Flies

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was looking at some of the photos and wanted to share some info on the fly battle that most of us endure. Do not place fly bait traps like those pheromone traps you add water to, inside or close to your coop or animal stalls. These are designed to -attract- flies. Flies can travel a quarter mile. Put those type traps away from the places you don't want flies. Use sticky traps in and around your coop or stalls. Where the animals can't get to them of course... Rake around the area and keep poop cleaned up. Just my two cents....

We are very lucky with not having barely any flies. Also, I couldn't bear killing them, I would feel so guilty.

Ameruacanas after having flies in the house i am willing to murder everyone one of them. The flies for some reason this year are horrible they on everything even cars and its not just us other people i know that dont have animals have them bad as well so its annoying majorly not to be able to get away from them.
