Amitik WP Cattle Dip and Spray (Amitraz) AMITIK-WP Coopers Animal Health

Description

Amitik WP Cattle Dip and Spray 

Active Ingredient: Amitraz @ 500g/kg

Similar or comparable to Dipa Tik Cattle Dip And Spray (Landmark)

Amitik WP Cattle Dip And Spray is used to control ticks, including organophosphate and synthetic pyrethroid resistant strains, on cattle in NSW and QLD and cattle ticks on sheep, goats, deer and certain circus animals in NSW only.

Amitraz is a non-systemic acaricide and insecticide. It has been found to have an insect-repellent effect and works as an insecticide and a pesticide synergist.  Amitraz leads to overexcitation and, consequently, paralysis and death in insects, including Ticks. Because amitraz is less harmful to mammals, amitraz is known as an insecticide against tick infestations.

Indications:

Amitik WP Cattle Dip And Spray is effective for the control of the following external parasites in Cattle (NSW, QLD and NT only).

  • Cattle Tick – Boophilus microplus
  • NZ Cattle Tick – Haemaphysalis longicornis
  • Paralysis Tick – Ixodes holocyclus

Amitik WP Cattle Dip And Spray is effective for the control of the following external parasites in Sheep, Goats, Deer and certain Circus Animals (NSW only).

  • Cattle tick – Boophilus microplus

When to Use Amitik Wp Cattle Dip and Spray;

  • At Regular Intervals.
    • Amitik should be used strategically at regular intervals throughout the tick season to break the life cycle of the cattle tick.
    • In high tick pressure situations, this is achieved by treating at 19-21 day intervals (the tick cycle from attachment to full engorgement takes 21 days), but this interval may be extended where tick pressure is not high.
    • For areas with high paralysis tick pressure, treatment at 7-10 day intervals may be required to prevent deaths, particularly in calves.
  • Before Moving Cattle.
    • Amitik should be used before moving cattle into tick-free areas, onto ‘clean’ paddocks or into saleyards. (contact the QLD DPI to obtain the latest advice on procedures for crossing the tick line)
  • Treatment Of Visible Infestations.
    • Amitik WP can treat visible tick infestations, particularly on cattle most susceptible to tick impacts (young stock and lactating cows).

Directions Of Use

Sachet Instructions:

  • Open outer sachet.
  • To dissolve in water, simply tip the inner soluble pack directly into the bucket and stir.

Initial Charge, Mixing and Stabilising

  • For each 1,000L of water in the dip or sump, empty 500g Amitik WP into a bucket containing water and stir into a smooth, creamy suspension.
  • Pour into dip/sump, then rinse bucket, adding rinsing to dip/sump.
  • Do not retain opened Amitik WP or Lime Stabiliser packs for later use.
  • Use each pack’s contents immediately after opening since Amitik WP and Lime Stabiliser deteriorate in opened packs.
  • Any unused, unstabilised dip wash should be discarded if not used within 24 hours. It should not be retained for later use unless stabilised first.
  • Stabilise by mixing the contents of one pack (10kg) of Lime Stabiliser* per 1,000L of water in the dip or sump, taking care to distribute the stabiliser along the surface of the dip. *Hydrated (slaked) lime (80% purity) can be used for the purpose of stabilising.

Application:

Plunge Dip

For each 1,000L of water in the dip, add one pack (500g) of Amitik WP as an initial charge. Stabilisation (10kg Hydrated Lime stabilizer per 1,000L of dip wash) is always required. If the dip has not been used for two months, add a 10kg bag of lime for every 2,000L in the dip. When the dip level has fallen by 700L, add 700L of water and 500g Amitik WP plus 10kg Lime Stabiliser. Mix as above. It is not advisable to allow the dip to fall by more than 700L from its original level. It is essential that the dip be stirred at the start of each day’s dipping and again if more than half an hour between dipping. Use at least 30 head of cattle through the dip and return these to the main mob for re-dipping. If it is some time since the dip has been used, adjust the dip to make up for evaporation or flooding

Spray Race

Amitik WP can be used in spray races; however, Amitraz EC is recommended as it mixes fully with water and does not settle quickly. Charge with 500g of Amitik WP per 1,000L, mixing as above. Stabilisation (10kg Lime Stabiliser per 1,000L) is required when the unused dip is retained for later use (more than 24 hours of initial charge). Each time the level of spray wash in the sump drops by more than 300L, reinforce by adding 100g Amitik WP and continue spraying. Do NOT add water. Do NOT add Lime Stabiliser. Continue spraying until no more wash can be pumped out. When the wash is polluted, clean out the sump before charging. If the spray wash is not stabilised, it is important that all spray wash remaining in the sump be pumped out before recharging if it has stood for more than 24 hours. Once the suspension has been added to the sump, stir thoroughly using the pump or manually with a paddle. Spray wash in the sump must be stirred thoroughly at the commencement of each spraying session and again if there is a break of more than half an hour during spraying.

    The acidity level of water has the largest effect on how Amitik WP Cattle Dip and Spray works. Water that is acidic (1-6 pH) needs hydrated lime added as a buffer. If the water is neutral (7 pH) or alkaline (8-14 pH), no action is required.

    Amitik WP Cattle Dip and Spray is contraindicated (should not be used) for use on horses, equines, felines or Chihuahua dogs.  None of the products containing Amitraz are registered for use on horses.

    For tick control on horses, we recommend either Bayticol Dip and Spray (http://bit.ly/Bayticol-Dip-Spray) or Barricade ‘S’ Cattle Dip and Spray (http://bit.ly/Barricade-S-Dip-Spray)
