GENERAL INFORMATION

NyGuard® IGR Concentrate is a non-repellent Juvenile Hormone (JH) Mimic.

It disrupts the normal development of the immature life stages of listed insects, with either complete or incomplete metamorphosis, preventing successful development of the adult stage. Depending upon the insect species and life stage at the time of exposure, the observed results can include: decreased egg viability, sterile adult insects incapable of reproduction, suspension of insect in immature life stages, reduced fitness of insect, behavioral changes, reduced egg production, morphological defects-deformed insects and death. When used in an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program, NyGuard® IGR Concentrate breaks the reproductive cycle of listed insects and aids in the prevention of insect resistance.

For best results, follow directions for specific use areas.

Do not use this product in or on electrical equipment due to possibility of shock hazard.

Avoid excessive wetting of carpet, draperies and furniture.

STAINING: NyGuard® IGR Concentrate is generally non-staining. If staining is a concern, test final spray solution in an inconspicuous area prior to use, as some fibers or surfaces (such as vinyl siding) may be adversely affected by an application of this, or any liquid product.

Prior to using in commercial or residential food areas, please refer to the Food Handling Establishment Applications section of the label. The preparations prior to treatment and the cleanup after application described are also to be followed for residential use.

In hospitals, nursing homes or in any rooms occupied by the elderly or infirm, remove patients before treating rooms. If application is done as a surface spray, or crack and crevice application, patients may re-enter once the spray has dried. If application is a ULV fog or space spray, patients may return to the room after it has been thoroughly ventilated.

In institutions (including libraries, sports facilities, etc.) applications may be made while the facility is in use, provided treatment is not made in the immediate area where people are present.

USE IN LIVESTOCK, POULTRY AND ANIMAL PRODUCTION

FOR CONTROL OF INSECT PESTS IN AND AROUND DAIRIES, LIVESTOCK, POULTRY AND OTHER ANIMAL HOUSING AND FACILITIES (including kennels, animal shelters, stables and zoos)

NyGuard® IGR Concentrate may be used by pest control professionals and livestock producers (including poultry) in, on and around animal housing and facilities to control listed flying insect pests. NyGuard® IGR Concentrate mimics naturally occurring insect growth hormones, disrupting the reproductive processes of listed insects, resulting in reduced egg production, reduced egg hatch rates, disruption or inhibition of normal molting processes, deformity, sterile adults and death. NyGuard® IGR Concentrate effectively breaks the cycle of insect reproduction. It is an important component in an IPM program, and is a means to prevent or manage known resistant insect populations, such as Tempo® resistant flies. Used as directed, NyGuard® IGR Concentrate will not harm beneficial insects such as predatory wasps.

Apply as a spot treatment; general surface broadcast treatment, ULV/ fog, spot or crack and crevice application to interior and exterior areas where insect pests collect, travel, rest, hide, harbor or breed. Apply when animals are not in the immediate area being treated. Animals may reenter treated area once spray solution has thoroughly dried. Do not contaminate food, feed, potable water or watering equipment.

RATES TO CONTROL MOSQUITOES AND OTHER FLYING INSECTS

NyGuard® IGR Concentrate effects on both adult and juvenile insect stages. It decreases the number of eggs laid by treated adults and reduces hatch rates. Larvae (maggots) show physiological and functional defects leading to the inability to develop into normal adults. When used alone treatment will result in a reduction in adult fly populations after 3-4 weeks, when previously hatched adult flies have died naturally. For faster results, NyGuard® IGR Concentrate may be tank mixed with an adulticide. Apply alone or tank mixed with an adulticide at the rate of 4 ml per 1,500 square feet of surface area in sufficient volume of water to thoroughly wet the surface, although not to the point that runoff occurs. Use up to 12 ml of concentrate per 1,500 square feet of surface for insect populations that are difficult to control or in conditions that make it difficult to achieve desired results.

RATES TO CONTROL LISTED CRAWLING INSECTS

Apply NyGuard® IGR Concentrate alone or tank mixed with an adulticide at the rate of 4 ml per 1,500 square feet of surface in sufficient volume of water to thoroughly wet the surface, although not to the point that runoff occurs. Use up to 12 ml of concentrate per 1,500 square feet of surface for insect populations that are difficult to control or in conditions that make it difficult to achieve desired results.

Space Spray, Void Injection, ULV and Fog Application: Read and follow the “ULV AND FOGGING APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS, INCLUDING SPACE SPRAY AND VOID INJECTION” in the General Application Instructions section of the label. NyGuard® IGR Concentrate may be applied with a ULV generator or fogger at a rate of 1 ml per 1,000 cubic feet. If used alone, dilute concentrate with water at the rate of 1 ml of concentrate with 1 fl. oz. of water, and fog solution at a rate of 1 fl. oz. per 1,000 cubic feet. When tank mixing with a pyrethrum fogging concentrate, mix NyGuard® IGR Concentrate directly with the pyrethrum fogging concentrate solution. Do not remain in treated area after fogging. Keep facility closed for 1 hour and thoroughly ventilate prior to re-entry.

INTERIOR AND PERIMETER APPLICATION DIRECTIONS

Inspect and identify harborage and breeding areas. Treat all interior areas where crawling insects may collect, travel, rest, hide, harbor or breed, including vertical walls, ceilings, posts, pipes, conduit, around doors and windows, cages, stalls, stanchions, floors, under watering equipment and feeders, cracks and crevices along floors, animal bedding, manure and other known or potential breeding sites. Control will be enhanced when facilities are cleaned and interior applications are supplemented with exterior perimeter treatments. Apply solution to exterior perimeter of facility in a uniform band at least 1 foot up and 6 to 10 feet out from foundation. Apply around the exterior surfaces of doors and windows, overhead areas and other potential points of harborage or entry. If there are raised floors with soil or debris beneath them, be sure to treat the area beneath the floor.

EXTERIOR AND OUTDOOR APPLICATION DIRECTIONS

Inspect and identify known or suspected harborage and breeding areas. Treat known or potential exterior breeding sites such as garbage bins or refuse piles, around grain or feed storage facilities, soil and vegetation in fence lines, compost piles, manure piles, beneath watering equipment or feeders, in, around and under calf hutches, in and beneath outdoor cages, in corrals, farmyards and feed lots.

Reapply every 30 days, or when target insect populations return to economic threshold levels.

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

NyGuard® IGR Concentrate can be applied to litter, such as in poultry houses infested with Litter Beetles, to break the life cycle of these insect pests. When used as directed, NyGuard® IGR Concentrate will not harm beneficial insects in animal litter or bedding, such as predatory wasps. Make uniform application of NyGuard® IGR Concentrate to litter at the rate of 4 ml of NyGuard® IGR Concentrate per 1,500 square feet of surface in sufficient volume of water to thoroughly wet the surface, although not to the point that runoff occurs. Use up to 12 ml of concentrate per 1,500 square feet of surface for insect populations that are difficult to control or in conditions that make it difficult to achieve desired results.

For effective prevention of beetle larvae in litter, remove animals from immediate treatment area and old litter. Surface treatments immediately after animals are removed and again just prior to new animal placement are most effective. Adult egg-laying beetles can be killed with an adulticide such as Onslaught® Microencapsulated Insecticide. Application of adulticide 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.

Apply NyGuard® IGR Concentrate uniformly 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® IGR Concentrate or adulticide insecticides, or both, in a uniform band at least 1 foot up and 6 to 10 feet out from foundation. Maintaining a year-round treatment program will prevent background populations from reaching problem levels.

USE AS A MOSQUITO LARVICIDE

● Not for use in natural holding waters or active waterways.

● Not for wide area mosquito use. Do not apply using truck mounted sprayers or aerial application equipment.

● Active only on the immature life stages of mosquitoes. Tank mix or use with an adulticide for immediate kill of biting (adult) mosquitoes.

RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL SITES

Apply using a backpack sprayer, ULV cold fogger, compressed air sprayer, power sprayer, or handheld sprayer at a rate of 4 to 8 ml of NyGuard® IGR Concentrate per 1,500 sq. ft. in sufficient amount of water to get good coverage of target site. Use up to 12 ml per 1,500 square feet for insect populations that are difficult to control or in conditions that make it difficult to get control of target pests. Alternate mixing instructions are 16-48 ml of concentrate per 50 gallons of water. Treat moist, shady areas where mosquitoes rest, harbor or breed, such as trees, shrubs, landscape plants, tall grass or plant foliage, non-drinkable standing water, gutters, drains, under decks, in-ground sprinkler heads, pet areas, fountains, birdbaths, landscape timbers, rocks, pavers, planters and fences. Tank mix NyGuard® IGR Concentrate with an adulticide to get immediate control of the biting adult stages, while inhibiting successful development of immature stages. Monitor insect emergence and re-apply every 28 days, or when insect populations reach treatment threshold levels.

GENERAL MIXING INSTRUCTIONS:

Mix concentrate with water and apply with equipment capable of delivering coarse wetting surface spray, fogging (space spray/mist), spot, crack and crevice spray applications, professional foam applicator or with a paintbrush, roller or similar device. Partially fill the sprayer with water, add required amount of concentrate in sprayer, agitate and fill to final volume. Agitate before each spray.

Tank mixing: NyGuard® IGR Concentrate may be tank mixed with other registered pest control products, unless either product label prohibits tank mixing. Use the resulting tank mixture in accordance with the more restrictive label limitations and precautions of the mixed products. Make applications in accordance with those label instructions that are consistent for each product. To prepare the tank mix, add the tank mix partner first and make sure it is well mixed and in suspension, then add the correct amount of NyGuard® IGR Concentrate according to the label instructions below.

Do not tank mix with Vapona or Malathion. These products are antagonistic to NyGuard® IGR Concentrate’s active ingredient.

General Application Instructions: Use NyGuard® IGR Concentrate both indoors and outdoors as a general surface spray, ULV/fog or space spray application, spot treatment or crack and crevice application. Application may be made using power sprayers, hand pump sprayers, void injectors, in carpet shampoo, using a paintbrush, roller, professional foam applicator, or similar device.

Surface Applications: Apply diluted spray as a spot treatment, broadcast surface application and crack and crevice spray. Thoroughly treat areas where insects travel, breed, rest, hide or harbor. Special attention should be paid to applying spray solution to harborage and hiding places where conditions support insect population growth and reproduction.

ULV AND FOGGING APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS, INCLUDING SPACE SPRAY AND VOID INJECTION

NyGuard® IGR Concentrate may be applied as a fog or an ultra-low volume (ULV) application with equipment such as foggers, ULV equipment, mechanical misting sprayers or aerosol generators. To prepare the fogging solution, follow the equipment manufacturer’s solution preparation instructions. For fogging applications, NyGuard® IGR Concentrate may be diluted with water or an approved petroleum distillate. Apply at a rate of 1 ml of NyGuard® IGR Concentrate per 1,000 cubic feet of space to be treated. Remove all persons from the area to be treated. Close area to be treated. Shut off 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 labels of other products that may be tank mixed with NyGuard® IGR Concentrate. Do not remain in treated area after fogging application is completed. Ventilate before re-entry.

To treat voids in equipment and structures with ULV and fog injection systems (void injectors): Apply to harborage sites in wall voids and other inaccessible spaces in equipment and structures using injection equipment designed for deep void ULV (Ultra Low Volume) applications. Follow the injection equipment manufacturer’s recommendations for the proper set up and air pressures. Place the applicator tip at or into the void space or crack and crevice to be treated. Apply in short bursts while keeping the tip in position. Allow the air stream to push the material deep into the space. For applications along baseboards, trim, molding, etc. move applicator tip along the crevice to be treated, applying a constant burst of material. Move the tip at a steady rate of one foot per second. Avoid applying to the point of runoff or drip. Ventilate area thoroughly before re-entry.

FOOD HANDLING ESTABLISHMENT APPLICATIONS

Apply NyGuard® IGR Concentrate as a general surface spray, space spray, spot and/or crack and crevice treatment in both food and non-food areas of food handling establishments where food and food products are held, processed, prepared and served. It also includes areas where food items are: received, prepared, packaged, and stored, as well as enclosed food processing systems (mills, dairies, etc.). Prior to application, remove or cover all food items in area to be treated. Do not apply directly to food or food-handling surfaces. In the home all food-processing surfaces and utensils should be covered during treatment or thoroughly washed before use. Food contact surfaces should be thoroughly washed with an effective cleaning compound and rinsed with potable water after use of the product.

SPOT OR CRACK & CREVICE APPLICATION

Since active ingredient is stable and not volatile, spot, and/or crack and crevice treatment may be used while the facility is in operation, provided exposed food is covered or removed from the area being treated prior to application.

SPACE SPRAY AND GENERAL SURFACE APPLICATION

Space and general surface application may be used only when the facility is not in operation provided exposed food is covered or removed from the area being treated prior to application.

PANTRY/CABINETS, SMALL FOOD STORAGE AREAS

Apply as a surface spray, fog, crack and crevice spray, or spot treatment to pantry and cupboard shelves or other areas where food is stored. Prior to spraying, remove all food containers and foodstuffs. Do not replace food containers or foodstuffs until spray has dried.

STORED FOOD WAREHOUSES

Apply NyGuard® IGR Concentrate as a general surface spray, fog, spot, or crack and crevice treatment in warehouses where packaged food items are stored in such a way that direct contact with the foodstuff is not anticipated.

Integrated Pest Management in Schools

The health of school residents and long-term suppression of pests must be the primary objectives that guide pest control in school settings. To accomplish these objectives an IPM program must always look for alternatives first and use pesticides only as a last resort.

There are many chemical products to choose from that are relatively benign to the larger environment and at the same time effective against target pests.

Consult the EPA Document: IPM for Schools: A How-to Manual to learn more. This and other resource materials are available at www.epa.gov/pesticides/ipm/.

NyGuard® IGR Concentrate may be used in schools and day care facilities. Unless it is an emergency situation, applications should be performed when only maintenance staff are present and the building is otherwise unoccupied. Do not apply to classrooms while in use.

Vacate rooms prior to treatment. If application is a surface spray, spot or crack and crevice application, re-entry may occur once the spray has dried. If application is a ULV fog or space spray, re-entry may occur after the treated area has been thoroughly ventilated.

Always consult federal, state and local governing bodies to understand any and all requirements prior to application.

FOR INDOOR AND OUTDOOR CONTROL OF LISTED FLYING INSECTS SUCH AS MOTHS, MOSQUITOES, FLIES AND SMALL NUISANCE FLIES:

NyGuard® IGR Concentrate decreases the number of eggs laid by treated adults and reduces hatch rates. Larvae show physiological and functional defects leading to the inability to develop into normal adults. When used alone, treatment will result in a reduction in adult fly populations after 3 to 4 weeks, when previously hatched adult flies have died naturally. Apply spray dilution to known and suspected breeding sites (such as moist areas with decaying organic matter), as well as areas where these insects are known to travel, rest, hide or harbor. Make application following cleaning and sanitation practices. Tank mix NyGuard® IGR Concentrate with an adulticide to get immediate control of adult stages while inhibiting successful development of immature stages. Monitor insect population and repeat applications at 2 to 4 week intervals, if necessary, depending upon the severity of infestation. If application is being made in food areas, read and follow the “FOOD HANDLING ESTABLISHMENT APPLICATIONS” instructions in the label.

General Surface Application (including Broadcast, Spot and Crack & Crevice): Apply NyGuard® IGR Concentrate in a surface application at the rate of 4 ml in one gallon of water (or sufficient volume of water to get adequate coverage) to treat 1,500 square feet. Use up to 12 ml per 1,500 square feet for insect populations that are difficult to control or in conditions that make it difficult to get control of target pests. Apply solution as a coarse, wetting spray to breeding and harborage sites. For drains, apply dilution into and around the drain and catch basin area. When possible, treat vertical surfaces surrounding breeding sites, where small flies tend to alight.

Space Spray, Void Injection, ULV and Fog Application: Read and follow the “ULV AND FOGGING APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS, INCLUDING SPACE SPRAY AND VOID INJECTION” in the General Application Instructions section of the label. To achieve uniform coverage apply NyGuard® IGR Concentrate as a ULV or fogging treatment, alone or tank mixed with an adulticide. Apply at the rate of 1 ml of concentrate per 1,000 cu. ft. of space to be treated. Direct application to areas where insects are known to travel, rest, hide or harbor.

Foam Application: For the control of Drain/Fruit Flies, combine NyGuard® IGR Concentrate at the rate of 4 to 8 ml concentrate with one gallon of diluent. To convert this diluent to a foam, add foaming agent at the manufacturer’s recommended rate. Using a professional foam applicator, apply finished foam to areas of fly breeding such as drains, traps of sinks, bathtubs and in floor drains. For best results, foam should be applied thoroughly, ensuring all void areas and fly breeding material is treated. Follow the requirements of the foam equipment manufacturer.

Outdoor Application: Apply as a surface application (including Broadcast, Spot and Crack & Crevice) at the rate of 4 ml in one gallon of water (or sufficient volume of water to get adequate coverage) to treat 1,000 square feet. Use up to 12 ml per 1,000 square feet for insect populations that are difficult to control or in conditions that make it difficult to get control of target pests. Alternate mixing directions for power spraying are to use 18 to 56 ml of concentrate per 50 gallons of water. Apply to surfaces where insects breed, travel, rest, hide or harbor. Treat known and suspected breeding sites on, under and around exterior surfaces of buildings, walls, window frames, around garbage cans, eaves, cracks and crevices, porches, decks, gazebos, patios, carports, garages, stagnant water, moist/shaded areas, fence lines, and other areas where target insects are active or may be hiding. Since NyGuard® IGR Concentrate is photo-stable, outdoor applications on soil surfaces will provide residual IGR activity, depending upon soil type and weather conditions.

FOR INDOOR AND OUTDOOR CONTROL OF LISTED CRAWLING INSECTS SUCH AS FLEAS, LONE STAR TICKS, BEETLES AND OTHER LISTED INSECTS:

NyGuard® IGR Concentrate breaks the reproductive cycle by acting on the immature life stages of fleas, lone star ticks, beetles and other crawling insects, preventing the successful development of adult insects. Flea eggs and flea larvae that contact treated areas will not develop into adult fleas. NyGuard® IGR Concentrate reduces egg production and hatch and inhibits the oviposition (laying of eggs) by engorged lone star tick nymphs. NyGuard® IGR Concentrate is a valuable component of an integrated program to control fleas, beetles, lone star ticks and other crawling insects. If application is being made in food areas, read and follow the “FOOD HANDLING ESTABLISHMENT APPLICATIONS” instructions in the label.

PREVENTATIVE FLEA TREATMENT: NyGuard® IGR Concentrate can be used as a preventative treatment 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 reduce the emergence of adult fleas and also control immature stages of fleas. Indoor treatments of NyGuard® IGR Concentrate provide up to 7 months of residual flea control, so this early usage could reduce the need for conventional insecticides when used alone as directed. Apply as a surface application at the rate of 4 to 8 ml in one gallon of water (or sufficient volume of water to get adequate coverage) to treat 1,500 square feet.

TREATING ESTABLISHED INFESTATIONS

General Surface Application (including Broadcast, Spot and Crack & Crevice): Apply as a surface application at the rate of 4 ml in one gallon of water (or sufficient volume of water to get adequate coverage) to treat 1,500 square feet. Use up to 12 ml per 1,500 square feet for insect populations that are difficult to control or in conditions that make it difficult to get control of target pests. Treat all areas that may harbor target insects, such as carpets, furniture, pet sleeping areas and throw rugs. Treat under cushions of upholstered furniture. Use with an adulticide to get immediate control of adult insects. Do not allow children or pets to contact treated surfaces until spray has thoroughly dried.

In Conjunction with Carpet Shampoo: NyGuard® IGR Concentrate may be combined with a liquid, non-heat extracting, carpet shampoo application. Mix 4 ml of NyGuard® IGR Concentrate per gallon of diluted shampoo to be applied to carpet. Mix well and shampoo carpet as per instructions on the shampoo product label. Allow carpet to completely dry and vacuum thoroughly.

In Kennels and Doghouses: Apply as a surface application (including Broadcast, Spot and Crack & Crevice) at the rate of 4 ml in one gallon of water (or sufficient volume of water to get adequate coverage) to treat 1,500 square feet. Use up to 12 ml per 1,500 square feet for insect populations that are difficult to control or in conditions that make it difficult to get control of target pests. Remove animals before spraying. Apply in and around buildings, resting areas, walls, floor, animal bedding and run areas. Animals may be returned to treated areas when spray has thoroughly dried.

Space Spray, Void Injection, ULV and Fog Application: Read and follow the “ULV AND FOGGING APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS, INCLUDING SPACE SPRAY AND VOID INJECTION” in the General Application Instructions section of the label. To achieve uniform coverage apply NyGuard® IGR Concentrate as a ULV or fogging treatment, alone or tank mixed with an adulticide. Apply at the rate of 1 ml of concentrate per 1,000 cu. ft. of space to be treated. Direct application to areas where target insects are known to travel, rest, hide or harbor.

Outdoor Application: Apply as a surface application (including Broadcast, Spot and Crack & Crevice) at the rate of 4 ml in one gallon of water (or sufficient volume of water to get adequate coverage) to treat 1,000 square feet. Use up to 12 ml per 1,000 square feet for insect populations that are difficult to control or in conditions that make it difficult to get control of target pests. Alternate mixing directions for power spraying are to use 18 to 56 ml of concentrate per 50 gallons of water. Remove animals before spraying. Apply to listed outdoor areas where target insects are suspected or known to breed, travel, rest, hide or harbor. To help prevent insect infestation of buildings: Treat building exteriors, foundations and soil or other substrate adjacent to buildings. Application on soil surfaces will provide 30 to 60 days of IGR activity, depending upon insect type, soil type and weather conditions.

FOR CONTROL OF LISTED COCKROACHES, CRICKETS:

NyGuard® IGR Concentrate acts on the immature life stages and prevents nymphal cockroaches and crickets from developing into reproductive adults. Shortly after application of this concentrate, cockroaches with twisted wings and other deformities will begin to appear, indicating that NyGuard® IGR Concentrate has taken effect-those cockroaches are unable to reproduce. May be used in a program with cockroach baits such as Vendetta® Cockroach Gel Bait. One treatment works for 6 months against cockroach nymphs and crickets. If application is being made in food areas, read and follow the “FOOD HANDLING ESTABLISHMENT APPLICATIONS” instructions in the label.

General Surface Application (including Broadcast, Spot and Crack & Crevice): Apply as a surface application at the rate of 12 ml in one gallon of water to treat 1,500 square feet. Apply diluted spray as a spot treatment, surface application and crack and crevice spray. Treat all areas where target insects are known or suspected to travel, rest, hide or harbor. Tank mix with an adulticide to provide immediate control of adult stages. Contact as many insects as possible with this spray. Special attention should be paid to hiding places such as beneath sinks, behind and beneath stoves and refrigerators, cracks and crevices, around garbage cans, cabinets, along the outside of baseboards, door and window sills, door and window frames and floors, around and on drains, pipes, plumbing, behind bookcases, storage and other utility installation areas, and the inside of cabinets and closets hitting insects with spray whenever possible. Repeat application in 6 months, or more frequently if necessary.

Space Spray, Void Injection, ULV and Fog Application: Read and follow the “ULV AND FOGGING APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS, INCLUDING SPACE SPRAY AND VOID INJECTION” in the General Application Instructions section of the label. To achieve uniform coverage apply NyGuard® IGR Concentrate as a ULV or fogging treatment, alone or tank mixed with an adulticide. Apply at the rate of 1 ml of concentrate per 1,000 cu. ft. of space to be treated. Direct application to areas where insects are known to travel, rest, hide or harbor.

Outdoor Application: Apply as a surface application (including Broadcast, Spot and Crack & Crevice) at the rate of 12 ml of concentrate in one gallon of water (or sufficient volume of water to get adequate coverage) to treat 1,500 square feet. For building perimeter applications, apply in a band 2-6 feet adjacent to and around the structure and apply to a height of 2-3 feet on the foundation where pests may be active or may find entrance. Apply spray on, around and beneath window frames, doors, garage doors, patios, decks, turf, landscaping, compost areas, garbage areas and other areas where target insects travel, feed, rest, hide or harbor. Alternate mixing directions for outdoor power spraying are to use 56 ml of concentrate per 50 gallons of water.

FOR CONTROL OF ANTS:

General Surface Application Indoors: NyGuard® IGR Concentrate may be used as part of an integrated approach to control ants. Apply broadcast, spot or crack and crevice treatments of NyGuard® IGR Concentrate at the rate of 12 ml diluted in water per 1,500 square feet to interior areas where ants are actively foraging and traveling. May be used in conjunction with baits and/or residual treatments. If application is being made in food areas, read and follow the “FOOD HANDLING ESTABLISHMENT APPLICATIONS” instructions in the label.

Outdoor Application: Apply as an outdoor surface application (including Broadcast, Spot and Crack & Crevice) at the rate of 12 ml of concentrate in one gallon of water (or sufficient volume of water to get adequate coverage) to treat 1,500 square feet. Alternate mixing directions for outdoor power spraying are to use 56 ml of concentrate per 50 gallons of water. For building perimeter applications, apply in a band 2-6 feet adjacent to and around the structure and apply to a height of 2-3 feet on the foundation where ants may travel or find entrance. Apply directly to known or suspected ant forage, trails and forage sites. Treat ant mounds or nests directly, with a wetting spray. NyGuard® IGR Concentrate may be used in a program with baits or in a tank mix combination with adulticide insecticide.

FOR CONTROL OF LISTED STORED PRODUCT PESTS:

(including Indian Meal Moths, Rice Moths, Tobacco Moths, Red Flour Beetles, Confused Flour Beetles, Lesser Grain Borers, Merchant Grain Beetles, Sawtoothed Grain Beetles, Warehouse Beetles, Cigarette Beetles, Dermestid Beetles). If application is being made in food areas, read and follow the “FOOD HANDLING ESTABLISHMENT APPLICATIONS” instructions in the label.

General Surface Application (including Broadcast, Spot and Crack & Crevice): Apply as a surface application at the rate of 8 ml in one gallon of water to treat 1,500 square feet. Use up to 12 ml per 1,500 square feet for insect populations that are difficult to control or in conditions that make it difficult to get control of target pests. Apply diluted spray as a spot treatment, surface application and crack and crevice spray. Treat all areas where target insects are known or suspected to travel, rest, hide or harbor such as 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, behind and under refrigerators, sinks, stoves, drawers under shelves and racks, around pipes and openings in floors and walls, along baseboards, in wall voids, and other areas where insects seek harborage. Since NyGuard® IGR Concentrate is stable and not volatile, spot, and/or crack and crevice treatment may be used while a food processing facility is in operation, provided exposed food is covered or removed from the area being treated prior to application. Tank mix with an adulticide to provide immediate control of adult stages. Contact as many insects as possible. Repeat application in 6 months, or more frequently if necessary.

Space Spray, Void Injection, ULV and Fog Application: Read and follow the “ULV AND FOGGING APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS, INCLUDING SPACE SPRAY AND VOID INJECTION” in the General Application Instructions section of the label. To achieve uniform coverage apply NyGuard® IGR Concentrate as a ULV or fogging treatment, alone or tank mixed with an adulticide. Apply at the rate of 1 ml of concentrate per 1,000 cu. ft. of space to be treated. Direct application to areas where insects are known to travel, rest, hide or harbor.
