Y-TEX XP 820 MACROCYCLIC LACTONE Insecticide Ear Strips (50/bag)
The NEW Y-Tex XP 820 Insecticide Cattle Strip can be attached to an existing ID ear tag in the ear, providing the the protection of an insecticide tag without the need to apply a separate tag through the ear or make another hole. XP 820 Strip has a key hole slit through which existing button can be manually fed, allowing Strip to lie flat between ear and button.
XP 820™ is a unique, slow-release ear tag for cattle that is the first ever tag to contain abamectin (avermectins B1a and B1b),a highly active macrocyclic lactone that has never been used before on cattle in the USA. The patent-pending formulation contains a high loading of piperonyl butoxide which synergizes the abamectin for maximum pesticidal action. XP 820 is particularly effective against horn flies, including strains resistant to synthetic pyrethroid and organophosphate insecticides.
XP 820 is also effective against ear ticks, American Dog Ticks, Cattle Fever Ticks (Boophilus species) and Lone Star Ticks. The XP 820 tag has a net weight of 9 grams and a metallic gold color.
