I assume it can be painted over or do i do it after finishing painting? 

Words can be like X-rays if you use them properly -- they’ll go through anything. You read and you’re pierced.

It can be painted over.  Be sure to have a roll of paper towels handy.  It can be very messy., especially if you are not accostomed to using one of those guns.  Have the guy in the paint dept. show you how to put the break on with the gun, or the caulk will keep coming out until the pressure is relieved.  Just squeeze it into the crack and smooth it with your finger.  Do one crack at a time as it dries quickly.

Have fun!

Here is a quote from the first state vet supply about oxine---

 

Unlike other disinfectants, Pathogens can NOT become Resistant to OXINE and Pathogens that are resistant to other disinfectants succumb quickly and easily to OXINE. In tests conducted at the University of Oklahoma, Oxine was tested to be 200 times more powerful that Chlorine Bleach.It took 600 ppm of Chlorine Bleach to kill the deadly Bacteria E.coli 0157:H7 while it only took 3 ppm of OXINE to accomplish the same test results. Oxine is also used to control STICKY EYE in Ducks as well as Nasal Flushing of all Poultry. Complete DIRECTIONS are supplied with each bottle of OXINE.

They stress it more for biosecurity and for drinking water than for pests and parasites....but I still think it would be a good thing to spray (it is a liquid).  :O)
