Nuisance flies are commonly found on poultry farms. High stocking densities and close living quarters lead to a continuous build-up of waste which is exactly what flies need to breed.
A fly infestation can seriously impact upon a multitude of factors within both broiler and layer production yards. Firstly, flies cause stress to poultry which can affect welfare of the animals leading to a decrease in the quality and quantity of eggs produced in layer farms and growth rate reductions within broiler sites. Flies are vectors of various pathogens which can either lead to expensive veterinary treatments or the requirement to cull livestock. Furthermore, it can be an extremely unpleasant environment for farm workers to endure.
Preventing the build-up of fly infestations is a far more effective approach to pest control than allowing the situation to get out of hand and attempting to ‘knock back’ fly levels with a corrective treatment.
Bye-o-Fly can be utilised to treat a number of commonly kept avian livestock species such as, chickens, geese, turkeys and ducks and there is no interaction with our beneficial organisms and the livestock or farm workers.
An increasing number of UK and European poultry farmers are using biocontrol within their farms with great success. This is due to the side effects, environmental impact and dwindling efficacy of chemical treatments as resistance builds up. This is not possible with our products, which are safe to use and are native species to the UK.
Our integrated fly control system is a unique approach. We utilise a range of different insects and baited fly traps to target each live stage of the fly. We provide bespoke release protocols which are specifically designed to each individual farm and offer around the clock advice to help you to reduce the flies on your farm to a minimum.
Fly larvae control for tanks, channels collection pits and lagoons.
Fly Pupae control for buildings with deep litter, calf pens and hutches, muck heaps etc.
Predatory mites targeting fly eggs in any fly breeding are during the summer months.
