CRITICAL COMMENTS

Sheep Blowfly control

(Lucilia cuprina)

Jetting

2 L per 1000 L

2. This product is not recommended for use in jetting races because a reduced period of

protection may result unless the jetting race has been modified in accordance with Agriculture

NSW recommendations.

3. Apply 2 to 4 L of jetting fluid per sheep, depending on sheep size and wool length.

4. Ensure saturation to the skin.

5. Pay particular attention to treatment of the crutch, pizzles and polls.

Dipping

(Plunge – Shower

and constant

replenishment)

2 L per 1000 L

2 L per

1000 L

1. Dip sheep on onset of fly wave.

Thoroughly saturate sheep. When using a shower dip, run top and bottom sprays independently

so as to ensure maximum pressure and therefore penetration.

3. The product should not be used alone as a dip for blowfly control on sheep with less than 6

weeks wool as a reduced period of protection may result.

4. This product is a non-stripping dip. Reinforcement with undiluted concentrate is not required

when topping up.

Dressing

2 L per 1000 L

die.

NOT TO BE USED FOR ANY PURPOSE, OR IN ANY MANNER, CONTRARY TO THIS LABEL UNLESS AUTHORISED UNDER

APPROPRIATE

LEGISLATION.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Dipping sheep heavily infested with grass seeds is not recommended. Heavy

rain following the application of this product could diminish the period of

protection. If used in jetting races a reduced period of protection may result.

MIXING

SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE
