Apply a single dose with the special "Squeeze 'n' Pour" dispenser pack or the Fly & Lice Spot On Applicator on one spot on the mid-line of the back at the shoulders as directed on dispenser or applicator gun pack. For blowfly strike on sheep see following specific indication directions.
Lice on cattle
One application will generally eradicate all lice. Complete clearance of all lice may take 4–5 weeks during which time lice hatch from the eggs and are killed. A very few lice may survive on a small minority of animals. Therefore, it may be necessary on rare occasions to re-treat an animal 6 to 8 weeks later.
Flies on cattle
To control biting and non-biting flies, frequency of treatment will depend on numbers and species of flies present. Where horn flies predominate, good control can be expected for 4–8 weeks. Treatment for fly control should not be repeated within four weeks.
Ticks on sheep
Application to the mid-point of the shoulders will provide useful control of ticks attaching to animals of all ages, for up to six weeks after treatment.
Keds and lice on sheep
Application to the mid-point of the shoulders of sheep in short or long fleece will reduce the incidence of a biting lice or ked infestation over a 4–6 week period after treatment.
N.B. For control of ticks, keds and lice on sheep the fleece should be parted and Spot On applied to the skin of the animal.
When using the Fly & Lice Spot On applicator, application to the skin can be achieved by inserting the T bar to separate the fleece and penetrate down to the skin level before squeezing the applicator handle.
Established blowfly strike on sheep
Apply directly to the maggot infested area as soon as fly strike is seen. One application will ensure blowfly larvae are killed in a short time. In the case of more advanced strike lesions, clipping out of stained wool before treatment is advisable.
Lice and ticks on lambs
Application to the mid-point of the shoulders will provide useful control of ticks for up to 6 weeks after treatment and will reduce the incidence of biting lice over a 4-6 week period after treatment.
