F10 Germicidal Wound Spray with Insecticide

F10 Germicidal Wound Spray with Insecticide combines F10 Antiseptic Solution with the added insecticidal activity of Cypermethrin (0.25%) and Piperonyl Butoxide (1.25%). This produces a ready-to-use topical spray which is active against bacteria and fungi for wound treatment, with the added capabilities of repelling flies and preventing or eliminating infestations due to fly-strike (myiasis). There is a 100% residual action after 5 days.

Where the risk of fly-strike is high, following diarrhoea or urinary incontinence for example, use the F10 Germicidal Wound Spray with Insecticide as a preventative control measure.

See the information below and our fly-strike page for more information on using F10 for prevention of fly-strike.

It is licensed under the Exemption for Small Pet Animals (see below).

Available in 100ml and 500ml spray bottles.
