This week the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) confirmed the presence of highly pathogenic H7 avian influenza in a commercial chicken breeder flock in Lincoln County, Tennessee.
Using Sterilex® Ultra Disinfectant Cleaner Solution 1 and Sterilex® Ultra Activator or Ultra Soft Metal Activator, effectively controls Avian Influenza (AI), multiple strains of Salmonella as well as numerous additional poultry and swine pathogens. In waterlines, it can be used for line disinfection and the removal of organic contaminants. The two-part solution is mixed, diluted in water, pumped into the nipple drinker lines to soak, and then flushed with potable water between flocks. This process creates a cleaner, safer water source and limits the risk of AI spreading between flocks.
Sterilex Ultra Disinfectant Cleaner Solution 1 and Sterilex Ultra Activator Solution, or Ultra Soft Metal Activator, can also be used inside barns to disinfect between flocks. Following the removal of gross soils from the barn, the two-part solution is mixed, diluted in water, and either foamed or sprayed on surfaces.
For additional biosecurity solutions, Sterilex offers Sterilex® Ultra Step. This non-slip blue powder is an EPA-registered floor surface, floor mat, foot pan and boot sanitizer approved to kill organisms such as Listeria, Escherichia coli (E.coli), Salmonella, Staphylococcus (Staph), and Enterobacter. Used in entryways, Sterilex Ultra Step can also control organism transfer from foot traffic and equipment movement. Apply directly to floors in barns and hatcheries to prevent the spread of harmful pathogens.
