Litter beetles can cause damage not only to the structure of farm facilities but, more importantly, to the animals themselves. To reduce litter beetle populations, inspect your structures and use a trusted residual treatment to keep these pests at bay.
The Archer® insect growth regulator formulation and unique mode of action effectively controls populations of beetles and other pests to prevent them from becoming egg-laying adults. When applied outdoors, Archer can be tank mixed with adulticides such as Demand® CS insecticide for long-lasting population control.
Once animals are removed from the area, Demand® CS insecticide can be applied to the walls and floors of a farm building at clean-out before animals are reintroduced. In addition, apply Demand CS to horizontal and overhead areas of a farm facility to provide residual control against darkling beetles and flies.
