DEOSECT SPRAY FOR HORSES - FLY & LICE CONTROL
Sizes Available: 250ml & 1 Litre
Deosect Spray for Horses is a cypermethrin spray concentrate for the control of flies and lice on horses. Deosect Spray must be diluted with water to make a solution just before use. A knapsack or hand sprayer or a sponge may be used to apply the solution. For the best results the solution should be used within 24 hours.
One litre (2 pints) of Deosect Spray concentrate should be diluted with 50 litres (11 gallons) of water. Alternatively, the following table may be used:
10 ml ...500 ml
20 ml ...1 litre
100 ml ...5 litres
200 ml ...10 litres
(The Deosect Cap holds 5ml of the solution.)
A medium fine spray is advisable to avoid fogging of the diluted Deosect Spray. Careful attention must be paid to total animal coverage, especially the face, legs, back and hind quarters. Avoid spraying directly into animals eyes. The following amounts should be used:
Horses – 500 ml of diluted solution per animal.
Ponies – 125 ml of diluted solution per animal.
A straw coloured or pale yellow emulsifiable concentrate, containing 5% w/v cypermethrin (cis 50: trans 50).
The application of the solution should commence at the onset of the fly season and be repeated monthly for general fly control and every two weeks for severe head and face fly control.
