It is our mission to promote a cost effective natural and biological solutions for fly control around Canadian farms and stables.
Goodbugs.ca provides natural, biological solutions to fly problems with the key objective of reducing the use of chemical pesticides.
It is our mission to promote a cost effective “green solution” for fly control around Canadian farms and stables. Biological control does require an understanding of fly biology and that there is a natural balance between good bugs (predators and parasites) and bad pest bugs.
Biological control is not eradication but instead it is a reduction process in the pest populations to a level that provides the same or better benefits attained by using chemical pesticides.
Hello, my name is Alan Miscavish, president of Goodbugs Ltd. Goodbugs was formed by my in-laws, Greg and Heidi Bromley over 20 years ago. After many great memories, they decided it was time to retire and I took over Goodbugs in the spring of 2019.
Being raised on a family farm for nearly 25 years has taught me a lot about farming and their way of life. Those years on the farm I would not trade for anything. Feel free to browse through my website and please contact me for more information.
Thank you, Alan.
We have been using fly predators every Summer for the past 7 or 8 years. I feel very fortunate to have found a reliable, cost effective local source of bugs. I can wholeheartedly recommend not only the bugs themselves as a very effective, environmentally friendly part of a fly prevention strategy, but also Good Bugs as a very reliable and friendly source of predators.

Our neighbour was using fly parasites last year and raved about how they worked. We did notice fewer flies last year but thought it was just a natural occurrence. We decided to try the parasites this year and WOW. The flies at both of our barns are so low you hardly notice them - not like in previous years. We have been converted!
