    I am trying to figure out if fly parasites are harmful to bees.

    Hello Bobbilynne –

    Tiny fly parasites are small, harmless (to humans and animals) beneficial insects that nature has programmed to attack and kill filth flies in their pupal stage. They do NOT attack honey bees. For best results, we recommend using at least one fly trap and perhaps even baits to reduce the number of adult flies.

    Good luck!
