Directions For Use

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

Precautions and Restrictions:

● Only protected handlers may be in the area during application.

Apply strips as directed below for Horn Flies and Gulf Coast Ticks:

● Horn Flies: 1 strip/animal for up to 3 months control
2 strips/animal for up to 5 months control (1 strip on each ear)

For breeds with large ears, apply to back of ear for optimum control of horn flies

● Gulf Coast Ticks: 2 strips/animal for up to 4 months control (1 strip on each ear)

Apply strips as directed below for the listed pests:

● Spinose Ear Ticks: 2 strips/animal (1 strip on the front of each ear) to aid in control for up to 3 to 4 months

● American Dog Ticks: 2 strips/animal (1 strip per ear) to aid in control for up to 3 months

● Lone Star Ticks: 2 strips/animal (1 strip per ear) to aid in control for 2 months

● Face Flies (Musca autumnalis): 2 strips/animal (1 strip on the front of each ear) to reduce Face Flies

For use only on ID tags that the application site has completely healed. Preferably use with ID tags that were applied the previous season or earlier. In cases where there is only one established ID tag location, an XP 820® Insecticide Cattle Ear Tag can be applied to the other ear for optimum protection. Application can never exceed 2 strips per animal; 2 tags per animal; or 1 strip and 1 tag per animal.

Apply as shown over the button of any existing 2 piece ID tag, such as the Y-TEX All American® 2 piece ID tag system, using 1, 2, 3, or 4 star tags. If ID tags are not present in both ears, an XP 820 Insecticide Cattle Ear Tag can be applied in one ear. Apply as directed on the XP 820 Insecticide Cattle Ear Tag box. Application can never exceed 2 strips per animal; 2 tags per animal; or 1 strip and 1 tag per animal.

Apply as shown when attaching to male/female combination ID tags or one piece ID tags by folding tag body and placing tag through the “key hole” in strip and sliding the strip up and over the shaft of the tag system. It is not recommended to place the strip on the back of a one piece ID tag.

Apply when flies or ticks become a problem. Reapply as necessary, up to two treatments per year. All animals in the herd should be treated to avoid dilution of the treatment. To minimize development of insecticide resistance in horn flies, remove used strips and/or tags at the end of the season and follow Y-TEX’s recommended insecticide rotation program. Remove strips and/or tags before slaughter.
