This comprehensive guide, produced by Aviagen, gives farm managers clear and actionable information to control the incidence of flies on the poultry farm.

Flies pose a health risk for humans and poultry. They are carriers of Salmonella, Pasteurella, Campylobacter and E. Coli which have a negative effect on poultry flocks and farm personnel. The speed of fly reproduction can vary depending on environmental conditions such as warmth, moisture and food sources, but it is not uncommon to have 5 - 6 generations during a single summer breeding season.

The key to avoiding fly infestations is managing water and moisture in the litter. Farms which keep dry litter rarely experience serious fly infestations.

A successful fly control program ensures moisture is controlled within the house and fly breeding sites are eliminated. Insecticides can help to provide temporary reductions in fly populations but cannot be the only method of effective fly management.



Whenever possible feed, litter, broken eggs and mortalities on which flies lay their eggs must be removed.

Litter removed at depletion should not be stored on the farm or spread on land adjacent to the farm. It must be removed with a trailer covered in a tarpaulin to a distance of at least 3.2 km (2 miles) away from the farm and disposed of in accordance with government regulations.

1) Insecticides are an effective method of reducing initial fly burden and are a key component of a good biosecurity program.

Insecticide baits typically consist of a mixture of insecticide, sugar and pheromone attractants. There are two types of insecticide used in the poultry industry residual and non-residual.

Larvicides control only the fly larvae and are usually applied as a spray or distribution of granules on the manure beneath the slats in the breeder house or directly onto litter in the broiler houses. Some things to consider when applying larvicides are:
