Why Choose Taktic WP?
Easy to use wettable powder
- Taktic WP is an easy to use wettable powder that can be used in both plunge dips and spray races. For spraying applications, however, Taktic EC is recommended.
- Taktic WP contains amitraz, a highly effective acaricide that controls susceptible ticks on cattle (including those that are resistant to synthetic pyrethroids and organophosphates). Unlike many other products used for tick control, Taktic kills all stages of the tick and the ticks detach quickly after treatment. This can reduce the time required for holding cattle in yards before movement, and encourages rapid healing of the attachment site. Cattle are normally clear of ticks within 3-4 days of treatment. Unlike some other products such as the ML pour-ons and injections, amitraz has no activity against internal parasites, so use of Taktic WP for tick control will not inadvertently select for chemical resistance in worm populations.
Ideal pre-clearing treatment
- Taktic WP is ideal for use as a preliminary treatment prior to presenting cattle for inspection at the Queensland tick line (as required by law) because it kills all stages of the tick and ticks detach quickly following treatment. This reduces the length of time required to hold cattle in a tick-free environment prior to movement and simplifies the management procedures required to minimise the chance of ticks being detected on the cattle during inspection and the additional holding times and costs that are incurred as a result.
Nil withholding periods
- The nil meat withholding period of Taktic WP provides flexibility to take advantage of marketing opportunities. It allows animals to be cleaned of susceptible ticks prior to sending them to saleyards (as required by law) quickly and without any resulting withholding issues. Taktic WP has a nil milk withholding period, giving dairy farmers the flexibility to treat the milking herd when it is required. Taktic WP can also be used at short intervals to avoid the death of animals, particularly calves, where the paralysis tick pressure is high without generating residue problems.
