Publication 849
House Fly Control in Poultry Barns

Controlling the house fly population is important in maintaining a healthy poultry barn environment. The presence of large numbers of flies in area can create a strain on neighbour and community relations. This guide presents a range of management options that have been field tested at various poultry farm operations. Acting on these options can increase productivity and avoid nuisance complaints from neighbours. Poultry farmers can tailor fly control strategies to match their unique circumstances.

These strategies do not guarantee all flies will be eliminated from the farm, as they are part of the natural environment.
