House Fly – musca domestica

Lesser House Fly – fannia canicularis

The majority of fly pests are associated with potential spreading of disease, contamination of food and of general discomfort to humans.  They are known to transmit many easily communicable diseases as they can collect pathogens on their legs and mouths when laying eggs.  It takes a very small amount of time to transfer these onto surfaces or foodstuffs.  Eggs are laid on faeces, rotting vegetable matter or even decomposing animals.  They are laid in batches of up to 150 which can hatch within 2 hours.  A prolific breeding cycle can result in infestations becoming established within very short periods of time.


Cluster Flies – pollenia rudis

Found throughout Europe and the UK and so called due to its habit of clustering and hibernating in large numbers within buildings. They are a common pest within domestic roof and loft spaces and within suspended ceilings of office buildings.

PPMS can provide bespoke control programmes for flying insect issues.  These can range from knock down treatments where necessary to fly screen installation, fly control units and fly traps.  Each individual issue requires a unique solution which our Surveyors can provide.

Flying Insect Control Units

Encapsulation units of unique design which provide tested effective control of all shapes and sizes of flying insect pests.


  • All stainless steel construction – plastic units degrade quickly

  • Easy servicing – reducing maintenance costs

  • Shatter resistant UV tubes fitted as standard

  • Discreet

  • No ‘zapping’ noise

Wasps – vespula vulgaris

Wasps are particularly prevalent between May and September.  They can build nests in many different places and are a nuisance, and sometimes a danger, to humans.   Nests are frequently found in loft spaces, cavity walls, air bricks and garden sheds etc.  When a wasp discovers a preferable area for food and grub collection and wood sources for nest construction, many more will follow.   Sometimes in enough numbers to create a swarm.


Wasp stings are caused by an injection of venom into the victim.  The venom is haemolytic, haemorrhagic and neurotoxic.  Histamine is also present which is the cause of the redness and inflammation of the skin.  The main hazard from a wasp sting is the risk of anaphylactic shock arising from a single or multiple stings.

PPMS has the experience and equipment to rapidly deal with these pests, even in hard to access areas.

The PPMS Wasp Trap System

This system has been engineered to allow the safest and most effective control of wasps.  The Trap will remain operational throughout the season and can catch thousands of wasps in the 3.4 litre capacity tank.  The bait is pesticide and toxin free which means no damage to non-target species.


The wasp trap system has taken over 6 years to design and perfect to ensure the most effective control of these flying pests.  It can be safely installed in many areas, around work places, outside eating areas, playgrounds and many other areas.
