The efficacy of self applicating devices for control of the face fly musca autumnalis diptera muscidae and the horn fly haematobia irritans diptera muscidae on cattle near guelph ontario canada






Proceedings of the Entomological Society of Ontario 110: 9-18

The efficacy of self applicating devices for control of the face fly musca autumnalis diptera muscidae and the horn fly haematobia irritans diptera muscidae on cattle near guelph ontario canada

The efficacy of several, self-applicating devices and insecticides in controlling the face fly, M. autumnalis DeGeer, and the horn fly H. irritans (L.) on cattle, was evaluated. The free-choice devices tested were the Injecto-Rub oiler with 1% crotoxyphos and the Dr-Scratch back rubber with 3% stirofos dust. A forced-use device, the Farnam Walk-Way oiler containing Ciovap (1% crotoxyphos and 0.25% dichlorvos) and a combination forced-use and free-choice device, the Tox-O-Wik beef oiler containing 1% malathion and 2.5% methoxychlor, were also evaluated. Only the Tox-O-Wik beef oiler provided a significant reduction in the populations of the face fly. Free-choice devices did not provide satisfactory control of the horn fly whereas forced-use and combination forced-use and free-choice devices provided excellent control of this insect.
