Nucidol 200 EC is very effective for the control of ECTOPARASITES (lice, buffalo fly, mange, lice, ticks and fleas) on cattle, pigs, goats, dogs, and in animal sheds.
Up to a concentration of 0.2% active ingredient, no visible signs of intoxication were observed when cattle and sheep were sprayed or dipped respectively. A slight reversible inhibition of cholinesterase activity was determined at 0.2% and increasingly at higher concentrations. Salivation, a visible sign of this specific type of reversible intoxication was noticed in cattle at 0.4% and higher concentrations. Thus, Neocidol is well-tolerated by cattle and sheep when applied as recommended in a dosage range from 0.03% up to 0.1% of active ingredient.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE
Timing and frequency depend on parasite, climatic conditions and degree of infestation. For mange mites, 2 or 3 treatments during the life-cycle of the pest and treatment of the animal houses may be necessary for thorough control. It is essential to maintain dip concentration by replenishing when dip volume has dropped by 10%. Animals must be completely immersed at least once. Do not dip sheep with less than 2 weeks wool growth. Use sheep dip wash only on day of preparation, then empty completely and clean dip thoroughly to avoid build-up of bacteria causing post dipping lameness.
