This study has been conducted to determine the efficacy level of cypermethrin on the 14 calves that were naturally infested by Linognathus vituli and Bovicola bovis. A 10% solution of cypermethrin was diluted to 0.1% and applied to infested animals twice. All L. vituli were found to be dead after the fourth day of the first application and the second day of the second application. After the first day of application, all of the B. bovis were found dead at the end of each treatment. This study confirmed the protective efficacy of cypermethrin against L. vituli and B. bovis showing that infestation is prevented for a period of about 24-35 days following administration of cypermethrin at this dose.
