Clik/Rain...
« on: July 15, 2012, 10:26:31 am »
We've sprayed our 3 ram lambs with Clik but I left the 2 shearlings as they were sheared in June and have only just started to regrow any fleece.


We've had this continuous rain here in Worcestershire and are currently on flood alert with more rain due, although its actually sunny currently  :fc:


would heavy rain just wash newly applied Clik off?  I've been reluctant to put it on for this to happen..?
thanks

Dunno about Clik, Lisa - you would certainly not rely on Crovect applied in such conditons.

I presume there aren't so many flies about if the rain is pretty much continuous?  In which case is it doing any harm to wait for the weather to pick up?

Just found these details
Do not treat wet animals but can be used on dry or damp.
Has been developed to be as rainfast as possible but sheep should be treated with a forecast period of dry weather for a few hours after application.

That's what I've been thinking. Good to hear the same from you as it makes sense really.
THanks both x

So far, we've found very few flies about as it's been cool as well as wet - nice and sunny today but a stiffish breeze, and no flies even around the horses. Fingers crossed for good enough conditions for you to Clik.
Where are we going - and why am I in this handcart?

We had flystrike on our ewes when they were sheared and now have a lamb with flystrike. This weather is awful with the rain followed by sun. Horrid!

Our worst year for fly strike yet. Just had a small strike on a  Clikd wether.  Didn't develop into much but we are only four weeks into the sixteen.  Watching the rest like hawks.
Being certain just means you haven't got all the facts

I just had my Lleyns sheared - not a sign of strike, only to find one of my Wilts rams had been struck in the base of his horns, really nasty because it had gone unnoticed back there.... Its warm and wet - never had a wilts struck like this before...horrid.
