Directions For Use

SNIP Fly Bait is a new fly bait formula containing a house fly sex attractant which encourages both male and female house flies to remain in the treated area, thereby feeding on the bait. Bait should be scattered over fly feeding areas and places where flies are known to congregate daily, or as needed to provide initial knockdown and reduction of house fly populations. Scatter bait at a rate of 250 g per 100 m2 from a container or other device to avoid handling bait. Bait may also be used in hanging or stationary tamper-resistant bait boxes in locations not accessible to children, pets, domestic animals or wildlife. When used in areas accessible to birds, bait must be placed in a bait station which prevents birds from consuming the bait. SNIP Fly Bait should be used as part of an integrated pest management program for house flies.

Areas Of Use

May be used in agricultural buildings (e.g. barns, poultry houses, etc.) in areas where house flies congregate such as window sills and near animal pens providing the bait is kept out of reach of animals. Do not use on walkways used by animals.


KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN, PETS, DOMESTIC ANIMALS AND WILDLIFE. Harmful if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Wear chemical-resistant gloves during application. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Wash arms, hands, and face with soap and water after handling and before eating or smoking. Do not contaminate feed, water, food or litter through application or disposal of product. Do not apply bait where animals can pick it up or lick the product. Do not place in piles. Prevent accidental transfer of the product, by people or animals, from treated areas to areas used by livestock. Shoes should always be cleaned to remove granules before leaving treated areas.

This product is toxic to fish and wildlife. Keep out of lakes, streams or ponds. Do not contaminate water by cleaning of equipment or surfaces, or by the disposal of wastes.

Resistance Management

For resistance management, azamethiphos is a Group 1B insecticide, Any house fly population may contain individuals naturally resistant to azamethiphos and other Group 1B insecticides. The resistant individuals can dominate the house fly population if these insecticides are used repeatedly. These resistant house flies will not be controlled by azamethiphos or other Group 1B insecticides. To delay insecticide resistance, avoid exclusive, repeated use of Snip Fly Bait or other Group 1B insecticides. Keep accurate records of insecticides used in your operation. Keep the house fly population as low as possible by manure management.

FIRST AID INSTRUCTIONS: If in eyes, flush with water for 15 minutes. If irritation persists, seek medical attention or contact a poison control centre. If on skin, wash affected area thoroughly with soap and water. If swallowed, give patient one or two glasses of water and induce vomiting by touching back of throat with a finger or blunt object; repeat until vomitus is clear. Do not induce vomiting or give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Seek medical attention or contact Poison Control Centre immediately. Take container, label or product name and Pest Control Product Registration number with you when seeking medical attention.
