Directions For Use

AGITA Fly Bait is a new fly bait formula containing a house fly sex attractant which encourages both male and female house flies to remain in the treated areas, thereby feeding on the bait. Bait should be scattered once per day over fly feeding areas and places where flies are known to congregate to provide initial knockdown and reduction of house fly populations. Scatter AGITA Fly Bait at a rate of 200 g per 100 m2 from a container or other device to avoid handling bait. Bait may also be used in hanging or stationary tamper-resistant bait boxes in locations not accessible to children, pets, domestic animals or wildlife. AGITA Fly Bait should be used as part of an integrated pest management program for house flies.

AREAS OF USE:

May be used in agricultural buildings (e.g. barns, poultry houses, etc.) in areas where house flies congregate such as windowsills and near animal pens, provided the bait is kept out of reach of animals. Do not use on walkways used by animals.

Precautions

KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN, PETS, DOMESTIC ANIMALS AND WILDLIFE. Do not ingest or inhale. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT:

For resistance management, thiamethoxam is a Group 4 insecticide. Any house fly population may contain individuals naturally resistant to thiamethoxam and Group 4 insecticides. To delay insecticide resistance, avoid exclusive, repeated use of AGITA Fly Bait or other Group 4 insecticides. Keep accurate records of insecticides used in your operation. Keep the house fly population as low as possible by manure management.
