READ ALL DIRECTIONS COMPLETELY BEFORE USE
APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS: TEKKO 0.2G is formulated to be applied to bodies of water or containers that may harbor mosquito larvae and release the active ingredient to provide control for up to 90 days at the highest application rate or 60 days at the lowest application rate. The period of control may be limited in areas of high turnover or high organic matter content and retreatment may be necessary.
APPLICATION SITES: TEKKO 0.2G can only be applied to sites which do not drain DIRECTLY into natural water bodies.
Temporary or permanent sites which support mosquito larval development:
Catch basins, uncultivated agricultural and non-agricultural non-food areas, horse troughs (only for horses not intended for slaughter), dredging spoil sites, drainage areas, ditches, waste water treatment facilities, dairy or poultry lagoons, other animal waste lagoons, livestock runoff lagoons, sewage effluent, retention ponds, harvested timber stacks, swales, storm water drainage areas, sewers, catch basins, tree holes, bird baths, landfills, rain barrels, flooded roof tops, abandoned swimming pools, gutters, junk yards, abandoned vehicles, water-holding receptacles (e.g., tires, urns, flower pots, cans & other containers), and other natural and manmade depressions.
Application Method: TEKKO 0.2G can be applied by hand (wearing protective gloves) where only a small quantity is needed, e.g. breeding sites that hold small quantities of water such as flower pots, bird baths, cans, and other small containers. After proper calibration to ensure the application rate is correct, this product can also be applied using hand fertilizer spreaders, motorized backpack spreaders, or specialized equipment by air. For application to shallow surface pools (up to 6” depth), apply 26.5 oz. to 53 oz. (750 to 1,500 g) of TEKKO 0.2G per 100 sq. ft. of surface area. Use the higher rate for deeper pools and high organic matter.
Timing: TEKKO 0.2G works only against larval stages of mosquitoes, so begin treatment at the beginning of the mosquito season. Continue treatments up to the last brood of the season. TEKKO 0.2G provides up to 90 days of control, at the highest rate, in sites with limited turn-over of water. The active ingredient in TEKKO 0.2G will continue to be released over time.
