General Information

GENERAL USE INFORMATION

Important:

PERM-UP 3.2 EC is toxic to fish. Exercise care when making applications near ponds, lakes, streams, reservoirs and other aquatic environments where fish are present.

For advice concerning current control practices with relation to specific local conditions, consult your local State Cooperative Extension or regulatory agencies.

PERM-UP 3.2 EC is formulated as an emulsifiable concentrate (EC) formulation and is to be diluted with water and applied as an emulsion. When tank mixing as an emulsion with other products, observe all precautions and limitations on the labels of each product in the mixture.

PERM-UP 3.2 EC can be tank-mixed with natural pyrethrin-containing products or Insect Growth Regulators (IGRs). Do not tank mix with dichlorvos (DDVP) or other fumigant products.

Resistance: Some insects are known to develop resistance to products used repeatedly for control. Because the development of resistance cannot be predicted, the use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the use area. Consult your local or state agricultural authorities for details.

If resistance to this product develops in your area, this product, or other products with a similar mode of action may not provide adequate control. If poor performance cannot be attributed to improper application or extreme weather conditions, a resistant strain of insect may be present. If you experience difficulty with control and resistance is a reasonable cause, immediately consult your local agricultural advisor for the best alternative method of control for your area.

Remarks:

Preparation of the building prior to fogging: (1) Close all doors, windows, and ventilators, (2) Lock or barricade all entrances, turn off pilot lights, post warning signs, and take precautions to prevent persons and animals from entering the area. Use prior to filling the house, during cool-down, during spawning, up to pinning, and between breaks. Do not use when mushrooms are present. Treat once daily as needed when flies appear. Do not make more than 20 applications prior to pinning of first break; apply no more than two applications between each break. Do not apply more than 30 applications total per crop of 5 breaks. Length of exposure time should be limited to 1 hour; then ventilate the house. Use fans to ventilate in houses that do not have forced air circulation. Wear a respirator with either an organic vapor-removing cartridge with a pre-filter approved for pesticides (MSHA/NIOSH approval number prefix TC-23C), or a canister approved for pesticides (MSHA/NIOSH approval number prefix TC -14G).

-Apply in 30 ounces of water or suitable diluent. Use 1 quart of solution per standard double house (35,000 cu. ft.: 8000 sq. ft.).

-Apply as a fogging or aerosol treatment.
