Why We Love This

Fly Stoppers™ are the smart way to make your farm a no-fly zone! These tiny, beneficial bugs stop adult pest flies from developing by feeding upon and breeding within the developing (pupal) stages of manure breeding flies.

Fly Stoppers™ work by seeking out their target host – the fly pupae – and depositing their eggs inside them. These eggs then hatch and begin to grow and feed on the developing fly, thus stopping the adult pest fly from hatching. Once mature, the Fly Stoppers emerge from the fly pupae to look for a mate and the female Fly Stoppers™ continue to lay eggs in fly pupaes.

While Fly Stoppers™ reproduce in approximately three weeks to replenish the beneficial insect population, pest flies do reproduce at a faster rate than Fly Stoppers. That’s why Fly Stoppers must be reintroduced to your property on a regular basis. We recommend releasing a shipment of Fly Stoppers™ every three to four weeks throughout fly season for maximum results. If you order them on AutoShip, you’ll save 5% on every shipment and you won’t have to remember to reorder every month!

Please note: Hatching can take up to 10 days, and Fly Stoppers like to be warm and cozy before they hatch. Wrapping them in a pillow case and storing on top of a fridge or hot water heater can help!

Instructions

Instructions for Use:
  • Fly Stoppers are shipped via US Mail as parasitized fly pupae in wood shavings.
  • When received, check for evidence of hatching.
  • Once a few have hatched, simply disperse small handfuls or scoops around your property into "hot spot" breeding areas, such near manure piles, under water troughs, below bedding, the corners of pens and paddocks, and feeding sites.
  • Cover with dirt to protect pupaes.
  • If you do not see movement within the bag, you can speed up the process by placing the bag in an old pillowcase and setting it on top of your hot water heater or refrigerator. Make sure you check them every day for fly parasite activity.
  • It may take up to 14 days for hatching to occur at various time during the fly season.
  • You can release the Fly Stoppers before they hatch; however, they must be covered with a thin layer of manure or ground cover to prevent birds and ants from consuming the unhatched fly parasites.

    Fly Stoppers™ is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 56.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Worker I would like to point out these work and produce a night and day difference from having flies all over our ponies. . . to hardly being able find one on them. I know they work and people give up too quickly before seeing the effects these amazing insects can do! We keep our manure in ONE PILE, and I think this is a factor that really helps fly stoppers target where the majority of fly eggs are. Second, do NOT miss any treatments of using fly stoppers consistently, our barn uses them YEAR ROUND. Our: horses, ponies, mini horses, mini donkeys and all the other animals are happy and fly free these days thanks to fly stoppers. We will use this system for the rest of our life. If we could add another star we would!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Less Flies I have noticed fewer flies since using fly stoppers. Will continue to use them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bye flies! We use these at the barn and this year I decided to try them at my house around the dog kennel. Has helped a lot in reducing fly populations.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was happy, but the last two shipments were duds. I have been buying these since early spring to get ahead of the fly population. I've used Arbico organics for several years, was happy to see SmartPak had a version so I gave them a try. They seemed to be doing comparable job, but I decided to go up in size just for the added protection. I have used the premium shipping right from the start, having them delivered every 3 weeks. I have received two shipments now of the double sized order, and neither have hatched. I have been using fly predators for years, so it's not a user issue, it's a product issue. Needless to say, I'm disappointed, and will be canceling this autoship and requesting a refund.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from SmartPak needs to be more forthcoming I have used a competitor's brand of wasps for a few years before SmartPak came out with their version. I switched to SmartPak, because I love the company and their products. After some time using their version, Fly Stoppers, my fly problem was never really improved. I tried doubling the amount, shipping more frequently, and then I came across a Podcast that named specific species of wasps. After digging into SmartPaks description of their Fly Stoppers, and chatting with a SP staff, they are not willing to disclose the type of wasp used in their "proprietary blend" of Fly Stoppers. This is a big red flag for me!! I am sad to say, this is the first time I have been disappointed in SmartPak. I cancelled my Fly Stoppers, and will be ordering from the competition from here on out.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from very pleased used them for the first time last year. I house three horses on my property. Two belong to me and one to a friend. I never told her I was using them because I wanted to see if she noticed a difference. we went to the vet and he brought them up and I responded " yes I am trying them this year" My friend had know clue I was using fly stoppers or even what they were but she did comment that she had noticed less flies around my property. We are definitely going to try them again this year. Now if anyone can come up with something to control the Horseflies that would be a God send

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These little bugs really make a difference! The flies were starting off horrendous this spring with all the rain we had. The horses were miserable and I was doing all I could to reduce flies and they were getting worse by day. I started the fly stoppers and within a week the flies were obviously reduced and the horses were barely swishing their tails! I went to auto delivery every three weeks and the results were amazing. I’ve done fly predators in the past from different distributors but never saw such an obvious difference as I did this season. will definitely do again next season!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible This is the 2nd year I’ve tried these and there’s no difference in the terrible fly population. I’ve done everything recommended including starting at the beginning of fly season, over ordering the fly stoppers, bait and traps. And as far as 100% happiness guaranteed, all I got was a oh, sorry they didn’t work for you. Total waste of money.
    Date published: 2019-09-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work well if used correctly Any negative review on these I firmly believe is because they are being used incorrectly. Please read the directions: buy for the appropriate amount of horses first of all. Second: release when they are just starting to hatch. Third: release in the areas that have the most manure. Fourth: rotate release sites. Finally: I do recommend a "double dose" at first. For example: my farm has 12 horses and we are next to another small farm with horses and livestock. I use the 10-15 horse (1.5 bags) order every 3 weeks (as recommended). Initially, I released the 1.5 bags with another 1 bag a week later as a "boost". Since then, continuing every three weeks. Our flies have been cut down to 10% of what they were before. I wish I had taken pictures. Moral of the story: do not try to cut corners. The recommendations are there for a reason. Follow the instructions and these work very very well.
