The procedures available for fly control on the farm must be adapted to the particular problem at hand. Control of flies on stock is easy if the infestation in one of horn flies occur in significant numbers. Fly control in and around buildings generally requires a combination of many types of treatment. Removal of breeding places is always important. Residual sprays, bait application, or both also are usually needed depending on the size of the infestation and degree of resistance present. Fly control practices should be established before infestations become too large and should be continued as a routine management practice throughout the fly breeding season.
