WHEAT - PREBAITING (MANDATORY)
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
READ THIS LABEL: Read this entire label and follow all use directions and use precautions. Use only for the sites, pests, and application methods described on this label.
USES ASSOCIATED WITH BUILDINGS AND STRUCTURES TO CONTROL NORWAY RATS, ROOF RATS, AND HOUSE MICE
IMPORTANT: Do not expose children, pets, or other nontarget animals to rodenticides. To help prevent accidents:
1. Store product not in use in a location out of reach of children and pets.
2. Apply bait in locations out of reach of children, pets, domestic animals and nontarget wildlife, or in tamper-resistant bait stations. These stations must be resistant to destruction by dogs and by children under six years of age, and must be used in a manner that prevents such children from reaching into bait compartments and obtaining bait. If bait can be shaken from bait stations when they are lifted, units must be secured or otherwise immobilized. Even stronger bait stations are needed in areas open to hoofed livestock, raccoons, bears, other potentially destructive animals, or in areas prone to vandalism.
3. Dispose of product container, and unused, spoiled, and unconsumed bait as specified on this label.
Note: Bait stations are mandatory for outdoor, above-ground use. Tamper-resistant bait stations must be used if children, pests, non-target mammals, or birds may access the bait.
IN AND AROUND BUILDINGS AND STRUCTURES
This product may only be used to control Norway rats, roof rats and house mice in and within 100 feet of man-made structures constructed in a manner so as to be vulnerable to commensal rodent invasions and/or to harboring or attracting rodent infestations. Examples of such structures include homes and other permanent or temporary residences, food processing facilities, industrial and commercial buildings, trash receptacles, agricultural and public buildings, transport vehicles (ships, trains, aircraft), docks and port of terminal buildings and related structures around and associated with these sites. Fence and perimeter baiting, beyond 100 feet from a structure as defined above, is prohibited. This product must not be applied directly to food or feed crops. Do not broadcast bait.
This product may be applied to active rodent burrows to control Norway rats, and roof rats within or beyond 100 feet of buildings and man-made structures, provided that infestations of these rodents have been confirmed. Because Norway/roof rat infestations may occur in areas farther than 100 feet from buildings and man-made structures when the rodents have ample supplies of food and cover, efforts should be made to remove food trash, garbage, clutter and debris. Bait must be placed not less than 6 inches into active Norway/roof rat burrows. Do not broadcast bait.
SELECTION OF TREATMENT AREAS: After removing as much food, water and harborage as possible, determine dry, acid-free areas where rats and mice will most likely find and consume the bait. Generally these areas are along walls, by gnawed openings, in or beside burrows, in corners and concealed places, between floors and walls, or in locations where rats and mice or their signs have been observed.
APPLICATION DIRECTIONS FOR RATS: Apply 1 to 2 teaspoon amounts of bait per placement. For outdoor use, place bait in active rat burrows or tamper-resistant bait stations. Maintain an uninterrupted supply of fresh bait until all signs of feeding have stopped. Do not treat the same area at less than 30 day intervals.
APPLICATION DIRECTIONS FOR MICE: Apply 1 teaspoon of bait per placement at 8 to 12 foot intervals. For outdoor use, place bait in tamper-resistant bait stations. Maintain an uninterrupted supply of fresh bait until all signs of feeding have stopped. Do not treat the same area at less than 30 day intervals.
FOLLOW-UP: Using waterproof gloves, collect and properly dispose of all dead animals and excess bait properly in accordance with “Pesticide Disposal” instructions. Use detergent and hot water to wash spoons for application into burrows. Do not use spoon for mixing, holding or transferring food or feed. To discourage reinfestation, limit sources of rodent food, water, and harborage as much as possible.
USES ASSOCIATED WITH NON-BUILDING AGRICULTURAL SITES
Use Restrictions for all Non-Structural Agricultural Sites
- Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift.
- Only protected handlers may be in the area during application.
- Keep all other persons out of the treated area during this application.
- Do not apply on roads, near residential areas, or over water.
- Do not broadcast over crops unless use directions specifically permit aerial application.
- Apply bait on warm clear days.
Disposal of Spilled and Excess Bait, and Carcasses
Information Applicable for All Agricultural Uses Spilled and Excess Bait: Wearing waterproof gloves, clean up any spilled bait immediately and collect excess bait from application equipment. If bait cannot be applied according to label directions, properly dispose of it according to the “Pesticide Disposal” text.
Carcasses: Wearing waterproof gloves, bury carcasses of ground squirrels (18 inches deep) in holes dug on site or in inactive burrows. Cover and pack with soil. Alternately, use other disposal methods that state and local authorities allow.
USE RESTRICTIONS: For control of meadow voles, long-tailed voles, California voles, Oregon voles, mountain voles, Townsend’s voles (Microtus spp.) and Richardson’s ground squirrels (Spermophilus richardsonii) in growing-season and preplant applications in wheat. Do not apply this product to wheat within 50 days of harvest. This use is restricted to Montana, Idaho, Oregon and the state of Washington. Do not graze animals in treated areas.
PREBAITING (Mandatory): Prebait with a 50/50 mixture of ground corn and wheat to enhance bait acceptance by Richardson’s ground squirrels. Apply the prebait mixture at 6 lbs./A 2-3 days prior to using ZP Ag Pellets.
