Time to Fly
We’ve been using these tiny little bugs to control our fly population for three years now. I learned about them while wearking at a ranch as a horse wrangler. They are the neatest little bugs and of course, they provide a solution that is pesticide free and in my opinion actually works better than anything out there.
Spalding Labs sends you a small package filled with little black, rice like eggs packed in wood shavings. It’s the fly predator larve. The bugs emerge in a couple of days and you simply sprinkle them onto the ground on or near manure, rotting hay or any other problem area. They are not much bigger than the period at the end of this sentence but they work wonders. The tiny bugs get straight to work eating the regular fly larve, stopping the flies before they even get a chance to hatch.
At my first introduction to the predators I was amazed but sure I would not be able to afford them. Not so! A monthly shipment of 10,000 predators (enough for my small farm) is only about $30, much less than a couple cans of spray and a trap that doesn’t work. It’s cold enough here that I only need 4-5 shipments, other areas of the country may need to continue the shipments longer.
