What is Vetark Lice-Solve?

Lice-Solve (previously known as Mectinsol) is a specially developed, unique rapidly dissolving formulation containing 1.4% emamectin. Lice-Solve successfully treats parasites such as Argulus (fish lice) species, Ergasilus (gill maggot), and Lernea (anchor worm) and can be used in a wide range of fish.

Lice-Solve is suitable for both freshwater and marine systems, including in the presence of salt when added as a therapeutic and is effective from 3°C. Fish can be fed normally during treatment. Lice-Solve is safe with biofilters and plants. It has been specifically developed by Fish Treatment Ltd for the hobbyist.

With its easy-to-use formulation, fish can be treated by immersion in the product, avoiding the need for the problems associated with oral administration of medicines in ornamental fish. It can be used directly into the pond or tank where the fish are kept, or fish can be moved into a separate treatment tank for the treatment period.

How do I use Vetark Lice-Solve?

UV filters should be switched off during use of the product. Do not use in animals other than those indicated. Serious reactions, including deaths, have been reported in dogs (especially collies, Old English Sheep Dogs and related breeds), tortoises and turtles treated with products containing the active substance.

Use at a rate of 4g powder per 1,000 litres (220 gallons) of pond or tank water. Simply take a clean container of the pond or tank water and add the required dosage of Lice-Solve to it, then stir. Immediately add this stock solution to the pond or tank, and then rinse out the container with the pond or tank water and add that as well.

If necessary a separate tank can be used to treat the fish for a treatment period of at least 24 hours. Take care to turn off skimmers while it is in use since they will remove the emamectin from the water, as will modern filtration systems which use carbon derivatives or some drum filter technologies.

Make sure that the water is well oxygenated during treatment.
