Crovect is it effective?

It's very effective at giving me a bloody headache. Don't apply it stood in the race wearing shorts...
Dad was spraying ectofly about a few weeks ago, made me feel rough for a couple of days

I used crovect a few weeks ago, and had three struck lambs 48 hrs after, but touch wood, nothing since. I used the proper method and the spray gun.

Did all our lambs with it ten days ago, had them in again a week later and one had had maggots between but not many so it must have been struck just after application and it stopped them getting hold properly.

Crovect is fine for short withdrawal and shorter cover but it's cheaper and better to apply Clik once than Crovect twice. Unless ticks or lice are a problem obviously.
we were looking for something for fly strike with a short withdrawal, we'll have a good few ready to go at weaning in a couple of weeks time. We really should have done them with clik long ago but it didn't happen, I noticed a lamb struck on Sunday so action needed to be taken. My father returned from the vets with crovect, this led to the question since we'd never used it before.
