4-Step Fly Control Program

STEP 1: Biological Fly Control Program

What are Fly Eliminators?

  • Gnat-sized parasitic wasps that feed upon and breed within developing (pupal) stages of manure breeding flies.
  • Fly Eliminators, are used by horse and livestock owners to eliminate flies before they hatch into annoying, disease-carrying adults.
  • Fly Eliminators only parasitize fly pupae and are not a bother to horses, cattle, livestock, pets or plants.

STEP 2: Manure Management

By removing manure and treating heavily urinated areas in both stalls and surrounding areas you will begin to eliminate the top breeding habitats for flies.

  • EM-1 is a microbial inoculant spray that can be used to reduce and eliminate fly breeding areas.
  • In addition to EM-1, SCD Barn Kleaner and SCD Odor Away can begin to break down the odors and substances that attract adult flies.
  • Composting waste, repairing leaking water and keeping food storage dry will also help get rid of pesky flies.

STEP 3: Maggot Control

Use Beneficial Nematodes near manure/urination areas and other "hot spot" breeding areas to control maggot populations.

  • NemaAttack - Beneficial Nematodes, Sc
    • Beneficial Nematodes occur naturally in the soil throughout the world and parasitize a wide variety of common pest insects. Once applied, the nematodes attack fly maggots and other subterranean pests, enter through body openings and emit a toxin that kills pests within 48 hours. 2nd Day Air shipping is now included with the nematode orders.

STEP 4: Adult Fly Control

We recommend both trapping and spraying your animals for a complete, effective control measure against adult flies.
