successful three-pronged fly control strategy a fly parasite release program is most costeffective when combined with two other strategies trapping adult flies and managing manure or decomposing organic matter to reduce fly breeding sites each of these strategies is described below 1 regular fly parasite releases rincon-vitova insectaries produces a high quality product containing a mixture of species of parasitic wasps can be shipped by ups or other carriers which are developing inside the fly pupa some adults will be emerging on delivery unless otherwise requested they are shipped in wood shavings to cushion them in transit and absorb moisture paper bags that breathe are used for packaging do not store in plastic containers product description 75 minimum parasitism no live flies expected sex ratio 60 female approximately 50 wood shavings by volume item code fp5 fp10 fp50 pupae 5,000 10,000 50,000 parasites 10,000 20,000 100,000 units 1/2 1 5 rincon-vitova manager jan dietrick and

help spread them around one unit a bag of 10k fp10 contains about 4 cups or 32 oz or 64 tbs you can throw a few in the corner of stalls or under mangers dig a furrow with the back of your heel sprinkle in a few parasites then cover with soil or dry manure sprinkle some under a fence near water troughs look around see what makes sense in your facility cially when manure is removed frequently and adult flies are trapped timing releases it is easier to prevent a build-up of flies than to get rid of them a few flies always survive the cold and drying conditions of winter in the pupa stage parasite releases should be made early each spring at the first sign of emerging or immigrating adults to decrease adult flies laying eggs very early releases can be smaller in number increasing in quantity at the first signs of active breeding maggots in wet spots once established fewer parasites are needed since few fly parasites survive the winter yearly augmentation is necessary one typical program

year an early start gives the beneficial populations time to increase to larger numbers in the manure and will result in fewer fly problems for the rest of the summer counting the number of flies caught in jug traps with bait in them or on fly tapes is an excellent way to monitor changes in fly populations baited jug traps are easily made by hanging a gallon milk jug that has four 2 to 2½ inch holes in the top half of the jug with a wire one ounce of bait is placed in the bottom of each trap baits containing the fly pheromone muscalure muscamone® z-9-tricosene are the most effective at attracting flies golden malrin® blue streak® stimukil® apache® and flytek® are some brands that contain 1 methomyl a carbamate flies eat the bait and quickly die these traps should be hung about one foot below beams near areas where flies are often seen resting or where fly specks are concentrated if you empty the trap weekly and estimate and record the volume of dead flies it is one way to

evaluating parasite effectiveness monitor number of adult flies a reduction in the number of adult flies is the best measure of a successful fly control program control decisions should be based on a standardized method of quantifying fly numbers baited jug traps and index cards offer two standardized methods use of other biocontrols ophyra or dump fly hydrotaea aenescens is a fly whose larva lives in manure sludge and preys on house fly larvae the adult fly doesn t bother people or animals like house flies see page 11 hister beetles carcinops pumilio are tiny 1/8 inch long beetles that eat fly eggs and larvae in moist manure release in chicken houses where the manure stays moist and warm see page 11 fly scatter bait traps count the number of flies caught per trap in a week fly activity is usually considered high if more than 250 flies are caught weekly in a trap hister beetle eating fly eggs dung beetles onthophagus spp are large scarab beetles ½ inch long that bury manure in

from a satisfied customer in the midwest dear rincon-vitova i have used parasitic wasps for four years now i would not change i highly recommend them to any serious livestock producer below are a few of the benefits we ve seen 1 we have very few adult flies no matter the time of season 2 we find we have fewer flies going into the following season 3 the livestock eat better when flies do not bother them we have not experienced the typical summer decrease in the livestock s growth since using the fly parasites 4 the cost ended up being not much more than what we were paying for the liquid fly trap method using fly parasites is so easy just open the bag and spread what a great product sincerely deborah a royer royer farm washington il professionals in diverse industries and facilities get the results they want dr richard meirs dvm walnridge farm cream ridge nj mark mullen fair winds farm cream ridge nj bradley wallace hickory lane horse farm findlay oh jamie kogel tanrackin farm bedford
