Choose Acorn’s Professional Fly Exterminators
Flies are one of the most likely causes of reputational damage to a business. There are 120,000 species worldwide that pose a health risk to humans, pets, livestock, and goods. Flies can carry diseases such as Salmonella and E. coli — and a small fly problem can very quickly become an infestation. Such health risks can impact your customers, staff, productivity and cause reputational damage to your trade.
Take control of your fly problem
At Acorn, we employ several methods of eradicating infestations depending on species.
Usually the most effective treatment consists of a fogging treatment or fumigation.
We also use smoke treatments. Other methods include spray and powder chemical applications.
The Acorn team are highly qualified and accredited with company accreditations including SafeContractor, CHAS, Construction Line, NPTA and SSIP.
The majority of staff members also hold CSCS Cards, Atlas Citation Training certification and all works follow a site-specific risk and method statement (RAMS).
All chemicals used by Acorn Environment Services staff are COSHH risk assessed by our Health and Safety department and stored in a locked facility at our property.
Once the works are completed a detailed post-treatment report with photographic evidence will be provided.
