Effect

ALZOGUR® is a biocide for treating liquid manure. ALZOGUR® reliably controls fly larvae in their breeding grounds, that is in liquid manure. This effectively eradicates these disease carriers and contributes to healthy pig house hygiene.

ALZOGUR® is particularly important in combatting swine dysentery, as it eliminates the pathogen Brachyspira hyodysenteriae from liquid manure and thus breaks the infectious cycle.

The active substance of ALZOGUR® gradually decomposes in liquid manure over a period of several months, but once the manure has been spread on the field, it is broken down completely into nitrogen compounds readily available to plants within a matter of days.

Dysentery? No, thanks!

Dysentery pathogens (Brachyspira hyodysenteriae) are excreted with faeces and can remain viable and infectious for up to 8 months in liquid manure, continuing to spread infections again and again. Slurry accumulating underneath slatted floors is an ideal breeding ground for flies, which transmit the pathogens back to the pigs. A comprehensive approach to pig house hygiene is therefore essential if the fight against dysentery is to have a lasting effect!

  • Optimise farming conditions, pig house hygiene and climate.
  • Fight rats, mice and flies, all of which spread dysentery.
  • Use ALZOGUR® to eliminate dysentery pathogens and fly larvae in liquid manure.

ALZOGUR® has a long track record as a reliable agent that effectively combats dysentery and fly larvae. ALZOGUR® yields reliable, sustaining effects and is easy to apply.

ALZOGUR® effectively combats flies (Musca domestica) before they even fly!

Flies (Musca domestica) are an unpleasant nuisance in pig houses, both for humans working there, and for animals. Pesky flies cause restlessness among animals, which in turn results in poorer performance or even abnormal animal behaviour, including savaging behaviours, which can occur due to excessive numbers of flies. But that is not all: flies carry and transmit a variety of infectious diseases (Hellwig, 2000).
