i. TICKS

Application – Only for use by spraying (hand spraying or spray races).

Initial dilution rate – 1 ℓ Coopers Triatix® 12,5%  per 500 ℓ water. Pre-mix the required amount of Coopers Triatix® 12,5% with a suitable amount of water in a container. Once mixed thoroughly, add to the measured bulk water in the spray sump and stir thoroughly.

Replenishment – It is recommended that not more than 500 head of cattle be sprayed in the spray race at one time, especially where fouling is a problem. If however, this figure is exceeded, boosting at a rate of 100 mℓ of Coopers Triatix® 12,5% per 100 head, commencing at 500 head, can be undertaken to maintain a satisfactory deposit of active ingredient especially where tick-borne diseases are a problem.
Intensive tick control is provided by use as directed at weekly intervals.
All animals should be treated and interruption of the programme should be avoided as they will then, if not vaccinated, be susceptible to various tick-borne diseases.
Under circumstances of low tick challenge, it may be used, at the user’s discretion, at intervals greater than 7 days. In these circumstances, users are advised to make use of relevant vaccines to obtain optimal protection of their cattle against prevalent tick-borne diseases.

ii. MANGE

Application, initial dilution rate and replenishment -See directions for use for ticks.
