Food Friendly Fly Control

My business addresses the ongoing problem of Fly control in all food areas, but especially, Commercial Kitchens, Cafes, Restaurants, Takeaways, Fishmongers, Bakery’s, Butchers, Bars, Clubs & Pubs in fact, all food prep and hospitality spaces.

A major part of my working life has been as a Chef in the hospitality industry, both in Melbourne, Nth NSW, far Nth QLD and Italy.
I have been lucky enough to have worked in fine dining restaurants, cafes, on board boats and in the ski fields.

I noticed early on that no one was dealing specifically with fly problems in the food sector and that with my years of working as a chef and intimate knowledge of kitchen operations, there was a place in the market for a company to take this work on.

My business The Fly Lady, manages fly problems for all aspects of the food industry, leaving chefs and food handlers, managers and maître d’s , free to concentrate on what they do best… Food and people.

My cheffing experience includes:

  • The Stokehouse, Melbourne  (upstairs)
  • Piero’s by Toni Sassi at the Crown Casino, Melbourne
  • Kin Koa by Meera Freeman, Melbourne,
  • Gourlay’s by Brad French and Mietta O’Donnell, Melbourne
  • Dish by Ben and Belinda Kirkwood, Byron Bay,
  • Motor Yatch El Bravo of Cayman with R.A.Brooks Chef De Cuisine
  • Rifugio Averau, Cortina D’Ampezzo Italy.
“I have had the pleasure of knowing Pip Cleary of over 15 years working for many of Byron Bay’s best known restaurants as a chef, including one of my own. In her business, as The Fly Lady, this experience provides her with much more insight than your ordinary pest exterminator: she specialises in hospitality, and, as an ex-chef she knows restaurants inside out, understanding the needs, health and safety requirements and the people. We have been using her services at Beach Byron Bay with great success, and have reaped the rewards of The Fly Lady’s reliable and friendly service for many years now. We find her all-natural, odour-free product is very effective. And we would definitely highly recommend The Fly Lady to other restaurants or cafes.”
