The source of a fly problem can be established by inspecting the glue board and by identifying what species of flies have been caught. Every species of fly has a different habitat in which they live and breed.
For example, house flies breed around garbage areas, therefore when house flies are caught on a unit then it can be established that there needs to be a clear-up of garbage in or around the facility. Likewise, the presence of fruit flies caught on the glue board signify rotting or over-ripened fruits and vegetables in the facility which need to be cleared to get rid of the fruit flies.
This directly relates to the level of food hygiene in a premise.
Insect Light Traps (ILT’s) with Glue boards provide this capability.
