Pest management, especially for the flying sort, is important to all building occupants. The closer the building function is to food services, the more important it is to the business occupying the building and to the customers.
Did you know flies can travel a mile a day, depositing bacteria every time they land in places such as food processing plants, supermarkets, food preparation and hotel kitchens? Yet, we have all seen the glowing, highly charged bug zappers, and the unsightly result of the pile of lifeless pests that begins to accumulate. The zapper’s results can be as unsightly as the pests’ buzzing activity.
Well, I came across what is not a new idea, but a great idea—decorative bug zappers. These great products zap, capture and hide their deadly work behind a decorative or branded veneer. I see no evil, I hear no evil, and therefore I speak no evil.
Great product, check it out at www.b-onena.com.
