Permoxin can be used as an insecticidal pyrethrin spray or rinse for the control of flies, ticks and biting insects. Aids in the control of Queensland Itch.
Composition Permethrin (25:75 cis:trans) 40 g/L.
Actions Third generation synthetic pyrethroid which acts on the neuromuscular system of flies and fleas. Pyrethroids are more photostable than natural pyrethrins. Permethrin (25:75) has the lowest level of dermal irritation and systemic toxicity of any of these third generation pyrethroids. Permethrin also has an insect repellent action giving treatment and control of insect bite allergies.
Indications Pyrethroid sensitive flies (Haematobia irritans exigua, Stomoxys calcitrans) and biting insects (Culicoides sp.) on horses; fleas (Ctenocephalides felis, Ct. canis) on dogs; flea allergy dermatitis (summer eczema) on dogs, Queensland itch on horses; ticks (Rhipicephalus sp.) and paralysis tick (Ixodes holocyclus) on dogs.
