Pastoral Ag Tickgard is a ready to use pour-on formulation that contains the powerful insect growth regulator (IGR), fluazuron 25g/L, which interferes with chitin synthesis of the larval stages of the cattle tick.

Controls susceptible strains of cattle tick (Boophilus microplus) & Inhibits tick development within three days. When treated with Pastoral Ag Tickgard, immature ticks are unable to molt to the next stage of their life cycle, and no larvae will hatch from eggs laid by treated females, breaking the tick lifecycle.
