For the control of neonicotinoid susceptible sheep body lice in sheep off-sheers (within 7 days of shearing) and unshorn lambs up to 2 months of age.
POWERSHIELD contains Imidacloprid, a neonicotinoid insecticide that kills lice quickly by affecting their nervous system, resulting in insect paralysis and death. It works fast and has 100% knockdown efficacy against lice.
POWERSHIELD offers long lasting protection against re-infestation with four week residual activity for lice when applied within 24 hours off-shears. To prevent reinfection sheep must not be mixed with clean sheep for 6 weeks. POWERSHIELD is also rainfast and is effective on sheep that have been rained on before as well as after treatment.
POWERSHIELD can be applied with manual T-bar or power doser applicator. The entire dose is applied to sheep under 30 kg as a single broadband stripe from poll to tail butt. For sheep over 30 kg, apply half the dose as a broadband stripe either side of the midline from the mid neck to the butt of the tail. The stripes should be no further than 10 cm apart. Dose flexibility makes is convenient as it can be applied up to 7 days after shearing.
POWERSHIELD is bright blue in colour which makes the sheep treated be easily identified. During application, the blue colour of the product will help identify any animals that may have been missed when walking back up the race and these animals can now be treated. Also ensuring the right dose has been administered is vital at this point to achieve the optimum outcome.
