Starbar® fly baits and abatement strips are specifically designed for use in areas of your operation where fly activity is prevalent at low levels. These products take into account the fact that flies tend to feed near ground level. With a sugar base and a combination of attractants, Starbar® fly baits and abatement strips effectively entice flies to feed on them. Another effective option is the latest solution to the Starbar® product line, Exhalt WDG™ Insect Growth Regulator. It provides versatility as a dry granule or coarse spray, designed to protect livestock by interrupting the life cycles of labeled pests.
Let’s take a look at how Starbar® products have you covered.
With the active ingredient dinotefuran, QuikStrike® Fly Bait kills nuisance house flies quickly and controls those resistant to carbamates and pyrethrin sprays. Its homogenous formulation contains (Z)-9-tricosene to attract flies and can be used as labeled where house flies are a problem.
The standard in fly baits for more than 40 years, Golden Malrin® Fly Bait draws flies in to feed with Muscamone® fly attractant. Golden Malrin® Fly Bait features the active ingredient methomyl to help offer precise control.
Cyanarox® Insecticidal Bait, a ready-to-use granular bait to control house flies, contains the active ingredient cyantraniliprole. It is both highly attractive and highly effective in controlling house fly populations. Cyanarox® Insecticidal Bait can be used indoors in a bait station and outdoors in listed areas where high fly densities are most apparent.
DuraStrike™ Fly Scatter Bait is a ready-to-use granular bait for use in and around residential, commercial and agricultural structures to control house and fruit flies and kill blow flies indoors. It can also be used in rotation with Cyanarox® Insecticidal Bait, QuikStrike® Fly Bait, and Golden Malrin® Fly Bait to form a formidable, four-pronged rotational approach to manage against resistance.
QuikStrike® Fly Bait Spray easily covers walls and other surfaces in and around dairy, swine and poultry operations, and other livestock facilities, attracting and quickly killing house flies in hard-to-reach places where scatter baits can’t reach.
The QuikStrike® II Fly Abatement Strip contains a triple-action attractant and an active ingredient that kills flies minutes after they begin to feed. Flies feed low and rest up high. Simply place the device 4 ft. from the ground or lower, or in a bucket for ideal control. The QuikStrike® II Fly Abatement Strip can be used around any labeled operation (including milking parlors) where flies are a problem.
Exhalt WDG™ Insect Growth Regulator is a granular product that may be applied as a granular larvicide or dispersed into water and applied as a liquid spray. The active ingredient is novaluron, an insect growth regulator (IGR) that affects developing immature stages of listed insects and prevents molting to adult forms.
Featuring a range of active ingredients, Starbar® fly baits can be used together as part of a rotational program to combat fly resistance. Consistent monitoring is crucial to long-term fly control. QuikStrike® Fly Bait, Golden Malrin® Fly Bait, Cyanarox™ Insecticidal Bait, and DuraStrike™ Fly Scatter Bait can be used in rotation as part of an integrated pest management (IPM) program to fight house flies and resistance.
