Kill Sewer Flies
Sewer flies are often called drain or moth flies. They thrive in moist areas that are rich in organic materials. That is a perfect description of a sewer.
Sewer flies thrive in the rich organic materials in your sewers. They also will live in your drains and pipes, where the moisture provides a fertile breeding ground. They look something like a moth, with furry bodies and wings. As the sewer flies climb out of the drains and sewers, they carry contaminants on their furry bodies. They then swarm around moist or fermented areas in your home or business, creating an unhealthy climate for humans and pets. They swarm to any moist surface, including pets’ eyes and any other damp area in your home.
Every time a sewer fly lands on a damp sponge, a wet bar towel, or a piece of fruit, they spread contamination from the sewer onto that surface.
And adult sewer fly will live for about a month. During that time, they can lay thousands of eggs in the low-oxygen, nutrient rich sewer and drain lines in your home or business. They can be very resilient, even surviving temperature changes that often can freeze pipes.
Steam Vs. Chemicals
Chemicals are often used to kill sewer flies. The chemicals will poison the flies and their larvae. However, the eggs remain unscathed by chemicals, and will hatch within the month, creating a new swarm and infestation that must be dealt with.
Steam, however, offers a much better solution. Our steam device seals to your drain, and injects high-temperature steam into the drain. The temperature is maintained long enough to kill all of the eggs, as well as the mature flies and their larvae. By killing the eggs with high temperature, the reproductive cycle is broken, and the sewer flies are eliminated.
While the flies may return at a later time, it will be a new colony seeking breeding grounds. You can simply repeat the treatment as needed to remove the pests from your home or business.
Steam treatment of sewer flies is also eco-friendly. There are absolutely no chemicals involved with steam treatment. There is no odor, either, which makes it a great alternative for people with allergies, and for businesses such as restaurants and bars.
