In fly control repelling is not the best option as flies are said to travel even 20km in search of organic waste, moist poultry droppings is one of the best breeding ground for flies, when we repel them they will not go to the place of origin but to nearby dwellings causing huge social problems, the flies should be attracted and killed, the larva should be tackled. In my opinion management of water pressure and nipple leakage will solve 90% of the problem
