Abstract:In 1970. a study was conducted in cast-central South Dakota to compare effectiveness of dust ba"s to back rubbers in controlling horn flies. Haematobia irritans (l.) , and face flies, Musca autumnlis De Geer, on beef Cattle. These devices were placed in a self-applicatory situation. The dust hags were tilled with 1.816 kg of 3% crotoxyphos, and the back rubber contained a mixture of 0.946 liter toxaphene 6 EC to 18.925 liters used motor oil. Both self-applicatory devices provided excellent horn fly control on cows and calves throughout the test period. but face fly control was much less effective.
