Backrubs

AC Backrubs make different types and sizes of backrubs to suit most needs, including 1m, 2m and 3m – but we will make any size you want. Our backrubs are engineered to withstand the harsh Australian conditions and are currently in use in thousands of properties throughout Australia.

Self-feeding backrubs

The self-feeding backrub uses a kink-resistant, reinforced poly tubing to connect to a drum containing the fly control solution. The backrub must be submerged for a few hours to completely saturate the backrub in the fly control solution. Then hang the backrub vertically over the container to drain the excess off. Then hang the backrub in position.

With the use of a tap on the drum you can maintain continuous saturation without needing to attend to it. The tap should only be opened enough to service the backrub. If the mixture is dripping onto the ground, the tap is open too much, resulting in wastage of mixture.

Plain backrubs

The plain backrub requires pouring the fly control solution by hand onto the backrub after the initial soaking. The backrub must be submerged for a few hours to completely saturate the backrub in the fly control solution. Then hang the backrub vertically over the container to drain the excess off. Then hang the backrub in position.

After the first week, apply a further 2 to 4 L of the fly control solution,  then only 2 L should be necessary every 10 days or when needed during fly season.
