Nature's Own Fly Control

In humid environments where organic matter accumulates, flies can multiply very quickly causing stress and there by affect the growth of the pigs. Although the widely available chemical pesticides will provide some ‘damage control’, they also come with safety and resistance implications and can be very time consuming.

Are you and your pigs affected by flies and struggling to keep them under control?

Have you come across biological fly control using beneficial insects? It has been a very popular strategy amongst pig farmers on the continent to control flies.

BESTICO Integrated Fly Management System

The key to successful fly control is always prevention at its source. Our integrated fly control system is a unique approach. We utilise a range of different insects and baited fly traps to target each life stage of the fly.

Biomite (Fly egg predators)

Predatory mites targeting fly eggs in any fly breeding during the summer months.

Biofly (Fly larvae predators)

Fly larvae control for tanks, channels, collection pits and lagoons.

Biowasp (Fly pupae parasites)

Fly pupae control for buildings with deep litter, calf pens and hutches, muck heaps etc.

Bucket Trap (Bucket fly trap)

An innovative bucket trap intended to target the adult life stage of flies around the farm yard. When combined with BESTICO’s fly bait, it is extremely effective at capturing high volumes of adult flies.
