PYthon is a fast-acting, sustained-release insecticidal ear tag containing synergized S-isomer pyrethroid compound for Buffalo fly, Cattle Biting Lice and Paralysis Tick control.  
PYthon has excellent activity against Buffalo flies, including Buffalo flies that are resistant to certain other insecticides.  A high loading of piperonyl butoxide synergizes this S-isomer and dramatically reduces the effect of pyrethroid resistance, making PYthon ideal for rotation with diazinon tags.  
PYthon's exclusive Tri-Polymer matrix of non-toxic inert constituents continuously delivers a high ratio of synergist to insecticide for maximum insect-killing action.  PYthon's net weight of 9.5 grams allows it to be used on cattle of all ages.
For up to 4 months control of susceptible Buffalo Flies and aids in control of Cattle Biting Lice on beef and dairy cattle and aids in control of Paralysis Tick on suckling beef and dairy calves for up to 42 days after treatment.
  • Registered for use on beef and dairy cattle, including newborn calves and lactating dairy cattle.
  • Works very rapidly, usually eliminating Buffalo flies within 1 day.
  • Brings proven weight gains.
  • Reduces need for frequent insecticide treatments and mustering costs.
  • Works well as an integral component of an insecticidal rotation program with OPtimizer and other organophosphate ear tags to help prevent Buffalo fly insecticide resistance.
  • The name with uppercase "PY", informs end-users of the chemical class of the PYthon ear tag, i.e., PYrethroid. For rotation, OPtimizer is similarly named; i.e., "OP" for OrganoPhosphate.
  • Has Nil Withholding Period and Nil Export Slaughter interval.
  • Has Y-TEX® patented Snap-Lok™ collar for guaranteed retention against tag or button failure for 5 months.
  • Uses the proven Y-TEX® two-piece application system.
  • Is rainfast and dip fast.
  • Can be safely used in conjunction with other pesticides and medicinal applications; e.g., cattle tick acaricides and anthelmintics.
  • Is environmentally friendly.

Critical Comments:
For Buffalo Fly Control.
  • Apply when fly numbers exceed acceptable levels.
  • Removal of tags at 4 months will ensure fly populations are not exposed to sublethal doses which may increase the chance of resistance.
  • Remove tags with tag remover.
  • The Level and duration of control may be reduced under high fly pressure.
  • The whole herd is to be treated concurrently.
For Cattle Biting Lice Control:
  • Apply Tags in late Autumn or early Winter and remove after 3 months.
For Paralysis Tick Control:
  • Aids in control of Paralysis ticks (Ixodes Holocylus) for p to 42 days.  For effective control, both cow and calf should be treated.
Remove tags prior to slaughter

  4. Squeeze handles of applicator together.
General Instructions: Python Insecticidal Cattle Ear Tags will give effective control of Buffalo flies if used regularly on all animals in the group.  The treatment regime with a periodic rotation program will reduce the potential for insecticide resistance to develop.  Python Insecticidal Cattle Ear Tags are specifically recommended for use in a rotation program with organophosphate (OP) tas fro the control of Buffalo fly.  A 3 year program is currently recommended with the use of OP Tags in years 1 & 2 and Python Tags in the Year 3.  More than 90% reduction in biting lice numbers can be expected with the use of Python Tags.
Withholding Periods:
Meat: Nil. Milk: Nil.
