Poultry Insect Control is a huge challenge. Flies and darkling 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.
Terregena provides balEnce, for effective, economical, and safe adult fly, fly larvae, darkling beetle, and hister beetle control to the poultry layer, broiler, and turkey industries.
The active ingredient in balEnce products is a naturally occurring fungus called Beauveria bassiana (Bb). 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.
