The drains in your commercial food facility could provide harborage for a wide variety of insects, including cockroaches and fruit flies, for the food sources and shelter they provide. Because these areas are often overlooked, they can become very problematic for Tulsa restaurant owners. To adequately perform the necessary fly control, Xtreme Pest Management proudly utilizes Nisus pest control products, including the TrueTech Power Cart.
Many fly and cockroach infestations originate from floor drains as scum and food begin to line the piping. The adequate moisture content and available food sources provide the perfect, hidden location for these pests to flourish. To combat this, Xtreme Pest Management can provide superior drain cleaning and extermination solutions for your Tulsa restaurant or business affordably and efficiently.
How Does the TrueTech Power Foamer Work?
When drains begin to accumulate organic food materials or clog completely, the introduction of pests is likely inevitable without the proper fly control treatments. To combat this the pest control technicians at Xtreme Pest Management utilizes the TrueTech Power Cart to clean your drains while eliminating any potential pests in the process. This is achieved by mixing a solution of diluted Nibor-D with a foaming agent.
Once the proper mixture is achieved, the pest control technician will begin injecting the foam into your existing drains. The purpose of Nibor-D is to coat the surfaces of the drain to leave a lasting pest control solution to kill any fly larvae or pests that may be feeding on the accumulated scum. Regular treatments of Nibor-D can help limit the threat of pest build up in your floor drains.
If the floor drain is totally clogged or requires extra maintenance, extra assistance may be required by your pest control specialist. Specific cleaning products can be used that utilize non-pathogenic microorganisms to eliminate organic wastes that may have accumulated. In some cases, cleaning brushes or other tools may be necessary.
Potential Pests in Your Floor Drains
Though cockroaches will often utilize floor drains for harborage, the biggest risk for Tulsa business owners is flies. There are many different species of fly that could be developing in your floor drains. Luckily treatments with the TrueTech Power Cart can eliminate them. Potential fly species that may exist include:
- Drain Flies
- Red-Eyed Fruit Flies
- Phorid Flies
- House Flies
- Black Fruit Flies
- Blow Flies
- Flesh Flies
- Little House Flies
The type of flies you are experiencing in your commercial kitchen can vary widely depending on the organic materials commonly found at that location.
