Prevention of blowfly strike:
*Do not administer to animals of less than 12.5kg bodyweight at the blowfly prevention dose.
Apply as a fan-spray to the surface of the fleece on the back and hindquarters of the sheep using a recommended Crovect applicator gun fitted with a fan spray nozzle. Half the dose should be applied on the shoulders, back and flanks and half to the rump. The distance between the nozzle and the fleece should be approximately 20 cm. Each dose will require 2 or 3 sweeps to apply. THE PRODUCT WILL PREVENT BLOWFLY STRIKE ONLY ON AREAS COVERED BY SPRAY. One application will give 6–8 weeks protection. Re-treat as required.
Treatment of Blowfly Strike
Apply directly to all the affected parts at the rate of 2.5 ml per 100–150 cm2 (roughly the size of a hand). The T-bar nozzle should be used. Most strikes will require 5–10 ml. Ensure that all affected parts are treated. A single application is sufficient to ensure that larvae are expelled and killed within a few hours.
This product contains a blue dye to aid in the identification of treated animals. The colour is temporary and will fade from the fleece within 48 hours of application.
