  Abstract  
  Large modem poultry houses in Japan often experience serious fly problems. The house fly, Musca domestica and the lesser house fly, Fannia canicularis are common in poultry houses from spring through fall. The house fly can be controlled effectively using chitin inhibitors but a resistance problem has been observed when this fly is found in a windowless deep bed poultry houses. The lesser house fly, on the other hand, can be effectively controlled using paint on bait (POB) treatment. When the manure boards in deep bed poultry houses are moved to a lower position the lesser house fly is replaced as a pest by the house fly which can be dealt with effectively using diflubenzuron. A fly attractant was extracted from bamboo shoots and found to be very effective against the lesser house fly.
