ROTATION TREATMENT:


The use of EUREKA GOLD ® as a rotational product in sheep lice control program, between effective chemical groups, helps to reduce rate of resistance development.

EUREKA GOLD ® allows an organosphate (OP) to be introduced into the rotational treatment program without having to dip the sheep.
