Question Deosect for horses to treat lice; anyone tried it?

Yes, so unfortunately, Hip Hop has a few lice on him, spotted them not long ago. treated all three horses in that field with the Deosect spray for horses concentrate, will have a good look at him again tomorrow, but from the reviews i've read on the internet, it's worked very well. It recommends using again within 14 days to kill any eggs; do you think doing it this weekend would be too early? We treated them all on Sunday! Thanks! :)

I would wait the two weeks- give any eggs time to hatch and kill the rest of them off.

Interesting. I've never heard of that brand. Most people will either dust or give iodine baths to get rid of lice.

Yeah, think i'm going to wait, you're right, I don't think all of the eggs will have hatched yet! :) Yeah, it's doing really well actually, went up and checked on him today and can't see anything! Didn't really want to bath him as it was too cold, but he's very long haired, so I think we'd have struggled to get the powder right onto his skin, so it was a good choice, I think! You just had to mix it with water to dilute it, then put it ina spray bottle and use it like that, but we ended up spraying it onto brushes becuase they didn't like the spray haha! :)
