By MIKE BARBOUR County extension agent
Livestock producers in Texas are experiencing problems with resistant hornflies to the pyrethroid insecticides in ear tags.
These strategies can help eliminate homilies that become resistant. Do not attempt to control them until economically damaging populations develop, apply tags when over IOO flies-head are noticed If control is not achieved in 10-12 days following application of new tags, resistance can be suspected
Sprays, pour-orts, dust, or spot-ons with P04-type compounds such as
Co-Hal, Cyodrin, or malathion can provide a different mode of controlling resistant hornily populations Whole-body sprays of pyrethroid insecticide should not be used on hornflies which can’t be controlled with eartags.
Pyrethroid eartags can be used successfully for spmose ear ticks and Gulf Coast ear ticks. No resistance has been found in these pests Remove the ear tags as soon as they have lost their effectiveness in controlling target pests, since the low level of insecticide left in the tag won’t kill the flies, but may cause them to become more resistant to the insecticide.

The continued treatment of populations of pests with the same insecticide can develop insecticide resistance. Those which survive will cause more resistant generations. Permethrin, fenvalerate and flucithrinate are the 3 pyrethroids currently labeled for use in Texas, and flies resistant to I type of pyrethroid will be resistant to the other pyrethroid as well.
Since last year’s drought took a
heavy toll of ranges over most of Texas, ranchers may want to consider a seeding program to boost the rangeland in 1985.
The first decision that a rancher must make is whether or not to seed. Seeding of rangeland is expensive and the risk of failure is always present.
To begin, evaluate the quantity and distribution of desirable plants currently present. If desirable plants make up less than IO to 15 percent of the vegetation, seeding is probably necessary. Ranges can be improved

Beautifully appointed interiors make these homes something special...
by grazing management if desirable plants are uniformly distributed and make up more than IO to 15 percent of the vegetation.
Seeding is usually necessary following a brush control method such as root-plowing that destroys existing turf. Also, seeding is usually the most effective way to establish desirable vegetation on abandoned cropland.
We recommend seeding only on better sites to insure reasonable chances of success. Steep, potentially erosive sites should not be disturbed.
Seeding range sites that receive runoff water usually provides good
Species and varieties of plants selected for seeding must be adapted to the area's soil, climate and topography.
