Fly Control in Caged Layer Buildings
Metadata[+] Show full item record
House flies, soldier flies and other non-biting flies can and often do become a problem in poultry buildings. They do not bite or feed on the birds but may carry pathogens because of their habit of feeding on manure, dead birds and other waste materials. This guide gives recommendations for controlling flies only in caged layer operations where the birds are not in contact with the floor or litte. Properly managed floor operations seldom have a fly problem.
