Prevents adult horn fly emergence from manure of treated cattle. A nutritional supplement containing S-Methroprene Insect Growth Regulator for continuous feeding to cattle through the horn fly season.



When used as directed, SWEETLIX® 6% CopperHead® IGR with RainBloc® will provide sufficient S-methoprene insect growth regulator to prevent the emergence of adult horn flies fro manure of treated cattle. Existing adult horn flies will not be affected. Start feeding before horn flies appear and continue use until cold weather marks the end of the horn fly season. Allow free choice to cattle. Cattle should consume an average of 0.4 ounces of this product per 100 lbs. of bodyweight per day, which is equivalent to 4 ounces per day for a 1000-lb. animal.

  1. Assure cattle are not starved for nutrients in SWEETLIX® 6% CopperHead® IGR with RainBloc® by providing them prior to feeding SWEETLIX® 6% CopperHead® IGR with RainBloc®.
  2. Offer cattle 50 pounds for every 15 head of cattle.
  3. Remove all other self-limiting nutritional supplements.
  4. Locate SWEETLIX® 6% CopperHead® IGR with RainBloc® where cattle congregate (watering, loafing, shad areas).
  5. Replenish SWEETLIX® 6% CopperHead® IGR with RainBloc®  on a regular basis as needed.
  6. If intake of SWEETLIX® 6% CopperHead® IGR with RainBloc®  is below 0.4 oz. per 100 lbs. animal body weight per day, increase the number of feeding locations and/or change locations to areas more frequented by cattle.
  7. If intake of SWEETLIX® 6% CopperHead® IGR with RainBloc® is above 0.4 oz. per 100 lbs. animal body weight per day, reduce the number of feeding locations and/or change locations to areas less frequented by cattle.
  8. Introduction of this product after adult horn fly infestation is established will require treatment of cattle with adulticides if elimination of the adult fly population is desired.
