When it comes to your business, ensuring you have a fly free environment can be essential to passing 3rd party inspection audits. These pests are more than just a nuisance, they may also be a serious contamination risk to food sources. Flies commonly feed on, and breed in, decaying organic material and then land on surfaces throughout your facility resulting in cross contamination.
In order to keep flies out of your commercial space you need to be proactive, and thus avoid any expensive treatments, or newsworthy contamination issues.

Types of Fly Lights
Fluorescent Fly Lights
Fluorescent fly lights have been the workhorse of the industry for decades with the UV bulbs outperforming regular bulbs. This is because UV fluorescent bulbs emit a range of light that is attractive to most flies. Depending on usage, these fluorescent bulbs can last for up to 12 months before needing to be replaced.
LED Fly Lights
Unlike fluorescent bulbs, LED bulbs can be set to a specific UV light wavelength, ensuring a targeted approach for flies and results in a light barely visible to the human eye. LED bulbs are environmentally and economically friendly, as the LED bulbs consume less power, and unlike fluorescent bulbs, do not contain mercury. LED bulbs are also durable and require less maintenance, last approximately 3 years.
Not all fly lights are made equal, as each unit is often designed for specific industries in mind. It is important to understand the different model options available, and their proper placement within your facility in order reduce the fly population. Here are a few fly light placement options you need to be aware of.
Wall Mounted Fly Light Traps
Wall-mounted fly lights are often placed approximately 3-5 feet from the floor, which is the height at which flies typically travel. This type of fly light often works best for commercial businesses in hospitality or healthcare, as these businesses can be more prone to possible fly infestations. As long as the traps are strategically placed, and are far from any food prep stations, wall-mounted fly lights can be effective solution for your business.
Wall Sconce Fly Light Traps
A wall sconce is similar to a wall-mounted fly light, in that it is placed approximately 3-5 above the floor. These fly light traps are more decorative than a traditional wall mounted unit, however, it is a great option for high-traffic public areas, such as restaurant entrances and hospital waiting areas.
Ceiling Mounted Fly Light Traps
Though most flies become inactive at night, ceiling-mounted fly light traps can be a possible discrete option to catch flying pests. These fly lights are generally placed high above to avoid alarming potential customers or workers. For areas with narrow hallways, such as grocery stores, ceiling-mounted fly lights are an ideal option.
Freestanding Fly Light Traps
Freestanding fly lights offer greater flexibility for homeowners and business owners who may need fly control in a number of different areas. These traps are portable and can be moved as needed to the desired area. Extra care should be taken when placing portable traps, as an improperly placed trap can bring unwanted pests towards areas with high foot traffic.
