INDICATIONS
A topical application spot treatment spray for wounds as an antiseptic and barrier to re-infection and to repel flies and eliminate infestation due to fly strike.

APPLICATION

In wide ranging field trials covering a wide variety of animal, bird and reptile species the product has demonstrated good healing and antimicrobial action while at the same time was shown to be effective against a variety of insects. Long residual effectiveness was also demonstrated across the disinfecting and insecticidal spectrums. The product is water soluble and can be rinsed clear with water.

ANTIMICROBIAL ACTION

The antimicrobial action of the product is based upon core actives of the F10 compound as used in other F10 antiseptic and disinfectant products. At the concentrations in this product, the efficacy achieved is

log’ reduction in microbial counts against gram positive and gram negative bacteria, as well as fungi, yeast and moulds. F10 has proven virucidal effectiveness against both enveloped and non-enveloped viruses.

INSECTICIDAL ACTION

The insecticidal action is based upon cypermethrin (a pyrethroid) and

aided by piperonyl butoxide. In the testing phases the indicator species used was Lucilia cuprina, a commonly occurring blow fly species. As soon as the larvae were sprayed they immediately began to migrate from the test site and within 30 minutes were dead. Other tests on L. cuprina eggs resulted in a 100% kill. The product was

equally effective against adult flies and showed a 77% kill in 15 minutes rising to 100% within 30 minutes. Cypermethrin is a broad spectrum insecticide and is effective against other insects, e.g. biting flies, fleas, mosquitoes, and ticks.

RESIDUAL ACTION

Residual action tests showed the product was 100% effective after 5 days. Extended field trials demonstrated that the residual action extended well beyond 2 weeks. The product is water soluble and should be re-applied if the animal has been washed or exposed to heavy rain.

TOXICOLOGY

These studies were carried out in accordance with the test requirements as specified by the EPA. All studies were subject to an independent GLP compliance audit.
