Why I Use Beneficial Insects
For My Fly Control
You have probably seen my face on our Fly Eliminators ads. Since 1979, we have been mass rearing the fly parasites we call Fly Eliminators in our insectary. I’m a horse lover and have been fortunate to have kept a couple of horses on our property over the years. We all know what a nuisance flies are to horses and their guardians. They can transmit diseases, cause irritation and sores. My solution at home is to use our Fly Eliminators for biological control of flies.
Every 3-4 weeks I take a bag of hatching Fly Eliminators out to where we keep our horses. We have covered stalls and open turnout areas. I open the bag and begin to sprinkle the tiny Fly Eliminators and contents of the bag on “hot spot” areas where our horses place their droppings, favorite urination spots and other places where manure may accumulate such as fence posts, corners of stalls and manure piles. I dig a little hole with the heel of my shoe or a spade, add the Fly Eliminators and cover with manure, dirt or bedding. The Fly Eliminators do the rest!
Here’s how they work. Female Fly Eliminators burrow into the ground and find their host, fly pupae (cocoons). They lay their eggs inside the pupae and as the eggs develop into larvae they feed on the developing fetal fly preempting the fly from becoming an annoying, obnoxious adult fly. Fly Eliminators are affordable too. A ½ unit of Fly Eliminators, enough to treat 2-5 horses including USPS shipping costs only $18.95*. Fly Eliminators should be used continuously throughout the entire fly season.
It’s so easy to have the fly control you want with Fly Eliminators. Results are truly amazing and the benefits to our four legged friends and other loved ones are numerous. Best of all, Fly Eliminators are non-synthetic and natural! Trust me, your horses will love you when you use Fly Eliminators!
