Clik !! application with rain showers due?
« on: June 11, 2011, 10:15:42 am »
Hi all

some advice from you please? I am due to apply clik to cover the rest of the season for flystrike (and as they have been sheared for 2-3 weeks and the fleece is growing back nicely), and we have got some showers due over the next week as we are all having some unsettled weather (pleased to say) it does say on the bottle not to apply in rain.  So if its clear weather and then rains afterwards an hour or 4 hours later will the clik be permantly held in the fleece? or will it come out of the fleece? would anyone  like to comment on any experiances please?

Depends on the severity ANDY ideally apply to dry wool, couple of hours drying it is rain proof but not for a heavy downpour
