention, early detection, and applying the most advanced technology available on the market. Discover how to swat the Cluster fly problem with the incredible features of the Mantis® range of light traps, an essential component of a modernized pest control strategy.

Getting acquainted with the adversarial Cluster fly is the initial step in formulating an unbeatable strategy. Remember, these pesky flies are slightly larger than the average House fly and present distinctive yellowish-golden hairs on the thorax. When at rest, wings fold atop the abdomen, which possesses a distinct checkered pattern. When emerging on warm winter days, flight is somewhat lethargic and erratic.
Fortify with exclusion techniques before the fly invasion. Repair damaged fly screens and seal potential entry points such as windows, doors, gaps, cracks, and crevices with high-quality sealants and weather-stripping materials. Shut down every potential entry point-a defense line that gives no quarter to invading flies. Remember, the best fly control offense is a good fly control defense!
