Fly Fact 1

Nutrient demand increases as a direct response to blood loss. When the blood-feeding fly population is significant enough to cause the cow’s body to divert nutrients into replacing lost blood, milk production may suffer.

Fly Fact 2

Flies transmit diseases including anthrax, brucellosis and tuberculosis, as well as Staphylococcus and Streptococcus mastitis infections.

Fly Fact 3

On average 1 adult cow can produce up to 148 lbs of manure providing a perfect breeding ground for flies.

Dairy Cow Icon
Nuisance flies are a vector of disease and an irritant to cattle on a dairy operation, as well as to the people that work on the operation. Because of the confined nature of a dairy it is important that ClariFly® Larvicide is part of an entire integrated pest management (IPM) program for effectively controlling fly populations. To be fully effective it is important to start ClariFly® Larcvicide in milk and milk replacer at the calf stage and continue it through adulthood. If you don't, the flies that start in calving hutches can quickly spread throughout a dairy making all IPM efforts ineffective.
Fly Fact 1

Horn flies take up to 40 blood meals per day causing irritation and affecting cattle comfort.

Fly Fact 2

Horn flies are a known vector for the bacteria that causes beef mastitis, a disease that could have a direct effect on calf weaning weights.

Fly Fact 3

The economic losses from horn flies can be attributed to reduced weight gains, decreased feed efficiency caused by loss of blood and excessive energy expenditure to dislodge the flies.

Cow
Ranchers need to do everything they can to protect their investment. Part of that should be controlling flies with ClariFly® Larvicide in the feed mix for time on pasture. Flies spread disease, hinder productivity, and cause stress - all of which can have an effect on beef cattle profitability. In a confined situation house flies, stable flies, horn flies and face flies could all have an impact on beef cattle development. When ClariFly® Larvicide is part of an integrated pest management (IPM) program, fly populations can be controlled and beef cattle can continue to develop profitably.

Fly Fact 1

Biting flies play a key role in the development of “summer sores”- non-healing skin lesions, characterized by intense itching and the formation of exuberant granulation tissue (proud flesh).

Fly Fact 2

Stable flies will feed on blood from horses and practically any warm blooded animal including humans, pets and other livestock. Their bites are very painful and can send a horse into a frenzy.

Fly Fact 3

Horn flies feed on the shoulders, neck, withers and abdomen of horses. Horn flies often feed on the ventral midline and can be a cause of midline dermatitis - an inflammation of the skin characterized by extreme itching and irritation.

Equine Icon
Equine fly control is not so much an issue of economics as it is quality of life. Fly populations can get out of control quickly, it is important to have an integrated pest management program (IPM) in place that includes ClariFly® Larvicide. Parasitic flies attack horses in areas where they are not able to defend themselves inflicting painful bites as they draw blood meals. This severely affects equine comfort and can be a threat to their health. Incorporating Clarifly® Larvicide into your equine mineral tubs will help improve the life of your animal as well as the environments where they live.

Fly Fact 1

Fly impact on feedlot profitability can be measured within an economic threshold defined as the level of flies in which the economic loss is equal to the cost of controlling.

Fly Fact 2

The economic injury level for feeder cattle is when the stable fly population reaches an average of about five flies per front leg.

Fly Fact 3

The economic threshold of just five flies per animal showed a reduction in feed efficiency that resulted in an average loss of $8.51 per animal per season.

feedlot cow icon
Adding ClariFly® Larvicide in a feedlot's mix is a consistent way to ensure that there is always something being done to control nuisance flies. Because of the nature of the confinement and the constant rotation of cattle, fly control can be a challenge on a feedlot. Unchecked, fly populations can grow quickly and have a direct effect on cattle feeding and weight gain. Diligent attention to integrated pest management (IPM) practices and ClariFly® Larvicide can help keep feedlot cattle fly free and on feed.
Fly Fact 1

The common house fly, which is worldwide in distribution, is by far the greatest problem in farrowing and weaning houses.

Fly Fact 2

Major outbreaks of greasy pig and coccidiosis can be maintained by very high fly populations.

Fly Fact 3

When sows are sick with mastitis, flies are attracted to the udder and skin surfaces in great numbers and they can be responsible for enhancing severe outbreaks.

swine icon
Clarifly® Larvicide gives swine operators an opportunity for continual fly control. Adding ClariFly® Larvicide to feed provides one of the simplest and most cost effective fly solutions available at just over a penny per animal. Flies are a known disease vector. Not only are they a threat to swine but also to the people who work in a swine operation. Using ClariFly® Larvicide should be a part of all that you do to keep your swine healthy and your operation running smoothly.
