The common housefly (Musca domestica) and related fly species are an everyday problem in animal production as well as in densely populated human living areas. In addition to transmitting pathogens to people, flies contaminate food in commercial, industrial and institutional facilities. Flies also carry diseases to animals and often cause stress among livestock, which leads to reduced milk and meat production. Moreover, flies are unpleasant and associated with low standards of hygiene.

The bait concept
The active ingredient imidacloprid is utilized through a new combination of attracting properties and an optimized bait surface. The bait's attractiveness comes from a mixture of two attractants, and is enhanced even further by the signal color red.
