POULTRY-SHIELD CONTROLS INSECTS BY REMOVING THEIR NATURAL OILS
THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT CONTAIN POISON
Poultry-Shield is a development of a common technology employing both Quaternary ammonium compounds with a blend of cationic, amphoteric and non-ionic surface active agents and water conditioners with additional poly(hexamethylenebiguanide) hydrochloride.). This gives Poultry-Shield an extensive spectrum of biocidal activity in a non-specific mode of action which prevents the problems associated with bacterial resistance. Poultry – Shield exhibits stability over a wide range of pH ensuring compatibility with other stages of farm cleanout procedures. Poultry-Shields most important property lies in its insecticidal activity where kill levels of 100% can be achieved on poultry red mite (Dermanyssus gallinae)1and their eggs without the use of traditional insecticidal compounds such as organo-phosphates and organo-chlorines. The application of Poultry-Shield on red mite can lead to erradication, improved bird performance and lower mortality.
Significantly safer than alternative organo- compounds for both humans and birds, with low toxicity. .
Significantly safer than dusting products , application actually reduces dust levels in the poultry house.
No special equipment required other than normal workwear and adequate ventilation.
Non-corrosive, non-irratant in the perscribed diluted form
Full details can be found in the product Health and Safety Data Sheets.
Available in 4 x 5 litre case, 20ltr & 200ltr drums and in 1000 litre IBC’s
Containers should remain closed in storage, at ambient temperatures in a dry environment.
Instructions For Use
Stage 1, Before de-population of the unit, spray liberally with a 10% solution of Poultry-Shield to equipment and nesting areas. (This also gives a comfortable environment when removing equipment manually)
Stage 2, Remove all equipment from the unit (free-range) and all plastic slats, as interlocking joints can harbour eggs and immature mites.
Stage 3, The unit and equipment must be washed to a clinical standard removing all litter and manure from every area. Thus removing as many mites as possible.
Stage 4, Once the new crop of birds are in and the unit temperature is as required, spray with a 10% solution of Poultry-Shield as mites will become very active especially if the unit has been empty for a long period of time.
Stage 5, Routine Spraying with a 10% solution must be done every 4-6 weeks without fail, even if mites are not visible.
Poultry-Shield is clear colourless aqueous blend of cationic, amphoteric and non-ionic surface active agents and water conditioners with quaternary ammonium compounds, polybiguanide hydrochloride and primary fatty alcohol exthoxylate. Boiling point of 1000C, Specific gravity of 1.03, freezing point of 00C and a pH of 12.0 to 12.8. Poultry-Shield is generally stable over a wide range of temperatures. Can be inactivated by soap and surface active agents (if in doubt contact the manufacturer).
