Solutions for Darkling Beetles
BASF delivers proven results in the fight against darkling beetles, which pose a unique threat to both broiler and layer operations. Not only do darkling beetles spread diseases including salmonella, e coli, Newcastle and Marek’s disease, they can also burrow in the walls of your housing facilities and cause untold amounts of costly damage. In addition, they cause considerable harm to bird health through bites and discomfort, as well as through being a poor source of food for your flock.
To overcome these existing and emerging challenges, poultry farm operators should rotate classes of insecticides and active ingredients with different modes of action as part of an integrated pest management program.
