Fly Deterrent

Product Description

Musca domestica, the housefly, is a well known cosmopolitan pest responsible for transporting disease carrying organisms and damaging surfaces. When resting, adults regurgitate a liquid that results in spots on the surface combined with other darker spots, both of which can be difficult to remove without damaging the paint surface.

Resene has found a way to resolve the unwanted fly spot nuisance through a novel approach – create a surface that flies don t like landing on and you ll minimise the appearance of fly spots. Much like an insect repellent,

Resene Fly Deterrent discourages flies from landing on painted surfaces but will not harm or kill them. Extensive testing by an accredited laboratory has shown significant reductions in fly spots compared to standard paint systems.

Resene Fly Deterrent material is available as an additive for Resene decorative waterborne paints so you can combine your favourite Resene paint with Resene Fly Deterrent and keep your painted areas looking good for longer.

Resene Fly Deterrent works best indoors in dry areas and is ideal for separate toilet areas, lounges, bedrooms etc and in commercial projects in 'dry' areas. In wet or steamy areas the fly deterrent effect will wear off faster. Cleaning of the painted area will also reduce the fly deterrent effect. Because of this it is generally not recommended for bathrooms. If the fly deterrent effect wears off, it can be renewed by painting on one coat of your chosen Resene waterborne topcoat dosed with Resene Fly Deterrent.
