Simply pour it along the backline as per the directions. The insects will come in contact with Shield as the naturally migrate around the body. The dosage may be divided to target specific areas that are more prone to bites.
SHIELD controls the following biting insects:-
Domestic & Bush Flies - Stable Fly - Biting Midges - Buffalo Fly - Mosquitoes
For the control of Queensland Itch, treatment should start at the beginning of the season by applying once weekly (or more frequently as required – no more than twice weekly).
A few horses, particularly those of the fine-skinned Arab type, may react when treated with SHIELDfor the first time. In these cases, a small patch test is recommended as per the directions.
The efficacy of SHIELD may be influenced by rain and activities such as rugging, brushing or washing. For best results allow 12-24 hours for SHIELD to dry before exposing your horse to these activities.
