Apply as indicated (Figures 1-4). Remove tags at end of fly season or prior to slaughter.

Continual exposure of horn flies to a single class of insecticide (e.g.,pyrethroids, organophosphates, chlorinated hydrocarbons or avermectin) 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. CyGuard™ contains the pyrethroid insecticide beta-cyfluthrin.
