Environmental Hazards

This pesticide is extremely toxic to aquatic organisms, including fish and invertebrates. To protect the environment, do not allow pesticide to enter or run off into storm drains, drainage ditches, gutters or surface waters. Applying this product in calm weather when rain is not predicted for the next 24 hours will help to ensure that wind or rain does not blow or wash pesticide off the treatment area.

Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)

Applicators and other handlers must wear: Long-sleeved shirt and long pants, Shoes, socks and Chemical-resistant gloves made of any waterproof material.

User Safety Requirements

Follow manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning/maintaining PPE. If no such instructions for washables exist, use detergent and hot water. Keep and wash PPE separately from other laundry. Discard clothing and other absorbent materials that have been drenched or heavily contaminated with this product’s concentrate. Do not reuse them.

User Safety Recommendations

User should remove clothing/PPE immediately if pesticides get inside. Then wash thoroughly and put on clean clothing.

Directions For Use

For optimum control and to minimize development of insect resistance, use two tags per animal (one in each ear). All animals in the herd should be tagged. Apply when flies first appear in the spring. Replace as necessary. Apply with ALLFLEX®* Tagging System. Tags remain effective up to 5 months. Remove tags in the fall.

Continual exposure of horn flies to a single class of insecticides (eg. pyrethroids or organophosphates) may lead to the development of resistance to that class of insecticides. In order to reduce the possibility of horn flies developing resistance, it is important to rotate the class of insecticide used and/or the method of horn fly control on a seasonal basis. For advice concerning current control practices with relation to specific local conditions, consult resources in resistive management programs and/or your Cooperative Agricultural Extension Service.

Storage And Disposal

Do not contaminate water, food, or feed by storage or disposal.

Pesticide Storage: Store in cool place away from direct sunlight. Pesticide Disposal: Remove tags before slaughter. Tags may be disposed of on site or at an approved waste disposal facility. Container Disposal: Nonrefillable container. Do not reuse or refill this container.
