Chicken

Omnicide destroys the pathogens causing diseases in Chickens. Omnicide is extremely effective in controlling these economically important and *difficult to kill disease pathogens.

 

*Newcastle disease

*Avian influenza

*Mareks

Egg Drop Syndrome

Chronic Respiratory disease

Aspergillosis

*Infectious bronchitis

*Infectious bursal disease (Gumboro)

*Coryza

Infectious laryngotracheitis

Fowl Cholera

Pullorum

Broilers

Broiler chickens raised intensively in enclosed or free range housing are susceptible to respiratory, gut and organ diseases. Terminal disinfection of housing and surrounding environments is necessary after clearing out each batch, before restocking with new chicks. Pay particular attention to brushing or washing dust from all overhead surfaces as disease pathogens thrive and survive in these areas. See the disease pathogen control chart for comprehensive information on specific disease identity and Omnicide dilution rates.

Layers

Layer chickens kept in cages are susceptible to respiratory, gut and organ diseases. Keep batches of laying hens together. Do not introduce replacement stock into mature batches. Regularly disinfect cages, feeders, drinkers and egg collection equipment. Disinfect overhead surfaces to destroy pathogens surviving in dust.

See the disease pathogen control chart for comprehensive information on specific disease identity and Omnicide dilution rates.

Breeders

Breeding hens are subject to the same disease pressures as other poultry, but Biosecurity is extremely important to avoid diseases which affect the hatchability of eggs. It is critically important to prevent gram negative bacteria of Salmonella, Pseudomonas and E.Coli, and Aspergillus fungus from infecting eggs. Omnicide is extremely effective in controlling these pathogens.

See the disease pathogen control chart for comprehensive information on specific disease identity and Omnicide dilution rates.

Hatcheries – Protection of Eggs

The use of Omnicide in Hatcheries

Omnicide is a versatile disinfectant for hatchery use. It destroys all the pathogens which are most prevalent in hatcheries; Salmonella typhimurium, E. coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Aspergillus flavus. It is non-corrosive and is safe to eggs and chicks.

It has the following applications;

  • Disinfection of newly laid eggs
  • Disinfection of eggs in setters and hatchers
  • Disinfectant of all hatchery buildings
  • Disinfection of all hatchery equipment
  • Disinfection of transport vehicles

Newly laid eggs

Omnicide may be used as an egg disinfectant because it is no longer advisable to treat newly laid eggs (destined for the hatchery) with formaldehyde gas. Problems of human exposure to carcinogenic formaldehyde gas, environmental concerns and difficulties in obtaining the necessary chemicals have caused hatchery managers to seek viable alternatives.

Newly laid eggs may be dipped in a 1:30 dilution of Omnicide, for 3 minutes at a temperature of 40°C (104°F) to kill the bacteria which immediately invade eggs during the laying process and shortly after. Omnicide will destroy bacteria and fungus on and within the eggshell and leave a residual protection. Eggs may be dipped as soon as they are collected to reduce the opportunity for pathogens to penetrate the shells.

Eggs in setters and hatchers

Eggs in setter and hatchers may be treated with Omnicide to prevent colonisation by Aspergillus fungus. Omnicide may be sprayed up to 48 hours before hatching as it will not harm embryos.

It is preferable to apply Omnicide in setters and hatchers by misting or fogging machines;

Cold fog at 1:9 dilution, or

Thermal fog at 1:4 dilution

Dilute Omnicide at 1:150 to apply by fine pressure spray if fogging/misting equipment is not available

Hatchery buildings

Misting of Omnicide throughout hatchery buildings will prevent the build-up of Aspergillus.

Cold fog at 1:9 dilution, or

Thermal fog at 1:4 dilution

Regular thorough cleaning of all hatchery rooms using cationic detergents followed by Omnicide disinfection will destroy all pathogens. Use a dilution of 1:100 for all disinfection of all hard surfaces. Omnicide is non corrosive to all metals, plastics, tiles and concrete.

Hatchery equipment

Omnicide is non corrosive to all metals and plastics. Dilute at 1:150 to disinfect egg collection boxes, setters, hatchers, chick boxes and chick delivery boxes.

Delivery vehicles

Omnicide is non corrosive to all metals and plastics. Clean delivery vehicles with a cationic detergent then disinfect with Omnicide spray at a dilution of 1:150.

Foot & Wheel baths

Use Omnicide at a dilution of 1:100 for foot and wheel baths

The use of cationic detergents for cleaning before disinfection is recommended because cationic detergent chemistry will not reduce the effect of detergents.
