Treating Cluster Flies in Caravans

Treating Cluster Flies in Caravans

Cluster Flies are a common insect pest found in abundance throughout the UK. They are harmless to people and pets, however, cause an annoying buzzing sound and in large quantities can emit a sickly smell. For these reasons it is advisable to treat quickly and eradicate the infestation. As human beings have encroached on their natural habitat infestation have dramatically increased and caravans are often places cluster flies are known to reside and hibernate through the winter. As Cluster Flies are very small in size they can enter caravans though small holes around window frames, sills, vents, door frames, sky lights, light fittings and other cracks in the exterior of the caravan. Cluster Fly proofing is generally a fruitless gesture, so treating Cluster Flies once they have entered the caravan is the optimal treatment process.

Treating Cluster Flies within caravans can be a simple and effective process providing you have the right tools for the job. At clusterflies.co.uk we specialise in only the highest quality insecticides ensuring rapid knockdown and maintaining control of the infestation moving forward. When treating Cluster Flies in a caravan the first step towards eradication is to use a fumigator, a smoke bomb or fogger, these products work on the principle of filling the volume of a room with a smoke or aerosol knocking down an entire infestation in a matter of hours. Once the population has been eradicated using a reactive measure in the fumigator, residual measures need to be in place to ensure re-infestation does not occur. Spraying Pest Expert Formula ‘C’ around window frames, sills, vents, door frames, sky lights, light fittings and other alighting surfaces will leave a residue of constantly acting insecticide which continues to kill following the initial treatment. If a new colony of Cluster Flies were to enter the caravan following an insecticidal treatment with Formula C, they would come in contact with the residual insecticide which would then kill the flies. In areas where the use of a water-based spray is not feasible, Formula P powder can be used to leave residual protection and prevent re-infestation. Other products such as Rentokil Fly Killer Cassettes are often used to protect key areas such as windows or south facing walls from Cluster Flies. For a period of 12 weeks it emits an insecticide which kills all type of Clustering Flies, ensuring caravans and key areas within caravans stay fly free.

Providing the treatments outlined in this article are carried out thoroughly, eradication will happen and control will be maintained moving forward.
