FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
15 DECEMBER 2006
Good old kiwi ingenuity has resulted in another first for Resene.
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 Ė create a surface that flies donít like landing on and youíll minimise the appearance of fly spots.
This novel concept has been formulated into Resene SpaceCote Flat Fly Deterrent, designed to discourage flies from landing on areas painted with this product minimising the appearance of fly spots and keeping the paint finish looking its best for longer. Extensive testing by an accredited laboratory has shown significant reductions in fly spots compared to standard paint systems.
Resene SpaceCote Flat Fly Deterrent combines all the benefits and performance of Resene SpaceCote with the added bonus of fly deterrent. Available exclusively from Resene ColorShops nationwide in white and over 800 colours off white.

I wonder if they need testers?
An excellent way of getting rid of fly spots is baby wipes, a couple of rubs and they go even if they are years old and no damage to paint, or at least in my experince anyway. I guess a small area should always be tested first.
Address the root of the problem and not the symptoms.
A can of black flag with a cigarette lighter. Napalm the little buggers and be done with it.
I have 2 boys and they can do well at getting the roof dirty.

Raid is advertising stickers on TV now too that attract the buggers.
I still think cleaning up rubbish and long grass is easier.
Then a ritual fly treatment. I have the chemical premixed in a $10 pump pack. And treat the house this time every year.
I wrote about how to do it here awhile back and had fly tips article also from memory.
How do you keep the tenants from running away whilst you do it.
