Control of the southern cattle tick with insecticide-impregnated ear tags

Control of the southern cattle tick with insecticide-impregnated ear tags

Journal of Economic Entomology 73(5): 651-653

Laboratory trials were carried out in Texas to test the effectiveness of 15% tetrachlorvinphos (stirofos), 8% fenvalerate and 3% deltamethrin impregnated into poly(vinyl chloride) cattle ear tags in controlling Boophilus microplus (Can.). Fenvalerate resulted in the greatest reduction (87%) in the number of engorged females developing from larvae placed on cattle 8, 10 and 12 days after treatment, while tetrachlorvinphos resulted in 84% reduction and deltamethrin in 79% reduction.
