Control of house flies musca domestica in commercial poultry houses in connecticut usa



Control of house flies musca domestica in commercial poultry houses in connecticut usa



Poultry Science 65(5): 837-844



Relative numbers of adult house flies, as measured by mean numbers of fly specks/12.1 sq cm/day, were significantly correlated with frequency of manure removal. Values were .ltoreq. 3.6 and .gtoreq. 6.2 specks, respectively, when manure was removed 4 or more times and 0 to 2 times within 3 weeks. House flies were markedly reduced on two farms 21 to 25 days after Larvadex was added to feed at rates of 453 g per 907 kg (1 lb/ton) of feed. Mean numbers of fly specks declined from as high as 12.1 to less than .1 after 1 month of treatment. Flies remained at relatively low levels for up to 6 weeks after Larvadex had been removed from the feed. However, on one of these farms, Larvadex was ineffective 11/2 years after treatment was initiated, and it never was effective on a third farm. Reasons for unsatisfactory control are not understood. At farms where flies were not adequately controlled, quantities of Larvadex in premix and blended feeds were lower than or equal to amounts stated (premix, .3%) and recommended (blended feed, 1.5 ppm) on the label. Residues of Larvadex were rarely found in eggs and were not at all detectable in chicken meat of birds fed Larvadex for 4 weeks or more.
