For lice control it is best practice to apply Magnum off-shears (within 24 hours after shearing). Can be used on strong wool type breeds with up to 3 months wool growth; must be used off-shears on fine-wool breeds.
For fly control ensure sufficient product is applied to cover the area to be protected. Existing blowfly strike at the time of application, or after the period of protection, must be treated with a conventional blowfly dressing. Product must be applied in a wide continuous strip.

Short wool vs long wool?
When it comes to long woolled sheep, it can be difficult to control lice. Pour-ons for lice e.g., Wipeout, Magnum and Vanquish; achieve best results when applied to the fleece within 24 hours after shearing.
