PESTICIDE RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT
EVERGREEN Pyrethrum Concentrate contains a Group 3A insecticide. Insect biotypes with acquired resistance to Group 3A may eventually dominate the insect population if Group 3A insecticides are used repeatedly in the same field or in successive years as the primary method of control for targeted species. This may result in partial or total loss of control of those species by EVERGREEN Pyrethrum Concentrate or other Group 3A insecticides.
To delay insecticide resistance consider:
- Avoiding the consecutive use of EVERGREEN Pyrethrum Concentrate or other Group 3A insecticides that have a similar target site of action, on the same insect species.
- Using tank mixtures or premixes with insecticides from a different target site of action Group as long as the involved products are all registered for the same use and have different sites of action.
- Basing insecticide use on a comprehensive IPM program.
- Monitoring treated insect population for loss of field efficacy.
- Contacting your local extension specialist, certified crop advisors, and/or manufacturer for insecticide resistance management and/or IPM recommendations for the specific site and resistance pest problems.

TREATMENT OF STORED GRAIN AND SEED AREAS: For best results to kill stored product pests in grain and seed storage areas and stored grain and seed, treat the area when it is empty of product, as a protectant applied as commodity is put into storage, and as a surface spray once it is in storage.
FOR USE IN STORAGE SITES: This concentrate can be used to treat grain and seed in warehouse bins and trucks, cargo ships, mills, bin hoppers, elevators and conveying equipment as a cleanup prior to using them for storage. In mills and elevators, all grain-infested accumulations should be removed from the bin hoppers. All storage areas and conveying equipment should be thoroughly cleaned by sweeping out the waste grain, cobwebs and other debris from the walls and rafters as well as on the floor and door frames with special attention to material lodged in the cracks and crevices. All debris should be removed and burned to kill eggs and insects that might be present.
For farms, particular attention should be given to cleaning up around the used feed and grain bags, grain residues from wagons, harvesting equipment and feed troughs. Newly harvested grain should not be placed in the same bin with carry-over grain, and all carry-over grain stocks that are not treated with grain protectant should be fumigated. These cleaning operations should be done within two or three weeks before harvest.
After above sanitation measures have been employed, spray all areas prior to use for storage with 1 part to 22 parts water (6 fl. oz. with one gallon of water) up to 1 part to 8 parts (1 pint with one gallon of water). Apply at the rate of one gallon per 750 sq. ft. on walls, floors, ceilings and partition boards of bins, paying particular attention to forcing the spray into all cracks and crevices.
FOR USE AS A GRAIN PROTECTANT: This concentrate when diluted with water and sprayed directly on grains will effectively protect the grain against grain storage insects for a full season or approximately 8 months. Dilute at the rate of 1 part to
22 parts water (6 fl. oz. with one gallon of water). Thoroughly mix the emulsion and apply at the rate of 5 gallons per 1,000 bushels of grain as it is carried along a belt or as it enters the auger or elevator. This concentrate may be used in combination with a registered fumigant for use on heavily infested stored products.
Monthly inspections should be made. If the top 2 or 3 inches are infested, re-treat applying at the rate of 2 gallons of diluted material per 1,000 bushels of stored product
SURFACE TREATMENT OF STORED GRAIN AND SEED: To kill Indian Meal Moths, Angoumois Grain Moths and Mediterranean Flour Moths, monthly inspections should be made after the grain is placed in storage. If the top two or three inches are infested, dilute 1 part EVERGREEN Pyrethrum Concentrate with 14 parts of water and apply at the rate of 2 gallons per 1,000 sq. ft. of grain. Rake the mixture into the grain to a depth of 4 inches.
FOR USE ON LISTED ANIMALS:
- To kill Horn Flies, House Flies and Gnats, dilute at the rate of 1.5 to 3 fl. oz. per gallon of water and apply to wet hair thoroughly, paying particular attention to topline, underline, flanks, withers and other infested areas. Repeat treatment at intervals of 5 to 12 days for small insect populations or as needed when flies are emerging in large numbers.
- To kill stable flies, dilute at the rate of 2.5 to 4 fl. oz. per gallon of water and apply at a quart per adult animal to wet hair thoroughly, paying particular attention to legs, flanks, barrel, topline and other body areas commonly attacked by these flies. Repeat treatment each week as needed.
- To kill face flies, dilute at the rate of 2.5 fl. oz. per gallon of water and apply using spray which produces large wetting droplets. Apply to face of animal in the morning before releasing to pasture. Apply sufficiently to wet the face but not more than 1-1/2 ounces of spray solution per animal. Repeat daily as needed.
- To kill biting and sucking lice on livestock, dilute at the rate of 1 quart with 60 gallons of water (1.5 fl. oz. with 2 gallons) and spray to thoroughly wet hair of animal, including the head and brush of the tail. Repeat treatment in 10 days to kill newly hatched lice.
- To kill poultry lice, use a dilution of 2.5 to 4 fl. oz. of concentrate per gallon of water. Spray roosts, walls and nests or cages thoroughly. It is not necessary to remove poultry from the housing unit during treatment. This should be followed by spraying over the birds with a fine mist.
- To kill mites on poultry and in poultry houses, dilute at the rate of 2.5 to 4 fl. oz. per gallon of water and spray crevices of roost poles, cracks in walls and cracks in nests where the mites hide. This should be followed by spraying over the birds with a fine mist.
- To kill sheep “Tick” or Ked, dilute at the rate of 1.5 to 3 fl. oz. per 4 gallons of water and thoroughly wet all portions of the body by dipping or spraying with sufficient pressure and with a nozzle adjustment to give penetration of the wool. Treat at a rate sufficient to wet the animal.
- To kill fleas and brown dog ticks on livestock and to obtain protection against reinfestation, dilute at the rate of 9 fl. oz. per gallon of water and wet the animal by dipping or spraying. This product may also be used for livestock/pet quarters. Do not spray pets. For best results against fleas and brown dog ticks on dogs and cats, the kennels and/or animal quarters and bedding should be treated. Remove and destroy pet’s old bedding. To reduce infestation, thoroughly spray the animal’s bedding and sleeping quarters. Also spray the entire inside surface of dog houses. Put fresh bedding in pet’s quarters after spray has dried. Also treat dogs and cats [pets] with a registered flea and tick control product before allowing them to re-enter treated area.
- To kill adult darkling beetles (lesser mealworms) in poultry houses, dilute
2 – 5 teaspoons of EVERGREEN Pyrethrum Concentrate per gallon of water. Using a power or proportioner-type sprayer, apply a uniform spray until wet at pressures of 80 to 100 pounds per square inch to surfaces such as interior walls, roosting posts, structural support pillars, and other surfaces where adult beetles are observed. One gallon of spray mixture covers 250 – 500 sq. ft. Do not contaminate food/feed or water. For maximum effectiveness, treatments should coincide with each grow out or sanitation procedure. Indoor control can be enhanced by making perimeter treatments around the outside of buildings. To prevent immigrating adult beetles, apply a uniform band of spray 2 feet up and 1–4 feet out from the foundation.
FOR USE IN BARNS, DAIRIES, MILKING PARLORS, MILKING ROOMS AND POULTRY HOUSES: To kill the following flying insects: Fruit Flies, Gnats and Small Flying Moths, dilute at the rate of 2.5 fl. oz. per gallon of water.
