Hi....my name is Milan and my wife has two pekin ducks and flies are our problem...Any ideas?
Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us!
Greetings from Kansas and . Pleased you joined our community! Ducks can truly draw flies. Some folks use the disposable fly traps sold in farm and ranch stores. Others have elaborate electrified screens that zap the flies when they land on it. Best bet is to type 'fly problem' into the BYC search box. Lots of old thread discuss your issue. Good luck to you!
keeping their area as dry as possible helps a lot, I have quite a few ducks and in hot humid weather flys are a problem, also spilled feed attracts them. I have limed heavily wet areas and keep moving their water to dryer areas cooler fall weather will help
Hello there and welcome to Backyard chickens Milan! I have heard that fly predators work wonders on them. This site will tell you how many you need for 6 month coverage, and how much it will be. Here it is and I hope it helps!
There are a lot of threads on this big ol problem...here is one...
Hope you get them under control. It's getting cooler here..won't have that problem for long..especially while we are having all of this rain!
Hello, and welcome to BYC!
Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.
Try Spalding fly predators. My mom uses them around her horse pen and I've hardly ever noticed flies down there.
