Abstract:Horn flies, Haematobia irritans (L.), may be controlled without manually applying insecticides to cattle with in- expensive attractant toxicant devices. One such device used ultraviolet radiation to attract flies from the cows to gauze curtains impregnated with a 5% aqueous suspension of Shell SD-8447 (2-ch]oro-1- (2,4,5-trichlorophenyl) vinyl dimethyl phosphate). Maximum effectiveness was obtained at night or early in the morning and when 2 of the de- Wices faced each other on either side of a narrow chute such as that leading to a milking barn.
