Pet Kennels

Apply as a coarse wet spray to the exterior surface of dog kennels where ticks have been found or may seek shelter.

Stable flies, Mosquitoes, House flies, Blue bottle flies, Flesh flies, and Cluster flies

Apply low pressure (do not exceed 345 kPa (50 psi) at nozzle tip) spray to outside of surfaces of buildings and other areas where house flies rest.

Section 7 - Resistance Management Recommendations

For resistance management, please note that Annihilator PolyZone contains a Group 3 insecticide. Any insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Annihilator PolyZone and other Group 3 insecticides. The resistant individuals may dominate the insect population if this group of insecticides is used repeatedly in the same location. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action, but specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance management strategies should be followed.

To delay insecticide resistance:

● Where possible, rotate the use of Annihilator PolyZone or other Group 3 insecticides with different groups that control the same pests.

● Insecticide use should be based on an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program that includes scouting and record keeping, and considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices.

● Monitor treated pest populations for resistance development.

● Contact your local extension specialist for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or IPM recommendations for the specific site and pest problems in your area.

For further information and to report suspected resistance, contact Bayer CropScience Inc. at 1-888-283-6847 or at www.cropscience.bayer.ca.
