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 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 after 3 months.

Y-Tex Python Maxima Insecticidal Cattle Ear Tags contain Synthetic Pyrethroid (PY) insecticides and are specifically recommended for use in a rotation program with organophosphate (OP) insecticides (eg.
