fliesFlies are a very common problem in Auckland over the summer months and homes need to be mist sprayed to reduce the number coming into the house and kill those that land on sprayed surfaces.

AAA Pest Control Ltd uses a misting gun which is similar to a large aerosol to deposit a fine film of spray onto walls, ceilings and window frames as well as spraying around the outside of the house.

The spray used varies from year to year as flies can build up a resistance to a spray over time as those with a natural resistance to a particular type of spray are the ones who survive to breed the next year. The chemical supply companies are aware of this and bring out new chemicals from year to year.

Currently AAA Pest Control is using a chemical called Strike Out which is a Cypermethrin with 200 gms of active ingredient per litre of concentrate. This is a broad spectrum pesticide which is much more concentrated than most others available such as the Deltamethrins which are only 25 gms of active ingredient. The more concentrated the spray the longer it lasts.

All the sprays used have a wide spectrum of activity and will place a barrier to most other insects such as ants, cockroaches and in particular white tail spiders which are quite venomous and can deliver a nasty bite. These spiders are becoming more and more common in Auckland and are attracted by the common house spider that they hunt for food.

Normal precautions need to be taken when the house is treated such as covering all foodstuffs, removing all animals from the house and making sure that fish tanks are well covered and the pump switched off.

The house needs to be vacated for up to three hours after spraying to allow even the finest spray particles to settle out of the air. On re-entering the house it should be well ventilated for several hours.
