FOR FLEA CONTROL:

Flea eggs deposited on treated areas will not develop into adult fleas. Flea larvae crawling onto treated surfaces will also not develop into adult fleas. NyGuard EZ1® IGR Concentrate eliminates the flea population when used as directed. NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate causes a gradual reduction and ultimate elimination of the flea population by breaking the reproductive cycle. NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate stops the flea life cycle and inhibits the development of the immature stages of the flea eggs and larvae for 7 months preventing them from reaching the biting adult stage. Existing adult fleas and flea pupae are not affected.

If a high population of adult fleas is present, the use of an adulticide may be necessary for immediate control. NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate may also be combined with a flea adulticide. NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate complements the rapid activity of the adulticide by providing long term control of preadult fleas eggs and larvae before they mature and become biting adults.

Flea control on pets is important in the prevention of the introduction of adult fleas. Pets, their bedding and the areas they frequent should also be treated with EPA registered flea and tick control products, such as flea or flea and tick collar, pet powder, pet spray, pet dip, pet shampoo, flea shampoo or flea and tick shampoo, as part of a complete flea control program in conjunction with this application to minimize the introduction of adult fleas.

NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate can be used prior to the flea season. Application of this product in areas where pets and other animals are known to frequent and where previous infestations have been known to occur will prevent the emergence of adult fleas and also control immature stages of fleas. This early usage could reduce the need for conventional insecticides when used alone as directed. Pretreatment of these areas before the fleas become biting and reproductive adults will aid in reducing developing populations.

OUTDOOR FLEA CONTROL:

Apply NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate dilution, to areas where pets normally frequent such as under trees, ornamental plants and shrubs. NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate acts on the immature life stages of the flea, preventing the development of adult fleas. Flea eggs deposited on treated areas will not develop into adult fleas. Flea larvae crawling onto treated surfaces will also not develop into adult fleas. NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate eliminates the flea population when used as directed. NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate controls the flea population by inhibiting reproduction. NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate causes a gradual reduction and ultimately eliminates the flea population by breaking the reproductive cycle. This concentrate does not affect existing adult fleas and flea pupae. Application on soil surfaces will provide 21 days of IGR activity. Treat lawn area with an EPA registered lawn treatment product to kill adult fleas if a large population exists.

SPRAY PREPARATION: Using a hose-end sprayer, tank type sprayer or sprinkling can, prepare a diluted spray solution by adding 1 fl. oz. of NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate in a sufficient volume of water to achieve thorough coverage of 1,000 sq. ft. Partially filling the sprayer with water, add NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate, agitate and fill with water to the final volume. Agitate before each spray.

Spray using a slow, even sweeping motion, being sure to cover surface areas where pets normally frequent. Avoid soaking young or flowering plants. One (1) tsp. per gallon will cover 166 sq. ft. for treating pet resting areas. Do not apply under windy conditions. Do not apply this product in or around bodies of water. Repeat application in 21 days.

Remove animals before spraying and do not allow animals or children to return to treated areas until spray has dried completely. Pets and their bedding should also be treated with EPA registered flea and tick control products, such as flea or flea and tick collar, pet dust, pet spray, pet dip, pet shampoo, flea shampoo or flea and tick pet shampoo, in conjunction with this application as a part of a complete flea control program to prevent the introduction of adult fleas.

FOR GERMAN, ASIAN, AND BROWN BANDED COCKROACH AND CRICKET CONTROL:

The active ingredient in NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate is an insect growth regulator. NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate acts on the immature life stages of the cockroach and cricket, preventing nymphal cockroaches and crickets from developing into reproductive adults. Shortly after application of this concentrate cockroaches with twisted wings will begin to appear, indicating that NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate has taken effect-those cockroaches with twisted wings are unable to reproduce. NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate eliminates the cockroach and cricket population when used as directed. One treatment works for 6 months against hatching cockroaches, nymphs and crickets.

If high populations of adult cockroaches are present, the use of an adulticide may be necessary for immediate control. NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate causes a gradual reduction in the cockroach population by breaking the life cycle of the cockroach and preventing the cockroaches from breeding. This concentrate may also be combined with a cockroach adulticide. NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate complements the rapid activity of the adulticide by providing long term control of cockroach nymphs before they become reproductive adults.

GENERAL SURFACE APPLICATIONS: Apply diluted spray at a rate of 85 fl. oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. For treatment of food processing and food handling establishments, apply with a sprayer that will give coarse, wet droplets. Spray surfaces, into cracks and crevices in walls and floors, under and between pallets, areas at the base of machinery and equipment, under furniture, in mop and equipment closets, behind cabinets, under shelves and racks, around pipes and openings in floors and walls, along baseboards, in wall voids, and other areas where insects seek harborage. Contact as many insects as possible. Repeat application in 90 days.

SPOT AND CRACK AND CREVICE APPLICATIONS: Apply NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate diluted spray solution using a pressurized spray system capable of delivering a pinpoint or variable spray pattern. Crack and crevice applications may be made directly to areas such as crevices, baseboards, floors, ceilings, walls, expansion joints, molding, areas around water and sewer pipes, voids where pests can hide and similar areas. Spot treatments may also be made to areas including storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors and windows, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, stoves and other equipment, shelves, drawers and similar areas.

FOGGING APPLICATIONS: NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate may be applied as a fog or an ultra-low volume (ULV) application with equipment such as ULV equipment, mechanical misting sprayers, aerosol generators, or thermal foggers. To prepare the fogging solution, follow the equipment manufacturer’s solution preparation instructions. For fogging applications, NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate may be diluted with water or petroleum distillate. Apply at a rate of 1 fl. oz. of NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate diluted in appropriate carrier per 8,000 cu. ft. Fogging applications are recommended for larger facilities including food and non-food warehouses. Close area to be treated and shut off all ventilation systems. Apply the product in the air and direct fog or mist toward all areas that may harbor target pests. After treatment, leave the room closed for 30 minutes or longer as recommended by the equipment manufacturer or the labels of other products applied in tank mixing. Do not remain in treated area. Ventilate thoroughly before reentry.

FOR CONTROL OF LITTER BEETLES (such as Darkling, Hide and Carrion Beetles):

NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate can be applied to litter, such as in poultry houses infested with Litter Beetles, to break the lifecycle of these insect pests. Make uniform application of NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate to litter at the rate of 1 fl. oz. of NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate per 1,000 sq. ft. space in sufficient volume of water to achieve thorough coverage. For effective prevention of beetle larvae in litter, remove animals from immediate treatment area and old litter. Surface treat immediately after animals are removed and again just prior to new animal placement is most effective. Adult egg-laying beetles can be killed with fast-acting adulticides. Application of adulticides to walls and floors at cleanout, before reintroduction of animals, will suppress beetles that escaped earlier treatment and will help delay onset of future infestations. Pay attention to areas where beetles frequently occur, such as walls, supports, cages, stalls and around feeders. Cover or remove exposed food, feed, water and watering equipment.

Apply NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate uniformly at the rate of 1 fl. oz. of NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate per 1,000 sq. ft. to floor area and to walls, posts, and cage framing (birds grown in cages only). Application should also be made into cracks and crevices around insulation. Reapply after each grow out or sanitization procedure. Indoor control can be enhanced by making perimeter treatments around the outside of building foundations to prevent immigrating adult beetles. Apply NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate or adulticide insecticides, or both, in a uniform band at least 1 foot up and 1-4 ft. out from foundation. Maintaining a year-round treatment program will prevent background populations from reaching problem levels.

FOR CONTROL OF FLYING INSECT PESTS (such as Flies, Moths, Midges, Mosquitoes and Gnats):

GENERAL SURFACE TREATMENTS: For control of House Flies, Stable Flies, Moths, Mosquitoes, Nuisance Flies (gnats, midges) and other similar flying pest insects such as those classified as Dipterous or Hymenopterous. NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate effects both adult and juvenile stages. In House Flies, NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate causes a decrease in the number and hatching of eggs laid by treated adults. Fly larvae (maggots) show physiological and functional defects leading to the inability to develop into normal adults. When used alone, NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate insect growth regulator will result in a reduction in adult fly populations after 3-4 weeks when previously hatched adult flies have died naturally.

NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate may be used for control of flying insect pests in those areas in, on and around residential, commercial, public, industrial and agricultural buildings. For the purposes of controlling general and occasional insect pests, NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate may be used to control nuisance flies, gnats, midges, and mosquitoes by application into moist breeding areas (potted plants, moist debris or litter) or into areas holding standing water such as gutters, drains, pools and fountains.

● Do not apply directly to any natural bodies of water such as ponds, lakes, streams, rivers, marshes, potholes, and estuaries.

● If needed, repeat treatments with NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate may be made 14 days after previous treatment or if heavy rainfall occurs repeat application.

TREATMENTS IN COMBINATION WITH AN ADULTICIDE: For knockdown and more rapid control of adult flying insect pests or to control an influx of flies from untreated areas, use NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate in alternation or in a tank mix combination with an adulticide insecticide. The combination would provide for immediate control of adult flying insects such as flies on resting surfaces such as walls and overhead areas while preventing immature insect stages from developing into adults.

TANK MIXING: NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate can be mixed with other pesticides in accordance with the most restrictive of label limitations and precautions. No label dosage rates may be exceeded. This product cannot be mixed with any product containing a label prohibition against such mixing. Prepare the tank mix using the recommended label rate of adulticide and NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate by adding the adulticide first and making sure it is well mixed and in suspension and then adding the correct amount of NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate according to the label instructions below.

Remove pets from kennels before treatment. Apply as a general surface, fogger/ULV or a crack and crevice application to areas where flying pests collect or breed.

For surface applications, thoroughly wet floors, walls, ceilings, and doors, around windows, garbage and refuse areas. When used as directed, control will be enhanced when facilities are cleaned and interior applications are supplemented with exterior perimeter treatments.

● Treat birdcages or stock pens only after removal of animals.

● Do not make interior applications of NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate in areas of facility where animals are present.

● Allow treated areas to dry before allowing animals back in treated areas of facility.

● Cover or remove exposed food, feed, water and watering equipment.

TREATMENTS TO INTERIOR AREAS AND SURFACES: Use 1 fl. oz. of NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate per gallon of water and apply to 1,500 sq. ft. of surface area or in sufficient volume to achieve adequate coverage. Treat all areas where flying insects may collect, rest or breed, including vertical walls, ceilings, pipes, conduits, stalls, stanchions, floors, and walkways. When NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate is used alone, treatments can be extended to animal bedding, manure, and other potential areas where flying insects may breed.

TREATMENTS TO PERIMETER AREAS AND SURFACES: Use 1 fl. oz. of NyGuard EZ1 IGR Concentrate per gallon of water and apply to outside surfaces of buildings, porches, patios, garages and other areas where these pests have been seen or found.
