From Offices to Restaurants, EndZone™ Stickers Work!

Frank Mongiovi is used to fighting flies in commercial restaurant and bar accounts, but he didn’t expect to find house flies in a doctor’s office.

Frank Mongiovi, owner of Best Termite & Pest Control, Inc., in Tampa, Fla., has tried EndZone™ insecticide stickers in a variety of accounts.

Frank Mongiovi, owner of Best Termite & Pest Control, Inc., in Tampa, Fla., has tried EndZone™ insecticide stickers in a variety of accounts.

“The patients were really bothered by them. We tried a lot of things to get rid of them and couldn’t find anything that helped,” says the owner of Best Pest Control in Tampa, Florida. “We even tried closing the building on the weekend and turning heat up as high as it would go to dry out any moisture problems. But the flies were still there on Monday.

Then he experimented with new EndZone™ insecticide stickers from FMC. He put the 4-1/4-inch square stickers in different places within the office building where he saw the flies landing. “It worked! We checked back in a few days and the flies were gone,” he notes.

Containing a formulation of acetamiprid and a food source that attracts flies, EndZone stickers are clear adhesive squares. They can be placed on windows, on walls, under counters, near floor drains or on other surfaces where flies congregate.

“I never did find the source of the flies in the doctor’s office, but they didn’t come back,” adds Mongiovi. “The stickers are still working.”*

Best Pest Control has been in business since 1978, when Mongiovi started opened shop as a single proprietor. Since then, it’s grown to cover not only Tampa but the five surrounding counties. He employs 35 technicians, who handle pest control, lawn care and termite fumigation.

“We do a lot of restaurants and taverns — not all of them high-end,” jokes Mongiovi. “Food establishments attract a lot of flies….fruit flies, house flies, pharaoh flies, drain flies – you name it!”

Mongiovi started the company in 1978 as a single proprietor. He now has 35 technicians.

Best Pest recently used EndZone stickers on a local establishment with “a heck of a fruit fly problem.” Previously, the account required constant attention with a variety of pesticide products and treatments. “But we put up EndZone stickers and got them under control,” he notes. “I’m impressed!

Mongiovi finds that flies are dying close to where he places the stickers.

So he trains his technicians to put them in an area where they’ll be away from tables or serving areas.

“I’ve noticed that when a fly enters a room from outside, it will turn right away and land on the wall,” he adds. “It rests there a minute to get its bearings. If I can put the stickers where I know the fly will go, I can control it before it flies anywhere else.”

Mongiovi has used EndZone in various locations, from office buildings to beer parlors and everything in between. “I wouldn’t hesitate to use them in residential accounts, as well,” he adds. “They are a great new tool for fly control.”

*Note: EndZone stickers start to kill flies within one minute after they ingest the bait matrix and provide residual control for up to seven months indoors and four months outdoors, when protected from rain, excess moisture, dirt, dust and filth.

Mongiovi has worked with FMC Market Specialist Bruce Ryser for 26 years.
