Manure and Sanitation Management

Good sanitation management is an essential component of a successful bio-balanced fly control program! By eliminating conditions favorable for flies to lay eggs and for larvae to feed and grow, fewer survive to become breeding adults. Use traps to reduce stray adult flies.

Remove manure frequently. Compost, cover or remove manure from site. Eliminate wet areas (leaky faucets, poor drainage areas, etc.) where possible.

In biological fly control, parasitic wasps and beneficial nematodes compete with the flies. Biocontrol Network's prescription program inundates the treatment area with fly parasites. As the winged adult flies are able to breed so much more prolifically than the wasps (see Fact Sheet), good sanitation management and larval control will help to increase to effectiveness of your program.
