A C T I O N :
Due to the active substance of the solution (cypermethrin and permethrin - synthetic pyrethroids with a broad spectrum of activity and low toxicity to mammals), the product is both a contact insecticide, and an ingestion one, but without gas production, which has the advantage of allowing immediate re-commissioning of treated areas. Pyrethrins have neurotropic action, acting at the axon, in both central and peripheral nervous system. The effect takes place in two phases: - initially appears an excessive activity of nerve cells, causing hyper excitability on insects, tremors and convulsions. After this first phase follows the impulses transmission blocking that leads to insect paralysis and gradual death.
Piperonyl butoxide inhibits oxidation of pyrethroids in insect body, and by prolonging insecticide degradation, potentiates their effect.
The antiparasitic solution, due to its components, forms once diluted a milky emulsion preventing the accidental ingestion by the handler and a quick and uniform dilution of the active antiparasitic substance. At the normal levels of use, the product is not phytotoxic, it has a reduced toxicity for the operator, the animal and the environment and it is biodegradable. The product is toxic to bees and fish.
I N D I C A T I O N S :
With a broad spectrum of insecticidal activity on most insects, it is used for pest control of buildings, public vehicles, industrial buildings, shops and livestock housing.
U S E . D I R E C T I O N S :
Diluted product should be sprayed with pressure pumps on the surfaces to be treated. For most insects Ectocid Forte product is diluted in water in concentrations of 1-2% (100-200 ml diluted product in 10 gallons of water), depending on the degree and type of infestation.
If bugs and other insects are more resistant, concentration increases to 3-4% (300-400 ml diluted product in 10 liters of water).
The prepared solution is practically odorless and does not stain painted walls; however its application should be avoided on freshly whitewashed walls, since pyrethrins are unstable in alkaline environments. The prepared mixture is used during the day.
P R E C A U T I O N S :
Highly flammable (R-11). Harmful by inhalation and if swallowed (R-20/22). Irritating to eyes (R-36). Very toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment (R-50/53). Toxic to bees (R-57). May cause sensitisation by skin contact. Repeated exposure may cause skin dryness or cracking (R-66)
Keep out of the reach of children (S-2). Keep container tightly closed (S-7).
Keep away from food, drink and animal foodstuffs (S-13).
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking (S-16).
In case of insufficient ventilation wear suitable respiratory equipment. Do not breathe vapors, aerosols (S-23). Avoid contact with eyes (S-25). Avoid any kind of unnecessary contact with the substance. Misuse may cause damage to health.
Do not empty into drains (S-29). Wear suitable protective clothing and gloves (S-36/37). In case of accident or if you feel unwell seek medical advice immediately (show the label where possible) (S-45). Keep only in the original container (S-49). The product and its container are disposed of as hazardous wastes.
Avoid release to the environment. Refer to special instructions/safety data sheet (S-61). During use, unauthorized persons will leave the room.
Food and feed improperly packed, the pets and farmed animals, as the toys, kitchen utensils left uncovered and other household items should be stored out of reach before applying the product. Fish tanks and spaces designed for terrestrial animals are properly covered (the ventilation stops). Cooking appliances, work desks and other storage, preparation or consumption of food areas, as also clothing, furniture and other items which often skin come in contact with, are also properly covered or cleaned and rinsed before reuse with detergent or alkaline cleaners.
In places with high human exposure, such as sick rooms, kindergartens, schools, dormitories, offices, etc., the substance is not applied on large areas, but the treatment is carefully executed, the spray being intended to get only on nest pests and their nearby areas.
Avoid contact with freshly sprayed areas that are still wet. The access of children and pests to the treated areas should be restricted.
Before reusing them, the spaces are throughly ventilated.
S T O R I N G :
Store in original containers at room temperature (15-25 degrees C), in dry places.
