Abstract

A complex predator population inside a good fly-tight house—coupled with careful manure and water management—can control flies in high-rise poultry houses.Deep-pit poultry houses can be odor and fly free if managed properly. House design and fan placement for proper air movement have the greatest influence on domestic fly production, according to this study.
