Feed Grade Fly Control Powder
Properties and Description.
Cyromazine is a white crystalline powder also known as “Fly fall” or “Maggots-off” powder. It is a carefully engineered pesticide product designed specifically to tackle the huge problem flies (Dipterans) constitute on the farm. Cyromazine in powder form acts as an insect growth regulator which attacks the reproductive cycle of flies at the larva stage. It is used as a premix with animal feed (poultry, cattle, pig). It passes through the digestive system and is passed out in the faeces where it exerts its action as a residue in the manure, destroying all the larvae stages of all Dipterans it comes in contact with, thus effectively curbing the growth and development of new flies. It is very safe and practically non-toxic to birds and mammals and is completely eliminated; even when the dosage is increased to 200 times, it does not affect animal growth rate, egg production rate, survival rate, hatching rate, weight gain, fertility and feed conversion rate. Environmentally, it breaks down naturally in the soil; the manure can still be used as fertilizer on crops with no adverse effects.
Indication: Cyromazine is considered effective and highly recommended in poultry kept both in cages and on ground. It has proven the solution in cases of recurrent fly infestation which affect animal productivity negatively. It is also useful in pig, cattle and goats. Generally, there is reduction in pen odour and ammonia concentration. This also leads to a reduction in the occurrence of respiratory diseases. It is quick in action and has no drug-interactions.
Dosage and Administration:
Cyromazine is approved for continuous inclusion in feeds for poultry at the medication dosage of 5 mg/kg (0.5g/kg BW) once a day for 4-6 weeks to improve the barn environment. Thus Pure Cyromazine can be utilized at 50g/tonne of feed until significant reduction in fly population is noticed.
Cost-Breakdown: 1kg is available for N8000. This translates to N8/g. Thus to a 50kg bag of feed, the farmer would require 2.5g of Cyromazine which is N20. This is quite cost effective, bearing in mind the multiple benefits accruable.
Storage: In a dry, airtight facility place away from sunlight.
Presentations: 25kg, 1kg, 500g.
