Blog : No More Biting Flies Thanks to the Fly Cage

By Katelyn | Aug 26, 2015 | in

With the end of summer nearing, many seacoast residents find themselves stuck between wishing the season lasts forever and excitement that pesky bugs will begin dwindling away until next year. One local who is no longer worried about biting flies in his yard is Charles Forcey.

As Chair of the Durham Energy Committee, Forcey is at the forefront of energy and environmental issues in town. He is also the newest Sustaining Member of the Green Alliance and celebrated joining as a lifetime member by choosing a free Fly Cage from Ecotech Pest Control as his new member gift!

Tom Pray, owner of Ecotech, invented the Fly Cage, which mimics the appearance of a four-legged animal and is 100% environmentally-friendly. It is a buoy-like visual trap for biting flies such as green heads, deer flies, and horse flies and draws the flies in, capturing them in a way similar to lobster traps.

Completely collapsible, owners can hand-wash the canvas and mesh netting when storing it for the winter season and the Fly Cage is made of materials that are 100 percent recyclable, from the metal legs to the canvas and mesh.

Forcey is looking forward to reducing biting fly populations in his yard for years to come, especially now that there is a more sustainable and environmentally alternative to harmful chemical sprays.

As Chair of the Durham Energy Committee, Forcey has led organization efforts for the upcoming Drive Electric Week event in downtown Durham. On September 20, from 12 - 4 p.m., the Energy Committee will hold a ribbon cutting for the new electric vehicle charging station in Durham. Various electric vehicles will be on display and Port City Nissan and BMW of Stratham will be offering free test drives of the Nissan LEAF® and the BMW i3 vehicles.

Green Alliance members save 10% on mosquito, tick, and ant mitigation services for the first year of service with Ecotech. Not a member? Join today!
