Fogging to clean hatchery rooms, incubators and hatchers, poultry houses and livestock buildings: All surfaces must be cleaned and disinfected in accordance with label directions prior to fogging. Remove all animals and feed from premises, vehicles and enclosures. Remove all litter and manure from floors, walls and surfaces of barns, pens, stalls, chutes, and other facilities and fixtures occupied or tranversed by animals. Empty all troughs, racks, and other feeding and watering appliances. To clean by fogging, close room off so fog is confined to the room being treated. Hatchery ventilation system must remain on during fogging. Wear a dust mist respirator when mixing the use solution and pouring into the fogging apparatus.

A. Hatchery rooms: Vacate all personnel from hatchery room to be fogged. Close room off so fog is confined to room to be treated. Prepare a stock solution of one (1) part VIROCID to forty-two (42) parts water (3 fluid ounces VIROCID to 125 fluid ounce water). Insert the nozzle of the fogging device through a suitable opening in the room. With the setting on maximum output, fog 3.8 fluid ounces per 10,000 cubic feet for the designated fogging time in the table below. Do not allow people to breathe or contact the fog or to enter the room until the fog has completely settled or exhausted. Note: Re-entry intervals (REI) and personnel protection equipment (PPE) are determined by the following hatchery room air exchange rates (ACH) per hour. Under no circumstances must the hatchery room be entered by unprotected persons before the listed re-entry intervals. If hatchery room must be entered, before the listed re-entry intervals, the individuals entering the room must wear a long sleeve shirt and pants and an approved NIOSH/MSHA full facepiece respirator, such as the 3M 6700-6900 series, with an organic vapor cartridge, such as the 3M 5N11 and 3M 501 filter retainer.

B. Incubators and hatchers: Remove poultry, chicks and eggs prior to treatment of setters and hatchers. Not for treatment of hatchers which contain chicks or eggs. Prepare a stock solution of one (1) part VIROCID to forty-two (42) parts water (3 fluid ounces VIROCID to 125 fluid ounces water). Fog at a rate of 3.8 ounces / 10,000 cubic feet for fogging times specified in table above into setters and hatchers immediately after transfer. Repeat daily. Discontinue hatcher treatments approximately 24 hours before pulling the hatch. Do not allow people to contact or breathe this fog and do not enter machines until the fog has exhausted. To do this, install permanent fogging nozzles in setters and hatchers and use an air compressor to disperse the sanitizing solution as a fog. It is also satisfactory to fog setters and hatchers with a 1:1000 solution of VIROCID. If this is done, fog for 30-90 seconds once per hour or once every two hours.

C. Poultry houses and livestock buildings: After the house has been depopulated and cleaned as in 1. A to F under “Disinfection of non-food surfaces, farm, animal, and poultry housing facilities and equipment”, double check to be sure all people, poultry, livestock and pets have vacated the building. Close all windows, doors, curtains, etc. making the house as closed as tight as possible. Prepare a stock solution of one (1) part VIROCID to four (4) parts water (25 fluid ounce VIROCID to 100 fluid ounce water). Insert the nozzle of the fogging device through a suitable opening in the room. With the setting on maximum output, fog 125 fluid ounces for each 1000 cubic yard. Place the fogger just inside the door of the building to be treated, or insert nozzle of the fogger through a suitable opening in the door or building. The opening must be just large enough to accommodate the nozzle. After fogging, the building must be kept closed for twenty-four hours. After twenty-four hours, open the house and air for a minimum of twenty-four hours before it is repopulated with poultry or livestock. Note: The generated fog is very irritating to eyes, skin and mucous membranes. Under no circumstances should a room or building be entered by anyone until the fog has completely settled. A reentry time of 2 hours is required after the actual fogging. If the building or room must be entered, then the individuals entering the building or room must wear a self-contained respirator approved by NIOSH/MSHA, goggles, long shirt, sleeves and pants. If feeders and waterers were not removed from the premise during treatment, or were not adequately covered to prevent contact with treatment, they must be washed with detergent and water before use for poultry or livestock.

Control of algae and slime forming bacteria in recirculating water cooling systems and evaporative condensers

A. VIROCID must be added in the system directly at a point where uniform mixing and even distribution will occur. Do not mix with any other chemicals or additives.

B. Severely fouled systems must be chemically and/or manually cleaned before adding VIROCID treatment. If Algae/slime growth is absent or minimal, proceed with the initial dose.

C. Initial Dose: 2.5 fluid ounces of VIROCID per 100 gallons of water (50ppm) in the system. Repeat treatment until algae/slime growth is controlled. Maintenance Dose: After algae control is evident/achieved, apply 1.25 fluid ounces of VIROCID per 100 gallons of water (25ppm) in the system every 7 days (weekly). Repeat treatment as needed to maintain algae/slime control.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL:

Do not contaminate water, food, or feed by storage and disposal. Storage: Store in a cool, dry place in tightly closed container away from children. Avoid temperatures below 23°F and above 113°F. Pesticide disposal: Pesticide wastes are acutely hazardous. Improper disposal of excess pesticide, spray mixture or rinsate is a violation of Federal Law. If these wastes cannot be disposed of by use according to label instructions, contact your State Pesticide or Environmental Control Agency, or the Hazardous Waste representatives at the nearest EPA Regional Office for guidance. Container handling: Nonrefillable container. Do not reuse or refill this container. Triple rinse container (or equivalent) promptly after emptying. Triple rinse as follows: Empty the remaining contents into application equipment or a mix tank and drain for 10 seconds after the flow begin to drip. Fill the container 1/4 full with water and recap. Shake for 10 seconds. Pour rinsate into application equipment or a mix tank or store rinsate for later use or disposal. Drain for 10 seconds after the flow begins to drip. Repeat this procedure two more times. Recycle container, if available, or dispose of in a sanitary landfill.
