Product Description

Prolong is an insecticide used for the control of cockroaches, spiders, ants, fleas, flies, silverfish, bedbugs, litter beetles and mosquitoes. Prolong contains Cyfluthrin, a synthetic pyrethroid that has been specifically designed to control litter beetles in poultry sheds and flies around farm buildings.

Litter beetles are a serious pest in the poultry industry, damaging the infrastructure in sheds which can last a lifetime. Litter beetles can also carry harmful disease, such as Marek's and Newcastle disease, and birds full from eating beetles are poor performers. An estimated 2 million beetles inhabit an average size poultry shed.

Prolong can be used in commercial and industrial premises, meatworks, (non-product areas), farm buildings, feedlots, animal houses, food processing plants, shops, offices, factories, storerooms, hospitals, schools, barracks, houses and ships for the control of common pests.
