Case study using FLYNEXX® Granules and the 1-2-3 Pit MULTI-USE Applicator

Tom Gillespie, DVM, Dip ABVP (Swine Health Management), and case manager Kevin Thorne

Purpose
  1. Evaluate FLYNEXX® Larvicidal Granules for control of flies using 1-2-3 PITApplicator in a swine finishing facility with eight rooms housing 8,560 swine (1,070 per room) in the Eastern Corn Belt
  2. Collect adult flies and oral fluids from ropes to evaluate the presence of bacteria and viruses
Results
  • Fully Treated: The fully treated room showed a 54.2% decrease in adult fly counts
  • Untreated:  The untreated control rooms had increased fly counts ranging from 40% to 2,036%
  • A surprisingly high number of bacteria were identified by the bacteriologist
Conclusions
  • Technical BulletinHouse flies are indeed carriers of multiple species of bacteria which can have negative consequences for producers
  • House fly control is necessary to reduce the transmission of bacteria within a room to animals and humans
  • Flynexx Granules provide an effective means of significantly reducing house fly burdens in swine operations
