General Information: Used as directed, Protector Ear Tags will provide season-long control of horn flies and will reduce annoyance from face flies. Significant gains in weight and milk yield can be achieved with Protector. This tag contains an active ingredient from the organophosphate family and is designed to control horn flies and reduce annoyance from face flies that may already be resistant to the synthetic pyrethroid family of insecticides.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE: a) Wear chemical-resistant gloves during product use. b) For maximum benefit, apply early each spring before flies emerge. Delaying applications until fly populations have built up may result in some loss of control. c) The entire herd must be tagged to control flies as claimed. d) Rate to use: HORN FLIES: tag 1 ear, FACE FLIES: tag both ears. e) Remove tags at the end of the season and before slaughter. f) Dip pliers with stud into a disinfectant before tagging of each animal.

Application PROCEDURE: Protector Ear Tags can be conveniently applied with the Allflex Tagging System™. Assemble unit and position tag on the firm flat surface in the centre of the ear between the ribs. Make sure the shaft of the male tag does not penetrate a rib or blood vessel.
