Basseterre, St. Kitts, August 12, 2019 (SKNIS)
Director in the Department of Agriculture, Melvin James, said that Bayticol, which is an acaricide, used to control ticks and lice in ruminant animals such as sheep, goats, cattle and horses, has now been restocked.He said that there had been some difficulty in sourcing Bayticol as the regular supplier has been unable to deliver. Although the situation remains the same, Mr. James said “The Department of Agriculture has been doing its very utmost, and we can now report that we have been able to bring an emergency shipment.
The Director of Agriculture explained that the product is rare and because of this, it comes with an increased price tag. He said that the insecticide cost the department a considerable amount to be able to fly it in from France and as such would incur an increased price.
