Y-Tex- Control of darkling beetles (lesser mealworm) in poultry litter in chicken broiler and turkey growout houses.

Chicken Broiler Houses and Turkey Growout Houses:
There is a maximum use rate of 50 pounds of product that can be applied in “broiler” and turkey growout houses per flock of bird. The application can be split into two 25 pound applications, or one single 50 pound application, per flock. These applications can occur as one application at the 50 lb. rate prior to the flock being placed in the broiler house, or as one application at the 25 lb. rate prior to the flock being placed in the broiler house and a second 25 lb. application occurring not later than three weeks prior to shipping the birds for slaughter. If one single application is made at the maximum rate of 50 lbs., slaughter cannot occur sooner than six weeks after application.
Before birds are placed in the house, raise the feeders and waters and apply four 14-36 inch bands of ZetaGard LBT Insecticide using a 14- 36 inch drop style dust/granular appli- cator. Apply at a rate of 6.25 lbs. per 500 linear feet per band. Apply bands under each of two feed lines and along each wall. For severe infesta- tion apply up to 12.5 lbs. per 500 lin- ear feet in one treatment. Do not exceed 50 lbs. per 20,000 sq. ft. (standard 40 x 500 ft. broiler house) per flock.
After birds are placed in the house, raise feeders and waters and apply four 14-36 inch bands of ZetaGard LBT Insecticide using a 14-36 inch drop style dust/granular applicator. Apply at a rate of 6.25 lbs. per 500 linear feet per band. Apply bands under each of two feed lines and each of two side walls. Do not treat less than three weeks prior to slaughter.
Do not apply with power duster equipment. Do not enter or allow others to enter until dusts have settled.
Do not apply to animal feedstuffs or watering equipment.
