Specific Use Directions

Listed Flying Insect Pests in and Around Livestock and Poultry Premises:

For residual control of listed flying insects, treat insect resting areas such as walls, ceilings, screens, around windows, doors, gates, cages, light fixtures, under slats, known insect breeding/egg deposit areas and other surfaces that attract flying insects. Initiate treatments at the beginning of fly season and repeat treatments during periods of heavy infestation. Treatments can be made both indoors and outdoors but animals cannot be present at the time of application.

Listed Crawling Insect Pests in and Around Livestock and Poultry Premises:

Apply as a general surface, spot treatment, and/or crack and crevice treatment. Apply to floors, vertical and overhead surfaces where crawling insects are or may be present. Treat stanchions, pipes, windows, doors, posts, cage framing, gates, under (but not in) feeders and waterers, and other areas where insects hide or congregate. To reduce immigration of insects, make a perimeter treatment around the outside of building foundations. Apply in a uniform band 1 to 3 feet up the exterior foundation wall and 3 to 6 feet out from the foundation. May also be injected into wall voids.

Litter Beetle Control in Poultry Premises:

Tobex Multi MoA Concentrate controls darkling beetles (also known as lesser mealworms) in poultry housing. This product can be used as a crack and crevice, broadcast, or banded/spot treatment to areas where beetle infestations frequently occur, such as walls, floors, stalls, around feeders, and support posts of poultry barns. To reduce immigration of insects, make a perimeter treatment around the outside of building foundations. Apply in a uniform band 1 to 3 feet up the exterior foundation wall and 3 to 6 feet out from the foundation.

Do not apply when birds are present and do not expose poultry to direct spray. Exposed water lines and feed troughs must be covered or raised/removed from the area before treatment begins. Once completed, allow treated surfaces to dry completely before restocking. Do not apply as a fog or space-spray.

Apply after de-caking, clean out and sanitation procedures are complete but prior to new flock placement. It may be advisable to treat houses before removing litter to prevent possible infestation of nearby residences.

Application Methods for Darkling Beetle Control Band Application:

Darkling beetles often crowd under feeders, water lines or along perimeter walls, lying buried in the litter. Under these circumstances, it may be sufficient to treat the primary areas of beetle infestation within a poultry house. Beetles can also infest structures behind insulation in walls; Tobex Multi MoA Concentrate can be applied as a spot treatment inside wall voids or as a crack and crevice application to target these infestations.

For band application, apply diluted product to a 3-5 foot wide swath of floor area, making sure to get under all the water and/or feed lines in the house. Continue applying a 3-5 foot swath along the inside perimeter of all the side and end walls including the entire surface of all footings and 1 to 3 feet up onto the walls support beams and wood surfaces above the foundation.

Interior Whole House Application:

Whenever an infestation is severe, it may be necessary to treat the entire house by applying the diluted product as a broadcast spray. Apply Tobex Multi MoA Concentrate on the entire floor, paying particular attention to areas beneath feed and water lines, as well as to the lower sections of walls up to 1 to 3 foot on wood surfaces above the foundation. It may be necessary to apply fresh bedding prior to restocking.

For Best Results:

In houses with support beams, treat around the base of each support post and 1 to 3 foot up each post. Apply diluted spray to cracks and crevices around insulation where beetles have been seen or can find harborage. To prevent movement of beetle infestations to houses and nearby residences, it may also be desirable to treat manure before it is relocated from the poultry house.

Use Tobex Multi MoA Concentrate as part of an integrated pest management program to extend the efficacy of insect control products and to help minimize the build-up and carryover of resistant insect populations. Darkling beetles have the ability to develop resistance to insecticides. When one class of chemistry is used flock after flock, the likelihood that insects will develop resistance and become more difficult to control, greatly increases. This product contains pyrethroids, which should be used in a rotational program with other classes of insecticides including neonicotinoids (Darlex® Insecticide), Insect Growth Regulators, organophosphates or spinosyns to minimize or prevent the development of resistance and to maintain its effectiveness in controlling darkling beetles and other listed insects.
