I've got the pen decorated like a Christmas tree with them now. I was hoping that I could spray them with something and kill them on contact

If you can find Maxforce fly granual it will do the trick. I was in the commercial pest control business for 20 years and NOTHING will kill flys like this stuff. Once they feed on it, they are dead in less than 60 seconds. Check online for it. I use it in and around the fawn pens and the feeders for the adults also.

I heard of a breeder use a product called Fly Predators. Can't speak for it myself, but the one breeder who uses it swears by it. It's not a drug, but an insect that kills the fly pupal stage. A lot of people with horses use them to control flys in the horse manure. here is the website http://www.spalding-labs.com/

We have used Fly Predators for three years now. They have reduced the number of flies by over 80%. Great product! Make sure you start them early, April or so, and use them into September. They take about a month to start showing signs of improvement but once your going you won't want to stop.
