HOW DOES IT WORK?

Contact with an insect pest or mite results in the static transfer of a few particles of the active. These particles absorb the protective lipid layer necessary for the insect’s survival. As a result, the insect will dehydrate.

Darkling beetles and other premise pests: Deadzone™ (Celite® 610) is a highly efficacious alternative to conventional insecticides used to control Darkling beetles in poultry production. Our studies indicated that application by either dust-applied or spray-applied treatment of litter with CELITE® 610 before placement in broiler poultry houses may be a feasible approach to control adult Darkling Beetles.

  • Excellent control of adult Darkling Beetles (mean value of 80.5% control) was observed after the first week post-application in all test houses regardless of application method or product presentation
  • Economic control continued in week 2 post-application (mean value of 91% control) and again after three weeks (92.2% control)
