Control of stable flies (Diptera: Muscidae) with a unique nitrogen fertilizer, calcium cyanamide



Control of stable flies (Diptera: Muscidae) with a unique nitrogen fertilizer, calcium cyanamide



Journal of Economic Entomology 79(6): 1573-1576



Calcium cyanamide fertilizer at 0.75% resulted in 100% control of Stomoxys calcitrans larvae in field tests in Texas in a medium similar to that of feedlot waste or dairy barn waste. This is the first report of the effect of calcium cyanamide fertilizer on S. calcitrans breeding. The treatment was as effective in warm August weather as during cooler October weather.
