Sterile Fly Production Facility

Sterile Fly Production Facility

 

Chiapas Mexico - Sterile Fly Production Facility ToppsĀ® and ToppsĀ® Seal provided the waterproofing for this quarter million square foot joint venture of the Mexican and U.S. Department of Agriculture to eradicate the flesh eating Screw Worm outbreak. The facility was experienceing considerable water infiltrations and other methods (acrylic waterproofing) were unsuccessful.

This facility is the fortress of prevention. It quietly began breeding and releasing 500 million sterile flies a week since 1983. Their strategic release continues to keep our borders and others free of attack.
