Pesky Flying Pests Stay in the Bullseye

April 6, 2016

Mars has long had the flying insect in our crosshairs because they annoy diners and retail patrons, they spread bacteria and viruses, and they imply lack of operational cleanliness. Now with the Zika virus’ link to mosquitos – while a health threat seemingly under control in North American for now – we are given further proof that flying insects, be they mosquitos, flies or fleas, are a threat to the food supply and human health. Mars has been offering defense for foodservice and retail operators for over five decades and has had a team dedicated to creating best-in-class products to thwart the pesky flying annoyances that can also turn deadly. While the best defense against mosquito-borne illnesses is a vaccine, until we have one, we’ll continue to do our part to give foodservice and retail unit owners and operators with the best invisible protection for entryways and doors.
