DRI-KIL is a dry powder effective against certain insects common to farm livestock. It can be used for treating bedding and is effective when dusted into cracks and crevices of woodwork.

Hog Lice

During periods of the year when hogs are bedded down, mix DRI-KIL with the bedding at the rate of 1 kg per 1 sq. meter of floor space. After the hogs have quieted down for the night and are lying in the bedding, sprinkle DRI-KIL lightly over them. Repeat this procedure until the lice are effectively exterminated. When the hogs are not bedded apply DRI-KIL with a sifter can to their bodies. A small quantity in the hand can be quickly rubbed between the legs and on the stomachs of the hogs.

Cattle And Horse Lice

Dust DRI-KIL thoroughly over the animals with sifter can. Rub in to reach the skin. Repeat treatment in 2-3 weeks if necessary.

Sheep Keds (ticks)

Dust DRI-KIL into the fleece, part the wool with the fingers, and then thoroughly distribute the powder with the hands, making sure that the powder comes into direct contact with the skin. Repeat if necessary.

Poultry Lice

- Dust birds thoroughly, particularly around the vents, and work powder into the feathers. Mix DRI-KIL with the nest fill. Repeat if necessary.
