Directions For Use
It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS FOR USE AND PRECAUTIONS ON THE LABEL MAY RESULT IN INJURY, INADEQUATE FLY CONTROL, AND/OR ILLEGAL RESIDUES.
AGITA 10 WG is a water dispersible insecticidal bait formulation for the reduction of housefly (Musca domestica) populations in and around the outside perimeter animal housing. The combination of a neonicotinoid insecticide, with both contact and stomach modes of action, with a housefly attractant provides an effective fly bait formula which encourages both male and female houseflies to remain in treated areas and consume a contact lethal dose of the bait.
In addition, AGITA 10 WG has been shown to be highly effective in controlling Litter beetle (Alphitobius diaperinus) infestations in broiler houses.
Use AGITA 10 WG as part of an integrated pest management program for houseflies. AGITA 10 WG is a formulation suitable for application as a spot spray insecticidal bait. 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 run-off. New litter and fresh bedding must be put into poultry houses prior to restocking.
Apply ONLY in locations not accessible to children, pets, domestic animals or wildlife. Protect from direct sunlight, water and rainfall. Do not apply bait where animals can lick the product. Do not apply directly to livestock or livestock feed as illegal residues may result.
Restriction: For commercial animal housing facilities only.
Insecticide Resistance Management
For resistance management, thiamethoxam is a Group 4A insecticide. Any housefly population may contain individuals naturally resistant to thiamethoxam and Group 4A insecticides. To delay insecticide resistance, avoid exclusive, repeated use of AGITA 10 WG or other Group 4A insecticides. Keep accurate records of insecticides used in your operation. Keep the housefly population as low as possible by manure management.
“Spot Spray” Application:
As indicated in the Table below, thoroughly mix the appropriate quantity of AGITA 10 WG in the corresponding volume of lukewarm water to obtain a mixture with the consistency of a sprayable suspension. Apply the spray, using a standard liquid spray applicator, to approximately one-third (1/3) of the total intended surface area to be treated. Surfaces on which flies are particularly likely to settle should be sprayed. Such areas may include window sills, door frames, warm wall areas and areas near animal pens, provided the applied product is kept out of reach of animals. Stir occasionally during application. Re-agitate before use if spraying is interrupted for longer than 30 minutes. Do not allow product to contact plants in bloom if bees are foraging in the treatment area. Do not use on walkways used by animals. See mixing and surface area examples in the Table below:

Directions for Litter Beetle Control in Broiler Houses (“Spot Spray” Method)
AGITA 10 WG is highly effective in controlling Litter Beetle (Alphitobius diaperinus) infestations in broiler houses. Under each feeder apply 2 fl oz of the mixed spray suspension (i.e., 2 oz of AGITA 10 WG mixed in 32 fl oz of lukewarm water) per square foot of 1.5-inch thick bedding material. Treatments to bedding must be made using a low pressure applicator.

Directions For Use
AGITA Fly Bait is a new fly bait formula containing a house fly sex attractant which encourages both male and female house flies to remain in the treated areas, thereby feeding on the bait. Bait should be scattered once per day over fly feeding areas and places where flies are known to congregate to provide initial knockdown and reduction of house fly populations. Scatter AGITA Fly Bait at a rate of 200 g per 100 m 2 from a container or other device to avoid handling bait. Bait may also be used in hanging or stationary tamper-resistant bait boxes in locations not accessible to children, pets, domestic animals or wildlife. AGITA Fly Bait should be used as part of an integrated pest management program for house flies.
May be used in agricultural buildings (e.g. barns, poultry houses, etc.) in areas where house flies congregate such as windowsills and near animal pens, provided the bait is kept out of reach of animals. Do not use on walkways used by animals.
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN, PETS, DOMESTIC ANIMALS AND WILDLIFE. Do not ingest or inhale. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Wear coveralls over a long-sleeved shirt and long pants, chemical-resistant gloves, shoes and socks when handling the product.Wear a NIOSH/MSHA-approved dust-filtering mask, long- sleeved shirt, long pants, shoes and socks during the clean up of product which is not completely consumed. Wash exposed body parts and change clothing after handling, and before eating, drinking or smoking. Do not contaminate feed, water, food or litter through application or disposal of product. Do not apply bait where animals can pick it up or lick the product. Prevent accidental transfer of the product, by people or animals, from treated areas to areas used by livestock. Harmful to bees. Do not discharge leftover product into ponds, streams or sewage systems.
For resistance management, thiamethoxam is a Group 4 insecticide. Any house fly population may contain individuals naturally resistant to thiamethoxam and Group 4 insecticides.

- Agita 10 WG 400 g
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:
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.
The following table (Table I) provides a guideline for the product dilutions and approximate equivalent sizes of the building that can be treated (expressed in terms of floor surface areas) with each volume;
|50 g||100 g||250 g*||400 g||1 Kg|
|40 mL water||80 mL water||200 mL water||320 mL water||800 mL water|
|20 m2 ground||40 m2 ground||100 m2 ground*||160 m2 ground||400 m2 ground|
Size of Building — Equivalence in Floor (Ground) Surface Area (m2)
*NOTE: As an example, to treat a room with a floor surface area of 100 m2, prepare a suspension of 250 grams of AGITA 10 WG in 200 milliliters of water and apply this volume to approximately 20 spots of 300 cm2 each.
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.
Again, the following table (Table II) provides a guideline for the product dilutions necessary to obtain an optimum suspension for spray applications.
|50 g||100 g||250 g*||400 g||1 Kg|
|400 mL water||800 mL water||2000 mL water||3200 mL water||8000 mL water|
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 (
The spray should be applied after cleaning of the facility and the placement of new letter, 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.
How to Control Flies in Your Home and Yard
- B.A., Political Science, Rutgers University
What’s a barbecue or picnic without a few flies, right? Wrong. The flies you nonchalantly swat from your burger and coleslaw can make you sick. These flies, known as filth flies, make a living off animal feces and garbage. Flies pick up all manner of nasty bacteria, then transport the disease-causing organisms right to your food. Take a few measures to control flies in your backyard and your home, and you’ll be healthier for it.
What Are Filth Flies?
Filth flies carry disease-causing organisms and can be a threat to public health. These flies breed in bacteria-laden environments, such as feces, carrion, and human food waste, often in close proximity to humans or domesticated animals. Filth flies include some of our most common fly pests — house flies, fruit flies, green bottle flies, stable flies, and several others.
A single house fly can carry over one million bacteria. No less than 60 different diseases can be transmitted by filth flies, from salmonella to dysentery. Most filth flies can reproduce quickly in warm weather. To keep fly populations under control, you must limit the places where they can breed and feed.
Good Sanitation Practices
There’s nothing a filth fly likes less than proper sanitation. Adult flies need a place to lay their eggs, and a clean home and yard just won’t appeal to mama fly. Here’s how to keep flies from breeding in or near your home.
- Clean up all pet and animal feces promptly. Any fresh, moist animal feces will draw flies. To keep flies from breeding in your dog’s business, either bury it immediately or use a pooper scooper and plastic bag to remove and seal the feces. Place the bagged waste in a lidded garbage can.
- Dispose of kitchen scraps and other organic waste properly. When it comes to food waste, the drier the better. Drain any moisture you can from it before throwing it away. Scrape your plates or other leftovers into a plastic garbage bag, tie the bag shut, and put it in a garbage can with a tight fighting lid.
- If you save kitchen waste for your compost heap, add some sawdust to your scrap bin to help absorb moisture and odors that might attract flies. If your compost pile does not heat up sufficiently, those kitchen scraps may attract breeding flies. Turn your compost pile regularly, and don’t put meats or animal waste in your compost bin.
- Garbage cans and dumpsters are favorite breeding areas for flies. You can significantly reduce fly populations by keeping lids tightly closed on your trash cans, and making sure the cans have no holes. All garbage within the can should be bagged and tied closed. Don’t forget to put your garbage out for collection regularly. It’s not a bad idea to scrub out your cans now and then, to remove any food or pet waste residue.
- Recycling cans also attract some filth flies. Rinse empty soda cans, beer bottles, and pet food cans before tossing them in the recycling. If possible, use a lidded recycling container.
- If you have fruit trees in your yard, pick up any fruit that falls on the ground. Fermenting or overripe fruit provides just the right combination of moist and sweet to attract flies.
- Indoors, take care not to overwater your houseplants. Prune and discard of any dying plant parts. Fungus gnat larvae feed on fungi that develop in moist soils and on decaying plant matter.
Following all the sanitation rules above will significantly reduce, but not completely eliminate, flies in your yard and home. You can further limit the numbers of these unhealthy pests by using appropriate barriers and traps.
- Install andmaintain tight-fitting window screens. Check your screens for holes or tears, and repair them as needed. Caulk and seal any openings around windows, doors, or in your foundation.
- Sticky flypaper does work but is most useful when fly populations are low. If you’ve followed all the steps to limit breeding sites, hanging a few sticky flypaper traps will do the trick on the few that wander into your home. Still, you might not like having a ribbon of dead flies hanging from your ceiling.
- Commercially available fly traps work well, especially for house flies. Traps usually contain some kind of food bait, sometimes in combination with a pheromone. Place fly traps where you see the most flies.
Pesticides are available to control flies, but should never be used as the first line of defense against them. Proper sanitation is the best way to keep flies to a minimum.
Follow sanitation guidelines, install good window screens, and use traps when needed. You should rarely if ever, need to use a chemical pesticide on flies.
