Image Number 4 for United States Patent #6615769.
A method and a device for controlling ectoparasites on animals are disclosed. The method consists of the design of an enclosure with an opening having bait such as food or water within the enclosure. An automatic spraying device is set at the opening. Animals are attracted to walk through the opening to feed or drink. Animals are self-treated with ectoparasiticides every time they enter or exit the enclosure. This method will eliminate the necessary labor to gather animals to be treated individually. The method and device is portable and can be place at any location on a farm or land. The automatic spraying device will provide the necessary dosage of ectoparasiticides on animals to control ectoparasites.
