Insect growth regulator for the control of fly larvae by topical treatment of breeding sites.
Description and Composition
NEPOREX is available as
- NEPOREX 2 SG, a soluble granulate containing 20 g of cyromazine per kg
- NEPOREX 50 SP, a soluble powder containing 500g of cyromazine per kg
Cyromazine, the active ingredient of NEPOREX, is an insect growth regulator belonging to the group of triazine derivatives. Cyromazine interferes with the chitin metabolism of the insect. Treated larvae will not molt to the next stage and thus the cycle of the fly will be interrupted. The molecule also shows a high specificity for fly larvae.
First instar larvae are more susceptible to cyromazine than second and third instars. The effect on the adult fly population becomes visible approx. 2 weeks after first application of NEPOREX.
NEPOREX is used for the control of fly larvae in animal houses and public hygiene.
Dosage and Administration
Apply 0.5 g of a.i. / m2 directly on manure or on other fly breeding sites. This corresponds to :
- 25 g of NEPOREX 2 SG per m2
- 1 g of NEPOREX 50 SP per m2
NEPOREX 2 SG can be dry scattered, poured or sprayed.
NEPOREX 50 SP has to be diluted before spraying or watering.
Two to three treatments at fortnightly intervals are usually sufficient to get fly population under control. The simultaneous use of an adulticide is recommended, in order to control the influx of adult flies.
Special Precautions and Warnings
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
