Flies

Fly problem
Problems with flies occur nearly everywhere around the globe, but specifically become a major problem in place such as dairy farms, pig farms, chicken farms, turkey farms, sheep farms, and stables.

The importance of getting rid of flies
• Flies spread diseases (f.e. salmonella, mastitis, swine fever, foot-and-mouth disease, brucellosis, PRRS, rotavirus)
• They cause stress in animals
• They cause hazard to humans, animals and the environment

This causes
• Less profit due to loss in growth and production (milk, meat, eggs)
• Raised heartbeat and respiratory rate caused by sudden movement, bites, scratches
• Increased nutritional needs because of bloodloss
• Fly nuisance for farmers, employees and neighbours (contaminated areas)

Did you know?
The lifecycle of a fly lasts between one weeks and two months. The full cycle may vary depending on the temperature.

45-51 days at 16 ° C
14-16 days at 25 ° C
8-10 days  at 35 ° C

A female fly can produce 600 - 1000 eggs during her lifecycle!

UNBELIEVABLE!
Under the ideal circumstances, one egg can develop over 10,000,000 flies!

Effect and benefits
Place the Knock Off Fly trap XL , or when necessary multiple traps, on all the places where a nuisance caused by flies is experienced. The ideal height is about 1.5 metres from the ground (flies mostly are present between 80 cm and 2 metres from the ground). 

How does it work?
During the day, the flies can be found in stables and/or buildings to search for food (manure, feed or other organic substances as found in waste). 

By using the very best, non-toxic FlyNip bait, this fly trap offers superior catch results. The special lid on the bait reservoir ensures a dosed release of the FlyNip. The unique construction of the trap combined with the air flow ensures that the flies are being separated from the water with the bait, so that nog eggs can be laid on it. 

A sturdy base at the bottom ensures that the trap can be placed or hung in a stable position, by using the supplied wall mount.
