Fly Control on the Dairy: Barn Fly IPM (1.25 credits in NY)



Fly Control on the Dairy: Barn Fly IPM

This module will provide practical information on the IPM approach to help producers minimize and manage house flies and stable flies, our two most common fly pests affecting dairy cattle in and around confinement facilities.

Although the primary focus of this IPM module is management of house and stable flies affecting dairy cattle, much of the information contained will also have applications for managing these fly pests as they affect beef cattle, horses and other animals in barns and confinement.

This information was prepared by Keith Waldron. Contact Keith at with questions about this module.

Here's what we hope you learn:

  1. Understand the importance and potential impact of house and stable flies (common nuisance and biting flies) on dairy animal health and production
