Assessment of Diflubenzuron as a Feed-through Larvicide in Mink

INTRODUCTION: Larvadex® and Rabon® are the two feed-through larvicides most commonly used in the mink industry to control flies. Rabon® is specifically approved for use with mink. Recently, there has been interest in a product containing the active ingredient diflubenzuron (currently used in cattle and marketed as ClariFly®) that is thought to be more effective than Larvadex or Rabon.
