1. Remove all animals from the pig house
Animals must not come into contact with ALZOGUR® at any time, and it is therefore imperative that all animals are cleared from the pig house prior to application. Ensure that pets such as cats or dogs are also kept out of the pig house while ALZOGUR® is being applied.
2. Thoroughly clean the pig house
Clean the pig house with water. Thoroughly clean slatted floors with a high-pressure cleaner to ensure that surfaces are entirely free from manure and feed residue. Break up surface crusts in slurry channels and drain liquid manure as far as possible.
3. Prepare the ALZOGUR® solution
ALZOGUR® is always diluted with water for use (= in-use solution).
The actual dilution rate depends on the volume of slurry residue present and the purpose of treatment (i.e. combating flies or dysentery pathogens).
(For details on ALZOGUR® application rates and dilution ratios see the packaging label or refer to the “Application rates” section.)
The product should be diluted by measuring the required amount of ALZOGUR® into a beaker, transferring the product into a watering can and then carefully adding water to fill the can.
When using the specially designed ALZOGUR® dispenser cart to apply the product, prepare the in-use solution directly in the dispenser cart tank.
Hose any spilled ALZOGUR® residues into the slurry channel before it dries.
4. Apply ALZOGUR®
ALZOGUR® is applied to the damp pig house floor immediately after cleaning. If the floor has dried, the surface must be dampened again.
Apply the ALZOGUR® in-use solution evenly to slatted floors in coarse droplets, using a watering can or the lance on the ALZOGUR® dispenser cart.
NEVER USE high-pressure cleaners, backpack sprayers or similar devices. The solution must be applied in coarse droplets, without pressure, to prevent aerosol formation and thus ensure its safe application.
Do not treat walls or troughs. ALZOGUR® is stained blue to allow treated surfaces to be easily identified.
ALZOGUR® is only effective if it is applied in sufficient concentration. The solution must be evenly distributed to be optimally effective.
5. Rinse slatted floors
Leave the treated surfaces briefly, about 30-60 minutes, being careful not to allow the in-use solution to dry, then rinse the solution into the slurry channel with a hose, applying NO PRESSURE. NEVER use a high-pressure cleaner! Rinse until all traces of blue have disappeared.
6. Leave the pig house to dry
After rinsing, leave the pig house to dry before disinfecting surfaces as usual.
7. Stock animals
The pig house can then be safely stocked with animals.
