General Information

Larvadex 2SL is a soluble concentrate, which, when diluted with water according to the Directions for Use given below, will act as a larvicide to control fly species which develop in poultry manure and refuse. Larvadex 2SL controls fly infestations by breaking the life cycle at the maggot stage.

For Housefly, Lesser Housefly And Soldier Fly Control In Poultry Operations Including Layer And Breeder Chickens

Fly control in poultry operations should include appropriate sanitary and management practices to reduce the number and size of fly breeding sites. A successful sanitary and management program may allow less than constant use of insecticides. This, in turn, should prolong the effective life of such control agents.

Eliminating Fly Breeding Sites:

Certain conditions around poultry operations encourage flies and should be brought under control or eliminated as an aid to fly control. These include: Removing broken eggs and dead birds. Cleaning up of feed spills, manure spills, especially if wet. Reducing feed spills in the manure pits. Reducing moisture in manure in the pits. Repairing water leaks that cause wet manure. Cleaning out weed-choked water drainage ditches. Minimizing sources from other fly-infested animal operations in close proximity to the poultry house.

When And How To Use Larvadex 2sl

First, monitor adult flies in and near the poultry house. When the population reaches a level to cause concern, use registered adulticide baits, sprays or fogs to reduce fly numbers and breeding potential. Then, examine manure and other fly breeding areas for maggot activity. If maggots are active, treat breeding sites with Larvadex 2SL.

Mixing Application

Dilute Larvadex 2SL with water to make a 0.1% spray (see following Dilution Chart). Apply 1 gallon of finished spray per 100 sq. ft. of area over surface of manure, manure storage areas, spilled feed and other sites where maggots are active. Do not apply Larvadex 2SL more frequently than once every 21 days.

Registered baits, sprays or fogs should be used to reduce adult flies present at the onset of larvicide program and best management practices followed. They should also be used to help control any influx of adult flies from other areas.
