GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Hand spraying

Ensure all parts of the animal are thoroughly wet, especially the belly, inside legs, and ear (especially in pigs). Animals should be restrained in a crush for spraying. A pump

capable of delivering a coarse spray should be used. Knapsack sprays are not recommended.

Fresh spraywash must be made up for each day's treatment. Clean out the spray reservoir at the end of each day and discard any remaining wash.

Two treatments 7-10 days apart are recommended for sows and gilts before entering farrowing pens, for piglets at weaning, and for pigs newly brought into the piggery.

Boars should be treated every 3 months.

Spray races

METHOD

All spraywash must be used within 24 hours

INITIAL CHARGE

400 mL/200 L of water

MIXING

Pour required amount of Amitraz EC into a bucket and stir thoroughly. Pour contents of bucket into reservoir or sump. Rinse bucket and add

rinsings to the wash. Fill reservoir with total volume of water required.

STIRRING

Spraywash in reservoir or sump must be thoroughly stirred for a minimum of 5 minutes at commencement of each spraying session and again if

there is a break of more than half an hour during spraying.

REINFORCEMENT

Each time the level of spraywash in the sump drops by 200 L, add 250 mL of Amitraz EC without adding water and continue spraying. If level

of wash is allowed to fall excessively without reinforcement, concentration of Amitraz EC will fall and efficacy will be reduced. Repeat

reinforcement until no more wash can be pumped out. If continuing spraying, make up more wash at the initial charge rate and complete

spraying. When wash is polluted, clean out sump before recharging

STABILITY

Because the wash is not stabilised, any remaining wash must be discarded and a new batch made up for the next spraying session

SAMPLING

Sampling not required

PRECAUTION:

Treat animals in accordance with good agricultural practice. Animals should not be treated in extremely hot weather (>40

C) or if under heat stress. Ensure adequate shade

is available post-treatment.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK, WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEA AND ENVIRONMENT:

Dangerous to fish. Do not contaminate dams, streams or waterways with the product, used containers. Do NOT use empty containers for any other purpose. Clean up

spillages promptly.

Health Hazard

Information

Amitraz: The ingestion of large quantities may cause hypotension,

sedation, slowing of the heart beat and hypothermia. Effects are

irritation and contact dermatitis. Aspiration of even small amounts

is associated with the danger of severe lung damage with a

possibly fatal outcome (chemical pneumonia).
