Maggot Control is another service we have to offer here at Pest Control Johannesburg. Maggots are all over the place, more prevalent throughout summer months. Maggots are fly larvae and are usually related to a housekeeping or hygiene problem.
Johannesburg Pest Control has all the knowledge and know how to solve any level of maggot problems you may be facing. We treat maggots differently to our competitors. Rather that just treat the Fly larvae, we distinguish the source of the problem. Every fly tells a story as to why its there. The maggots, tell us the species of fly and thus we can root out the source of the problem. We tackle the problem by eliminating the source and then treating the straggler maggots afterwards.
Maggot Control ins and outs.
As mentioned above each maggot tells a story, each fly feeds of different items and could lead us to the source of why you have a Maggot Control issue in the first place. Here are some of the more common maggots Johannesburg Pest Control deal with on a regular basis.
- The Blow fly Maggot (Family: Calliphoridae), this is largest larvae on this list. The Blow Fly, otherwise known as the carrion fly feeds of decaying carcasses. The flies are most common in homes where there may be dead rodents or birds in a roof or basement.
- The Common Fruit Fly (Family: Drosophilidae) They are commonly called Vinegar Flies or Wine Flies, they are a smaller species and maggots are rarely noticed by the untrained eye. These flies frequent bars and pubs with poor hygiene practices. They breed in fruit or sticky liquids such as spilt alcohol.
Do Maggot Control the way its meant to be done.
Here at Johannesburg Pest Control, our Maggot Control Staff double as investigators. We identify the maggot species. Relate it to the Fly and identify the source. We make recommendations on how to sustain control Fly Maggots long term. Treat the Maggots and disinfect the area afterwards.
