Tip of the Week
As we head into summer, it is more likely you will have the kitchen windows and doors open so get prepared to keep flies and insects out of your kitchen.
Make sure all opening windows are fitted with fly screens and doors that open directly to the outside are fitted with fly chains or a fly screen.
Insecticutors fitted within your kitchen are a vital part of your pest control procedures. Keep them switched on and working, and empty them frequently!
If you don’t want flies in your soup, don’t locate an insecticutor over a food preparation area!
