By Mike Catangui, Ph. D |

Controlling flies indoors

 1. To immediately reduce adult house fly (Musca domestica) and dark-eyed fruit fly (Drosophila repleta) numbers, apply ULD® BP-100, Stryker® 100 or EverGreen® 100 as a fog over the animals using a Hurricane™ fogger or a STIHL® SR 450 mist blower. Apply undiluted at the rate of one fluid ounce per 1,000 cubic feet of space. Reapply as necessary. Fog inside the rooms and the immediate outside aisles and walkways. Also fog areas where flies tend to congregate such as on the walls, pen railings, ceilings, windows, siding, eaves and fan housing.
