SoFast systemic fly bait kills flies within minutes after contact. Introduced to the UK by specialist hygiene company Hysolv Ltd, it’s particularly suited to the poultry, pig and dairy industries, where flies within buildings can be a severe problem.
Based on imidacloprid, which works on the nervous systems of insects, it’s quick and easy to apply on interior surfaces by spray or paintbrush. Trials have shown 98% of all flies within a building are killed within 24 hours.
A special attractant lures flies to the bait, while a bitter substance helps prevent it being consumed by children, pets and other animals.
“The active ingredient has been well-proven and highly successful around the world to control a variety of agricultural and horticultural pests,” Hysolv UK’s Richard Brealey says. “Following the withdrawal of some products, it now makes a useful addition to the farmers’ armoury against flies in buildings.”
In wide-span houses, where there is an absence of suitable surfaces in the centre, the solution can be painted onto industrial fly rolls to hang from ceilings. It’s suitable for use in occupied livestock buildings. Imidacloprid trials conducted in closed German pig housing show an 86% reduction in fly numbers, even eight weeks after application.
SoFast is competitively priced at £54.40 for a 1kg tub of concentrate. When the granules are diluted this will treat 500 square metres.
