Terregena Inc. Announces EPA Approval of balEnceTM Biopesticide for Equine Market

RALEIGH, NC, March 6, 2009: Terregena Inc. announced that balEnceTM Biopesticide Liquid Spray and balEnceTM Biopesticide Bait have been approved for sale to the equine market by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). balEnceTM Biopesticide Spray and Bait are organic, all natural, safe and effective biopesticides that specifically target flies – they will not harm humans, horses, pets or the environment.

balEnceTM Biopesticide Spray and Bait have been EPA approved and available for sale to the poultry market for years. Many of the largest poultry operations in both the United States and Canada are currently using balEnceTM products to control flies. Both balEnceTM Biopesticide Spray and balEnceTM Biopesticide Bait are approved for organic production by the US Department of Agriculture National Organic Program.

With the approval by the EPA of balEnceTM for livestock, Terregena began marketing balEnceTM to the equine market by introducing the products in early February 2009 at the American Equestrian Trade Association International Trade Fair in Baltimore, Maryland. The response by horse owners to these all natural, organic fly control balEnceTM products was extremely positive. Jim Skinner, President and CEO of Terregena, said, “With the approval of balEnceTM Biopesticide Spray and Bait by the EPA for the equine market, we are now able to offer horse owners an all natural, organic, safe and economical solution to their fly problems.”

The active ingredient in both balEnce™ spray and balEnce™ bait is a naturally occurring fungus (Beauveria bassiana). This fungus is a host specific pathogen that targets and kills flies but does not affect humans, horses, pets or the environment. balEnce™, the all natural insecticide, will replace chemical treatments for the control of flies. Controlling flies is an ongoing challenge and a source of major concern as they spread disease and are a nuisance to humans and animals.

Terregena Inc. is a privately held, international marketing and distribution company of products for the agricultural, animal health and veterinary markets throughout North, Central and South America. Terregena focuses on research based products emanating from new technologies that are natural — animal, human and environmentally friendly.
