• Coveralls over long-sleeved shirt and long pants;

• Chemical-resistant gloves made of barrier laminate, butyl rubber, nitrile rubber or viton;

• Chemical-resistant footwear plus socks, and

• Chemical-resistant headgear, if overhead exposure.

Applicators using ULV cold foggers and/or fog/mist generators in outdoor spaces must wear:

• Long-sleeve shirt and long pants,

• Shoes plus socks, and

• Chemical-resistant gloves made of barrier laminate, butyl rubber, nitrile rubber or viton.

All other mixers, loaders, applicators, and other handlers must wear:

• Long-sleeve shirt and long pants,

User Safety Requirements

Follow manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning/maintaining PPE. If no such instructions for washables exist, use detergent and hot water. Keep and wash PPE separately from other laundry. Discard clothing and other absorbent materials that have been drenched or heavily contaminated with this product’s concentrate. Do not reuse them.

User Safety Recommendations

Users should wash hands before eating, drinking, chewing gum, using tobacco, or using the toilet.

Users should remove clothing/PPE immediately if pesticide gets inside. Then wash thoroughly and put on clean clothing.

Users should remove PPE immediately after handling this product. Wash the outside of gloves before removing. As soon as possible, wash thoroughly and change into clean clothing.

Environmental Hazards

This pesticide is extremely toxic to aquatic organisms, including fish and invertebrates. Do not apply directly to water, to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark. Do not apply when weather conditions favor drift from treated areas. Drift and runoff from treated areas may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in neighboring areas. Do not contaminate water disposing of equipment wash waters. Under some conditions, it may also have a potential for transport into surface water in runoff (primarily absorbed to suspended soil particles), for several months or more after applications. These include poorly draining or wet soils with readily visible slopes toward adjacent surface waters, frequently flooded areas, and areas overlying extremely shallow groundwater, areas with in-field canals or ditches that drain to surface water, areas not separated from adjacent surface waters with vegetated filter strips, and areas over-lying tile drainage systems that drain to surface waters.

This pesticide is highly toxic to bees exposed to direct treatment on blooming crops or weeds. Do not apply this product or allow it to drift to blooming crops or weeds while bees are actively visiting the treatment area.

Physical Or Chemical Hazards

Combustible. Do not use or store near heat or open flame.

Storage And Disposal

Do not contaminate water, food or feed by storage or disposal.

Pesticide Storage And Spill Procedures:

Store upright at room temperature, preferably under lock and key. Avoid exposure to extreme temperatures. Post as a pesticide storage area. Always store pesticides in the original container. Store away from food, pet food, feed, seed, fertilizers, and veterinary supplies. Place liquid formulations on lower shelves and dry formulations above. In case of spill or leakage, soak up with an absorbent material such as sand, sawdust, earth, fuller’s earth, etc. Dispose of with chemical waste.

Pesticide Disposal:

Pesticide wastes are acutely hazardous. To avoid wastes, use all material in this container by application according to label directions. If wastes cannot be avoided, offer remaining product to a waste disposal facility or pesticide disposal program (often such programs are run by state or local governments or by industry).

CONTAINER HANDLING:

CONTAINERS 5 GALLONS OR SMALLER:

Nonrefillable container. Do not reuse or refill this container.

Triple rinse container (or equivalent) promptly after emptying.

Triple rinse as follows: Empty the remaining contents into application equipment or a rinse tank and drain for 10 seconds after the flow begins to drip. Fill the container 1/4 full with water and recap. Shake for 10 seconds. Pour rinsate into application equipment or a mix tank or store rinsate for later use or disposal. Drain for 10 seconds after the flow begins to drip. Repeat this procedure two more times. Then offer for recycling if available, or puncture and dispose of in a sanitary landfill or by incineration. Do not burn unless allowed by state and local ordinances.

For transport, move only non-treated hive support pallet onto trailer. Leave treated (bottom) pallet on site, properly discard or transport separately to new site.

**Do not apply dilutions for premise treatment directly on livestock or poultry. Ensure that feed and water are not contaminated by spray drift. For space spraying, do not remain in treated areas and ventilate the area before reoccupying. Animals should be removed from area prior to treatment. The use of any residual fly spray should be supplemented with proper manure management and general sanitation to reduce or eliminate fly breeding sites.

NOTE: Permethrin is highly toxic to bees and extreme caution must be taken to avoid contact by spray or spray drift with the bees, hive or any other surfaces that bees may contact. When hives are present, applications may only be made with a sprinkler can. Hand pump sprayers may only be used when hives are not present and only for pre-placement cleanup of apiary. Do not contaminate any water or food source that may be in the area or apply during windy conditions. For better soil penetration and improved efficacy, cut grass around hive prior to application.
