A clear straw-coloured solution containing 4% w/v permethrin (tech.) (cis:trans/80:20) for external pour-on application.


For the control of flies and lice on cattle. Flypor is particularly effective against biting flies and horn flies, sucking and biting lice, and for the treatment of sarcoptic and chorioptic mange in cattle.

Dosage and administration

Flypor is a ready-to-use solution which should be applied at the rate of 1 ml per 10 kg bodyweight, up to a maximum of 40mls.

Bodyweight Dose
Calves up to 100 kg 10 ml
101 to 200 kg 20 ml
201 to 300 kg 30 ml
Over 300 kg 40 ml

Flypor should be applied using either the calibrated dispensing chamber incorporated into the 1 litre applicator bottle or the approved Novartis Pour-on gun. For fly and lice control approximately one quarter of the calculated dose should be applied to the top of the head, the remainder should be poured along the neck and mid-backline.
A single dose is normally sufficient to control flies for up to 8 weeks. The first treatment should be carried out when the number of flies starts to increase. In cases of heavy infestation, the dose may be repeated at 4 week intervals.
A single dose is normally sufficient to control all lice. In certain cases of heavy infestation, the dose rate may be repeated after 4 weeks.
Sarcoptic and chorioptic mange
When treating mange the calculated dose should be applied directly to all visibly affected areas; any remaining should be poured along the backline in the normal way. For mange the dose should be repeated after 4 weeks.
