LEXINGTON, Ky., April 11, 2022 — Neogen Corporation (NASDAQ: NEOG) announced today that it has added a new product to the trusted Prozap® insect control line.

Prozap Protectus Pour-On Insecticide – IGR is a ready-to-use triple-active formula for use on beef cattle and calves that kills chewing and sucking lice, horn flies, stable flies, horse and deer flies. The product is formulated with a unique combination of active ingredients, including an insect growth regulator (IGR), adulticide, and a synergist, which provides cattle with relief from infestations and kills louse eggs before they hatch, providing season-long control of lice in one application.

The formula, which contains 3% diflubenzuron, 2.5% piperonyl butoxide, and 0.5% lambda-cyhalothrin, is applied along the back of the animal being treated utilizing a graduated applicator gun.*

“We are incredibly excited to offer this new, premium insect control product to producers,” said Elizabeth Wonsowski, Neogen’s Ruminant Product Marketing Manager. “The formulation of the new Prozap Protectus Pour-On product provides beef cattle producers with a unique option compared to existing products currently on the market and will help minimize cattle handling, time, and labor costs associated with treatment.”

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.
