Kill cattle tick and worms fast plus protect the herd from cattle tick long-term
Acatak™ Duostar is a pour-on formulation containing the tick development inhibitor fluazuron and a broad spectrum anti-parasitic, ivermectin. Acatak™ Duostar is used for the strategic control of fluazuron sensitive cattle tick (Rhipicephalus microplus) on beef cattle. It also treats and controls ivermectin sensitive internal and external parasites of beef cattle, including gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworm, sucking and biting lice, sarcoptic and chorioptic mites and buffalo fly. Applied early in the season as part of a strategic control program, Acatak™ Duostar not only reduces the build-up of the tick population on cattle and pastures but helps to prolong the life of all available tick treatments.
