Directions For Use

It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. The labeling must be in the possession of the user at the time of pesticide application.

Resistance-management Recommendations. For resistance management, PYthon II Insecticide Cattle Ear Tag contains a Group 3A/Zeta-cypermethrin insecticide. Any insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to PYthon II Insecticide Cattle Ear Tag and other Group 3A insecticides. The resistant individuals may dominate the insect population if this group of insecticides are used repeatedly in the same herds. Appropriate resistance management strategies should be followed. Monitor after application for unexpected target pest survival. If the level of survival suggests the presence of resistance, consult with your local university specialist or certified pest control advisor.

To control horn flies for up to 3 months (13 weeks) and aid in control of face flies (mechanical vector of Moraxella bovis, the bacterium which causes “pink eye” in cattle), apply one tag per animal in late spring. To control horn flies, face flies (mechanical vector of Moraxella bovis, the bacterium which causes “pink eye” in cattle), lice, Gulf Coast ticks and Spinose ear ticks for up to 3 months (13 weeks) and to aid in control of stable flies, black flies, house flies and small horse flies, apply two tags per animal (1 in each ear) when flies appear in the spring. Apply 2 tags to large bulls for optimum horn fly protection.

For season-long lice control, apply tags in late fall. To control biting lice, shortnosed sucking lice and aid in control of other sucking lice, apply 1 tag per calf or 2 tags per mature animal (1 in each ear). Apply as shown with the Y-TEX 2-piece tagging system. All animals in the herd should be tagged. To minimize development of insecticide resistance, remove used tags at end of fly and lice seasons, and follow Y-TEX’s recommended tag rotation program. Remove tags before slaughter.

Step 1
