Vergo Pest Management has been working with a major food retailer client to modernise its fly control solution to align with their current lighting specifications, to further reduce their carbon footprint and to stop using fluorescent tubes containing harmful gases without compromising food safety.

Over a three-month period, Vergo’s dedicated installation team has installed 4,750 LED EcoFly units across the client’s estate. This huge project required a close working relationship with the client’s project team to ensure all units across 1400 sites had the necessary electrical connection.

Vergo removed and recycled all old electric fly control units as part of this project, and this generated £4,000, which Vergo donated to the client’s chosen charity, Comic Relief.

Our client now has enhanced protection against flies with an 85% energy saving year on year. Vergo services the units to ensure maximum protection against flies and flying insects 24/7.

Vergo’s client said: “We needed a solution to modernise our fly control. The LED EcoFly was the best unit on the market, and with the guidance and support of our trusted partner Vergo, this was the obvious solution to take forward.

“We are pleased with both the decision and the execution of the rollout. The unit change has ensured enhanced protection against flies in our stores, and we have also contributed positively to charity through the funds generated from recycling the previous units.”
