Further information
Alphacypermethrin is a synthetic pyrethroid, which works as an insecticide and repellent by inhibiting neural transmission in insects. Alphacypermethrin is lipophilic and is retained in the wool grease of the sheep fleece to provide protection from blowflies for up to 8 to 10 weeks.
Alphacypermethrin has low toxicity to mammals. There have been no tests of the effects of alphacypermethrin on foetal or lamb development.
The Simcro Tech 25 ml pour-on applicator gun and associated T-bar is recommended as the product may have a detrimental effect on certain parts of conventional dosing guns and this will also ensure correct application and distribution of the product.
