Poultry shed pests are foiled by deadly double

OUTSTANDING effectiveness in the control of all common poultry house insect pests is offered by Labtecs recently released product Tyrant 50-50.

Tyrant 50-50 combines a potent synthetic pyrethroid with a specific knock-down agent to provide a broad-spectrum insecticide effective against litter beetles, lice, mites and flying insects, says Labtec.

When used directly after birds have been moved from sheds, Tyrant should be applied as a low pressure spray at 12ml/litre of water and has excellent residual effects on both porous and non-porous surfaces, says David Tavernor of Labtec.

Tyrant has negligible colour and is available in a 500ml auto-dose pack, which will treat more than 800sq m and costs £60 (01270-214004, fax 01270-250703).
