PYROFOS CS may be applied in compressed air backpack or power spray equipment. Depending on type of equipment used to apply product and landscaping of perimeter, use 0.5 – 1.75 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft. For larger spray equipment, use 5 to 8.75 fl oz of product per 50 gallons of water applied at 10 gallons of dilution per 1,000 sq ft. (50 gallons will cover 5000 square feet.)

- Remove all animals prior to making application to housing.

- Do not apply or allow insecticide to drift into animals.

- Do not allow animals to enter treated areas until surfaces are dry.

For control of darkling beetles in poultry production facilities mix PYROFOS CS at a rate of 2 to 5 ounces/1,000 sq. ft. of floor area, in .5 gallons of water/1,000 sq. ft. of floor area. Apply to litter, paying particular attention to areas under feeder lines, water lines, and the perimeter. Conduct application as close to bird placement as possible. Repeat applications may be made just prior to placement of each flock. It is important to rotate chemical classes of insecticides on as part of a rotation program to avoid resistance to any class of insecticides.

For control of other pests and to help prevent infestations of buildings, treat a band of soil 6-10 ft wide around and adjacent to the building. Also treat the building foundation and sides where pest are active and may enter. Treat other insect entry points such as doors, windows, under siding and eaves of structure.
