Phase status

Completed

In this review, the APVMA considered a specific pour-on product, Bayticol Pour-on Cattle Tickicide. It contained flumethrin as the active ingredient and was used for the control of cattle tick and paralysis tick, mainly in Queensland and northern New South Wales.

The APVMA began the review of in December 2001 because of concerns that the use of the product according to label instructions would result in beef fat residues that exceeded the MRL and would thus pose a potential risk to Australia’s international trade.
