June 01, 2022

LEXINGTON, Ky., June 1, 2022 — Neogen® Corporation (NASDAQ: NEOG) announced today that it has added a new insect control solution for poultry producers to its Prozap® product line.

Prozap Gamma-Defense is a micro-encapsulated, slow-release insecticide for use in and around poultry and other livestock housing, buildings, and structures for the control of litter beetles, flies, fleas, ticks, and other listed pests. The highly concentrated insect control solution is formulated with gamma-cyhalothrin, the newest and most potent pyrethroid available.

“Prozap Gamma-Defense is a powerful insect control solution for poultry producers,” said Coyee Hunt, an Animal Safety Product Manager at Neogen. “This formula is proven effective against adult and immature darkling, hide, and carrion beetles, common pests that can have a significant impact on poultry production. Prozap Gamma-Defense provides strong protection against pests while offering a versatile label for application and control of problem insects on the farm.”

When treating for litter beetles, one quart treats up to 48,000 square-feet and can be applied in 21-day cycles. The versatile formula can be applied within poultry housing structures at clean out or in between flocks, and can be utilized as a barrier treatment outside the structure. Prozap Gamma-Defense can be used on the entire footing, cracks and crevices, or in banded applications*.

Neogen offers a complete insecticide product portfolio for farm, home, and ranch settings, including products for horses and livestock within barns, stables, kennels, and more.
