Extinosad Dipping/Jetting/Dressing

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

Critical comments

  1. When used on sheep with less than 6 weeks wool a reduced period of protection against blowfly strike may result.
  2. 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.
