How to apply SWAT as a “wipe-on”.

EASY “Once-a-Week-Protection”.

  • For the “FIRST’’ application with a mitt, cloth or towel, apply twice the dosage.
  • This “charges’’ the applicator and allows for the absorption of Swat into the applicator material.
  • Application is best used while wearing a disposable rubber glove.
  • The best method is to apply Swat as a whole body-wipe.
  • Apply half the dose(i.e. 15mL for a large horse) along one side.
  • Wipe along the neck and withers to the tail head.
  • Then apply to the front and hind leg.
  • Apply the remaining product over the rest of the body (sides, shoulder and belly) including the face (being careful not to get the product in their eyes).
  • Apply the second half dosage on the other side in a similar manner.
  • Store your applicator in a zip-seal bag for future use.

Pay special attention to where the flies congregate.

  • For Buffalo flies – wipe sides, shoulders and belly.
  • For Sandflies and Qld Itch – wipe neck, withers and around tail head.
  • For Stable Flies – wipe legs, shoulders and belly.
SIZES:   250mL;    500mL

Okay for replacement for Brute

I wanted some Brute for my shetland who is worried by midges. Everyone was out of sock of Brute so I got some Swat.
It does reduce the insects on the pony but doesn’t last or seem quite as effective as Brute.
Good product but will stick with Brute if I can get it.
