Four swine-finishing units were equipped with different waste-disposal systems to determine their effectiveness in preventing development of the house fly, Musca domestica L. Each unit was completely screened to prevent contamination from outside sources. No insecticides were used. One of the 4 was a standard shed-type house used as a control. The other 3 units were equipped with new and improved waste-disposal systems. Results from 2 years of study indicate that house fly production in and around swine finishing units can be greatly reduced by using 1 of the 3 improved methods of waste disposal described.
