Food Processing

Although midge flies are small, they pose a major threat to food processing plants. Food processing plants – especially meat and poultry processors – offer midge flies the food, shelter, and water that they seek. Not only a nuisance to daily operations, the pests can contaminate the product in the facility, making it inedible and unsafe for human consumption.

In order to remain productive and profitable, it is critical to avoid costly recalls, fines and complete shutdowns from regulators. Fly contamination can be detrimental to quality assurance reviews. Strike® products can be applied without affecting water quality for controlling fly infestations in food processing plants and food manufacturing facilities.

With regular applications of Strike® products, you can manage the problem at its source and prevent midge flies from contaminating product and compromising health inspections.
