Yes, it’s that special time of year that we all love: Fly Season! For all of my fellow homesteaders currently in the throes of fly season and the ones about to experience it, I’m here to deliver my top four strategies on how to mitigate our pesky little friends. I provide in depth details on each strategy and all of the necessary links to access the tools mentioned in the episode.
My Top Four Strategies for Natural Fly Control:
- Fly predators: “Good” bugs fighting “Bad” bugs. Get your fly predators at http://bit.ly/2KUZhin
- Manure Management: Flies adore poop. If you don’t keep it under control, you have no chance to control flies.
- DIY Fly Sprays: Who knew essential oils were so effective? I rely heavily on my homemade sprays to help me survive the fly onslaught.
- Trap Them: Simple, yet effective.
