Use of dichlorvos in a portable automatic sprayer-mineral station to control face flies and pyrethroid-resistant horn flies on beef cattle



Use of dichlorvos in a portable automatic sprayer-mineral station to control face flies and pyrethroid-resistant horn flies on beef cattle



Journal of Agricultural Entomology 9(4): 273-281



A portable automatic sprayer, actuated when cattle obtain mineral, was tested against face flies and pyrethroid-resistant horn flies using 0.5% AI dichlorvos in a water spray mixture. Horn fly populations were initially 48-fold resistant to permethrin with no resistance to diazinon. Horn fly control averaged 90.3 to 99.1% reduction. Resistance to permethrin decreased from 48-fold to 33-fold over 2 yr with no change in diazinon resistance. Face fly control averaged from 56.4 to 76.8% reduction. The cost for this system of fly control was approximately 33% the cost of effective insecticide ear tags (two/head).
