Colder weather means many things in the agriculture industry, but most recognizable is no more pesty flies! Proximity Veterinary Health (PVH) has entered into an agreement for the distribution and sale of PermaNet Screen, the world’s only insecticidal screen that kills biting flies and midges by contact. PermaNet Screen is created by Vestergaard, a global health company innovating game-changing solutions that contribute to a healthier, more sustainable planet.
PermaNet will protect horses and enable cattle to be more productive and healthier by reducing the number of flies pestering them while it reduces the spread of disease. “When cows are stressed or sick, milk production can be reduced by up to 30%. The use of a PermaNet Screen can allow cows to remain healthy, thus allowing for normal milk production,” according to PVH CEO, Barry Beverly. “We are proud to be able to play a part in keeping farms healthy and highly productive.”
Use of the PermaNet Screen can provide an alternative to fly sprays, masks or diet changes and will eliminate the need for daily sprayings. While being used by livestock producers in a previous pilot research and development program, it was reported that there were 77% fewer
flies and other insects. Calm and healthy livestock benefit farmers, families and communities.
PermaNet Screen was first developed to help reduce disease-carrying insects for humans and then progressed towards more durable materials for use with the agricultural market. PermaNet Screen is EPA approved and NoMoreFly is proud to supply this innovative product to our proud farmers, ranchers, and horse owners in the USA.
