Jeff from Moreland, Georgia writes,
how and where do the flies die?
using a bait station, do the flies die "inside" the station, or do they fly out of the station and die elsewhere? If they die elsewhere, would it be dangerous for my chickens to consume the dead fly?
There is not a set place that the flies will die. Some may die inside the station, some may not. It will depend on how much the fly eats and how far it makes it before the poison takes effect. The chance of any secondary poisoning to your chickens is extremely unlikely as the poison once ingested by the fly is only going to be a toxicity level to something the size of a fly. The only problem you would have is if the chickens were to consume the bait directly. If you have any further concerns you can contact the manufacturer Bayer 1-800-331-2867.
