fly control FLY PREDATORS FOR FLY POPULATION CONTROL
Fly Parasites Predators are gnat-sized, nocturnal, burrowing insects which do not bite, or sting humans and animals. Adaptable to all climates, these parasites reproduce in one to two weeks, thus constantly replenishing the beneficial insect population. The fly Parasites predator are the naturally occurring enemy of all manure breeding pest flies. In nature these tiny insect predators serve as a major check of fly populations by destroying flies in the immature maggot and pupa stages. These predators are specific to flies, never attacking anything else. It's important to realize that these tiny wasps have absolutely no effect on horses or humans. They stay close to the manure and dirt where filty pests live. Even if they could reach you or your horse, the fly parasite predators are so small that they cannot sting. Their main purpose in life is to act as a natural predator against dirty flies and they do a great job. Fly Controlling Predators are a preferred alternative to chemical insecticides that are hazardous to human and animal life. NO ADVERSE SIDE EFFECTS. A major benefit of biological control is that it avoids completely the adverse side effects of chemical sprays, such as poison residue in the environment affecting not only the pests but also non-target animals (songbirds, beneficial insects, etc.) and most importantly your domestic stock. This is a serious problem as some of the common spray residues are effective for up to 3 or 4 years, and remember that poisonous toxic chemicals become less effective with repeated use.

A BIOLOGICAL FLY CONTROL PROGRAM:

Larvae/Pupae Control:

Control Flys with Fly Parasites, the natural enemy
- Kill developing flies.
- Break the life cycle of the fly.
- Attack fly larvae and pupae

Beneficial Nematodes
- Attack fly larvae
- Required only 1-3 applications per year.
- Gives extra control where large numbers of larvae are observed.

Manure Management/Sanitation:

- Remove manure regularly.
- Compost waste properly.
- Repair leaky water devices.
- Keep feed storage areas dry.

Parasite Particulars

Parasite Lifecycle   - Gnat-sized, nocturnal, and burrow into the soil.
- Can be used to treat dogs, poultry, swine, feed lots, dairies, and other facilities where flies are a problem.
- Will NOT bite or harm humans and animals.
- Reproduce in 1-2 weeks, constantly reinforcing the parasite population.
- Sold in the form of parasitized pupae, and are easy to disperse.
- Travel up to 80 yards to find food sources (fly pupae)
- Adaptable to all climates.
- Bio-Balanced Fly Control is the long overdue solution for livestock owners, breeders, and trainers.
- Bio-Balanced Fly Control programs are the safest, most cost effective way to control filth-breeding flies!

Parasite Application

Your insects arrive in a bag as parasitized pupae in a sawdust medium. The pupae are at various stages of development. Store at room temperature away from dogs and ants. Check for hatching over the next day or two by holding the bag up to a light source. When the first gnat-like parasites appear inside the bag it's time for application. Once dispersed, hatching will continue over the next week.

The parasites are nocturnal, thus the optimal release time is dusk. Apply the parasites around the edges of "hot spots" areas where manure and urine are accumulated - where flies are crawling and breeding. Scratch a 1/2" hole in the ground with your heel, drop in a tablespoon of the sawdust and pupae mixture, and cover the hole with dirt, manure, or straw. Repeat this process every 10-20 feet until the package contents are gone. Use a little extra in problem "hot spots".

Starting Dates Map
This is a  Fly Control Program using regular releases of fly parasites and beneficial nematodes.

First, use regular releases of fly predator parasites based upon the prescriptions to the right.

Second, use beneficial nematodes once or twice a year to treat manure piles or any areas where fly larvae populations may be abundant.
