A present and common issue for most work places and homes during the warmer summer months is with flying insects making their way inside, spoiling food and carrying dangerous diseases.
Flies, in particular, pick up disease carrying bacteria from the various places that they land on – e.g. faeces, dead animals, manure and food scraps. These germs are carried on their bodies, legs and in their stomachs which are deposited onto whatever they land on next, which unfortunately can be food or cutlery/plates in a restaurant, an office kitchen or in someone’s home. These germs are then passed onto anyone who consumes the contaminated food.
Through this series of events, diseases such as Salmonellosis, Shigellosis, Trachoma and Hepatitis A can be passed on to a human, which can have an extremely serious outcome for the person or people affected. For a full list of the repercussion of flies in the workplace, click here.
