Python Maxima provides an excellent tool for rotation with other insecticides.

One tag should be applied per animal (1 ear only) for Buffalo Fly (up to 12 weeks) and Cattle Biting Lice control.  As ear damage may occur, Y-Tex Python Maxima is contraindicated for use on calves that are less than three (3) months.

Directions Of Use

Directions for Use:

Animal and Pest: Cattle, including lactating dairy cows: Buffalo Flies (Haematobia irritans exigua), nuisance flies and biting lice (Damalinia bovis)

States Registered: For treatment of Buffalo Fly in Qld, NSW, NT & WA.  For treatment of nuisance flies and biting lice in all states.

Rate: For Fly and Cattle Biting Lice control – One tag on one ear of each animal (1/head)

Critical Comments:

For Buffalo Fly Control – Apply when fly numbers exceed acceptable levels.  Removal of tags after three (3) months will ensure fly populations are not exposed to sublethal doses, which may increase the chance of resistance.  Remove tags with tag remover. The level and duration of control may be reduced under high fly pressure. The whole herd is to be treated concurrently.

For Cattle Biting Lice Control – Apply tags in late Autumn or early Winter and remove them after three (3) months.
