Fly Control Program
VMS Pasture Aid Fly Control Mineral with Rabon prevents the development of fecal flies in the manure of treated cattle, but it is not effective against existing adult flies. It may be necessary to use other control measures to reduce the population of existing adult flies. Supplemental fly control measures may be needed in and around buildings to control adult house flies and stable flies which breed not only in animal manure but also in other decaying matter on the premises. In order to achieve optimum fly control, VMS Pasture Aid Fly Control Mineral with Rabon should be used in conjunction with other good management and sanitation practices. Start feeding VMS Pasture Aid Fly Control Mineral with Rabon early in the spring before flies begin to appear and continue feeding throughout the summer and into the fall. VMS Pasture Aid Fly Control Mineral with Rabon may be fed to cattle up to slaughter.
