Studying the possibilities of using DDT and HCCH for combatting dipterous blood sucking insects, the parasites of farm animals

Studying the possibilities of using DDT and HCCH for combatting dipterous blood sucking insects, the parasites of farm animals

Tr Vses N I Inst Vet Sanitarii I Ektoparazitol (12): 61-76

The use of a turpentine-creolin emulsion of DDT with HCCH (BHC) is recommended for the mass treatment of cattle against infestation by dipterous insects. Such an emulsion (the method of preparation is described) possesses insecticidal as well as repellant properties and gives better results than sprays, oil solutions and emulsions of DDT and HCCH with a creolin base. As calves and cows were repeatedly sprayed with this emulsion, the clinical health of the animals, their blood indicators and hides were not negatively affected. The milk yields did not diminish, while the amount of DDT secreted with milk was 6-10 times smaller than when the cows were treated with an oil solution of DDT. Spraying grass and bush growing areas with DDT and HCCH in order to destroy Diptera was unsuccessful.
