ST. PAUL, Minn. — Ecolab launched launch the Stealth Fly Station at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) Restaurant in May.

The Stealth Fly Station is a dark, reflective device that uses multiple stimulating characteristics to attract and eliminate flies around the exterior of a facility before they can become a problem inside. The device can be placed near common fly areas, such as Dumpster corrals, to discreetly keep flies from interrupting daily operations. The Stealth Fly Station also helps reduce pesticide use, resulting in a lower impact and more sustainable approach for the environment, according to Ecolab.

Ecolab's Research and Development team developed the Stealth Fly Station through extensive testing of fly behavior and evaluation of environmental characteristics to understand how flies adjust and react to different types of stimuli. By studying flies under field conditions and when released into controlled environments, the team gained new understanding of fly exploration behavior and utilized the findings to develop Stealth Fly Station technology.
