NOTICE: This concentrate is for dilution with water only; it cannot be diluted in oil.

Application Instructions

This product is recommended for application with hand-held, backpack, portable & truck mounted ULV sprayers and portable and vehicle mounted mist-blowers for wide area applications, to control adult mosquitoes, black flies, gnats and non-biting midges, stable flies, horse flies, deer flies, sheep flies, horn flies, and nuisance flying insects such as houseflies or blow flies.

Wide Area And Space Spray Application For Mosquito Control Over Non Crop Areas

Do not exceed 0.036 pounds of AI per acre per year to any site. During any three day period do not apply more than 0.00134 lb a.i./A. Do not make more than 25 applications per site per year. More frequent applications and more than 25 applications per site may be made to prevent or control a threat to public and/or animal health determined by a state, tribal or local health or vector control agency on the basis of documented evidence of disease causing agents in vector mosquitoes or the occurrence of mosquito-borne disease in animal or human populations, or if specifically approved by the state or tribe during a natural disaster recovery effort.

DeltaGard Insecticide is approved for application as an Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) aerosol to control flying or resting adult mosquitoes in residential, industrial, urban, recreational, and municipal areas where adult mosquitoes are found. This product is used for control of mosquitoes in areas such as residential areas, industrial areas, urban areas (such as utility tunnels, sewers, storm drains and catch basins, pipe chases, basements, underground passages, parking decks, crawl spaces, or uninhabited buildings), parks, campsites, woodlands, athletic fields, golf courses, playgrounds, recreational and overgrown waste areas, roadsides, swamps, marshes, tidal areas, corrals, feed lots, swine lots, poultry ranges, zoos, animal quarters, barns, dumps, junkyards, tire dumps, and other areas where adult mosquitoes may be found.

If treatments are made with animals present, the maximum number of applications per year depends on the application rate used; 10 applications at 0.00134 lb ai/A, 15 applications at 0.00089 lb ai/A, or 30 applications at 0.00045 lb ai/A.

For best results, apply when insects are most active and meteorological conditions are conducive to keeping the spray cloud in the air column close to the ground. An inversion of air temperatures and a light breeze is preferable. Application during the cooler hours of the night or early morning is recommended. Apply when wind speed is equal to or greater than 1 mph.

Applications Over Crops Or To Areas Favoring Drift Over Crops

This product may be applied over any and all crops or agricultural areas, (including row, tree, fruit, citrus, pasture, rangeland, and other areas where agricultural enterprises take place) for the control of adult mosquitoes within or adjacent to the treatment areas, or to areas where drift over cropland could occur. Use label rates and follow directions for use as directed in this label. Applications over crops or where drift may occur over crops are limited to 0.0134 lb ai per acre per year, with no more than one application in any three day interval. Maximum number of applications per year depends on the application rate used; 10 applications at 0.00134 lb ai/A, 15 applications at 0.00089 lb ai/A, or 30 applications at 0.00045 lb ai/A. More frequent applications and more than 0.0134 lb. ai per acre per year per site may be made to prevent or control a threat to public and/or animal health determined by a state, tribal or local health or vector control agency on the basis of documented evidence of disease causing agents in vector mosquitoes or the occurrence of mosquito-borne disease in animal or human populations, or if specifically approved by the state or tribe during a natural disaster recovery effort.

Droplet Size Determination For Ground Application Equipment

This proprietary FFAST (Film Forming Aqueous Spray Technology) formulation greatly reduces the evaporation rate of water from the sprayed droplets and allows the water-based spray cloud to behave as that produced by a typical oil-based formulation. This enables the spray droplets to maintain optimum size and stability while drifting through the target area.

Spray equipment must be adjusted so that the volume median diameter (VMD) is between 8-30 microns (8µ ≤ Dv0.5 ≤ 30µ) and that 90% of the spray is contained in droplets smaller than 50 microns (Dv 0.9 < 50µm). Directions from the equipment manufacturer or vendor or a test facility using a laser-based measurement instrument must be used to adjust equipment to produce acceptable droplet size spectra. Application equipment must be tested at least annually to confirm that pressure at the nozzle and nozzle flow rate(s) are properly calibrated.

ULV NON-THERMAL AEROSOL (COLD FOG):

Apply through any non-thermal ULV application equipment capable of producing the required droplet spectrum. Base acreage calculations on the equipment manufacturer’s recommended swath width. Apply at a rate not to exceed 0.00134 pounds of deltamethrin per acre in any given 3 day interval. An optimum swath is created when this product is applied from a truck that is being driven perpendicular to the wind direction. Direct the spray head of equipment to ensure even distribution of the spray cloud throughout the area. This product may be applied through ULV Cold Aerosol Generators, or other equipment designed for non-thermal ULV aerosol applications.

The desired application rate may be obtained under different conditions by altering the dilution rate of this product, the flow rate of the insecticide from the application equipment and the vehicle speed. Examples are given in the following table:

Where dense vegetation or a public health emergency is present, the use of the highest label rate is recommended.

When targeting organophosphate resistant or other difficult to control species of mosquitoes or flies use of the high label rate is recommended.

PORTABLE, BACKPACK OR HAND CARRIED ULV APPLICATION:

Apply through non-thermal ULV application equipment and base acreage calculations on a 50 foot swath. At a pace of 2 MPH (2.9 ft/sec) apply 1 ounce per minute of DeltaGard Insecticide diluted as follows: for an application rate of 0.00045 pounds of Deltamethrin per acre dilute 1 to 14, for an application rate of 0.00089 pounds of deltamethrin per acre dilute 1 to 6.5, for an application rate of 0.00134 pounds of deltamethrin per acre dilute 1 to 4. Based on the above dilution and application rates apply 5 ounces of diluted product while walking 870 feet (290 yards).

Application For Fly Control

DeltaGard Insecticide is approved for application as an Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) aerosol to control flying or resting adult flies in residential, industrial, urban, recreational, and municipal areas where flies are found. This product is used for control of flies in areas such as residential areas, industrial areas, urban areas (such as utility tunnels, sewers, storm drains and catch basins, pipe chases, basements, underground passages, parking decks, crawl spaces, or uninhabited buildings), parks, campsites, woodlands, athletic fields, golf courses, playgrounds, recreational and overgrown waste areas, roadsides, swamps, marshes, tidal areas, corrals, feed lots, swine lots, poultry ranges, zoos, animal quarters, barns, dumps, junkyards, tire dumps, and other areas where adult mosquitoes and flies may be found.

This product is recommended for application with hand-held, backpack, portable, & truck mounted ULV sprayers and portable and vehicle mounted mist-blowers for area applications, to control, black flies, gnats, non-biting midges, stable flies, horse flies, deer flies, sheep flies, horn flies, and nuisance pests such as face flies or blow flies. Spray equipment must be adjusted so that the volume median diameter (VMD) is between 8-30 microns (8µ ≤ Dv0.5 ≤ 30µ) and that 90% of the spray is contained in droplets smaller than 50 microns (Dv 0.9 < 50µm).

For the treatment of livestock and poultry facilities (e.g., cattle, dairy and livestock barns, goat houses, horse stables/barns, loafing sheds, poultry houses, shade houses, stables, swine houses, feedlots, manure piles, swine yards, corrals, stockyards, holding pens, and other animal facilities) where flies become pests and quick knockdown is needed.

This product may be applied undiluted, but to maximize efficacy against larger fly species (e.g., blow flies, filth flies) it is recommended to dilute in water (1 + 1) before application, increasing the droplet density in the ULV cloud.

Indoors, reduce air movement as much as possible before applying by closing doors, windows and other openings; if animals are present, ventilate the treated area immediately following application.

When treating indoors, cover any exposed drinking water, drinking fountains, and animal feed before application. Outdoors, apply when insects are most active, usually in late afternoon when there is little wind. Pay particular attention to areas where flies congregate, such as around feed bunks, fences, and on the exterior walls of buildings.

Animals may be present during treatment.

If treatments are made with animals present, the maximum number of applications per year depends on the application rate used; 10 applications at 0.00134 lb ai/A, 15 applications at 0.00089 lb ai/A, or 30 applications at 0.00045 lb ai/A.
