Why Choose Amitik Ec?

Easy to use spray: Amitik EC mixes readily with water. It is suitable for use in spray races and for hand spraying as it does not settle. For dipping applications Amitik WP is recommended.

Contains Amitraz: Amitik EC contains amitraz, a highly effective acaricide that controls susceptible ticks on cattle (including those that are resistant to synthetic pyrethroids and organophosphates) and mange mites on pigs. Unlike many other products used for tick control, Amitik kills all stages of the tick and the ticks detach quickly after treatment. This can reduce the time required for holding cattle in yards before movement, and encourages rapid healing of the attachment site. Cattle are normally clear of ticks within 3-4 days of treatment. Unlike some other products such as the ML pourons and injections, amitraz has no activity against internal parasites, so use of Amitik EC for tick control will not inadvertently select for chemical resistance in worm populations.

Ideal pre-clearing treatment: Amitik EC is ideal for use as a preliminary treatment prior to presenting cattle for inspection at the Queensland tick line (as required by law) because it kills all stages of the tick and ticks detach quickly following treatment. This reduces the length of time required to hold cattle in a tick-free environment prior to movement and simplifies the management procedures required to minimise the chance of ticks being detected on the cattle during inspection and the additional holding times and costs that are incurred as a result.

Nil meat withholding period: The nil meat withholding period of Amitik EC provides flexibility to take advantage of marketing opportunities. It allows animals to be clear of susceptible ticks prior to sending them to saleyards (as required by law) quickly and without any resulting withholding issues. Amitik EC can also be used at short intervals to avoid the death of animals, particularly calves, where the paralysis tick pressure is high without generating residue problems.

Ideal for use in dairy cattle: Amitik EC has a nil milk withholding period, giving dairy farmers the flexibility to treat the milking herd when it is required. The use of an effective spray can also avoid the teat damage that can result from the use of a plunge dip.

Pack Sizes: 2-Litre

Registrant: Intervet Australia PTY LTD (APVMA #: 45044)

Dose Rate & Application:

Hand Spraying: The dilution for hand spraying is 400mL per 200L water for cattle or 40mL per 10L water for pigs. Initial charging for spray races is 400mL per 200L water.

Reinforcing Spray Races: each time the sump drops 200L, add 250mL of Amitik EC without adding water and continue spraying. Repeat reinforcement until no more wash can be pumped out.

Topping Up: use dilution for initial charging (400mL per 200L water). If spray wash is to be retained in the sump, it must be stabilised using hydrated lime (80% purity) at the rate of 2kg/200L of spray wash.

How to Use Amitik Ec

Spray Race: 

  • The appropriate amount of Amitik EC should be added to a bucket and mixed thoroughly with water before being added to the reservoir.
  • The reservoir should then be filled to the total volume required. Spray-wash in the sump must be stirred thoroughly at the commencement of each spraying session and again if there is a break of more than half an hour during spraying.
  • Reinforce the spray-wash regularly (add 250mL of Amitik EC without any water every 200L drop in volume) and top up at the initial charging rate if required.
  • Stabilisation is not required when all spray-wash is used within 24 hours, but stabilization with hydrated lime is required when spray-wash is retained for later use.

Hand Spray: 

  • Ensure all parts of the animal are thoroughly wet, especially belly, inside legs and ears (most important for pigs).
  • Animals should be restrained in a crush for spraying.
  • A pump capable of delivering a coarse spray should be used.
  • Knapsack sprays are not recommended.
  • A fresh spray must be made up for each day’s treatment.
  • Clean out the spray reservoir at the end of each day and discard any remaining wash.
