After application, adult flies and fly larvae die in 24 to 72 hours.

balEnce BioPesticide is a host-specific pathogen that kills adult flies and fly larvae but is safe for humans, animals, beneficial insects, and the environment.  balEnce is available in a concentrated liquid spray for adult flies and fly larvae.

The active ingredient in balEnce, Beauveria bassiana, is a fungal spore that infects the adult fly and fly larvae on contact. The fungus consumes and kills the insect. Flies do not develop resistance to balEnce as with most chemical pesticides — so rotation of pesticides is not necessary or desirable.

Maintain dry manure to minimize the fly breeding habitat for effective and economical fly control. It is important to note that chemical pesticides kill beneficial insects while balEnce BioPesticide is not harmful.

Darkling Beetle

Darkling beetles transmit many poultry diseases as well as harbor several parasites.

Broiler, turkey, brooder, and grow-out houses are ideal environments for the darkling beetles to breed, thrive and multiply. These habitats provide optimal temperatures and food for this pest and the beetles’ livability is near 100 percent from egg to adult. This results in very large numbers of insects in the house.

Examples of diseases caused by darkling beetles include leucosis (Marek’s), Infectious Bursal Disease (Gumboro), coronavirus, Newcastle Disease Virus, avian influenza, Salmonella sp, E. coli, Aspergillus sp, Eimeria spp., roundworms, and tapeworms. Darkling beetles eat beneficial insects, such as the hister beetle.

The active ingredient in balEnce, Beauveria bassiana, is a fungal spore that infects the adult fly and fly larvae on contact. The fungus consumes and kills the insect. Flies do not develop resistance to balEnce as with most chemical pesticides — so rotation of pesticides is not necessary or desirable.

Use Beneficial Insects to Combat Pests

Parasitic Wasps or fly predators are an excellent agricultural insect control product.

Parasitic Wasps

Beneficial insects are very important in helping to control fly populations. Because balEnce is natural, organic, it won’t harm beneficial insects.

Terregena provides parasitic wasps in its arsenal of agricultural insect control products. Hister beetles and earwigs are also beneficial insects that will naturally be attracted to your barn as long as no chemical pesticides are used as PESTICIDES WILL KILL YOUR BENEFICIAL INSECTS!

balEnce products are approved for sale in both the US and CANADA — in the US by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and for organic production by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), and in Canada by the Health Canada Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA)

balEnce is a solution of the spores (conidia) of Beauveria bassiana (Bb) — a naturally occurring, environmentally friendly fungus that is present in soils throughout the world. Beauveria bassiana occurs in numerous strains which target and are fatal to certain insects — these specific insects are called the “host”.

The spore is picked up by the target, host insect, reproduces inside it, and kills the insect. Generally, and depending on the target insect and the ambient temperature, the Bb-infected insect ceases reproduction and succumbs in three to five days.

The Beauveria bassiana spores present in the environment are only sufficient to infect and kill a very small percentage of its target insect. By adding balEnce to the environment where the target insect is an issue, one is increasing the amount of this natural insect predator to a level that is sufficient to control them.

Because balEnce is an insect-specific pathogen, it has no negative impact on humans, animals or other insects.
