A Fast and Effective Way to Control Flies in the Farms


A Fast and Effective Way to Control Flies in the Farms

Flies transmit many diseases, irritate animals causing stress and reduced production, and are a general nuisance.

Houseflies have always been of medical and veterinary disease importance globally. They are important nuisance pests of domestic animals and  people, as well as the main fly vectors of food borne and animal pathogens. Due to indiscriminate migration, ability to fly long distances, and attraction to both decaying organic materials and places where food is prepared and stored, houseflies accentuate the risk of foodborne pathogens.
House flies can transmit more than 100 human and animal disease-causing organisms, including protozoa, bacteria, viruses, rickettsia, fungi, and worms.
Adult houseflies transmit Campylobacter sp., Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus sp., Salmonella sp., Shigella sp. and Enterobacteriaceae has been also reported.
House flies are considered intermediate hosts for tapeworms and may transmit ascarids to caged birds. Flies mechanically carry ascarid and other nematode eggs on their feet from manure to pens, feed, and water. Fly maggots ingest tapeworm and ascarid eggs from the poultry manure and retain them in the gut until maturity. In turn, infected flies are ingested by the feeding bird.
There is also concern that flies may transmit avian influenza, circovirus, and potentially non- enveloped viruses.
 
Flies are enhancing the antibiotic resistance problems by vectoring non- pathogenic bacteria carrying antibiotic resistance genes.

BIOPRID is a synergistic combination of muscicide, two fly attractants that lures and instantly kills them. A bittering agent is used that prevents animals to consume it.sheep, goat, pigs, dog kennels, horse stables, camel, feed mills, bins, manure landfills, public housing, clinics and hospitals.
