HOUSEFLY CONTROL OUTDOORS AND IN EMPTY ANIMAL QUARTERS

General Information

VEGETABLE, FIELD AND FRUIT CROPS:

1. CYGON 480-AG SYSTEMIC INSECTICIDE is a true systemic insecticide. A systemic insecticide is absorbed into the system of the plant upon application and, as with all systemic materials, may in specific plants cause reactions which are neither predictable nor common to all members of the species.

2. FOR PROPER TIMING of treatments for the control of specific pests on crops, consult local agricultural authorities. In general, apply adequate spray for good coverage when pests appear or when damage is first observed, unless otherwise indicated. Do not overdose or overspray.

3. Do not apply foliar sprays during the heat of the day or when temperatures are exceedingly high.

AERIAL APPLICATION DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

Use special care in aerial applications where damage from drift can be greater.

Apply only by fixed-wing or rotary aircraft equipment which has been functionally and operationally calibrated for the atmospheric conditions of the area and the application rates and conditions of the label.

Label rates, conditions and precautions are product specific. Read and understand the entire label before opening this product. Apply only at the rate recommended for aerial application on the label. Where no rate for aerial application appears for the specific use, this product cannot be applied by any type of aerial equipment.

Ensure uniform application. To avoid streaked, uneven or overlapped application, use appropriate marking devices.

Use Precautions:

Apply only when meteorological conditions at the treatment site allow for complete and even crop coverage. Apply only under conditions of good practice specific to aerial application as outlined in the Basic Knowledge Requirements for Pesticide Education in Canada: Applicator Core and Aerial Module, developed by CAPCO.

Do not apply to any body of water. Avoid drifting of spray onto any body of water or other non-target areas. Appropriate buffer zones should be established between treatment areas and aquatic systems and treatment areas and significant wildlife habitat. Do not contaminate water through spray drift or by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes.

Do not apply this product directly to, or otherwise permit it to come into direct contact with non-target crops or other non-target species and do not permit spray mists to drift onto them. Coarse sprays are less likely to drift, therefore, avoid combinations of pressure and nozzle type that result in fine particles (mist). Do not angle nozzles forward into the airstream and do not increase spray volume by increasing nozzle pressure. Apply only when there is little or no hazard from spray drift. Small quantities of the spray, which may not be visible, may contaminate and damage sensitive non-target habitat. A method must be used to detect air movement, lapse conditions, or temperature inversions (stable air) such as the use of balloons or a continuous smoke column at or near the spray site or a smoke generator on the spray equipment. If the smoke develops into layers or indicates a potential for hazardous spray drift, do not spray. Do not spray in winds exceeding 8 km/hour. Do not apply during periods of dead calm or when wind velocity and direction pose a risk of spray drift. Do not spray when the wind is blowing towards a nearby sensitive crop, garden, terrestrial habitat (such as shelter-belt) or aquatic habitat.

Do not use human flaggers.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

A Contact and Residual Insecticide for the Control of Houseflies Outdoors & in Empty Animal Quarters

HOUSEFLY CONTROL OUTDOORS & IN EMPTY ANIMAL QUARTERS:

CYGON 480-AG SYSTEMIC INSECTICIDE controls houseflies for up to 6 weeks. Use a spray solution containing 200-250 mL of CYGON 480-AG SYSTEMIC INSECTICIDE per 10 L of water. Repeat applications should be made when necessary. Good sanitation is an essential part of any effective fly control program. DO NOT use in homes.

IN DAIRY BARNS, HOG PENS, CALF BARNS, POULTRY HOUSES & OTHER FARM BUILDINGS:

Apply a residual spray to the ceilings, walls, stanchions. Thoroughly wet all fly resting areas to the point of runoff. Five to ten litres of spray will cover 100 m2 of surface. For localized fly control apply spot sprays with knapsack or similar type sprayer to doorways, around windows, counters and other areas frequented by flies.

Do not use in milk processing rooms. Remove animals before treatment. DO NOT contaminate food, feed and water troughs. If feed troughs or drinking fountains are contaminated, rinse thoroughly with potable water.

GENERAL OUTDOOR USE:

Use to control houseflies in garbage cans, empty animal quarters, food processing plants, warehouses, loading docks and refuse areas. Spray exposed surfaces, such as walls, fences, refuse containers and garbage cans. Exposure of sprayed areas to weather, particularly sunshine, reduces the duration of residual effects. Repeat applications as necessary.
