Flies getting out of hand?
Are you having to go around your farm with fly sprays and baits as the weather improves? Soon to realise that you have to do it all over again? Although sprays and baits could help, these only target the adults of the fly, which is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the fly population.
APPI specialises in natural solutions and works together with nature in order to control pest problems on the livestock farm. Our beneficial insects work preventively against the development of flies by predating on fly larvae or parasitising on fly pupae.
APPIFLY maggot predators
The Life Cycle
AppiFly is a small predatory fly. We also call them maggot predators as the larvae of this predatory fly feeds on fly larvae in slurry. It has been successfully controlling flies at hundreds of farms on the continent.
The adult will fly just a few inches above the muck and starts laying eggs straight after being released. The eggs develop into parasitic larvae actively consuming fly larvae, breaking the life cycle of the fly.
AppiFly can be introduced before flies have become abundant as this beneficial insect develops in the slurry without the need to predate.
