Last May, Dr. Estefania Mesa traveled to Perú to perform a trial to test the effectiveness of Alquerfeed Jacium, a new repellent based on natural extracts indicated to fight against Alphitobius diapernius. Taking advantatge of her visit in the Andean country, Dr. Mesa together with representatives of Adivet, distributor of Biovet in Perú, attended the 10th edition of the AMEVEA held in Trujillo.
The new product of Biovet S.A. is a natural preservative named Alquerfeed Jacium which combines cimenol ring with natural extracts. Dra. Mesa perform the trial with different concentrations of the product increasing the repellent effects against Alphitobius diapernius.
The larvae of this coprophagous coleoptera, also called bed beetle, are a serious problem for poultry farms because they can cause diseases like: E. coli, Gumboro disease, coccidiosis, Marek virus or avian influenza. Pests of these beetles can happen throughout the year, but are easier to reproduce in warm seasons.
Alquerfeed Jacium is presented as a valid alternative to synthetic pesticide because it has a high degree of effectiveness, is composed of natural extracts and is harmless for the vertebrates, including humans.
Dr. Mesa also attend, together with the general manager of Adivet, Dr. Hugo Patiño, the X International Seminar AMEVEA held in Trujillo from 15 to 17 May.
