Home/Beetle Control
  • 18 or more $44.99 each AGITA 10 WG is a new water dispersible residual insecticidal bait formulation for the control of house flies (Musca domestica) in agricultural buildings (e.g. barns, poultry houses, etc.). The novel combination of a neonicotinoid insecticide with both contact and stomach modes of action, with a house fly sex attractant and a bait, provides an effective fly bait formula which encourages both male and female house flies to remain in treated areas and consume or contact lethal doses of the product. This unique formulation affords the end user up to 6 weeks of residual activity when applied according to label directions. In addition, AGITA 10 WG kills litter beetles (Alphitobius diaperinus) on contact in broiler houses. AGITA 10 WG should be used as part of an integrated pest management program for insects. Directions for Use: General: Use any AGITA 10 WG suspension on the day of mixing, preferably immediately after preparation. Do not treat dirty, highly porous or newly whitewashed walls to prevent loss of long term efficacy. Do not apply on metal and glass surfaces to avoid excessive run-off. Treated surfaces may display a slight, discernible discolouration (white to beige film or powder) when dry, that permits applicators to identify treated surfaces and monitor the rate of bait consumption. Apply ONLY in locations not accessible to children, pets, domestic animals or wildlife, and ONLY on surfaces not routinely contacted by livestock or workers/bystanders. Protect from direct sunlight, water and rainfall. DO NOT contaminate irrigation or drinking water supplies or aquatic habitats by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes. AGITA 10 WG is a formulation suitable for application as a paint-on and/or spray-on insecticidal bait for house flies or a contact insecticide for litter beetles. The appropriate recommendations for use rates and individual methods for these applications are as follows: Paint-On for Adult Fly Control: Thoroughly mix the appropriate quantity of AGITA 10 WG to effectively treat the intended surface areas with a corresponding volume of lukewarm water to obtain a suspension with the consistency of a brushable paint. In general, a ratio of 125 grams of AGITA 10 WG per 100 mL of water produces a mixture of suitable consistency that effectively coats surfaces and provides adequate drying times. The freshly prepared suspension should be applied using a brush and, because of the highly attractive nature of the AGITA bait formulation, need only be applied to a small percentage of the available surface area of a building. For paint applications, a daily maximum quantity of 2.0 kg of AGITA 10 WG may be mixed and applied by one person. Because of the effective attractive nature of the AGITA formulation, the suspension need only be applied using a brush to a small percentage of the available surface area of a building. As a general guide, apply the suspension at a rate of approximately 20 “spots” (of about 10 x 30 cm each) per 100 m2 of ground surface, in areas where flies congregate, such as window sills, doors frames, warm wall areas and near animal pens, ensuring that the bait is kept out of reach of animals and away from surfaces frequented by humans and domestic pets. Stir occasionally during application. Do not use on walkways used by animals or on any surfaces that may be routinely contacted by workers or bystanders. Where insufficient surface area is available for painting or where some slight white discoloration caused by the “paint” is unacceptable, paint strips of cardboard, wood or light boards and hang them from the ceiling in locations not accessible to children, pets, domestic animals or wildlife. Spray-On for Adult Fly Control: For applications employing a low-pressure spray applicator, thoroughly mix the Fly Bait with lukewarm water at the ratio of 125 grams of AGITA 10 WG per 1000 mL of water to obtain a mixture of suitable consistency that will effectively coat surfaces while providing adequate drying times. Apply suspension using a standard course spray applicator to appropriate target locations of the wall/ceiling surface area. Again, because the effective attractive nature of the AGITA bait formulation, and unlike “traditional” agricultural fly wall sprays, the suspension need only be applied to a small percentage of the surface area of a building to provide effective fly control. The amount of diluted product required to treat a particular building will vary depending upon the nature of surface to be treated. Apply spray to the point of run-off, while avoiding excessive run-off, to areas where flies congregate, such as window sills/frames, door frames, warm wall areas and near animal pens, ensuring that the bait is kept out of reach of animals and away from surfaces frequented by humans and domestic pets. Stir occasionally during application. Do not use on walkways used by animals or on any surfaces that may be routinely contacted by workers or bystanders. Where insufficient surface area is available for bait application or where some slight discoloration caused by the spray is unacceptable, spray strips of cardboard, wood or light boards and hang them from the ceiling in locations not accessible to children, pets, domestic animals or wildlife. AGITA 10 WG may provide up to six weeks of residual activity, depending upon the size of the resident pest population, re-infestation or re-invasion from neighbouring farms, etc. Estimation of the amount of bait remaining can be determined by observation of the rate at which the slight discolouration of treated surfaces (slight whitish/beige “powder”) disappears. Re-apply the product, as necessary, so as to reduce the possibility of a resident fly population being re-established. The ultimate residual control afforded by AGITA 10 WG will depend upon the size and source of the resident fly population, the re-invasion rates from neighbouring agricultural practices, and the on-farm maintenance, sanitation and hygiene procedures and schedules (e.g. routine removal of fly breeding sites/material, etc.). It is always recommended that AGITA Fly Bait products be used as part of a complete integrated pest management program designed to minimize pest populations and optimize the housing conditions for economic animals. Directions for use against Litter Beetle in Broiler Houses (“Band Spray” Method): AGITA 10 WG kills litter beetles (Alphitobius diaperinus) by direct contact. Using the preparation methods detailed above, AGITA 10 WG should be applied as a suspension in a single 1m wide band at the rate of 4 grams per square metre of surface area (i.e. “band spray method” - ~ 2 to 3 X the house fly control rate). Ensure that the product is mixed with sufficient water to allow a thorough wetting of this 1m wide band on all sides of the broiler house (~1 L per 15 m2). The spray should be applied after cleaning of the facility and the placement of new litter, but just before the house is heated for the arrival of a new batch of chicks. The spray should be applied to the litter beetles’ primary migration routes towards the new litter. The area around any cracks or openings in the ceiling or walls should also be sprayed. The rationale for this program is the fact that the beetles hide in the ceiling or walls between cycles and then crawl out just before the new chicks arrive. At this point, therefore, they will come into contact with the spray band.

    Precautions

    KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN, PETS, DOMESTIC ANIMALS AND WILDLIFE. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid breathing spray mist. Wear coveralls over a long sleeved shirt and long pants, chemical-resistant gloves, shoes and socks when handling the product, clean-up and repair.

TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION Tetrachlorvinphos is a cholinesterase inhibitor. Typical symptoms of overexposure to cholinesterase inhibitors include headache, nausea, dizziness, sweating, salivation, runny nose and eyes. This may progress to muscle twitching, weakness, tremor, incoordination, vomiting, abdominal cramps and diarrhea in more serious poisonings. A life-threatening poisoning is signified by loss of consciousness, incontinence, convulsions and respiratory depression with a secondary cardiovascular component. Treat symptomatically. If exposed, plasma and red blood cell cholinesterase tests may indicate degree of exposure (baseline data are useful). Atropine, only by injection, is the preferable antidote. Oximes, such as Pralidoxime Chloride, may be therapeutic if used early; however, use only in conjunction with atropine. In cases of severe acute poisoning, use antidotes immediately after establishing an open airway and respiration. With oral exposure, the decision of whether to induce vomiting or not should be made by an attending physician. DISPOSAL 1. Triple-or pressure-rinse the empty container.

Tempo 20 WP Insecticide also is intended for use as a general surface spray for control of flying and crawling insects in livestock housing structures, including poultry houses. Tempo 20 WP Insecticide is intended to be mixed with water and applied with hand pressurized or power operated sprayers. Spray pressure should not exceed 345 KPa (50 psi) at the nozzle tip when used indoors. Add the appropriate amount of product when filling sprayer tank with water, shake or agitate as necessary to mix. Diluted spray mixture can be stored overnight and applied the following day, but the mixture should be agitated before spraying to prevent uneven distribution of product. Before leaving spray mixture unagitated for an extended period of time, release tank pressure and elevate nozzle and hose above tank outlet, activate trigger and drain all suspension from hose back into spray tank. Re-tighten spray tank lid and do not re-pressurize until starting to spray again. Tempo 20 WP Insecticide will not stain or cause damage to any painted or varnished household surface, plastic, fabric or other surface where water applied alone causes no damage.

    Spot, Crack And Crevice Applications

    Mix one level Tempo scoop of Tempo 20 WP Insecticide in 3.75L of water to make a 0.05% active ingredient suspension. Under conditions of severe pest infestation or when longer residual control is needed, mix two level Tempo scoops of Tempo 20 WP Insecticide in 3.75L of water to make a 0.1% active ingredient suspension. Use a low pressure system with a pin-point or variable pattern nozzle to apply the suspension in specific areas such as cracks and crevices in or behind baseboards, in floors, walls, expansion joints, areas around water and sewer pipes, wall voids, or voids in table legs and equipment where pests can hide. Tempo 20 WP Insecticide can be reapplied at 10-day intervals, if necessary. Do not apply where electrical short circuits could occur. Use a dust or dry bait in these areas. Spot treatment with a low pressure coarse spray may be made ONLY to localized areas along baseboards; beneath and behind sinks, stoves, refrigerators and cabinets; around plumbing and other utility installations; around doors and windows. A spot is an area no larger than 0.2m2NOTE: CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN TO AVOID DEPOSITING THE PRODUCT ONTO SURFACES WHICH ARE EASILY ACCESSIBLE BY CHILDREN.

    Food/feed Establishments:

    Tempo 20 WP Insecticide applications are permitted in both food and non-food areas of food/feed handling establishments as a spot, or crack and crevice treatment. Food/feed establishments are defined as places other than private residences in which exposed food or feed is held, processed, prepared or served. Included also are areas for receiving, storing, packing (canning, bottling, wrapping, boxing), preparing, edible waste storage and enclosed processing systems (mills, dairies, edible oils, syrups) for food or feed. Serving areas where food is exposed and the facility is in operation are also considered food areas. Application in food handling areas of the facility may be made during close-down periods only. Do not apply directly to food or food-handling surfaces. Cover or remove all food processing and/or handling equipment before application. After application in food processing plants, bakeries, cafeterias and similar facilities, wash all equipment, benches, shelving and other surfaces which food will contact. Clean food handling or processing equipment and thoroughly rinse with clean, fresh water. Dwellings, Institutions and Modes of Transport: For general household pests and occasional invaders make applications in a manner as previously described under Spot, Crack and Crevice Application. Particular attention should be given to treating entry points and harbourage areas. Remove or tightly cover fish tanks and disconnect aerators during application. Bystanders and animals must be excluded during applications of Tempo 20 WP Insecticide, and not allowed to re-enter treated areas until at least two hours afterwards. For pantry pest control of exposed adult and immature stages of insects, make application to cupboards, shelving and storage areas. Particular attention should be given to treating cracks and crevices. Remove all utensils, uncovered foodstuffs (or any with package opened), shelf paper and other objects before spraying. Allow treated surfaces to dry and cover shelves with clean paper before replacing any utensils, foodstuff or other items. Any foodstuff accidentally contaminated with spray solution should be discarded. For stored product pest control of exposed adult and immature stages of insect pests, apply to cracks, crevices, and other surfaces where the pests have been seen or have harbourage. Treat warehouses, production facilities, storage areas, rail cars, truck beds and other areas where products are stored before filling with the product. Tempo 20 WP Insecticide may be used by pest control operators and grain producers to treat grain storage facilities and other areas noted above for stored product pest control. Cleaning of all areas prior to use of Tempo 20 WP Insecticide will increase levels of control. Any foodstuffs infested with pests should be removed and destroyed. For premises pest control make spot application in closets and storage areas where these pests normally feed or hide. Follow all precautions listed above for general household pests. For control of carpet beetles, apply as a spot treatment along baseboards and edges of carpeting, under carpets and rugs, in closets and on shelving. For control of flying insects indoors, apply as a spot treatment on window frames. Do not apply as a “space spray”. For control of carpenter ants in houses and other structures, use a 0.1% suspension and apply as a spot, crack and crevice or wall void application. Repeat treatments when necessary. Apply around doors and windows. Spray into cracks and crevices or through small drilled holes into voids where these ants or their nests are present. Do not exceed 30 to 50 mL of dilute suspension per m2 of treated surface. For aircraft pest control apply to cracks, crevices and other surfaces where the pests have been seen or have harbourage. Applications should not be made when passengers or non-essential personnel are present in the immediate or treated area. Passengers or other personnel should not be allowed to enter treated areas until at least two hours after application. Do not use in aircraft cabins. Do not allow spray to contact electrical and electronic systems. Pet Kennels: For use in pet kennels to control flying and crawling insects: apply as a spot or crack and crevice spray. Control will be enhanced when facilities are cleaned. Do not make applications of Tempo 20 WP Insecticide when animals are present in area of facility to be treated. Allow at least two hours after application before re-stocking treated area of the facility. Cover or remove animal feedstuffs or watering equipment.

    General Surface Applications

    Livestock Housing (including Poultry Houses):

    For use by pest control operators and livestock producers in livestock housing structures (including poultry houses) to control crawling and flying insect pests. For control of flies apply as a general surface spray using 1 or 2 level scoops of Tempo 20 WP Insecticide per 100 m2 in sufficient water to adequately cover the area being treated, but which will not allow dripping or run-off to occur. Use the higher rate when infestation is severe or when longer residual control is needed. Use a low pressure spray system with a fan-type nozzle to uniformly apply the suspension. Control will be enhanced if facilities are cleaned. Applications can be made to all fly resting surfaces such as walls, ceilings, posts, rafters, windows, dividers, stanchions, gates, bunks, curtains, etc. Full protective clothing is recommended, including a hat (preferably safety helmet with visor), safety glasses, goggles or face shield, respirator, long-sleeved coveralls, unlined rubber gloves and rubber boots. Do not apply Tempo 20 WP Insecticide when animals are present in area of facility to be treated. Apply only in well ventilated areas. Do not allow cattle to re-enter facilities within 2 hours following application and poultry within 24 hours following application. Cover watering bowls in dairy barns securely with a tight fitting, elastic banded plastic cover. Cover feeding troughs in dairy barns securely with heavy plastic (6 mil) with sufficient plastic to allow for a 6” overhang on the sides of the trough. Avoid direct spray application to the plastic used to cover bowls and troughs. Allow two hours after application before restocking treated area of facility. Do not apply where electrical short circuits could occur. Do not apply as a “space spray”. For control of crawling pests (see list) apply as a surface spray (see all the above directions and precautions for fly control) and/or as a crack and crevice application (0.05-0.1% active ingredient suspension) to areas where the insects occur. For control of lesser mealworm (adults and larvae) in poultry houses apply after clean-out and before fresh litter is put down. Do not add fresh litter until at least one day after spraying.

    Resistance Management Recommendations

    For resistance management, please note that Tempo 20 WP Insecticide contains a Group 3 insecticide. Any insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Tempo 20 WP Insecticide and other Group 3 insecticides. The resistant individuals may dominate the insect population if this group of insecticides are used repeatedly in the same fields. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action but are specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed. To delay insecticide resistance: ● Where possible, rotate the use of Tempo 20 WP Insecticide or other Group 3 insecticides with different groups that control the same pests in the field. ● Use tank mixtures with insecticides from a different group when such use is permitted. ● Insecticide use should be based on an IPM program that includes scouting, record keeping, and considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices. ● Monitor treated pest populations for resistance development.
