Hokoex® is a larvicide for control of nuisance flies in animal husbandry, outdoor manure heaps, slurry reservoirs and waste disposal sites.
The granular formulation contains 2 % cyromazine. Cyromazine is highly selective to diptera larvae but does not impair populations of parasitoids / paraparasitoids of nuisance flies in an inacceptable manner. It interferes with fly larval development and thus prevents eclosion of viable adults. Hokoex can be applied by direct dispersal of dry granules, respectively spraying or pouring after dissolution in water.
Repeat applications of Hokoex® usally are not necessary until six weeks after treatment and are generally most efficient when made as soon as maggots re-appear. Depending on the housing system specific application patterns further increase efficacy.
Hokoex® is available in units of 1, 5, 10 and 25 kg.
