Note: Virbamec has a sustained effect sufficient to control

mite infestations

throughout the egg to adult life cycle. However, since the effect is not immediate,

care must be taken to prevent reinfestation from exposure to untreated animals or

contaminated facilities. Generally, pigs should not be moved to clean quarters or

exposed to uninfested pigs for at least one week after treatment.

Sows should be

treated at least one week before farrowing to minimise transfer of mites to newborn

pigs.

Louse eggs are unaffected by Virbamec and may require up to three weeks to hatch.

Louse infestations developing from hatching eggs may require retreatment.

Sterilise all

injection apparatus by boiling (or equivalent) before use.

Avoid use of strong disinfectants on apparatus.

Do not contaminate dams,

rivers or streams or other waterways with the chemical
