Abstract:Data on the persistence of residues of Sevin® (1-naphthyl N- methylcarbamate)in whole milk from sprayed and dusted cows and on the control of horn fly (Haematobia irritans (L.)) with 5% and 50% Sevin dust are presented. Extraction and chemical assay methods for Sevin in whole milk are described in detail. Effective horn fly control for a period of 15 days was obtained by spreading 1 tablespoonful of 50% Sevin dust down the cow's back. Results indicate that if applications of a 0.5% spray or a 50% dust arc made immediately after the morning or evening milking, no residues of Sevin will result in subsequent milkings.
