Living on a farm, we battle flies. This summer we tried something new, and it’s decreased the number of flies we have around the barns significantly. We wanted to share so others could gain ideas on how to control flies. We decided to try a biological method by purchasing fly parasites. These insects eat the fly larvae before it can turn into a fly. We also hung up fly abatement strips to get rid of the existing mature flies. We were amazed at the difference this made. Here’s the website for the biological fly parasites: http://www.kunafin.com. We are not being paid to advertise for them. We just wanted to share as an idea for fly control since it was beneficial on our farm.
