Central Life Sciences has announced that ClariFly Larvicide 267 has received approval for a new feeding rate for gestating sow diets. ClariFly Larvicide 267 is a feed supplement that prevents nuisance and disease-spreading flies from developing in and emerging from the manure of treated swine. The lowered inclusion rate of 0.7 pounds of ClariFly Larvicide 267 per ton of feed was designed for limit-based feeding and will require less of the product to be administered to achieve fly control.
“This new clearance for gestating sow diets supports our mission to provide swine operations with effective fly control as cost efficiently as possible,” says Nate Brown, business manager of Livestock Feed Additives for Central Life Sciences. “With our recent findings confirming that flies can spread diseases to pigs, it’s important that producers take every effort possible to protect the health and profitability of their operation.”
Central Life Sciences partnered with Iowa State University and Grant Allison, DVM at the Walcott (Iowa) Veterinary Clinic, on a 2018 study that confirmed a revelation for the swine industry — flies can infect pigs with diseases including porcine epidemic diarrhea virus and Senecavirus A. Following the study, Allison recommended that swine operations implement comprehensive fly-control programs, beginning with a feed-through larvicide such as ClariFly Larvicide 267.
Unlike conventional insecticides that attack the nervous system of insects through direct toxicity, ClariFly Larvicide 267 instead works by interrupting the fly’s life cycle. When mixed into swine feed, it passes through the pig’s digestive system and disrupts the normal molting process of fly larvae, preventing the emergence of adult flies by as much as 96.7%.
ClariFly Larvicide 267 is specially formulated for use in swine feeds, and is approved for use in supplements, complete feeds, concentrates and premixes. Furthermore, ClariFly Larvicide 267 is designed for operations with micro-ingredient mixing systems at their feed manufacturing facilities.
For the most efficient control of house flies, stable flies and dark-eyed fruit flies, consider using ClariFly Larvicide 267 as part of a comprehensive integrated pest management program.
