Grenade is an emulsifiable concentrate ectoparasiticide dip & spray for the control of ectoparasites on livestock. It is a clear, yellow liquid containing 5% w/v Cyhalothrin.

Indications

  • Grenade EC 5% is a broad-spectrum ectoparasiticide containing Cyhalothrin, a highly potent synthetic pyrethroid insecticide and acaricide of low mammalian toxicity.
  • Grenade EC 5% is effective against organophosphorus and amidine resistant strains of ticks.

Administration
Grenade EC 5% must be diluted with water before use and may be used in dips, spray races, hand sprayers and other spray devices. The capacity of all dip tanks, pumps and sprayers should be accurately calibrated.

Grenade EC 5% must be thoroughly mixed with the water in the dip tank, or spray sump, each time it is added. The dip must be thoroughly mixed after any break in dipping or spraying. This may be achieved in large tanks by dipping 20 animals which must then be re-dipped.The recommended dilution rates are as follows:

1. Dip tanks and/or Spray races:For control of Ticks, Flies and Lice in Cattle

  • Initial dilution:           1L of Grenade diluted in 1,000L of water.
