Fly Control in the Poultry House
This fact sheet contains information on how to control flies, species of flies, and management of flies in the poultry house. Fly control should be an integral part of every poultry producer's management program. Flies spread disease and filth, is a nuisance to employees, and can become problems for nearby farms and residences. As the number of producers decrease and the size of remaining poultry operations increase, larger units may provide the opportunity for flies to concentrate and therefore create even larger problems.
