Abstract:An initial experiment was conducted in which dairy cows were fed one of 5 formulations of technical Rabonµ insecticide (2-chloro-l-(2,4,5-trichlorophenyl) vinyl dimethyl phosphate) at levels ranging from 4.5 to 36 ppm of the total air-dry ration. Formulations ranging in size between 74 and 177 µ were more effective larvicides against the house fly than were formulations containing particles less than 74 µ (90% mortality vs. 6% mortality at 4.5 ppm) .
In a field trial, manure from cows fed 30, 45, 60, and 90 ppm of technical Rabon (> 74 µ particle size) reduced larval populations by 81, 88, 93, and 98% compared with manure from control cows. Some of the milk samples from cows fed Rabon had low, but detectable (up to 0.015 ppm) , Rabon residues.
In field-stacked manure piles originally containing up to 10 ppm Rabon, levels were down to 0.5 ppm in 8 days.
