Control of Manure Flies & Biting Flies in Stables/Pastures
Horse owners have three fly control problems: manure flies in stables, biting flies around paddocks and pastures, and face flies. IPM Laboratories offers product solutions for the first two vexing problems and advice on non-toxic control of face flies.
Use of Fly Parasites:
Natural!Fly parasites prevent adult flies from hatching. These tiny beneficial insects kill the pupae and then use the killed pupae as “nurseries” to grow new parasites.
Stop Fly Breeding with Fly Parasites
Fly parasites kill flies in the pupa stage before they hatch into flies. These are tiny wasps (the size of a fruit fly) that specialize in killing flies. They do not sting people or mammals. These beneficial are naturally occurring and widespread in low numbers. They just need reinforcement to exert fly control where fly breeding is abundant.
Trap Flies in the Stable, Trap Biting Flies Outside
Flies in the stable come from two sources: breeding on the farm and breeding off the farm. Use giant sticky traps to trap those flies that come in from elsewhere or escape consumption by their natural enemies.
Biting flies breed in wetlands. They are strong fliers and can move long distances. Effective control involves trapping them as they move to your farm. We offer Biting Fly Traps for biting flies outdoors around paddocks.
Face flies breed in the pasture and elude most forms of control. They also can travel long distances from other pastures. One of the easiest and most effective non-toxic solutions is the fly mask.
