Elanco Animal Health gains federal approval to use Elector® Bait for fly control in beef, dairy, poultry and other livestock. The yellow, granular formulation is highly attractive to flies, and provides ongoing, effective fly control through a unique, delayed mode of action. It kills flies after they've eaten and left the bait area, which keeps the product clean. Elector has no known insecticide resistance.
