Fly Control Products

February 6, 2024

Following our successful talk in November on alternative fly control, we are pleased to announce we are now able to sell fly buckets and bait traps from Bestico. Fly traps are an alternative to using pour on or spot on products which can have a negative effect on the beneficial insect populations during the summer. Fly buckets are the best alternative option for herds that graze in the summer, other options using parasitic insects to control nuisance flies are available for herds that house all year. If you are interested in options for housed cattle, we would advise booking a visit with Bestico so they can assess your farm and offer a tailored plan for which type of insects would offer the best solution.

Bucket traps are best used from April/May onwards. A bait block is needed for each trap which should then be kept topped up with water to attract the flies. Most people require two blocks for the grazing season, the first should be changed after around 60 days. The bucket can be washed at the end of the season to be stored and re-used the following year. Buckets cost £17.50 and bait blocks cost £19.90 (all prices ex VAT). Once ordered, products will be available within a couple of days. There is a small shipping cost so to minimise this we will try to place multiple orders at once so please get in touch early if you would like to order.
