Starbar Products has expanded its insect control lineup with the launch of Exhalt WDG Insect Growth Regulator. Featuring two methods of application, Exhalt WDG Insect Growth Regulator protects livestock by causing a gradual reduction in insect populations and interrupting the life cycles of nuisance pests.
"We're excited to expand our industry-leading lineup of agricultural insect control solutions with the launch of Exhalt WDG Insect Growth Regulator," says Andrea Trinh, brand manager for the Farm and Ranch division of Central Life Sciences. "This versatile insect growth regulator can be scattered or sprayed in livestock facilities to protect animals from costly insect infestations."
Exhalt WDG Insect Growth Regulator is a granular product that may be applied dry or dispersed into water and applied as a liquid spray and is approved for use in and around poultry, cattle*, equine* and swine operations*, as well as other commercial facilities*. The active ingredient, novaluron, is an IGR that provides control by interrupting the life cycles of labeled insects and causing a gradual reduction in the population of house flies, stable flies**, dump flies and soldier flies, as well as darkling beetles, crickets and German cockroach nymphs (indoor applications only). (*Not for use in California. **Granular application only.)
Exhalt WDG Insect Growth Regulator may also be combined or tank-mixed and applied as a coarse spray with an EPA-registered insecticide. The combination of an adulticide and Exhalt WDG Insect Growth Regulator will provide immediate control of labeled adult insects while inhibiting the immature stages from developing into adults.
The elimination of adult insects with Exhalt WDG Insect Growth Regulator occurs gradually and becomes apparent one to two weeks after application.
"We promote targeted insect control at all levels based on fly activity. Exhalt WDG Insect Growth Regulator is a sugar-based bait and should be applied at low levels of operations where flies feed," says Trinh.
