I put on a fly tag that slips over existing tags. It seems to be working well but deer and sheep look like Christmas is coming. They are suppose to be good for a few months.
I'm in the house now but if you need the product name just PM me and I will get it from our AI room for you. I want to say it was called Python fly tags by Y-tex.
Thanks from Lash

Jack that is exactly what they are called. I had garlic powder put in my feed this year so hope it cuts back on the flys. They still have some on them but not as much as last year.
Thanks from Lash
