Abstract

The economic benefits of horn fly (Haematobia irritans) control on 87 cows (Brangus and Simmental-Angus) located in Homer, Louisiana, USA, was evaluated during 1991-93. In the spring of each year, fly populations on autumn-calving cows were reduced by an average of 82% for a 12-week period using...

Abstract

A portable automatic sprayer, actuated when cattle obtain minerals, was tested against face flies (Musca autumnalis) and pyrethroid-resistant horn flies (Haematobia irritans) using 0.5% a.i. dichlorvos in a water spray mixture. Horn fly populations were initially 48-fold resistant to permethrin...

Abstract

The effects of infestations with Haematobia irritans on weight loss in Hereford steers were determined in studies in New Mexico in 1979. Screened pens were used in order to confine flies with cattle and to keep some pens free of flies. Following a 99-day assessment period, the average weight gain...

Abstract

Ear and tail tapes containing ampules of viscous preparations of permethrin were applied to the tails of beef and dairy cattle in trials conducted in Florida. Adults of Haematobia irritans were controlled for 9 weeks on beef cattle and 4 weeks on dairy cattle. When applied to the tail, the same...

Abstract

Information on the seasonal population fluctuations of Haematobia irritans and Musca autumnalis on rangeland cattle was obtained from Nebraska in 1982. In 1983, all cattle in part of the study area were treated either with ear tags impregnated with 10% permethrin or with 1% coumaphos from...

Abstract

Dispersal of adults of Haematobia irritans from existing populations to fly-free cattle was studied in Louisiana and Kansas. Rates at which adults infested fly-free cattle placed sequentially, for 10-day intervals, at 0.05, 0.08 and 1.7 km from a source population did not differ significantly and...

Abstract

Ear tags impregnated with flucythrinate and ear tapes containing permethrin provided control of adults of Haematobia irritans for 17 and 15 weeks, respectively, on dairy cattle in Florida in 1983. Adults of Stomoxys calcitrans were controlled for 10 weeks. On beef cattle, 7 weeks were required for...

Abstract

During studies in South Dakota, a combination mineral feeder/aerosol spray device was evaluated for the suppression of adults of Haematobia irritans and Musca autumnalis under range conditions. Beef cattle used the device to obtain salt and minerals, and were sprayed when they pushed a face flap....

Abstract

Yearling stocker calves and mother cows were treated with ear tags containing either stirofos [tetrachlorvinphos] or fenvalerate for the control of Haematobia irritans at Woodward and El Reno, Oklahoma, in 1979-80 and 1982. Tetrachlorvinphos tags in 1979 failed to provide acceptable control and...

Abstract

Following the first reported instances of control failure on cattle treated with insecticide ear tags in North Dakota in 1985, a study was carried out to document and quantify levels of resistance developed by Haematobia irritans to pyrethroids used in ear tags. All 4 populations tested showed high ...
