- Where do the flies come from?Almost every farm, zoo, animal park or home with livestock will have flies. They usually are hatched on the premises. Flies breed in moist mediums like manure areas, wet feed areas like hay and silage, food, waste management containers, and even building crevasses.
- Why use fly parasites?Fly parasites are nature’s self-maintenance for fly control known as beneficial insects. They canvass the area seeking fly larva (eggs) for food and reproduction. When they find it they sting the pupa killing off fly development. They are safer than insecticides and will not harm the animals or environment.
- Will they kill all the flies?They can control your fly population but do not kill existing flies. They attack fly larva and kill off future fly hatching. They are silent but deadly killers who can go anywhere on your premises inside and outside to seek out their prey. If they miss a place where flies are developing you may have flies. We always recommend using the Cedar Fly Traps along with the fly parasites for more control. Check out Cedar Fly Traps and Electronic Fly Zappers for more information.
How many shipments do I need?The amount of flies produced on a farm depeds on how much moist organic material and heat exists on the farm. Generally that depends on how many animals are there and that is why our recommendations depend on the number of goats at your location. The fewer goats the fewer shipments (like the Basic plans). More goats more shipments (like the Standard plans) and many goats need many shipments like the Super Knock Out plans.
Where do I disperse them and when?Flies can breed anywhere on your farm where there is damp and warm organic material. That generally means manure accumulation or compost but also can be wet feed or hay or other hot spots. Beacause fly parasites are a nocturnal insect, hatching at night and moving at night distributing them in the evening is recommended. Remember these insects are canvassers and you want them to canvas your grounds in search of fly pupa therefore disperse them widely while concentrating heavier amounts on hot spots. Hot spots are anywhere you have seen maggots.
Do they work inside?Definitely. They work inside and outside equally as well. When dispersing outside it is best to cover them with dirt, manure, sand, hay, etc. to protect them from the sun and birds getting them before they hatch. Once hatched they will be safe because they will always be below the surface. Don't expect to see them as they remain sub-terrainel and move at night.
- Who uses fly parasites?Fly parasites provide the fundamental foundation for fly control to hundreds of thousands of all types of farms, zoos, and other facilities throughout the USA : dairy farms (goat or cattle), deer farms, zoos, small or large farms with horses, alpacas, goats or llamas, dog kennels and special public facilities.
