Composition of Amitraz 20
This ectoparasiticide contains 20% (w/v) Amitraz in the form of an emulsifiable concentrate
Mode of Action
Amitraz action involves interaction with Octopamine receptors in the tick’s nervous system, causing an increase in nervous activity.
- Amitraz has a detachment effect: if they are not directly killed, ticks leave the host before completing or even initiating their blood meal.
- Amitraz also has a repellent effect that keeps many ticks away from treated animals.
- It is also recommended to treat kennels, livestock pen, and pastures to kill off larva and control reinfestation of the treated animals.
- Amitraz is also effective against scab and mange mites (Psoroptes spp, Sarcoptes spp, etc.) and against certain lice species.
