What are Fly Eliminators?
Fly Eliminators
are gnat-sized parasitic wasps that feed upon and breed within developing (pupal) stages of manure breeding flies, eliminating the adult pest fly. The adult female fly lays her eggs wherever there is decomposing organic material. The female Fly Eliminators seek out their target host and depositing their eggs inside the fly pupae. Within a short period of time, the larvae (maggot stage) burrow into the manure and eventually develop into pupae (cocoon stage).

These eggs hatch and begin to grow and feed on the developing fly, thus stopping the adult pest fly from hatching. Fly Eliminators reproduce in approximately 3 weeks, constantly replenishing the beneficial insect population. Pest flies reproduce at a faster rate than Fly Eliminators; therefore, they must be reintroduced on a regular basis.

We recommend releasing a shipment of Fly Eliminators every 3 to 4 weeks under a fly control program that lasts throughout the duration of the fly season. Releases ranging from 1-6 weeks; however, are not uncommon. Quantity required and frequency of application vary according to severity of the fly problem, neighboring animals, manure management, number of animals, and start date of program. Choose from one of our zone-specific programs below or ARBICO’s experienced staff can tailor a program to fit your particular needs. Follow our 4 Steps for Maximum Fly Control to build the most successful fly control program.

How to Apply? Fly Eliminators are shipped as parasitized fly pupae in wood shavings. When received, check for evidence of hatching. Once a few have hatched, simply disperse small handfuls or scoops around your property into "hot spot" breeding areas: near manure piles, under water troughs, below bedding, corners of pens and paddocks, and feeding sites. Cover with dirt to protect pupaes.
