Midge and filter flies are more than a nuisance to the staff and surrounding neighbors of wastewater treatment facilities. In severe wastewater infestations, flies can alter water quality, clog pipes/equipment, transmit pathogens and generate complaints from surrounding properties. Controlling these pests is essential to keeping a wastewater treatment facility operating efficiently.
By targeting the pests during development, urban and rural water management facilities can rely on Strike® products to achieve effective midge fly management that breaks the pest life cycle and prevents adult populations from emerging.
Some public works water treatment plants chlorinate trickling filters to help kill the flies. Chlorination is a threat to the bio-mass that is crucial to treatment plants. The versatile Strike® product lineup poses no threat to non-target organisms.
Strike® products help keep midge and filter flies under control in municipal water treatment plants and stormwater detention facilities across the country. With a metering system, Strike® applications are made easy, requiring minimal daily maintenance and continually pumping a precise amount of Strike® product to trickling filters, sludge drying beds and ponds.
Strike® Midge Control Liquid is a microencapsulated formulation that is capable of controlling midges throughout an entire facility.
Strike® Ultra is a water-dilutable emulsifiable concentrate that is ideal for treating trickle filters and smaller problem areas.
Strike® Pellets are a convenient option to use where there are extended holding times, and areas can be uniformly and completely treated easily by hand on the basis of surface area.
