Overview

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!
Favorite Features:
  • Beneficial insects stop pest flies from developing, helping to control the fly population at your farm
  • They're a chemical-free solution you can feel good about using
  • You'll prevent flies from developing before they can bother your horse
  • Spend just five minutes releasing them each month and enjoy a fly-free farm all summer
  • Put them on AutoShip ad you'll stop stressing about your fly control program and save 5% on every shipment

Ingredients
(Maintenance Dose = )
Ingredient Amount
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 3.2 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hit or miss I received 4 shipments and was so excited after the first one. The flies really seemed to be well controlled. Every subsequent order (3 of them!) failed to hatch or had very little activity compared to the first order. The flies came back full swing. I followed the directions on the packaging and it just didn't work out for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inconsistent Quality I've gotten these delivered a few times now. The first batch was great. The second, they arrived as normal but then all hatched and died in a day. I looked at them in the morning, there was a little bit of activity and I planned to release them when it got a little warmer. When I looked again, they were all dead.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as good as fly predators Was hoping these would work as the fly predators did. Didn’t help at all, in fact, most of them never even hatched.
Date published: 2022-08-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best fly control for barns Fly predators work and are affordable at the price point they are at now. Very happy with this product. Highly recommend them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed This is the second year I’ve bought these and I’m not seeing any difference in fly population. Our paddocks are cleaned twice daily, manure is removed from the property all together on a regular basis and the flys are horrendous. The last two shipments I received were already hatched as well and when I opened the shipping envelope they were all over inside that. I love smart pak but I’ll be cancelling my subscription.
Date published: 2022-06-07
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The packaging does not keep the bugs contained! The first order I received, the bugs have not hatched yet. I left them on my counter to start hatching. I've used other brands in the past and this is how I've always done it with no problem. I soon noticed that I had the fly stoppers crawling all over my counter. I called SmartPak and let them know and they apologized and said this was not normal and was going to send me a replacement pack. I just got my second order today and I opened the envelope and they were crawling around inside the envelope they were shipped in. I immediately had to take them outside so I didn't get them in my house. I'm switching to another company that packages these better (and is a bit cheaper). So I have no idea if they actually work or not because I can't deal with having bugs in my house. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They really work! I rarely write reviews, I just read them. But these bugs really have helped my horses. I love not seeing flies on my horses face! We haven’t used masks this year. They are rarely hatched when I get them, I leave them outside in the shade, I live in South Texas. I check each day and dump them when they are really active, usually 3-4 days later. My horses are very happy.
Date published: 2021-09-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from They work!! These are a definite MUST to any fly reducing program. I started them in April and used disposable fly traps as well. Here is July and I have little to no flies. Horses no longer need to wear fly masks or spray!! I have 5 animals and bought the 6-10animal pack. You will not be disappointed!!!
Date published: 2021-07-23
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!
Date published: 2021-03-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Less Flies I have noticed fewer flies since using fly stoppers. Will continue to use them.
