Viru-Gard is safe for the environment, degrading to harmless components at in-use dilutions.

Viru-Gard is cost effective with high dilution efficiency and effective in adverse conditions such as hard water, organic soiling and low temperature.

Instructions for Use

Viru-Gard can be used for terminal disinfection, fogging (in the presence or absence of livestock) and for water sanitation.

Terminal Surface and Equipment Disindection

Use via a pressure washer with a fan nozzle set at 500-1000 psi at a dilution of 1:200, thoroughly wetting all surfaces. This will require 250-300 ml of solution per m2 to achieve thorough wetting.

Fogging

Using a mechanical fogger apply a 1:200 dilution as a fine mist. This procedure can be safely carried out in the presence of livestock at times of disease challenge.

Water Sanitation

During terminal disinfection, drain header tank and clean, fill tank and dose with Viru-Gard to achieve a 1:200 dilution. Allow solution to stand in system for 1 hour, drain and flush with clean water.

With birds present, dose the header tank daily with a 1:1000 dilution.

Recommended Dilution Rates

Viru-Gard is active against a wide range of organisms and depending on requirements can be used at dilutions ranging from 1:100 to 1:1000. General purpose disinfection 1:200
