Synergistic fly control efficacy of neem products with methoprene against the house fly in poultry farm
P Sankar and A Jagadeeswaran
The synergistic fly control efficiency of neem seed powder and neem seed oil with methoprene against house fly was evaluated in broiler shed. One hundred and ninety two, day old broiler chicks were randomly divided into eight groups of twelve each with two replicates and the study was conducted for a period of five weeks. Methoprene and neem seed powder were given through the feed @ of 10 gm and 1 Kg per tonne of feed, respectively and neem oil (5% v/v) was sprayed on broiler litter material twice a week until the completion of the study. Fly density was measured on 14th and 28th day in all the treatments. The rate of emergence of adults flies, both for treated and control groups on 14th and 28th day. All the feed incorporated treatments possessed significant reduction in fly density on 14th and 28th days. Inhibition of fly emergence was higher when neem products were combined with methoprene in both 14th and 28th day. The results of the present study indicate that these neem product with methoprene can find a place in eco-friendly strategy for housefly control programme in poultry industry.
