How to use Dectospot 

Apply a single dose with the special dispenser pack or the Dectospot Applicator on one spot on the mid-line of the back at the shoulders, as directed on dispenser or applicator gun pack.

Lice on cattle: One application will generally eradicate all lice within 4 - 5 weeks during which time lice hatch from the eggs and are killed. It may be necessary on rare occasions to re-treat an animal 6 - 8 weeks later.

Flies on cattle: Good control can be expected for 4 - 8 weeks where horn flies dominate. Treatment for fly control should not be repeated within four weeks.

Ticks on sheep and lambs: Application will control ticks for up to 6 weeks after treatment.

Keds and lice on sheep, and lice on lambs: Application will reduce the incidence of a biting louse or ked infestation over a 4 - 6 week period after treatment. N.B. For control of ticks, keds and lice on sheep, the fleece should be parted and the spot on applied to the skin of the animal.

When using the Dectospot applicator, application to the skin can be achieved by inserting the T bar to separate the fleece and penetrate down to the skin level before squeezing the applicator handle. Apply directly to the maggot-infected area as soon as the fly strike is seen. One application will ensure blowfly larvae are killed in a short time. In the case of more advanced strike lesions, clipping out of stained wool before treatment is advisable.​
