Elanco Click Spray on 5 litre
Put the worry of blowfly strike behind you
CLiK™ Spray-On has long been the mainstay fly control product for Australian sheep producers, providing season long protection against fly strike for 18-24 weeks. CLiK™ Spray-On has the unique added benefit of Rain Lock™, the result of patented formulation technology that allows the active to resist wash out offering peace of mind for sheep producers, even in the face of wet weather.*
CLiK™ Spray-On is registered for the protection of sheep, either off-shears or with any length wool, against fly strike for 18 to 24 weeks. It is also registered for the protection of mulesing and marking wounds on sheep against fly strike during the wound healing process. CLiK™ offers the following key benefits:
- Season long protection against flystrike for 18-24 weeks on all breeds of sheep with any length wool
- Potent insect growth regulator that breaks the life cycle of the blowfly before any damage occurs
- Rain Lock™ formulation technology that enables CLiK™ to bind strongly to wool fibres to resist washout
- Convenient ready to use spray on formulation
The Hidden Costs of Flystrike
The prevention and control of blowfly strike caused by Lucilia cuprina is a vital component of sheep husbandry in Australia. Flystrike is estimated to cost the Australian sheep industry a reported $173 million per annum.1 Historically, it has been estimated that some 3 million sheep died each year as a consequence of flystrike.2 While mortality is a significant cost and worry for sheep producers; there are other less obvious impacts of flystrike. These include reduced sheep fertility, lost meat and wool production, damage to skins, and the cost of chemicals and labour for treating struck sheep. Strategic preventative treatment of sheep early in the season has been proven to reduce fly population build-up3 and consequently reduce the impact of blowfly strike on productivity. CLiK™ is ideally suited for this purpose.4
