Flies are not only a nuisance but can also be a constant health threat in any given environment. Due to their breeding and feeding habits, flies are unsanitary insects that have the potential to contaminate food and other materials with germs and bacteria. Flies spread disease and are capable of transferring more than 100 pathogens and contaminating food as they travel causing food poisoning and even respiratory infections. These pathogens can include E. coli, salmonella, shingles and tuberculosis.
It is important to control flies within your business to give your employees and customers peace of mind, not to mention protecting your reputation.
Our fly control programs are built on the principles of integrated pest management and use science based approaches to control active fly populations, and prevent future occurrences. We identify root causes of the problem and address them with long-term solutions.
How Orkin Canada Controls Your Fly Problem
Insect Light Traps (ILTs)
Flies are attracted to UVA wavelengths within the light spectrum. The insect light traps Orkin Canada uses are specifically developed to optimize fly catches in the quickest amount of time and are the best performing lights on the market. Insect light traps can control a portion of the fly population (some of the adults), but they are not effective as a standalone strategy. A complete fly control program must also source out, and eliminate, any fly breeding areas – this is where your highly trained Orkin Canada technician comes in.
Depending on the fly species, your Orkin Canada technician can utilize fly bait as part of an overall control strategy. Fly bait can be used in stations to provide a subtle and effective way to control flies in, and around, your place of business. Baits can be applied in non-food/non-feed areas of commercial food handling establishments, dining areas, storage facilities, schools, hospitals, long-term care facilities, offices and buildings at marinas; as well as inside dumpsters and other waste containers. These powerful fly attractants combined with their knock down active ingredients ensure immediate results with residual protection in and around your facility.
Contact & Residual Treatments
When a fly population has been left unchecked their sheer numbers may require a quick knockdown with a contact insecticide. As part of an overall program, especially during the peak fly season, residual liquid treatments may be used to help eliminate, and prevent fly populations, around the exterior of your business, fly breeding areas, and resting spots.
Habitat Modification / Odour Control
Orkin Canada’s proprietary non-toxic formula uses naturally occurring enzymes and beneficial bacteria to help break down the organic matter flies use as a breeding medium. In addition to reducing breeding substrate, it also helps to eliminate fly-attracting odours in garbage disposals, drains and other waste areas.
The Orkin Canada Fly Control Solution
Orkin Canada’s fly control programs are industry leading, backed by science, and performed by highly trained professionals. Our expert technicians will create a customized fly control program tailored for your specific business.
Step 1: Assess
Your Orkin Canada technician will perform a thorough assessment of your facility to determine the species of flies present and to identify breeding and feeding spots (the root cause of any fly problem) and how they gained access into your facility or business.
Upon completion of the assessment, your technician will thoroughly document the findings and provide you with an inspection report outlining problem areas, a fly control strategy, and recommendations for long term solutions to help prevent flies from returning.
Step 2: Implement
Based on the assessment results, your Orkin Canada technician will develop a comprehensive control program to best address your fly problem. The program can include one or more of the following strategies:
Insect Light Traps
Industry leading light traps, backed by science and research, will be used to attract adult flies. As part of an overall fly program this will aid in breaking the breeding cycle. They also provide a means of determining the effectiveness of the overall program.
Fly bait provides a subtle and effective way to control flies in and around your commercial business.
Contact & Residual Treatments
Contact and residual treatments are primarily used to eliminate larger fly populations.
Habitat Modification / Odour Control
Orkin Canada’s proprietary enzyme based solution breaks down the organic matter that flies breed in. In addition, it helps control any odours that may be attracting flies.
Step 3: Monitor
After the treatment is complete, your Orkin Canada technician will document the services and continue to monitor the program via trend analysis and regular follow-up visits to ensure your fly problem is solved.

Our technician is awesome. Thanks for making the transition easy. Love the metrics and transparency of the program.
Our technician was very informative and took the time to explain the problem I was having with rodents and how they react to Orkin's product. His personal care made my situation so much easier.
Our representative is very informative and quickly goes about his work. I am very pleased with his explanation for placing bait stations where he did and so on. Sometimes it is hot and he carries right on with what he has to do. It is a nasty job.
