“DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT ON HORSES INTENDED FOR HUMAN FOOD”

Product Description

It requires very small amounts of War Paint® to kill and repel flies. Small amounts of War Paint® are placed on the horse only where flies tend to congregate.

War Paint®, when applied to the horse, attaches to the hair of the horse and slowly releases the insecticide over a period of weeks. Full body fly control does not usually occur until 1 to 2 days after the application. The reason for this is it takes awhile for the formulation to release the insecticide onto the horse’s hair.

Because War Paint® is not only an insecticide, but also an effective repellent, you will notice that in the case of face fly activity, the repellent activity of the product will be apparent within hours if not immediately after application. After a period of one to two weeks, as the insecticide is released onto the horse’s hair, you will find that War Paint® becomes powdery and will fall off the horse’s hair leaving no adverse effects on the horse’s appearance.

Directions For Use

IT IS A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW TO USE THIS PRODUCT IN MANNER INCONSISTENT WITH ITS LABELING. DO NOT APPLY TO A WET ANIMAL SINCE THE PRODUCT WILL NOT ADHERE TO MOIST SURFACES.

FULL BODY FLY CONTROL: Adult horses: For the treatment of pastured horses, it is recommended that a full application of War Paint® be applied as a single treatment. This should provide adequate fly control for approximately one week on pastured horses.

Apply one (1) gram under each eye, two (2) grams on withers and two (2) grams on each leg below the hock or knee - 12 grams total as a single treatment. DO NOT REPEAT TREATMENT FOR SEVEN (7) DAYS. See application techniques and illustrations.

Application Techniques

FACE FLIES: Turn the applicator wheel 1/8 of a turn to place one (1) gram of War Paint® under the eye along the lower lid, close to the lid margin. Do not apply directly into the eye. Make a 1-inch wide stripe along the entire lower lid from corner to corner. For maximum Face Fly control, it is very important to place the product around the inside corner of the eye where the top and bottom lids meet. This is the area where tearing occurs due to fly irritation and also where Face Flies congregate to feed. Repeat the application to the other eye. A 1-inch wide stripe under each eye will apply 2 grams of War Paint® to the face.

HORN FLIES, BLACK FLIES AND HORSE FLIES: Turn the applicator wheel 1/4 of a turn to place 2 grams of War Paint® on top of the applicator. Then apply a 1x4-inch stripe under the mane of the horse on the withers. Place the product far enough up the withers so the product will not be under the saddle or blanket if the horse is ridden.

STABLE FLIES AND BOT FLIES: Apply a 1x4-inch stripe to each leg. Turn the applicator wheel 1/4 turn to place 2 grams of War Paint® on the top of the applicator. When applying War Paint® to the legs of a horse, apply the material to the front of the horse’s leg. Start at a place on the front of the leg four inches below the knee or the hock. Touch the applicator to the spot to be treated. Move the applicator in the narrow direction up the horse’s leg four inches toward the knee or hock, then stop and with the applicator top, smooth out to a 1-inch wide by 4-inch long stripe on each leg.

BOT FLIES: To kill and repel bot flies during the egg laying season, War Paint® should be applied over the bot eggs already on the horse. A four-inch by one-inch wide stripe should be painted over the area where the bot eggs exist. This should be done instead of applying War Paint® to the front of the leg since the application will also control stable flies, and Bot Flies usually lay their eggs on the sides of the horse’s legs.

FOALS: The same technique for applying War Paint® can be used on foals, except only 1/2 of the adult amount should be used, 6 grams. Since the foals’ eyes are smaller than adult horses, a one-inch wide stripe under each eye of a foal will apply only 1/2 gram of War Paint® under each eye. When applying War Paint® to a foal’s withers and legs, make the strip only 1-inch by 2-inches long instead of the 4-inch long stripe used on adult horses. This will insure that a foal will receive one-half of the adult horse dose, one gram on each leg. Remember, a 1/8 turn of the applicator wheel will place one gram of War Paint® on the top of the applicator.

LOCAL FLY CONTROL: For horses that are to be ridden and handled frequently, lesser amounts of War Paint® applied more frequently are a better choice. Lesser amounts of War Paint® applied discreetly and prudently to the horse can provide effective local fly control for several days to a week. If this technique is used, remember not to apply more than 12 grams of War Paint® to a horse in any 7-day period. See application technique and illustrations.

Precautions For Use

Do not apply to the hair of a wet animal since the product will not adhere to moist surfaces. War Paint®, once applied to the hair of the horse, cannot be wiped off. Therefore, it should not be applied within one to two weeks of an anticipated show even in which the presence of small amounts of War Paint® on the horse’s hair would have an adverse effect on the horse’s appearance. As with any product, certain horses may be sensitive to one of the ingredients in War Paint® and develop some local irritation. If irritation occurs, discontinue use. If irritation persists, consult your veterinarian.
