Milk Products Announces New Fly-Control Option for Calves

September 11, 2012 04:24 AM

Chilton, WI — Milk Products announces the availability of the new elim-A-fly Add-Pack Elim A Fly group 01 for webwith ClariFly as an addition to the Sav-A-Caf product line. Formulated specifically for preweaned calves, elim-A-fly is a daily, oral, feed-through fly-control solution that can be mixed with whole milk or a milk replacer.
"Proper control of flies and their effects can be a challenge for many farmers," commented Sara Sievert, commercial marketing manager at Milk Products. "Flies can be costly to an operation. They reduce feed intake, carry bacteria and spread diseases. All of these factors can ultimately affect animal growth and future production. elim-A-fly provides producers a good solution for fly control in a calf’s environment."
elim-A-fly should be used as part of a farm’s integrated fly control program. Its main active ingredient, diflubenzuron, is an EPA-approved insect growth regulator that stops the development of fly larvae in calves’ manure. It prevents the formation of fly larvae’s exoskeletons, ultimately resulting in their death. elim-A-fly is effective in controlling horn, face, house and stable flies.
elim-A-fly is available in two convenient sizes, an 8-lb. plastic pail and a 22.05-lb. paper bag. It can be purchased online and through retailers throughout the U.S. For more information about where to purchase elim-A-fly, please visit
