Don’t Let Flies Take Your Prize

Using ClariFly® Larvicide is simple. As a feed additive, it is incorporated into an animal’s feed, and that is all the work you have to do to help prevent flies. Leave it and forget it. Spend less time on fly control and more time clearing space on your wall for that top prize.

Flies are much more than a nuisance. They are known to spread a number of serious diseases that can directly impact animal health. The presence of swarming, biting flies can cause skin lesions and put your animals off their feed, preventing them from gaining weight and reaching top production, all while providing uncomfortable living conditions.

Everyone who raises animals for show — particularly 4H and FFA participants — should understand that fly management programs need to be proactive. ClariFly® Larvicide is effective as part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. Practicing good sanitation, maintaining building repairs and strategically utilizing baits, traps and sprays such as those in the Starbar® line of products, along with ClariFly® Larvicide, can significantly reduce fly populations. Start ClariFly® Larvicide in your show animals’ feed early in the spring before flies begin to appear. Continue it through the summer and into the fall, until cold weather reduces or ends fly activity.

Unlike conventional fly treatments, ClariFly® Larvicide is a proven feed additive that passes through the animal’s digestive system into the manure where nuisance flies lay their eggs. While conventional insecticides attack the nervous system of insects, ClariFly® Larvicide works by breaking the fly life cycle, rather than through direct toxicity, preventing manure breeding flies from developing into biting, breeding adults.

The active ingredient in ClariFly® Larvicide takes care of the flies that impact your animals, as it passes through the digestive system, and then sits in fresh manure, where flies lay their eggs. The mode of action in the active ingredient prevents house flies, stable flies, face flies and horn flies from developing into adults by interrupting their life cycles. With ClariFly® Larvicide, you get cost-effective fly control that requires very minimal additional work and effort. ClariFly® Larvicide is approved for beef and dairy cattle, swine, horses, sheep and goats.
