    Field study to assess the efficacy and safety of a Deltamethrin pour-on formulation against Culicoides biting midges attacking sheep


    Midges (Culicoides spp.) are vectors of Bluetongue virus (BTV) as well as other viral diseases of livestock. Treating ruminants with pyrethroids could reduce the infection risk by a repellent or lethal effect for midges resulting in a reduced contact between vector and host. In this study, the efficacy of a Deltamethrin formulation against midges attacking sheep is investigated in field studies performed on a farm in Groß Kreutz, Brandenburg.
