July 14, 2013 – Fly control for hobby farmers with multiple types of animals can be even more daunting, if possible, than it is for owners of just one species. Cattle, horses, dogs–how do you decide which product is right for each one? Or maybe you take the “one size fits all” approach, but with that nagging doubt in the back of your mind whether what you’re using is truly appropriate for every animal. Flys-X Ready To Use Insecticide from W. F. Young, Inc., makers of Absorbine animal care products, is your answer for multi-species insect control.
Flys-X consists of a water-based (aqueous) formula that contains pyrethrins, a botanical insectide. It can be used on lactating and non-lactating beef and dairy cattle, and kills horn flies, house flies, face flies, mosquitoes, gnats and blood-sucking lice on cattle, horses and dogs, as well as killing fleas and brown ticks on dogs. Flys-X comes ready to use (no mixing or diluting required) in a 32 oz. refillable spray bottle and gallon size.
“There are so many hobby farmers who are looking for effective answers to their livestock’s insect control needs,” said Jaime McKinley, Vice President of Marketing and New Business Development, W. F. Young. “For example, high fly populations can be detrimental to both weight gain and milk production.”
Flys-X also kills fleas and brown dog ticks when used as a premise spray.
“Flys-X is a great solution to help livestock, horse and dog owners keep pest populations under control,” McKinley said. “Absorbine is pleased to provide insect control options that are easy and affordable.”
