Darkling beetle insecticide
Bayer Animal Health Division introduces Credo SC Insecticide
specifically formulated to destroy darkling beetles (Alphitobius di-aperinus). The active ingredient is imidacloprid which is effective
against both larva and adult beetles. The product is presented in
plastic containers with a concentration of 42.8% active ingredient
adequate to treat 20,000 square feet of poultry housing in a single
application. The company recommends rotation of Credo SC with
Tempo in broiler housing and a similar approach would be suitable
for floor-reared replacement pullets and laying flocks.
