CLiK® Pour-on, containing dicyclanil, offers unparalleled 1, no matter how severe the blowfly challenge. One application provides 16 weeks’ protection saving time, effort and labour.
- CLiK’s unique binds tightly to the grease in wool to give full body cover for a full 16 weeks. CLiK is at least 30 times more potent against blowfly than Vetrazin3.
The effectiveness of CLiK
- CLiK is a blowfly specific IGR (insect growth regulator) and has a narrow spectrum of activity. SCOPS (Sustainable Control of Parasites in Sheep) recommend the use of narrow spectrum products to minimise the risk of lice, tick or scab mite resistance developing.
CLiK for lambs
- Applied in spring CLiK protects the majority of lambs until marketing.
- Treating young lambs is the most cost-effective way to protect against blowfly strike
- 5L of CLiK treats 250 10-20kg lambs as opposed to 200 21-30kg lambs – that’s 20% more value.
- CLiK solves the problem of late blowfly challenge due to unpredictable weather.
- One treatment after shearing covers the majority of sheep until season end.
- CLiK can be applied to any length of wool so farmers can shear then treat shortly afterwards.
- CLiK provides more doses per pack than Vetrazin. A 5L pack of CLiK will treat 200 30kg lambs whereas a 5L pack of Vetrazin or Crovect will only treat 166.
Benefits over sheep dip
- Convenient - apply single handed wherever sheep are.
- Ready-to-use, no complicated dilution or mixing.
- No need for fixed equipment.
- No wastage or dipwash disposal regulations.
- The risk of environmental pollution is minimised unlike dipping, no Certificate of Competence required.
- CLiK is well tolerated by sheep and offers a high safety margin.
- CLiK is not designed to cure so treat animals before an anticipated fly challenge.
- CLiK is effective on all classes of sheep and all wool types.
- Dry or damp sheep can be treated with a forecast period of dry weather for a few hours after application;
- Do not treat wet animals.
- CLiK quickly binds to fleece and has been developed to be as rainfast as possible.
- Make sure to give the right dose for the weight of animal. Weigh a few of the heaviest animals in the group and treat all to this heaviest dose. If the spread of weights in the group is large, split into weight banded groups.
- Always use the proper Novartis .
Hold the gun 45cm away from the sheep. Make sure you deliver a minimum 10cm wide spray band. Ensure the spray falls evenly on each side of the backbone. Spray falling to one side only will result in loss of protection on the other side of the fleece.
To ensure an accurate spread of CLiK apply the total required dose one quarter at a time:
- ¼ of dose from mid-shoulders to middle of back
- ¼ of dose from middle of back to top of tail
- ¼ of dose to one side of animal’s tail and crutch
- ¼ of dose to other side of animal’s tail and crutch
Poor application techniques will result in reduced periods of protection.
CLiK is applied at 0.6-2ml (30-100mg dicyclanil)/kg bodyweight according to the datasheet recommendations.
0.8L, 2.2L, and 5L.
“We were moving dip and dipper here, there and everywhere and it wasn’t viable. We were paying staff to come and help to dip. Now with CLiK, I can do it all myself when I want.”
