What's the Buzz? IPM for flies on cattle.

Wednesday, July 24, 2019

Tucker's Black Angus Ranch 299 Hazen Road, North Lawrence, NY

Fly pests can affect animal health, decrease milk production and weight gain, transmit disease causing agents, reduce grazing time, annoy and irritate animals and more.

Who are the usual summer time pest species and what can you do about them?


From this field meeting you will learn to correctly identify the most important fly pests affecting cattle in the northeast. You will also learn techniques to determine if fly populations are at numbers that can cause economic injury. Learn the options available for controlling fly pests affecting animals including the role of parasitoids, predators, dung beetles, use of effective fly catching traps, and what you should know about making insecticide use decisions. This meeting has both organic and conventional options for managing fly pests on cattle and other livestock.
