Critical Comments:
For Buffalo Fly Control - Apply when fly numbers exceed acceptable levels.  Removal of tags after 3 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.
