Pesticides can have (in)direct effects on biological solutions. Do not use Biofly in combination with products which contain cyromazine.

When to use Biofly?

Use Biofly for the biological pest control of houseflies and larvae in livestock.

How does Biofly work?

When the flies emerge from the released pupae, they will lay eggs on or close to the manure, the developing larvae will predate on the house fly larvae. They can also develop on manure only. In contrast to the house flies Hydrotaea aenescens adults will not irritate the animals as they stay low in the pit.

Application Biofly

Make use of the specially designed release station, which can be placed inside the stable, outside reach of the animals. Put the content of the Biofly bag inside the release station.
