Ear ticks

Postby Cross-7 » Thu May 25, 2017 3:24 pm

Ticks are bad right now.
Little calves have droopy ears and I can't spray them everyday.

Ear tags work ?
Anything better ?

Fly Ban works on ear ticks (also flies and lice). This time of year we spray every couple weeks and we do not use ear tags.

Thank you
I spray but 2 days later they're kicking at their ears again.

The pour on and injectable are both decent treatments. I use both, Texas Fever Tick has spread in the last year. I havent seen a tick ever on the cattle. Hope I never do.
