Abstract Laboratory and field trials were performed to evaluate the attractiveness and efficacy of commercial baits cyantraniliprole; methomyl + Z-9-tricosene; dinotefuran + Z-9-tricosene; imidacloprid granular + Z-9-tricosene; and imidacloprid liquid + Z-9-tricosene. In choice tests; flies were most attracted to cyantraniliprole bait > dinotefuran + Z-9 > methomyl + Z-9 bait > imidacloprid granular + Z-9 bait > imidacloprid liquid + Z-9 bait. Significant degradation in bait efficacy was observed after two weeks of aging excluding imidacloprid granular; which began to degrade in field conditions after one week. Cyantraniliprole; the new fly bait active ingredient in Zyrox®; had the longest time to knockdown in the laboratory tests; but on susceptible flies; achieved 95%–100% knockdown within an hour of exposure. Zyrox® was resistant to weathering for a week; and was more attractive to flies in the field when compared to methomyl + Z-9 bait. View Full-Text
