Effective and Convenient Fly Control with NGS Supplements
Low moisture blocks from New Generation Supplements fortified with Altosid®, offer the most effective and convenient way to control horn flies in beef and dairy cattle. Altosid helps reduce horn fly populations by breaking the life cycle of the fly, preventing the development of biting adult flies. By providing IGR fortified New Generation Supplements products producers can effectively stop the cycle of horn flies and help improve the performance of their cattle.
As an insect growth regulator, Altosid passes through cattle and into the manure. This is where the breaking of the fly cycle begins. Female flies lay eggs in fresh manure. Within a week or so the eggs develop into larvae, then pupae and then adult flies. The active ingredient in Altosid, methoprene, ultimately prevents fly eggs from completing this cycle, keeping adult flies from emerging.
