Good News for Hatcheries

There is no cure, only prevention, in combating Aspergillus.

The economic impact of Aspergillus in hatcheries is considerable, viz …

  • increase in embryo mortality, resulting in decreased hatchability
  • early chick mortality, sometimes as much as 20%
  • weakened viability of chick – immuno suppression
  • poor weight gain for broilers
  • increase in mortality during grow out
  • increase in cost to overcome infection
  • loss of customer confidence in chick quality

Our solution to controlling Aspergillus is through the use of Triazolol fogging. Triazolol is highly effective in controlling fungal growth in hatcheries producing a dramatic spore count drop. This new, unique fogging method is compatible with most hatchery detergents and disinfectants.

Laboratory Report

Please note that the gradation/score figures allocated to each surface is done according to the concentration and quality of bacteria per 16cm2. The overall percentage given for the swabbing survey is based on these gradation scores. Which is a direct indication of the general status.

Interpretation

  • There is a significant reduction of 30% in the bacterial count score.
  • A total of 99.9% Aspergillus reduction was also observed.
  • It can be concluded with confidence that fogging with Triazolol L and Triazolol F helps reduce the total colony forming units for both Bacterial and Fungal kingdoms.
