ClarifFly® Add-Pack can be added directly to milk or milk replacer right on the farm. ClariFly® is a feed-through larvicide that prevents adult house flies, stable flies, face flies, and horn flies from developing in and emerging from the manure of treated cattle. ClariFly® passes through the digestive system and into the manure where it disrupts the normal molting process of the fly larvae.
As it develops, a normal fly larva forms its exoskeleton out of a substance called chitin. ClariFly® is a chitin synthesis inhibitor which prevents the larva from ever developing an exoskeleton and thus prevents the larva from developing into an adult. ClariFly® is non-toxic and works through a very specific mode of action which does not affect humans or other farm animals.
