Directions for Use

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Restraint

DO NOT USE on sheep which are producing or may in the future produce milk or milk products for human consumption.

 

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE.

Di-Fly SPRAY-ON is applied as a low-volume treatment on to areas where protection is required. When applying Di-Fly SPRAY-ON, the nozzle of the applicator gun should be high enough above the fleece (approximately 15-25 cm), to achieve a 15cm wide band at each pass for protection of body strike. For treatment of mulesing wounds, the band must be wide enough to cover the wound and 25 mm onto the surrounding wool.

DO NOT apply during gusty or windy weather as spray drift may reduce the period of protection. It is good agricultural practice for mulesing/marking to be carried out at times of minimal fly activity. Reduced efficacy may occur in sheep affected with dermatophilosis.

General Directions

Di-Fly SPRAY-ON provides season long protection to sheep against body, breech and poll strike and may be used either off-shears or in sheep with any length wool.

Di-Fly SPRAY-ON also protects mulesing and marking wounds on lambs against fly strike during the wound healing process. The dose volume is determined by the weight of sheep being treated. Apply Di-Fly SPRAY-ON according to the diagrams and tables in the Directions for use. DO NOT DILUTE. Do not mix with any other product. Apply directly from container or an appropriate back pack using SPRAY-ON applicator gun recommended by the supplier. Di-Fly SPRAY-ON may be applied to all breeds of sheep to obtain protection against fly-strike.

Significant soiling with dags, mud, dust or urine may reduce efficacy. Where significant dags are present, a light crutching is indicated prior to treatment. Protection period may be reduced if sheep scour heavily following application.
