 This guide is designed to increase understanding of the importance of fly control for reducing the risk of nuisance complaints. It is intended to assist CFO owners or operators in designing and implementing a fly management program specific to their operation. This guide provides:
  • knowledge of fly biology,
  • identification of common fly species found in Alberta CFOs, and
  • management options for fly control.
The provided checklists are a tool for CFO owners or operators to help identify sites where flies may be breeding on their operation. They can also be used as weekly cleanup and maintenance schedules for key fly breeding habitats. Please feel free to download and use the checklists as part of a fly management program.
