Fly control

Discussion in 'Predators and Pests' started by Yard full o' rocks, May 24, 2010.

  1. I was out of town last week and returned to "a lot of flies"!!! Uuugggghhhh

    It seems that they are worst around my last 2 coops/runs where my younger birds are housed as they grow up. We did get a fair amount of ran last week so the runs are damp, but not muddy or puddled.

    But, flies are EVERYWHERE. I put 2 of those tape type fly traps out last night and this morning they are covered up.

    Does anyone have a good, effective treatment for these darn things?

    My runs are sand, but there is some dirt mixed in with it. The coops have been cleaned out and have fresh bedding (pine shavings)

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreicated
