Fiberglass panels treated with a pyrethroid compound (permethrin, (3-phenoxyphenyl) methyl cis trans- (±)-3-(2,2-dichloroethenyl)-2,2-dimethylcyclopropanecarboxylate)) at a rate of 2.5 g/m2 successfully reduced indigenous populations of Stomoxys calcitrans (L.) by 84–90% in 7–8 days in field trials. It was calculated that the units removed more than 30% of the adult population per day from the environment when they were used at a rate of 1 unit/5 domestic animals.
