An effective treatment to prevent blowfly strike and control maggots and lice on sheep.
Extinosad™ Eliminator prevents flystrike for four to six weeks and provides rapid knockdown control of lice and maggots on sheep with short and long wool.
It has the following indications
Control of lice in short wool (2-6 weeks after shearing) by plunge or shower dipping application
Control of lice in long wool (6 weeks to 12 months after shearing) by hand jetting application
Treatment of existing blowfly strike on sheep
Prevention of blowfly strike for 4-6 weeks with jetting application in long wool sheep
Protection from blowfly strike for a minimum of 8 days following treatment of mulesing or other wounds of sheep
When used on sheep with less than 6 weeks wool a reduced period of protection against blowfly strike may result.
A shorter protection period can be expected in lambs and coarse wool (meat breed) sheep.

Recommendations for lice control
It is recommended that a thorough muster be conducted so that no untreated sheep remain.
Boundary fences should be checked to ensure animals are contained and stray sheep are excluded.
Treated sheep must be kept separate from lice infested sheep or sheep of unknown lice status.
For effective control, every sheep on the property should be treated at the same time.
Avoid split shearing.
Avoid treating ewes within six weeks of the commencement of lambing.
Sheep that require a long wool treatment should be retreated with an off-shears or short wool product at the next shearing.
