Checklist for Fly Control in Poultry Facilities Mobile App
Fly control is important in poultry facilities due to possible economic loss from increased disease spread, mortality, and food safety concerns.
How does it work?
House flies and other non-biting flies do not cause direct injury to birds, but transfer pathogens from bird to bird within a flock or from farm to farm. Flies feed on manure and dead birds, picking up bacteria and other pathogens on their mouthparts, legs and wings. When they land on feeders and waterers, they contaminate the feed and water and pass on the pathogens. The Checklist for Fly Control in Poultry Facilities mobile app is a tool for you to use in monitoring fly populations and in routine maintenance of key fly breeding habitats on your operation.
