Use Restrictions

For Horses: This product contains Tetrachlorvinphos, which is a cholinesterase inhibitor. The most frequently reported clinical signs of cholinesterase in the horse are abdominal pain, lethargy, sweating, tearing and excessive salivation. If these signs are seen in horses, consult your veterinarian immediately. Do not use this product simultaneously or within a week before or after treatment with cholinesterase inhibiting drugs, pesticides or chemicals. Consult a veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged, pregnant or nursing animals. This product has not been tested in breeding horses.

Do not use this product on horses destined for slaughter.

General Information

Rations containing this product may be fed up to slaughter and to lactating dairy cows without withholding the milk from market during or after treatment.

Start feeding RABON larvicidal feeds early in the spring before flies begin to appear and continue feeding throughout the summer and into the fall until cold weather restricts fly activity.

When fed, this product passes through the digestive system into the animal’s manure where it kills fly larvae on contact shortly after fly eggs hatch.

In some cases, supplemental fly control measures may be needed in and around cattle lots and barns to control adult house flies and stable flies which can breed not only in manure but in other decaying vegetable matter or silage on the premises.

In order to achieve optimum fly control, this product should be used in conjunction with other good management and sanitation practices.

This product will mix uniformly in feeds when standard mixing procedures are followed. Thus, usual problems that are common to all feed preparation and which cause stratification such as excessive free-fall or excessive handling, are to be avoided. It is recommended that appropriate pre-blending techniques be employed to assure adequate distribution throughout the feed mix. The premix should be pre-blended with ground grain, protein supplements, mineral mixes, etc. before being added to roughages such as chopped hay or silage. Mixing time should be adequate to assure uniform dispersion. Optimum performance can be assured only if this product is dispersed uniformly with the feedstuff at the recommended level. Common feed mixing equipment (i.e. vertical mixer, horizontal blender, mixer/feed truck) may be used to prepare formulated feeds.

Use Restrictions

Do not use this product simultaneously or within a week before or after treatment with cholinesterase inhibiting drugs, pesticides or chemicals.

Application Restrictions

Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or indirectly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application. Feeds prepared with this product should not be pelleted nor be mixed with feeds containing predominantly pellets. Further, this product should not be mixed in liquid feed supplements.

Application Instruction

This product may be fed to cows, swine and mink up to slaughter and to lactating cows.

Cattle

As A Topdressing

Add this product daily to the grain or concentrate portion of the horse’s diet to provide 70 mg of RABON 7.76 per 100 lbs. of body weight.

This is equivalent to the following: 1/2 tablespoon for a 250 lb. animal; 1 level tablespoon for a 500 lb. animal, 2 level tablespoons (8.8 g) for a 1000 lb. animal or 4 tablespoons for a 2000 lb. animal.

All horses in the stable area should be treated.

Mink

When fed to mink, RABON passes through the digestive system into the droppings where fly larvae are killed on contact shortly after the fly eggs hatch. This product can be mixed in mink feeds to prevent the development of house flies but should not be used as the sole method of control. It is recommended that appropriate pre-blending techniques be employed when mixing to assure an adequate distribution of RABON throughout the feed mix. Pre-blend with soybean meal, alfalfa meal, mineral mix, etc. before being added to other ingredients. Common feed mixing equipment (i.e. vertical mixers, horizontal blenders) may be used to prepare formulated feeds. Add this product to the total feed at a rate that will ensure that each animal will consume 3 mg of RABON per kg of body weight (1-2 mg/lb.) per day. Use the following table as a guide.

Start feeding Mink larvicidal feeds early in the spring before flies begin to appear and continue feeding throughout the summer until cold weather restricts fly activity. Supplemental adult fly control measures may be needed in and around the animal facilities and feed building to control adult flies, especially house flies that can breed in many kinds of organic matter.

In order to achieve optimum fly control, this product should be used in conjunction with other good management and sanitation practices.
