Zap Away Your Resort’s Pest Problems: Flowtron Bug Zappers to the Rescue!

Say goodbye to pesky bugs at your resort with a little help from Flowtron!

Picture this: You’ve just arrived at your resort, set your bags down, and are ready to settle in when, out of the corner of your eye, you see it – mosquitoes. Flies. Gnats.

We’ve all been there, and we all know that nothing can put a damper on your vacation quite like a pest problem.

And, if you’re a resort manager, the threat of insect infestation is even greater. If your property becomes home to swarms of insects, you’ll get complaints, low ratings, and fewer bookings.

Pests can pose a serious threat to your hotel’s reputation and your livelihood. And resort hotels have an increased risk of infestation because there are several points of entry – the surrounding environment, food shipments, and guests themselves can all bring pests into your facilities.

So, how do you target this problem so guests can enjoy a pest-free stay? With a little help from Flowtron, experts in insect control since 1974 and makers of the best bug zappers for resorts.

Consider Your Surroundings

The first step in effective pest control for resorts is to consider how insects might enter the property from the surrounding environment. Make sure your grass, shrubs, and even parking lots are free of weeds and standing water to prevent insects from living too close to your property.

Drain any standing water, as this can become a breeding ground for mosquitoes, and keep up with proper weeding, fertilizing, and watering habits to keep pest populations in check.

Of course, the best way to keep insects off your surrounding property is with a Flowtron Outdoor Bug Zapper for resorts.

These powerful bug zappers work with a unique combination of UV light and octenol attractant to effectively lure bugs up to 2 acres away. Once bugs come in contact with the patented 5600V killing grid, they are instantly killed and fall to the ground for natural reabsorption into the ecosystem.

Thanks to their unobtrusive design and lack of pesticides, these eco-friendly bug zappers for resorts are a great way to keep the bugs at bay without bothering your guests.

Keep an Eye on the Kitchen

The kitchen is an especially sensitive area when it comes to resort bug control since insects are attracted to the food and often arrive on incoming packages.

As such, kitchen staff should make sure to check all incoming packages and clean all food that comes into the facility. Similarly, all ingredients should be kept in a cooler until ready, and the cooler should be cleaned regularly.

Likewise, trash should be kept away from the building and disposed of regularly, expired food should be immediately thrown away, and trash cans should be placed around the property to encourage guests to properly dispose of all food waste.

Here, too, Flowtron comes to the rescue.

Flowtron indoor fly control for resorts come in two options: Indoor fly killers and indoor bug zappers.

Indoor fly killers like the 80W Indoor Sconce Fly Killer or 30W Portable Indoor Fly Killer deliver sure, silent capture with a potent combination of fly pheromones (Fly Sex Lure) and a hidden, no-escape adhesive board that traps flies and other flying insects in a radius up to 1200 square feet wide.

Their appealing design matches any décor, and their silent operation makes them an excellent, unobtrusive option for hallways, lobbies, or meeting rooms.

Flowtron indoor bug zappers like the 80W Indoor Commercial Bug Zapper or 120W Indoor/Outdoor Zapper, on the other hand, work by combining Fly Sex Lure and a powerful UV light to zap and kill insects in an even wider radius, up to 2000 square feet wide.

Super effective and chemical-free, these are a great option for your resort’s kitchen.

Additional Tips

Other methods of fly control for resorts include:

  • Keep rooms clean and dry – ensure they are routinely vacuumed, trash is removed, and damp towels aren’t left sitting out, so as to avoid roaches.
  • Conduct regular checks – the sooner management is aware of a bug problem, the better. Staff should always be on the lookout by:
    • Checking for rust-colored stains on mattresses, sheets, and seat cushions.
    • Removing headboards and inspecting behind them regularly.
    • Immediately quarantining any rooms that show signs of infestation.
