Flies

The common housefly, Musca domestica L., is now an emerging pest in poultry farms in Indonesia. They also spread to neighbouring towns and settlements causing public health concerns. 


 

ECONOMIC IMPORTANCE

  • Flies infestation on farms causes the death of up to 80% of chicks from Salmonella 
  • Nuisance to livestock, increase the stress level so the appetite decreases and cause weight loss in livestock.
  • Egg productivity can reduce by 10% because of the bacteria on flies

FLIES MANAGEMENT PROGRAM 

  • Understanding the lifecycle can help identify effective fly control methods
  • Monitor fly activity throughout the spring and summer season
  • Check for possible resistance against active ingredients
