The makers of Starbar products announced the launch of DuraStrike Fly Scatter Bait, a ready-to-use granular bait for use in and around residential, commercial and agricultural structures. With the active ingredient, Indoxacarb, DuraStrike Fly Scatter Bait provides control of house and fruit flies and kills blow flies indoors.
“We strongly recommend our product users regularly rotate our fly baits to help prevent resistance and ensure optimal effectiveness,” said Brandon Schweiss, brand manager for the farm and ranch division of Central Life Sciences. “DuraStrike now gives us four excellent rotational bait options, so our customers don’t need to look anywhere else for their fly control needs.”
DuraStrike Fly Scatter Bait can be used in conjunction with QuikStrike Fly Bait, Golden Malrin Fly Bait, and Cyanarox Insecticidal Bait as an alternative or additional rotational product. These baits feature different active ingredients, different attractants and different modes of action, that can help prevent resistance when used in rotation.
DuraStrike Fly Scatter Bait can be applied as a scatter bait or in a refillable bait station in areas not accessible to children, pets or livestock. The amount of bait applied can be adjusted to the level of fly population present, even as low as 1.6 oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. for the maintenance of fly populations. The product is approved for use in and around dairies, broiler houses, stables, swine facilities, food processing plants and more labeled sites. For the most effective control of flies, use DuraStrike Fly Scatter Bait as part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program that also features traps, sprays and best cultural practices.
