Continual exposure of horn flies to a single class of insecticide (e.g., pyrethroids, organophosphates, or chlorinated hydrocarbons) may lead to the development of resistance to that class of insecticide. In order to reduce the possibility of horn flies developing resistance, it is important to rotate the class of insecticide used and/or the method of horn fly control on a seasonal basis. Corathon® contains the organophosphate insecticides coumaphos and diazinon.
