GENERAL INFORMATION: Grainex 500EC is a fast acting broad-spectrum organophosphate insecticide of low mammalian toxicity. It kills insects by contact, ingestion and fumigant action. Grainex 500EC controls a range of pests in grain, grain stores, livestock houses and yards. Insect pests controlled include: Flies, Wasps, Beetles, Weevils and Moths. Grainex 500EC provides rapid knockdown of insect pests and will persist on walls, floors and other inert surfaces to give residual control.

PREPARATION: All surfaces to be treated should be free of dust, dirt or food residues as these impair insecticide adhesion and encourage reinfestation. All exposed food and open food containers should be removed before treatment, or covered to avoid unnecessary contamination. Food contact surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned after application.

APPLICATION: Grainex 500EC may be applied through all conventional spraying equipment including knapsack and motorised sprayers. When applying as a spray, sufficient water should be used to wet all surfaces yet avoid run-off. All surfaces should be sprayed including floors, walls and ceilings, with particular attention to areas where insects breed and hide, such as cracks and crevices and warm areas around equipment. Note: In practice the actual amount of spray which can be applied to a surface without run-off varies. Normally 5 litres per 100 square metres will be sufficient, but on porous surfaces such as concrete, bricks and unpainted wood, up to 15 litres per 100 square metres may be required. In the interests of efficiency and economy it is necessary to consider the type of surface to be sprayed. Regular treatment may be necessary where washing or rain removes insecticide residues and on alkaline surfaces such as plaster or unpainted concrete.
