Optashield CS Controlled Release Insecticide is a controlled release insecticide. Comes in a liquid capsule suspension that controls pests. Deals with flying, crawling, and wood-infesting insects such as ants, ticks, flies, cockroaches, and spiders. It contains 6% Cyfluthrin. Cyfluthrin poisons insects by contact through sticking to their tiny hairs and bodies. Then it paralyzes these insects, leading to their deaths. This product can be applied to surfaces, cracks, crevices, spots, and voids. Has broad control, allowing it to be used both indoors and outdoors. Can be diluted in water and be used for spray applications. Available in a 120-ounce bottle.
This product is extremely toxic to fish and aquatic invertebrates. Remove from premises or tightly cover fish tanks and disconnect aerators when applying indoors where such containers are present. DO NOT apply when weather conditions favor drift from treated areas. Drift and runoff from treated areas may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in neighboring areas. To protect the environment, DO NOT allow pesticide to enter or run off into storm drains, drainage ditches, gutters, or surface waters. Applying this product in calm weather when rain is not predicted for the next 24 hours will help to ensure that wind or rain does not blow or wash pesticide off the treatment area. Rinsing application equipment over the treated area will help avoid runoff to water bodies or drainage systems.
HOW TO USE
This product may be applied using compressed air, backpack, or power spray equipment. Thoroughly clean spray equipment before using this product. Shake concentrate well before mixing. First add approximately 1/2 the required water to the tank, then add the proper amount of concentrate. Agitate, add the remaining water, and thoroughly agitate the solution again. When emptying the bottle, triple rinse with water and add the rinsate to the spray tank. Continue to agitate solution occasionally during use to ensure even coverage. Shake or reagitate solution if spraying is interrupted or if dilution is left in sprayer overnight. If spray screens are used, they should be ≥50 mesh. Water may be used at temperatures up to 160°F.
