Flies and beetles are known to transmit a number of poultry diseases as well as harbor several parasites. In addition, these insects constitute a nuisance to nearby residential areas and, in the case of beetles, consume large quantities of feed, driving up the cost of production.
The active ingredient in balEnce™ products is a naturally occurring fungus (Beauveria bassiana). This fungus is a host-specific pathogen that targets and kills flies or beetles but does not affect humans, animals, pets, beneficial insects or the environment.
In order to provide our customers with a complete solution to their fly control problems, Terregena includes parasitic wasps as an important part of its product offering.
The housefly and the darkling beetle have been linked to the spread of more than 30 bacterial and protozoal diseases.
