How to use AppiFly

Application AppiFly

  • Remove the lid at the top
  • Hang the cylinders on a nail or wire in the sections where you have problems

To maximize the effectiveness of AppiFly it’s necessary to avoid spilling of food. Manure which is too dry slows the development of the predatory fly because it lays its eggs at the interface between wet and dry. By regularly wetting the manure, you will more quickly achieve the desired effect. However, the manure should not be too wet either and there should always be a thin crust.

Best working conditions for AppiFly

Efficacy reduces at low (under 15°C) or high temperatures (higher than 38°C).
