Fruit Flies are a problem for every Correctional Kitchen. While Fruit Flies are primarily nuisance pests, they also have the potential to contaminate food with bacteria and other disease-producing organisms so it’s important to get rid of them – but it’s not easy! Fruit flies are especially attracted to ripened fruits and vegetables in the kitchen. But they also will breed in drains, garbage disposals, empty bottles and cans, trash containers, mops and cleaning rags. All that is needed for development is a moist film of fermenting material. Infestations can originate from over-ripened fruits or vegetables that were previously infested and brought into your facility. The adults can also fly in from outside through inadequately screened windows and doors.
Whenever we’ve talked with our correctional customers, they most often find them in floor drains, kitchen sinks and in hard to reach areas like “behind trash cans”. But we’ve got a solution for you!
The Fruit Fly Fighter product line from Defender will eliminate your fruit fly population, even in all those hard to reach places that they like so much! It is available an easy to use Fruit Fly Fighter Starter Kit or in the concentrated liquid only. Once you have any existing fruit fly populations eradicated, you can use the Sink Defender to keep your drains fresh and to prevent fruit flies from coming back. Sink Defender comes in tablets which go in a plastic holder that you insert into your floor drain and sink, or in an easy-to-use spray bottle, that you can spray onto all non-food contact locations. These commercial chemicals are effective, but also environmentally friendly. Both the Fruit Fly Fighter and the Sink Defender are made from proprietary, bacteria based, eco-friendly product.
Everyone knows how annoying fruit flies can be. They cause kitchens to become very unsanitary. What’s great about the Fruit Fly Fighter is, that it is Eco Friendly for the environment, made from a bacteria based concentrate that helps wage war on dirt, grime and grease, which attract our fruit fly friends into the commercial kitchen.
