is a plastic ear tag containing a new,
synergised formulation of abamectin (avermectins B1a and B1b) and piperonyl
butoxide. Abamectin is a highly active macrocyclic lactone that has never
been used before in an ear tag in Australia. The patentpending formulation
contains a high loading of piperonyl butoxide which synergizes the abamectin
for maximum pesticidal action. This insecticide has excellent activity
against strains of Buffalo Fly known to be resistant to other chemical
compounds like organophosphates and synthetic pyrethroids. This allows for
the first time, an annual three way insecticidal rotation program to be
adopted to reduce the impact of insecticide resistance. The AGRESSOR™ tag
has a net weight of 9 grams and a metallic gold colour.
Controls susceptible buffalo flies for up to 12
weeks in Beef and Dairy Cattle (including lactating diary cattle).
AGRESSOR™ is available in 20 and 100 tag packs, in
sachets of 20 tags each. Each tag contains a male button for attachment.

third rotation option in the Insecticidal tag rotation program with

(PYthon™ and PYthon MAXIMA™) to minimise Buffalo Fly insecticide
