A Brief about the Industry and its Problem

India is the second largest producer of raw silk in the world. A lot of people are connected with this industry. With the problem of uzi flies, many of the farmers, big or small, lose their precious silkworms – the source of their income, to uzi flies. Moreover, they apply chemical sprays or poisonous pesticides to get rid of uzi flies which harm the silkworms too. Not only that, the chemical sprays and pesticides works only for one or two applications as uzi flies develops resistance to them.

The Solution – Organic Fly Trap

The fly traps offered by are organic, chemical-free, and non-poisonous. The bait inside only attracts the uzi flies inside the bag and the bag itself does not let them escape.

The most beneficial thing of organic fly trap is that because they are non-pheromone based, the bait attracts both male and female flies. This stops the reproduction system of uzi flies and thereby rapidly reducing the infestation problem.

After a long discussion and rounds of explanations regarding the problem at hand and organic fly trap as a solution to uzi fly problem, fly traps were handed over to the silk farmers for free to encourage the use of organic products in place of harmful chemicals or expensive, and in many cases, not so feasible electronic devices.
