Critical Comments 
1. Retreat when you first see ticks but not before at least 6 weeks after the previous treatment. 2. Maximum number of treatments per annual tick season: 3. 3. To achieve optimal efficacy, iO TICKGARD DUO relies on a combination of absorption through the skin and oral ingestion (via grooming). For oral ingestion it is critical that the product is applied as 2 x 7 cm wide bands, from the shoulder to the rump, that are well separated on either side of the spine. Use an approved TICKGARD DUO applicator.  4. The weight of cattle should be determined by either scales or a weighband. Dose individuals according to the heaviest animal in the mob. Recommended rate gives 1.5 mg fluazuron and 0.5 mg ivermectin per kg bodyweight of beef cattle. DO NOT underdose. 5. There is no need to treat calves for cattle tick as long as they suckle treated cows. Calves will receive adequate protection from their mother. A reduced length of protection may occur in cows which are suckling calves. 6. TICKGARD DUO should not be applied to show cattle as a light scurfiness may be visible for some time after treatment. 7. The effect of TICKGARD DUO is not adversely affected if rain occurs after application.
