Fly Control Services for Homes and Commercial Buildings in the Milwaukee Area

Fly Infestation Food Processing Plant Milwaukee

The professional exterminators at Ehlers Pest Management have extensive experience identifying and exterminating a variety of flies native to Wisconsin. Our fly removal treatment begins with identifying the fly species inhabiting your home or commercial building. Depending on what kind of flies you have, we may suggest organic pest control methods first such as non-toxic traps.

Flies are relatively harmless, but when you have an infestation, they start to pose a threat to you and your family. In great numbers, flies can: 

  • Carry diseases such as salmonella, E. coli and cholera
  • Contaminate food and drink with fecal matter
  • Breed quickly and overrun your property

For larger fly infestations our Milwaukee exterminators may use chemical-based applications to target key problem areas with precision. Before leaving, we will provide you with important tips on how to prevent fly problems in the future, including sanitation, structural exclusion, and environmental modifications. Whatever your fly problem is, our pest control experts can help. Call Ehlers Pest Management today to set up an appointment.
