Due to the contents of this bait, surfaces sprayed can grow mold. Avoid spraying permant structures such as the side of your house. Spray on disposable material or containers that can be washed. House flies love the colors blue and black, so small squares of blue cardboard or other obsorbent materal work well, as well as things such as your garbage cans and recycle bins that can be washed.
Also, mix up the smallest amount possible. I have had sucess in mixing up a spray bottle and re-shaking and using previously mixed up product, but I have been told that the mixed product should be used within 24 hours for optimum affect. This may mean that you might have to weigh out the product on a sensitive scale to get the right amount, e.g, 2 oz per 16oz of water would mean only 1/8 of that package (1/4 oz) in 2 oz of water in a micro spray bottle to treat everything you need to treat around your house and use up all the product at once.
I try to spray blue peices of cardboard hanging in places where it does not get exposed to a lot of rain, such as under overhangs as well as inside my garbage can.
We had an apocalyptic infestation of flies after the fields next to us were spread with cage house waste. The first wave came just after the spreading, the second larger wave after the next hatch. My son, who at the time worked for a pest control company recommended Maxforce. The first time we painted it on different surfaces. It worked, however we knew we had to do something bigger and better after the second wave of flies. We mixed it and put it in spray bottles. We sprayed a lot of surfaces and flies were dying by the thousands. We had to keep cleaning the porch and entrance ways with the gas blower to prevent dragging large amounts of dead flies into our home. The spray bottle application worked well.
I work for a large pest control company in Florida and this is the same product that they use. Last year, we had flies all over our trash cans and recycle bins because their colors attract house flies. Due to their high numbers, dozens would always get in with the doors being opened and closed all day long. This year, after applying on disposable material near the cans and on the inside of the garbage can (have to wash it now and then anyway), we have seen only one or two flies, and those were probably the ones that haven't died yet. I mixed up just a small part of the packet with 2 oz of water (mixed by directions), and I still have enough to last for a long time! Great product!
If my dog eats the dead flies after eating Maxforce Fly Spot Bait will it hurt or kill my dog?
My dog stays in a fenced in yard and i wanted to apply the chemical to the sun room windows that are in the back yard with the dog. So when the fly's eat the chemical and drop dead onto the patio, what if the dog eats some of the fly's, like dogs do?
Maxforce Fly Spot Bait should not harm dogs who eat dead flies. Please make sure to keep the dog out of the treated area until dried.
What is the shelf life of diluted Maxforce Fly Spot Bait?
Can I mix the product per the recommendations and store the unused mixed product for use at a later time? If so, will it's effectiveness be reduced?
The longer a pesticide sits in its diluted form, the less effective it will be. In general, the manufacturer recommends that you use the diluted Maxforce Fly Spot Bait within 24 hours of dilution for best results.
