Composting your manure can reduce the number of stable flies on your farm. KPP shares the results of an interesting study.
From the KPP Tips & Topics Blog:
Composting your manure can reduce the number of stable flies on your farm. In a study done in Florida, soiled bedding was placed in a compost pile and turned every few days.
