Solitude IGR Feed Through Fly Preventive for Horses
SOLITUDE® IGR (cyromazine) is a non-organophosphate that has been safely used in horses since 2001 and undergone extensive research to prove its effectiveness and safety. It provides feed-through fly prevention and control of house and stable flies in and around horses, horse barns, stables, paddocks, and race tracks. When mixed into a horse's ration daily according to the directions, it works to prevent house and stable fly development. Significant results may be observed within two weeks, but the full benefit should be realized within four to six weeks of administration as the adult populations die off.
Cyromazine, the active ingredient in SOLITUDE® IGR, has a well-documented safety and efficacy profile, It is an insect growth regulator that works on the fly's chitin exoskeleton and is very species-specific to house and stable flies. As the horse is fed cyromazine, it passes through the horse and is excreted in the manure. House flies and stable flies lay their eggs in the manure and the eggs subsequently hatch into the larval or maggot stage. As the maturing maggots feed on the treated manure, they become unable to successfully develop into adult flies because cyromazine inhibits the proper formation of chitin. The immature stage of the fly dies. Cyromazine has no effect on the chitin of the adult fly.
- Intended for use only in equidae including horses, mules, and donkeys.
- Just one scoop per day per horse, no matter the weight or size of horse.
- Once excreted, breaks down to a melamine monomer, a slow release nitrogen fertilizer.
- Repeated studies show up to 100% efficacy in inhibiting larvae development.
- Studies have proven 99.5% effectiveness against stable flies and 100% effectiveness against house flies, with no effect on horses, other mammals or beneficial insects.
Directions For Use
- Failure to follow directions and precautions on the label may result in poor fly control.
- Feed the recommended dosage to each horse separately to make certain full ration is received.
- Start feeding SOLITUDE® IGR early in the spring before flies begin to appear, and continue feeding throughout the summer and into the fall until cold weather inhibits fly development.
- In some cases, supplemental fly control measures may be needed in and around paddocks and stables to control adult house flies and stable flies, which can breed not only in manure, but in other decaying vegetable matter or silage on premises.
- SOLITUDE® IGR will provide a high degree of fly control and will give the best results when integrated with a well-managed fly control program that includes appropriate sanitary and management practices to reduce the number and size of fly breeding sites.
