Horsefly on a horse's maneHorsefly on horse's maneAnimal external parasites fall into two main families of organisms: insects (mainly diptera) and mites.

This dossier will look at the action of Alt'O Zinsect repellent on 4 parasites : flies, mange, ticks and red lice.


Action of Alt'O Zinsect repellent on flies

Alt'O Zinsect acts at different levels :

1 - On the larval stage : in the event of contact with the environment of larvae and pupae, Alt'O Zinsect acts through its direct anti-appetent action on the feeding substrate.

2 - On the larval stage : by blocking moulting hormones.

3 - In the adult stage : Insect repellent action of Alt'O Zinsect . Alt'O Zinsect has an olfactory repellent action on flies, providing local protection for animals. Sucking insects will also ingest the product (impossible for haematophagous insects).

The active ingredients in Alt'O Zinsect are registered with the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and have been tested on more than 100 species of Diptera.

How Alt'O Zinsect repellent works against scabies

Alt'O Zinsect is a combination of two main plant extracts with complementary properties :

1 - The first extract has a rapid action on parasites. Effective anti-parasite action within 2 days of application.

2 - The second extract expresses its anti-parasitic power within 7 days of application. Its action is more persistent and can last up to 3 months.


Alt'O Zinsect acts at different stages of the mange reproduction cycle :

  • On the pupal stage : Alt'O Zinsect limits the development of pupae and thus the appearance of adults. The target of Alt'O Zinsect is the synthesis of ecdysone, an essential hormone for cuticle development.
  • On the adult stage : Alt'O Zinsect acts on the parasites' olfactory system, resulting in a powerful repellent action. The parasites stop feeding and eventually die.
  • On the egg stage : Alt'O Zinsect limits oviposition and inhibits embryogenesis.
