The Fly Lady is selling a solution to insect issues — a fast-acting pyrethrum spray for use in hospitality situations. Effective against a broad range of insects including flies, vinegar flies, pantry moths, even mosquitoes and midges. Efficient in low quantities, it enables the user to leave doors and windows open while keeping their establishments fly-free and their customers seated longer.
The spray units are suitable for use in cafes, restaurants, fishmongers, butchers, bakeries, juice bars, delicatessens, pubs and clubs. One unit covers approximately 30 m, depending on the air movement, range hoods, prevailing breezes, etc. They are effective in bar areas, wet areas and dry stores areas and can be used front or back of house.
To combat vinegar or beer flies, the units are best mounted beneath bar areas where the insects like to breed. The units spray once every 5 min, 24 h/day, for six weeks. They are battery-operated.
Pyrethrum is derived from chrysanthemum flowers. It is safe, natural, virtually odourless. It is human and environmentally friendly. The spray photo-biodegrades, so there is no residue build-up.
The spray complies with Australian and New Zealand Food Safety Standards and local council health requirements. It comes with MSDS paperwork. It is also approved by the Australian Pesticides & Veterinary Medicines Authority and the Australian Quarantine Inspection Service.
