Effective control of flies on the field.

With Desintec InsektEx pour-on, AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG offers a new product to successfully protect cattle against musca osiris and midges. Desintec InsektEx pour-on is a registered biocide based on pyrethroids. This ready-to-use solution for external use helps reduce the problems caused by flies and midges.

Due to the European Biocides Regulation, pour-on formulations can also be registered as biocide products and be used in dairy farms. “Pipunculidae, horn flies, gadflies, and other insect types irritate herds of cattle in summer,” explains Dieter Jürgens, product manager at Desintec. “These insects don't just transmit diseases, but also mean that the cattle are uncomfortable and stressed. This can be recognised through constant tail-whipping and head-shaking. In the milking parlour, the defensive actions of the animals due to frequently striking off milking tools also means greater stress for milking personnel. Desintec InsektEx pour-on is an innovative product that can keep flies and midges away from animals.” Pour-on products with pyrethroids also show repellent properties (protective effects) against insects as well as a contact insecticide effect. Due to its special formula, the solution achieves a very long-lasting effect of at least seven weeks.
Desintec InsektEx pour-on is available from AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG and Raiffeisen affiliated partners from March 2016 onwards in a 1-litre dosage bottle or a 2.5 litre dosage bottle with dosing pistol.
