Flies spread disease-causing organisms and stress animals, which inhibits weight gain and reduces production.

QuickBayt Fly Bait kills houseflies in less than 60 seconds, making it the new standard for comparison. It is a ready-to-use dry scatter bait, with two fly attractants and the active ingredient imidacloprid. Imidacloprid is an exciting development from Bayer, in a new class of insecticides, with fast knockdown and no resistance problems. QuickBayt kills houseflies resistant to organophosphates and carbamates. In studies, it killed flies twice as fast as methomyl products. "With QuickBayt, producers can use a fly control product that attracts and gets rid of flies in less time," according to Richard Hack, product manager, Farm Hygiene, at Bayer. "QuickBayt is the first fly control product to have imidacloprid."

In a recent study, 100% of the flies feeding on QuickBayt were knocked down after three minutes, compared to 40% of the flies that were feeding on methomyl-based products. Ingredients in QuickBayt are readily available to flies, because the red, sugar-based granule is porous and allows them to be released over time. QuickBayt is for use only around the outside of agricultural production facilities, such as feedlots, livestock housing structures and horse stables. In horse stables, use bait only in fly bait stations. Place bait in areas inaccessible to animals. QuickBayt also can be used in commercial fly bait stations or mixed with water for a paint-on application.

The addition of QuickBayt compliments the Bayer family of premise pesticides including Tempo WP Insecticide (cyfluthrin), Tempo 1% Dust Insecticide (cyfluthrin), Tempo SC Ultra Premise Spray (beta-cyfluthrin) and Clout Rodenticide (bromethalin).

Bayer also offers a full line of on-animal insecticides including new Co-Ral Plus (coumaphos-diazinon) and CyLence Ultra Insecticide Ear Tags (beta-cufluthrin), CyLence Pour-On Insecticide (cyfluthrin), Co-Ral Fly and Tick Spray (coumaphos) and Co-Ral ELI (coumaphos).

The new Co-Ral Plus Ear Tag features an unprecedented combination of 20% dust (coumaphos) and 20% liquid (diazinon) active ingredients. This 40% organophosphate liquid-dust ear tag controls flies all season long. Compared to a leading 40% diazinon ear tag, new Co-Ral Plus released 12% more active ingredients during the six-month testing period. While the diazinon tags stopped releasing by day 135, the Co-Ral Plus tags were still actively releasing three weeks later when the testing ended.

New CyLence Ultra Ear Tag features a unique combination of 8% beta-cyfluthrin (pyrethroid) and 20% piperonyl butoxide (PBO), a synergist that increases the power of the insecticide. This unique ear tag provides livestock producers with a superior level of season-long fly control. During field tests, the CyLence Ultra ear tag controlled twice as many face flies compared to a leading pyrethroid tag. And compared to a top diazinon tag, CyLence Ultra controlled five times more face flies during the 13-week test period. CyLence Ultra ear tags delivered 100% control of face flies on days one and seven, post treatment. Through the remaining 13 weeks of testing, face fly control for CyLence Ultra (at 82% average) was twice as effective as a leading 10% cyfluthrin (pyrethroid) ear tag, which averaged 44% control.

Both new ear tags from Bayer utilize the Allflex Global Tagging System.

CyLence Pour-On works double-duty to control flies and lice on beef and dairy (including lactating) cattle. CyLence delivers fast-acting, long-lasting, economical control of horn flies and face flies. It also controls biting and sucking lice, including Heamatropinus eurysternus, Linognathus vituli, Solenopotes capillatus and Damalinia (bovicola) bovis lice. The active ingredient cyfluthrin is a fourth generation pyrethroid formulation that is four to six times more active than older pyrethroid products. In a ready-to-use formulation and a low-volume dose, CyLence is easy and convenient to apply.

Make Bayer Animal Health insecticides the core for an Integrated Pest Management program for maximum results in controlling profit-robbing flies and lice.
