Description

Spurt Off-Shears Pour-On Sheep Lice Control

Active Ingredient: Cypermethrin @ 25g/L

Spurt Off-Shears Pour-On controls pyrethroid-susceptible strains of body lice on off-sheers sheep and lambs. Spurt is a pour-on formulation for topical use containing 25g/L cypermethrin, a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide and a scourable dye.  Spurt can be applied to shorn sheep up to 24 hours off shears, and control is achieved in 5-6 weeks.

What pests does Spurt Off-Shears Pour-On control in Sheep and Lambs;

  • Control of biting lice (Bovicola ovis) in sheep off-shears

Tips for using Spurt Off-Shears Pour-On:

  • Spurt Pour-On is applied undiluted.
  • It must not be stored in any container other than the original, including overnight. Do not leave Spurt Off-Shears Pour-On containers uncovered or in direct sunlight.
  • It is critical that sheep be cleanly shorn without residual clumps or tufts of wool, and Spurt must be applied less than 24 hours after shearing to ensure effectiveness.
  • Correct application is critical, and it should not be applied as a single spot or to wet sheep.
  • Light to moderate rainfall soon after application should not reduce efficacy.
  • A clean muster and single shearing with immediate correct treatment of every animal is ideal for effectively controlling lice.
  • Lambs at foot cannot be treated, and therefore it is recommended that ewes due to lamb within 6 weeks or ewes with lambs at foot should not be treated with Spurt Off-Shears Pour-On.
  • If a split shearing is inevitable, it is critical that treated and untreated sheep be kept separate.
  • The repeated use of any synthetic pyrethroid is likely to result in the emergence of resistance in sheep lice.
  • It is therefore recommended to regularly alternate dips treatments.
  • Resistance to synthetic pyrethroids is present in some populations of sheep lice, and treatment failures may be due to resistant lice being present.
  • Milking Sheep: Do not use in sheep producing milk for human consumption

Spurt Off-Shears Pour-On contains Cypermethrin. Cypermethrin is a pyrethroid insecticide, a synthetic chemical similar to the pyrethrins in pyrethrum extract (which comes from the chrysanthemum plant). Pyrethroids, including cypermethrin, were designed to be effective longer than pyrethrins. Cypermethrin kills insects that eat or come into contact with it. Cypermethrin works by quickly affecting the insect’s central nervous system.

Administration:

  • Dose the mob to the heaviest animal by live weight in each group (ewes, wethers, rams and lambs).
  • Do not underdose. 
  • A representative sample of animals should be weighed before treatment, either with scales or weigh band. 
  • Where there is a large variation in size within the group, dose rates should be based on the label directions for each weight range. 
  • Drafting into two or more lines may be appropriate to avoid excessive overdosing.

For maximum benefit and efficiency, pour-on’s need to be applied correctly following their instructions. 

  1. Before the start of shearing, check your Spurt applicator for correct operation and calibration. 
  2. Apply Spurt to shorn sheep up to 24 hours off shears using the correct and full dose. Control is achieved in 5-6 weeks. 
  3. Apply the Spurt dose as a single backline strip (40mm to 60mm) along the centre of the back.  Start at the shoulder and finish at the rump (20 cm to 40 cm). 
  4. Ensure all shorn, treated sheep go into a cleanly mustered paddock and are not mixed with untreated sheep.
  • Applied correctly, Spurt puts a full-strength dose of lousicide on every sheep and works well even under such adverse conditions as wet weather or wet sheep.
  • A scourable blue marker dye is included in the product for specific identification of treated animals.
