Automatic fly spray systems?
I once boarded at a barn that had these. The results were wonderful - it would spray intermittently during the day in summer and killed all the flies. The barn was fly-free. The flies were absolutely horrible here last summer in my current barn and we used everything...strips, fly predators and gallons and gallons of fly spray. It will be $1400 to have the system put in my barn. Any feedback or opinions?? Worth it or not? The chemical aspect of it bothers me, but so do the flies!

The barn where I board at has someone come in twice in the warm season and spray for flies, spiders, etc. They do take out all water and feed buckets before hand. It makes a huge difference.
Ive only seen the small auto fly sprayer that hang on the wall. Don't know too much about them to get a good or bad review.

The barn I board at has one, other local barns are swarmed with flies already (thank you TX weather!) and there's none at mine. And no scraping bot fly eggs off this year :)

I have had ours for about 25 years I love it. It is adjustable so you can run it less in the spring and fall and more in the summer. I know in one day if it is malfunctioning.
It doesn't break very often either, I think I have replaced the pump and a few nozzles in 25 years. You do have to know how to close it in the winter if you freeze, it needs to have mineral oil pumped in it for the winter.
Some boarding barns around here charge extra $$ during the summer to pay for the spray.

be sure the spray and mist is away from feed and waterers. i was considering something,but i would have to redo the mist lines. \Have you tried the fly predators ? more natural way, i hear good and bad about them. I got a free sample but the weather got nasty , odd cold storm passed through, so i think they died.
