Directions & Dosage
When used in dairy barns or facilities: Close milk bulk tank lids to prevent contamination by the product. Remove or cover milking utensils before application. Wash teats of animals before milking. Use of handheld power duster equipment is prohibited. BEEF & DAIRY CATTLE Horn Flies, Lice, Face Flies: Place contents of this package in any commercially available dust bag, suspend bags in areas frequented by cattle or in gateways or lanes through which the animals pass daily for water, feed or minerals. Bags may also be suspended in loafing sheds or in front of protected mineral feeders. For lactating dairy cows, bags may be suspended in the exit through which cows leave the milking barn. In all cases, the bags should be adjusted so that the bottom of the bag will hang four to six inches below the topline of the cattle. For reduction of face flies, the bags must be located so the animals will be forced to use them daily and hung at a height to insure that the faces of the cattle will be dusted. Horn Flies, Lice Direct Application: Apply 2.0 ounces of dust per animal by shaker can over the head, neck, shoulders, back and tailhead. Repeat as necessary. Lice on Swine Direct Application: Apply not more than 1 oz.* (3 level tablespoons) per head as a uniform coat to the head, shoulders and back by use of a shaker can. Repeat as necessary, but not more often than once every ten days. In severe infestations, both individual animals and the bedding may be treated as directed above. Do not ship animals for slaughter within 5 days of last treatment.*NOTE: 1 oz. of this material equals approximately three level tablespoonfuls.
