Tools, machinery parts, seed catalogues, foot trimmers… The list is endless so we’ve put together this blog to show you the best Lodi products you should keep on-farm. You never know when you might need them!

Phobi Caps is an innovative formulation that uses Prallethrin to provide a quick knockdown. It also uses a micro-encapsulation of Cypermethrin to ensure long-term stability of the action against light, temperature and humidity. It works in less than 15 minutes and because of its’ formula, will continuously protect treated surfaces for up to 12 weeks. Odourless and non-staining, Phobi Caps can be used on porous and non-porous surfaces. It can be used in agricultural housing against a variety of flying and crawling insects like, flies, stable flies, house flies, lesser houseflies, mosquitoes, and stored product moths.
Sheila RTU Granular Fly Bait
Sheila RTU Granular Fly Bait is a ready-to-use insecticide, conveniently packaged into granules. It can be used anywhere flies gather, such as in animal pens, sheds, milking parlours, and around slurry tanks. The bright yellow granules contain unique sex pheromones and attractants that lure flies to them. The active ingredient, Azamethiphos, is the fastest chemical on the market and is the only bait that can kill by contact and ingestion. You can see the instant results by the dead flies next to the bait.
Perbio Choc RTU is the strongest oil based ready to use insecticide available to the UK farmer. It contains 0.64% Permethrin and 0.63% Tetramethrin for a quick knockdown and long term residual. Since its launch over 8 years ago, it has been one of the most popular ready to use insecticides available. The residual can last for up to 3 months ensuring the treated area remains pest-free for a long length of time. It is for use against flying and crawling insects, including red mite, litter beetle, flies, stored product pests, and much more. It can be sprayed or ULV fogged in and around farm buildings, dairies, animal housing plus amenity areas, sewage works, refuse disposal and waste storage areas.

Once applied, it will protect against grain weevils, flour beetles, grain borers, saw-toothed grain beetles and bean weevils and flying insects such as rice moths, Indian meal moths and grain moths for up to 12 months. The bottle connects to the application machinery to make it easier to use – no measuring or pouring! It also reduces the risk of application errors, has no concentrate to expose operators to & allows load rates to be maintained.
Phobi Smoke Pro 90C+
Phobi Smoke Pro 90C+ is a brand new product that’s only just launched! It is the new go-to for pre-harvest grain store treatments. It is 10% larger and contains more of its’ active ingredient, cypermethrin, for better coverage and improved efficacy. It’s easy to use - simply light the wick of the generator and the smoke will reach into all the nooks and crannies where the insects hide. A must for arable farmers and agronomists!
Maggots Granular Larvicide contains a highly effective and specific growth regulator called Cyromazine. It is easy to use and is a water-soluble granular larvicide that can be directly sprinkled on slurry or best sprayed after dilution in water. It prevents larvae from developing in flies which ultimately breaks the flies’ life cycle. Results can be seen in as little as 2 weeks after first application and it offers a long residual effect. Maggots larvicide is safe in and around poultry houses, dairy and calf units, pig fattening and pig breeding units, sheep and goat units and horse stables.
Lodi’s Gems should be in every farmers’ toolbox. The Jade, Ruby, and Sapphire Gems offer many different options for every situation. Each of the baits is highly attractive and contains a different active ingredient. From the multi-feed Ruby gems, which is more suitable for use around pets and families, to the single feed Sapphire which is more suited for tougher infestations.
