Muscalure is a unique attractant for flies based on fly pheromones. Housefly females produce this sex pheromone to attract males.
By targeting sex pheromones and the associated group behaviour (aggregation pheromone), Muscalure is particularly effective in fly control applications. The attraction effect allows the flies to absorb more agent, so that the pheromone increases the effectiveness of the agent.
Muscalure is added in liquid form as an attractant to fly control products such as:
- Fly glue strips
- Wall sprays
- Granular baits
- Fly bait stations
- Electric fly killers
These are often insecticides (powders or granules) containing slow-release active ingredients.
Muscalure is based on is Z-9 tricosene.
