Abstract:Cattle treated by attaching strips of polyvinyl chloride impregnated with 20% dichlorvos around their legs during the season (Jan.–May) when adult flies are active were examined for encapsulated Hypoderma lineatum (Villers) the following fall-winter. Treatments, consisting of 5 g dichlorvos/leg, gave essentially complete control (98–100%) whether all legs or only rear legs were treated and whether or not treatments were renewed in Mar. Treatments of 2.5 g dichlorvos/leg gave 100% control if the treatments were renewed in Mar. but only 91% control if they were not.
