Getting Rid Of Flies On Dog Kennels
Well, it’s about that time again. It’s almost summertime, and that means it’s about time for filthy flies that are continually buzzing around your kennel, pestering your dogs and causing canine health problems. Remember how annoying the flies were last year? Remember the spraying, swatting, and frustration as you tried to kill flies on dogs and their bedding?
This year, why not try Fly Predators? The beneficial insects that make up Fly Predators are a better biological solution to pesticides and poisons. They are tiny little insects that feed upon fly larvae, which results in fewer adult flies to pester your dogs or go on to lay more fly eggs.
To get rid of flies, just sprinkle a small bag filled with these tiny insects around kennels and dog elimination areas when the weather gets warm. By following the instructions, you can prevent flies from bothering your pooches. Continue to release Fly Predators each month throughout the summer to reduce fly populations on your property.
The beneficial insects that make up Fly Predators are a natural enemy of flies, but they never annoy humans or animals. They are so small you can hardly see them, but they do a big job on fly populations. In fact, many of customers report that they can go a whole season with seeing nary a fly. Those who have the best results will typically begin using Fly Predators in the springtime, before flies become a real problem.
Fly Predators eliminate breeding of pest flies through all-natural biological control methods. Where pesticide sprays only affect adult flies that have already repopulated themselves hundreds of times, Fly Predators work by targeting flies while they are in their cocoon. This not only stops immature flies from ever growing up to become pests, it prevents them from breeding and repopulating.
Those who wish to avoid the potential adverse side effects that we associate with pesticides will benefit by using Fly Predators. If you’re unsure about whether biological control is right for you, just read the warning label on the side of a pesticide or fly repellent designed to get rid of house, blue or green flies. That’s one of the best advertisements for “bio-control” to be had. By contrast, you will find no warning label on Fly Predators or any of the species that make them up.
There’s almost nothing in life easier than using Fly Predators. Just spend a few minutes once a month sprinkling the Predators out of the bag they arrive in. Dump them in areas where fresh manure builds up and any spots that tend to stay wet. You only have to get them close to areas where flies breed because the Predators distribute themselves up to 100 feet away.
Fly Predators are economical too. During warm months you generally only need about 300 Predators per dog. The cost ranges from less than $2.00 up to $3.00 per thousand Predators, so the cost of getting rid of flies is minimal, while benefits resulting from treatment are substantial. Many people find that this method of organic pest control is a substantial savings when compared to other methods they’ve tried.
Tips For Backyard Dogs
Flies on dog areas in the backyard are usually quite simple to treat. Just clean up any dog droppings as frequently as you can (no less than once a week), and place the feces in a container that’s sealed tightly. If your neighbors have a fly infestation that affects you, just use twice the amount of Fly Predators that you’d normally use and make sure to place them within 100 feet of where waste accumulates. If your neighboring animals are nearby, you can probably release Fly Predators along the fence line and call it good.
Handy Hints For Kennels On Dirt
Kennels or pens on dirt need to have manure collected often. If it’s going into the trash it needs to be in a sealed container. Manure that has to stay on the property should be stockpiled quickly. If you build it right, there shouldn’t be any real problem with flies breeding on your compost pile, but it never hurts to build the pile as far away from the kennel as possible.
Fly Predators need to be placed around areas where droppings accumulate as well as near the compost pile for best results.
Kennels built on concrete
Dog areas with concrete runs, pens, and yard need to be washed daily. Washes that empty into sewers generally have lower rates of fly breeding and require fewer Predators. If, however, the wash dumps into a drainage area you will probably have a fly infestation problem in that area. Be sure to use the proper amount of Predators in that location to keep numbers to a minimum.
