Diflubenzuron bolus for control of fly larvae



Diflubenzuron bolus for control of fly larvae



Journal of Agricultural Entomology 3(1): 48-55



A sustained-release bolus containing 10% diflubenzuron (Dimilin, N-[[(4-chlorophenyl)amino]carbonyl]-2,6-difluorobenzamide) was highly effective in preventing development of larval horn flies, Haematobia irritans (Linnaeus), face flies, Musca autumnalis De Geer, and to a lesser degree stable flies, Stomoxys calcitrans (Linnaeus), and house flies, Musca domestica (Linnaeus), in the manure of treated cattle. Both molded and compressed boluses provided 14-17 weeks control of horn flies and face flies. When steers weighing ca. 300 kg were treated with compressed boluses (either two 25-g, one 50-g, or two 50-g boluses), the manure was unsuitable for horn fly development for 14-17 weeks posttreatment. Treatment with two 25-g boluses was insufficient for stable fly inhibition; however, two 50-g boluses provided near minimum effective dosages. The 25-g bolus, when applied either as a single bolus or as a group of four boluses to large (ca. 700 kg) Holstein cows, prevented development of face flies in the manure. Also, the erosion rate of these boluses in rumen-fistulated animals was determined.
