The effectiveness of the pour-on formulation of flumethrin was tested on grazing cattle. Flumethrin was applied once a month from April to October from 1990 to 1995 to cattle grazing in the Aso area of Kumamoto Prefecture in Japan. Both the number of ticks in the field and the number of ticks feeding on cattle decreased remarkably in relation to the number of years flumethrin was applied. Ticks in the field were not detected in 1994 and 1995, and ticks feeding on cattle decreased to 4% in 1995. Mortality due to Theileria sergenti infection also decreased significantly after more than 3 years of flumethrin pour-on application, although overall mortality did not change. At the end of the trial the incidence of T. sergenti had decreased to one-fifth of the pretrial value, although total incidence of disease had not changed. These results indicated that multiple-year seasonal application of flumethrin pour-on to grazing cattle effectively decreased the number of ticks and decreased both mortality and incidence of T. sergenti.
