Directions For Use

FATAL ATTRACTION® FLY BAIT contains a fly attractant which encourages both male and female flies to remain in the treated area, thus feeding on the bait. Bait should be scattered over specified fly feeding surfaces daily or as needed to provide initial knockdown and reduction to fly populations. Distribute bait from container or other device to avoid handling bait. Wear chemical resistant gloves when applying product. When used in areas accessible to birds, bait must be placed in a bait station which prevents birds from consuming the bait.

Barns, Poultry Houses: Scatter bait at the rate of 250 g per 100 m2 to window sills and other areas where flies congregate. Apply only to areas out of reach of animals. For caged poultry scatter bait on walkways.

Dog Kennels: Scatter bait around outside areas of dog pens, runways, out of reach of animals at the rate of 250 g per 100 m2.

DO NOT apply this product directly to freshwater habitats (such as lakes, rivers, sloughs, ponds, prairie potholes, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs and wetlands) or to estuarine/marine habitats.

DO NOT contaminate irrigation or drinking water supplies or aquatic habitats by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes.

Spilled fly bait granules must be cleaned up by collecting the bulk of granules and any remaining on the soil surface should be buried.

ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS: This pesticide is toxic to aquatic organisms. Toxic to birds and small wild mammals. To reduce runoff from treated areas into aquatic habitats avoid application to areas with a moderate to steep slope, compacted soil, or clay. Avoid application when heavy rain is forecast. Contamination of aquatic areas as a result of runoff may be reduced by including a vegetative strip between the treated area and the edge of the water body. The use of this chemical may result in contamination of ground water particularly in areas where soils are permeable (e.g. sandy soil) and/or the depth to the water table is shallow. Keep out of lakes, streams or ponds. Do not contaminate water by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes.
