Kristy –

Fly Parasites should be released whenever pest flies are present at the following rates:

• large animals (horse, cow, etc.) – 500 parasites per animal
• medium animals (sheep, goat, etc.) – 250 parasites per animal
• small animals (birds, rabbits, etc.) – 5 parasites per animal
• manure/compost piles – 5 parasites per cubic foot

For best results, start releasing before flies become a problem!
