Recommendations for the Control of Arthropod Pests of Livestock, Poultry and Farm Buildings in Western Canada


Updated Livestock-Poultry Pest Control Guide - Philip

Hugh Philip recently updated the guide, “Recommendations for the Control of Arthropod Pests of Livestock, Poultry and Farm Buildings in Western Canada”. The 70-page guide is a valuable resource providing an updated list of insecticides used to control pests of livestock. 

Please pay special attention to the PREFACE which has been copied below:

"This Guide was originally prepared and updated by the Western Committee on Livestock Pests (WCLP) until 1999. The control products listed in the Guide are recommended for use on livestock and poultry and in farm buildings in Western Canada. Not all of the products listed are available through all agricultural chemical retailers and veterinary clinics. The information presented in this Guide does not supersede or substitute the instructions on the product labels. Always read the label before using any control product recommended in this Guide. The Guide is also subject to all those changes, including deletions and revisions in the label claims of products that are authorized by Health Canada as required under the Pest Control Products Act and the Food and Drugs Act."
