USE INFORMATION: ClariFly® Larvicide Livestock Premix 0.67% (ClariFly® Premix) is intended for blending into feeds or supplements for beef and dairy cattle, horses, and swine rations to control manure breeding flies. This product prevents emergence of adult flies from the manure of the treated cattle, horses, and swine. Use this product only in cattle, horses, and swine supplements/rations.

Use ClariFly® Premix as part of an integrated pest management program aimed at reducing fly populations in the treated environment. Consult your veterinarian or retailer for program recommendations. In order to achieve optimum fly control, use this product in conjunction with Starbar® premise and on-animal products as well as good management and sanitation practices.

Directions For Use

It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

ClariFly® Premix contains diflubenzuron, which prevents the development of house flies, stable flies, face flies, horn flies, and manure breeding flies in the manure of treated beef and dairy cattle, horses, and swine, but is not effective against existing adult flies. Start feeding ClariFly® Premix early in the spring 30 days before flies begin to appear, and continue feeding throughout the summer and into the fall until cold weather restricts fly activity. In some cases, supplemental fly control measures may be needed in and around pastures, barns, and feedlots to control adult house and stable flies which can breed in other decaying organic matter or silage in the area, or that migrate in from other locations.

The dosage of ClariFly® Premix is proportional to the animal’s body weight and must be offered daily throughout the entire fly season. The following table provides the feeding rate for all approved species.

IMPLEMENT THE OPTIMUM IPM

House flies, stable flies, face flies and horn flies are pervasive and resilient pests. Make the most of your control efforts by incorporating an integrated pest management program (IPM) with ClariFly® Larvicide Livestock Premix 0.67% (ClariFly® Premix). The ideal program will hit flies where they breed, and can help reduce populations to manageable levels.

IPM PROGRAM OVERVIEW

PLANNING

● Assess your operation and find the fly hot spots.

● Establish a plan to minimize pest damage by the most economical means, utilizing various control measures.

● Set an action threshold, a point at which pest populations or environmental conditions indicate that pest control action must be taken.

● Train other employees on the plan.

IMPLEMENTATION

Sanitation Control

- Keep buildings in good repair and your grounds free of debris where flies can breed.

- Keep animal areas as clean and dry as possible. Flies lay their eggs in manure, decaying silage, spilled feed, and soiled bedding.

- Calf hutches that are clean, well ventilated, and relocated with regularity will address a major breeding area for flies.

- Keep feed storage areas, bunks, and water troughs in good repair, clean, and as dry as possible.

- Keep grass and weeds around barns, feeders, hutches, and manure piles cut low. Overgrown areas provide an ideal resting and breeding ground for flies.

Non-Insecticidal Controls

- The Starbar® line of sticky/jug traps can be used for controlling adult flies and are ideal for keeping track of control efforts.

- Traps are good for areas where conventional chemical control is out of the question such as milking parlors and feeding areas.

Traditional Chemical Controls

- Scatter baits from Starbar such as QuikStrike®, Golden Malrin®, and Cyanarox™ baits are a form of chemical control that can be used in rotation to fight fly resistance. Scatter baits can be used in a variety of locations (consult labels) around the operation. However, keep away from animals and children.

IGR Larvicide Controls

- Incorporate an IGR larvicide into all cattle, horse and/or swine feeds.

EVALUATION

● Keep track of fly populations with speck cards as well as non-insecticidal jug and sticky traps.

● Document your progress with a concise record of locations, conditions, and action taken.

● Rotate traditional chemical control products to fight fly resistance.

No one aspect of an IPM will eliminate flies. Incorporation of all these steps into one program is key. ClariFly® Premix is an important component to help control fly populations in a successful IPM program on your operation.
