The war on flies? You can leave that to us.

A couple of months ago, our customer service department received via e-mail one of the best testimonials we've read in a long time:

"I've used your products for years and have always been impressed with them, but never thought I'd use them in quite this way.

In July I took a job with KBR doing pest control and was assigned to Camp Patriot on the east side of Baghdad. I thought I could claim to have seen bad fly problems in 15 years of pest control, but nothing could prepare someone for what exists here. This is fly hell! I mean, they are overwhelming! I can throw down some bait and two hours later the ground will be black with a carpet of dead flies to the point that they cover the bait. GoldSticks are caked in 2 or 3 days in some places.

Rescue_at_war1_2 I use the Rescue fly traps along with fly sticks, baits, and fogging to help control flies throughout the base, including the guard towers (see photo) where they help draw flies away from Army soldiers assigned to protect the base. The soldiers are always amazed at how many flies these things can catch, sometimes they fill in only a week. One nice advantage they have over the glue traps and scatter baits is that dust does not degrade their performance, a real plus over here.

Anyway, keep up the great work. Everyone here appreciates having the flies in the bags instead of buzzing all over them."

Tagg Bowman, Jr. , KBR Vector Control

It was humbling to hear that, in this small way, our product helped make the conditions around the army base a little more bearable for those brave men and women who are risking their lives in Iraq.

Thanks, Tagg, for taking the time to write.
