Formalin is an aldehyde disinfectant product used extensively in livestock housing.
Formalin can be applied as a wet spray to surfaces and equipment however it is generally applied as a thermal fog (thermal fogging) when disinfecting large areas such as poultry houses. Formalin is also used as a foot disinfectant for sheep and cattle.
If using as a spray dilute 1 part formalin to 4 parts water (1:4) and apply at 400 ml per square metre of surface area.
When thermal fogging formalin is used undiluted at a rate of 10 litres per 10,000 square feet (approximately 1,000 square metres) of floor space. Apply using a suitable thermal fog machine.
