Flying insects, such as house flies, bluebottles, blow flies and fruit flies can infest

food premises, particularly during hot weather. They represent a significant risk

as they may carry bacteria on their bodies and feet. Moreover, flies feed through

regurgitating partly digested food and may contaminate food in this way.

In many cases, flying insects, such as flies and bluebottles, lay eggs in food,

particularly meat, resulting in the development of maggots in the food.

Control may be exercised through:

flyscreening of doors, windows and other openings in the fabric of a

building

the use of plastic strips over external doors

the use of ultra violet-emitting flying insect killers

the use of fly-specific insecticides where there is no risk of contaminating

food with same

careful control over refuse and refuse storage areas.
