Avert Dry Flo Roach Bait
Avert Dry Flowable Cockroach Bait has been called one of the most attractive and economical baits on the market today. Avert Dry Flowable bait with .05% Abamectin readily attracts and controls both bait-averse and non-bait averse cockroaches. Since it is a dry powder, it will not dry out like gel baits. In fact, Avert Dry Flowable Cockroach Bait is guaranteed effective up to one year and in most cases the bait will stay effective for several years! Apply in small dabs around kitchens, bathrooms and other areas where roaches tend to flourish. 1 tube = 1.06 ounces
How Avert Dry Flowable Cockroach Bait Works
Avert Dry Flowable clings to roach bodies when they walk through it. The powder is later ingested when the roaches preen themselves. The active ingredient Abamectin B1 interferes with the insect's nerve impulses and begins affecting cockroach populations within 24 hours. This type of insecticide allows the cockroach time to return to the colony, where the insecticide can be passed to other cockroaches, which minimizes reproduction and ultimately reduces and controls the population.
PESTS CONTROLLED: Ants, Booklice, Carpet Beetles, Cockroaches (including carbamate, organophosphate, organochlorine and pyrethroid resistant strains), Crickets, Drugstore Beetles, Earwigs, Flour Beetles, Grain Weevils, Pillbugs and Sowbugs
Target Uses of Avert Dry Flowable Roach Bait
Avert Dry Flowable Cockroach Bait is guaranteed effective up to one year, making it a great economical choice. The powder formula can also be easily applied deep into cracks, crevices, and wall voids where other gels and baits don’t reach. This makes Avert Dry Flowable a great choice for areas at high risk of infestations or re-introductions, especially since bait can be applied in hidden areas where roaches can find it before having the chance to establish a population. Avert Dry Flowable has the formulation and low application rates of dusts paired with the speed and transfer affect of baits. The enclosed crack and crevice tool also makes application easy as no other equipment is needed to apply. Be sure to eliminate water sources since this is a dry bait (also consider using it in conjunction with a gel bait).
Avert Dry Flowable’s labeling does not exclude any roaches, and it includes additional pests like ants, earwigs, pantry pests, and carpet beetles, making it a great choice in any Integrated Pest Management program. Baits are also always a great choice in areas where the use of sprays is prohibited or undesirable. (Do not apply sprays on top of Avert or in areas where Avert will be applied.)
The closer you can put the bait to where cockroaches live and breed, the more likely they are to consume it. Avert Dry Flowable is intended for application with the supplied hand duster to hiding and runway areas and those places where pests are found. Apply insecticide directly into cracks and crevices. Apply lightly and uniformly to infested areas. Pay particular attention to cracks and crevices; service ducts; false floors and ceilings; wall voids; around electrical and telephone fittings and equipment; around water and sewer pipes; under and behind cabinets, refrigerators and sinks; around window and door frames; and in attics and crawl spaces. The amount to be applied will vary with the site. Concentrate treatment at insect activity sites. For light infestations, a minimum of 4 - 6 bait points is recommended per 100 sq. feet of treatment area. For heavy infestations, a minimum of 12 - 24 bait points is recommended per 100 sq. feet of treatment area. Inspect bait placements and reapply when necessary.
* Follow the instructions (found in the plastic bag) for inserting the plastic extension tube into the Avert Dry Flowable hand duster.
· Let the hand duster lie across your fingers with your palm facing upward. Place your thumb in the middle of the tube or over the “R” in Avert. While holding the hand duster parallel to the floor and pointed away from you, begin to lightly shake the tube.
· Continue to shake the tube between each “puff” to keep the powder in an airborne state.
· For your first application, give the tube a few quick shakes, then a light but firm press of the thumb.
· As the tube of Avert Dry Flowable starts to empty, you will gradually begin tilting it more and more downward. By following the shaking technique and the “parallel-to-gradual-tilting” of tube technique, you will be using Avert Dry Flowable at its peak efficiency.
*Always read the product label completely before use.
Each 30 g tube yields approximately 200 bait placements.
