Complete the form below and a real person will be in touch.
Pertinent proposes an elegant solution to control horn flies, that should constitute the
cornerstone of any Integrated Pest Management program. Pertinent IGR 0.4% Feed-Thru is a feed-through concentrate containing S-Methoprene, an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR), at 0.4% concentration.
The product is incorporated into the cattle mineral supplement and is released in the manure where it breaks the life cycle of insects and prevents adults to develop.
How it works
The compound S-Methoprene breaks the life cycle of insects by preventing eggs, larvae,
and pupae from maturing to the biting adult stage in the life cycle. When the cattle eat feed or lick a tub or block, treated with (S) -Methoprene, the IGR passes through the animal and into the manure, where Horn Flies lay their eggs. Pupae that are exposed to (S) -Methoprene in the
manure cannot develop into biting Adult Flies. It is a Manufacturing Use Product (MP) specially designed for feed mills for formulation into end-use products (Loose Mineral, Blocks, Tubs, Pre-Mix Concentrate).
