What to Expect When Using Horse Insect Growth Regulator Supplements
What are insect growth regulator supplements?
Insect growth regulator supplements are daily formulas that provide targeted ingredients to inhibit the development of house and stable flies. They use ingredients like cyromazine, which passes safely through the horse’s system to affect the fly larvae in manure.
Why insect growth regulator supplements are a smart choice:
Keeping flies from maturing before they arrive is a smart way to help ensure they won’t drive the horses on your farm crazy. Feed-through larvacides work by preventing house and stable fly larvae from developing into adults, which means they’ll never become those bothersome pests that fly and buzz. In other words, this is one smart way to stop the bugs before they start!
What to expect with insect growth regulator supplements
It’s best to start these types of supplements a few weeks before flies appear in your area. Since it takes 4-6 weeks for the existing adult fly population to die off, you should start to notice fewer flies buzzing around after you’ve been giving the supplement for a few weeks. Because flies breed and develop in manure, it’s important to have all the horses on the property receiving an insect growth regulator supplement for it to most effectively manage the fly populations on your property.
How to support success
Putting an insect growth regulator supplement in your horse’s SmartPaks is a smart way to help keep the flies at bay all season long. As you know, there’s not one single strategy for completely managing insects, but rather a comprehensive approach will give you the best results. Regular fly spray application, fly predators, and fly sheets are also great tools at your disposal for having a happy horse during bug season.
