General Instructions:
Elector™ PSP is to be mixed with water and applied as a spray.

Fill the tank of the sprayer with water to about 1/2 of the total spray volume required. Start agitating and add the required amount of Elector™ PSP. Continue mixing and agitating while filling the spray tank to the required spray volume. Maintain sufficient agitation during the application to ensure uniformity of the spray. Prepare spray fresh for each use.

Control is enhanced when interior and exterior perimeter applications are made in and around livestock and poultry structures. Normal sanitation practices of the structure consistent with good animal husbandry should be followed to enhance effectiveness of insect control agents.

The physical and chemical compatibility with other preparations has not been determined.

Poultry Houses

Avoid contaminating feedstuffs or water used for drinking and cooling with premise treatment. Poultry may be exposed to incidental spray and do not need to be removed prior to application.

Protect laid eggs from incidental spray, where practical, remove laid eggs before use. Broiler chickens (for all purposes of product use): Birds must not be exposed to more than one treatment of the premises during the grow-out period.

Nuisance Flies (House flies & Stable flies):

Treat areas where flies rest: pay attention to side walls, the ends of building, upper sides of posts, and crossbeams. Spray in early morning when flies are resting. Use enough in a directed spray to contact flies and their resting surfaces thoroughly, but do not allow runoff to occur.

Darkling Beetles:

Apply in 1m wide bands to the floor under feed lines and in a 0.5m wide bands along the edges of the house. Applications should also be made into cracks and crevices around insulation, and where pests have been seen or can find protection. Indoor protection can be enhanced by making perimeter treatments to the outside of building foundations to prevent migrating adult beetles. Reapply after each grow-out or sanitation procedure.

Poultry Red Mites:

Apply to areas where red mites live. This includes areas between joints, cracks and crevices, under bent surfaces, the ends of metal bars, any place where two surfaces connect, and any place where dust can accumulate. Application to the exposed and unexposed areas is required to obtain a complete and thorough treatment. Ensure a uniform spray with adequate pressure to penetrate cracks and crevices where red mites are located during the day to achieve the highest efficacy from the treatment.
