IN ANIMAL QUARTERS AND MILK ROOMS: For rapid control of House Flies, Mosquitoes, Gnats, Wasps, Hornets, Bees and Small-Flying Moths. Remove animals prior to treatment, close windows and doors and spray at the rate of 2 seconds per 1000 cubic feet of space. For best results, keep area closed for 10 minutes after spraying. Do not remain in treated area and ventilate after treatment is completed.

TO TREAT LIVESTOCK: To protect beef cattle, dairy cattle, goats, sheep, hogs and horses from attacks of Stable Flies, Horse Flies, Deer Flies, Face Flies, House Flies, Horn Flies, Mosquitoes, and Gnats: Spray about 3 seconds on each side being careful to spray back, withers and forelegs thoroughly. To protect from Face Flies, spray the face and head, but do not spray into the eyes. Repeat treatment when flies are troublesome. For ear ticks spray directly into ear.

WOUND SPRAY AND TO KILL SCREW WORMS, FLIES AND MAGGOTS infesting beef cattle, horses and sheep, hold can about 4 to 8 inches from the area to be treated with nozzle pointed at wound. Spray the area until it is completely wet (3 to 10 seconds are usually enough). The area surrounding the wound should also be sprayed. This product is not recommended for use in deep wounds. Some strains of screw worm may develop resistance to pyrethroids. This will be observed by lack of response to treatment. Where pyrethroid resistance is known or suspected, this product should not be used.
