Table 1 Number of live Hypoderma lineatum larvae collected and efficacy of LONGRANGE® against infestation with first-stage, and second- and third-stage larvae of H. lineatum of cattle

From: LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin 5% w/v extended-release injection) efficacy against Hypoderma lineatum in an endemic area in southern Italy
