INDOOR USE

CONTROL OF FLEAS AND TICKS

The active ingredients in Tekko™ Pro are Novaluron and Pyriproxyfen, both are insect growth regulators. Insect growth hormones are naturally occurring in insects and Tekko™ Pro prevents the adult pest from developing. These properties will gradually result in the reduction and eventual elimination of the pest population. Flea eggs and flea larvae that come into contact with Tekko™ Pro will also not develop into adult fleas. Tekko™ Pro works for up to 7 months on fleas by inhibiting the development of the immature stages of the flea and preventing them from reaching the biting adult stage. Tekko™ Pro does not work on adult fleas and flea pupae that already exist.

Note:

● If a high population of adult fleas or ticks is present, it may be necessary to use an adulticide. Tekko™ Pro may be combined with an EPA registered adulticide.

● Application of Tekko™ Pro prior to the flea and tick season will aid in reducing developing populations. Apply to areas where pets and other animals are known to frequent and where previous infestations have been known to occur to prevent the emergence of adult fleas and ticks and also control stages of fleas that don’t resemble adult fleas.

● Before treatment, vacuum carpets, draperies and upholstered furniture. Dispose of vacuum bag in an outdoor trash receptacle.

● Remove pets prior to spraying treatment area.

● After treatment, do not allow children and pets into treated areas until spray has dried.

Spray Mixing: Prepare a diluted spray solution by adding 1 fluid ounce Tekko™ Pro per gallon of water. Partially fill the mixing container with water, add Tekko™ Pro, agitate and fill to final volume. Do not allow spray mixture to stand overnight. Agitate before each use.

Use with an Adulticide Insecticide: For immediate relief of adult fleas and ticks, Tekko™ Pro may be combined with an insecticide registered for control of adult fleas and ticks. This mixture will also inhibit the development of the immature stages of the flea for up to 7 months. Follow all precautions and use directions on both products. Use at the application rate specified in the table below.

Note: Do not allow children or pets to contact treated surfaces until spray has dried.

CONTROL OF COCKROACHES AND CRICKETS

Tekko™ Pro will prevent nymphal cockroaches and crickets from developing into adults. After application, cockroaches with twisted wings will begin to appear indicating that they are unable to reproduce. When used as directed, cockroach and cricket populations will be eliminated. One treatment works for 6 months against hatching cockroaches and crickets.

If a high population of adult cockroaches are present, the use of an EPA registered adulticide may be necessary for immediate relief. Tekko™ Pro concentrate may be combined with a cockroach adulticide.

Spray Mixing: Prepare a diluted spray solution by adding 2 fluid ounces Tekko™ Pro per gallon of water. Partially fill the mixing container with water, add Tekko™ Pro, agitate and fill to the final volume. Agitate before each use. Do not allow spray mixture to stand overnight.

Use with an Adulticide Insecticide: For immediate relief of adult cockroaches, Tekko™ Pro may be combined with an insecticide registered for adult cockroach control. This mixture will also inhibit the development of the immature stages of the cockroach for up to 6 months. Follow all precautions and use directions on both products. Use at the application rate specified in the table below.

Note: This product cannot be mixed with any product containing a label prohibition against such mixing.

If large populations of adult fleas and ticks exist, treat the lawn area with an EPA registered adulticide lawn treatment product such as Cyzmic CS.

Spray Mixing: To prepare a diluted spray solution, mix 1.0 fluid ounce Tekko™ Pro in a sufficient volume of water (minimum amount of water 1 gallon), depending on spray equipment used, to cover 1,500 ft2. Partially filling the sprayer with water, add Tekko™ Pro, agitate and fill with water to the final volume. Agitate before each spray.

Use with an Adulticide Insecticide: For immediate relief of adult fleas and ticks, Tekko™ Pro may be combined with an insecticide registered for control of adult fleas and ticks. This mixture will also inhibit the development of the immature stages of the flea for up to 7 months. Follow all precautions and use directions on both products. Use at the application rate specified in the table below.

CONTROL OF FLYING INSECTS

Tekko™ Pro may be used for the 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.

General Surface Treatments: Tekko™ Pro causes a decrease in the number and hatching of eggs laid by treated adults. Fly larvae (maggots) treated with Tekko™ Pro cannot develop into normal adults. The use of Tekko™ Pro will result in a reduction in adult fly populations after 3-4 weeks, at the time when previously hatched adult flies have died naturally.

Tekko™ Pro may be used for control of flying insect pests in, on and around buildings as described in the use table. These areas include, but are not limited to residential, commercial, public, industrial and agricultural buildings. Tekko™ Pro 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.

Treatments in Combination with an Adulticide: Use Tekko™ Pro in alternation or in a tank mix combination with an adulticide insecticide for quick knockdown and more rapid control of adult flying insect pests. As an IPM strategy, combining or alternating Tekko™ Pro with other types of chemicals, such as pyrethroid or other insecticides can reduce or prevent the development of genetic resistance to these adulticide insecticides.

CONTROL OF COCKROACHES AND CRICKETS

Tekko™ Pro will prevent nymphal cockroaches and crickets from developing into adults. After application, cockroaches with twisted wings will begin to appear indicating that they are unable to reproduce. When used as directed, cockroach and cricket populations will be eliminated. One treatment works for 6 months against hatching cockroaches and crickets.

If a high population of adult cockroaches are present, the use of an EPA registered adulticide may be necessary for immediate relief. Tekko™ Pro concentrate may be combined with a cockroach adulticide.

Spray Mixing: Prepare a diluted spray solution by adding 2 fluid ounces Tekko™ Pro in a sufficient amount of water (minimum amount of water 1 gallon) to cover 1,000 ft2. Partially fill the mixing container with water, add Tekko™ Pro, agitate and fill to the final volume. Agitate before each spray. Do not allow spray mixture to stand overnight.

Use with an Adulticide Insecticide: For immediate relief of adult cockroaches, Tekko™ Pro may be combined with an insecticide registered for adult cockroach control. This mixture will also inhibit the development of the immature stages of the cockroach for up to 6 months. Follow all precautions and use directions on both products. Use at the application rate specified in the table below.

Note: This product cannot be mixed with any product containing a label prohibition against such mixing.

OTHER USES

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

Tekko™ Pro 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 Tekko™ Pro to litter at the rate of 1 oz. of product in a sufficient amount of water (minimum of 1 gallon) to cover 1,000 ft2 using a low pressure sprayer or similar applicator to achieve thorough coverage.

Remove the old litter and animals from immediate treatment area. Make surface treatment immediately after animals are removed and again just prior to new animal placement, making sure to treat areas where beetles frequently occur, such as walls, supports, cages, stalls and around feeders. Application of EPA registered adulticides, to kill adult egg-laying beetles, to walls and floors at cleanout and before reintroduction of animals, will suppress beetles that escaped earlier treatment and will help delay onset of future infestations. Cover or remove exposed food, feed, water and watering equipment.

Apply Tekko™ Pro 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. Make perimeter treatments around the outside of building foundations to prevent immigrating adult beetles. Apply N + P Regulator or EPA registered adulticide insecticides, or both, in a uniform band at least 1 foot up and 1-4 feet out from foundation. To maintain population control, it is advisable to maintain a year-round treatment program.
