Lice’n’Simple pour-on Equine Lousicide is an easy-to-apply, safe & effective treatment for the control of biting lice (Werneckiella (Bovicola) equi) on horses. It controls biting lice by preventing the development of immature lice in the coat and those which hatch from eggs.
Lice’N’Simple Pour-on Equine Lousicide is an insect growth regulator (IGR), not a knock-down insecticide. It produces a rapid decline in lice numbers with trial data demonstrating lice control by 7 weeks post treatment. Rainfastness on horses has not been demonstrated.
Direction for use:
Precaution: do not use on horses with existing dermatitis or on broken skin.
All horses in contact with each other should be treated. Dose each animal according to bodyweight. Do not under dose. Apply to a dry coat. Do not hose down the horse for at least 72 hours after treatment. Using the measuring cup provided, apply Lice’n’Simple Pour-on Equine Lousicide in a single continuous strip down the middle of the backline from the poll to the highest point of the rump. In particular, ensure good coverage to the roots of the mane hair. After use, clean measuring cup in warm soapy water. Ensure new or cleaned rugs are used on the animal after treatment to avoid reintroduction of lice.
The product can be detrimental to certain plastics, paints and surface finishes. Avoid contact with such surfaces.
