There is a type of production that requires very strict pest control, either against insects or rodents. In this case, we present the real case of a honey production factory, which saw how bees were attracted to its facilities by their most precious commodity. To solve this problem, Fly KL insect control air curtains were installed.
Those air curtains are specially designed to prevent the entry of flying insects. The plant has a storeroom which is accessed through an anteroom, with two rapid doors which open when the other door is closed, with one of the entrances remaining closed at all times.
The FLY curtain has a special design and was developed based on industrial air curtains and in response to the need to prevent the entry of insects or rodents into food production plants, as the hygiene and quality of their products was compromised by these annoying visitors.
The FLY curtain model has the same power as the industrial air curtains, but thanks to the nozzle on the expulsion grid, the air jet comes out with more force and the insects that try to pass through the air barrier are pushed out of the space protected by the curtain. Rodents, on the other hand, do not pass through this invisible barrier because, although the jet is not strong enough to push them in some cases, they dislike the sensation of the air on their skin and avoid it.
For the honey producer in question, the main problem they were facing was the intrusion of bees in the producction area with the consequent problem for the distributors and the customer.
In spite of the installation of a Fly insect control air curtain in the external access of the production anteroom, the honey producer observed how the bees kept on walking through the door, as the jet and the force of the jet on the floor was not enough to scare them away.
From Airtècnics we re-evaluated the situation of the company and our team of experts advised them on the best complement for this case, so that it would optimally cover the floor level.
After carrying out this project, the company in question saw a reduction in the presence of bees on their premises, thus concluding that the installation of insect curtains is a success in their field.
