The creators 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 helps control house and fruit flies and kills blow flies indoors.
“We strongly recommend that our product users rotate our fly baits regularly 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 great spin bait options, so our customers don’t have to look elsewhere 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 supplemental rotational product. These baits contain different active ingredients, attractants and modes of action, which 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 square feet to maintain fly populations. The product is approved for use in and around dairies, poultry houses, barns, swine facilities, food processing plants and other labeled sites. For the most effective fly control, use DuraStrike™ Fly Scatter Bait as part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program that also includes traps, sprays and best cultural practices.
