BARN GUARD - INSECTICIDE BARRIER GRANULES

Currently being developed is a granulated organic based pest repellent designed to retain and slow release a controlled protective barrier in poultry sheds and animal housing facilities.

 

Formulated for the control and organic management of Darkling Beetle adults and larval stages, that are present in poultry sheds, spoil poultry food supplies and transmit harmful diseases. This product will also be suitable and effective for use in kennels, stables and livestock housing, to repel insects and pests, once development is completed.
