AquaPy can be used for the fast flushout, rapid knockdown and control of a range of flying and crawling insects.
It is a virtually odourless, non flammable, water based insecticide which contains natural pyrethrum, synergised with piperonyl butoxide. This combination gives it the flexibility in where and how it can be used; ready-to-use for application as an ultra low volume aerosol or can be diluted with water for application as a mist, thermal fog or surface spray. AquaPy is also accepted for use in certified organic premises and has the ability to be applied as a space spray (ULV aerosol, Mist/Thermal Fog) or as surface spray depending on the situation and target pest.
Key Features and Benefits:
- Control of flying and crawling insects
- Controllable residual activity
- Pioneering FFAST™ technology
- Low volume: 100ml treats 3000m³

Use & Safety
How to use:
As a Space Spray Indoors
Close doors and windows and shut off ventilation systems before spraying and for at least 30 minutes after treatment. Distribute spray evenly throughout the area. Treatments should be timed to coincide with the time of maximum flight activity for the target insect. For Tobacco Beetles this will typically be in the late afternoon and evening. Direct the spray into identified insect harbourages. Spray as frequently as the situation demands. Treatment at weekly intervals is recommended. More frequent applications may be necessary for heavy infestations.
As a Space Spray Outdoors
In general the dose rate for large areas should be acceptable (see table), but if only small areas are being treated the dose rate may have to be increased. The best conditions for outdoor spraying occur in the early morning or late afternoon and evening when conditions are most likely to be still.
As a Surface Spray
As a direct contact spray apply at a rate sufficient to dampen the insects present on the fabric of warehouses, granaries, mills, bakeries and similar situations, or to insects on the surfaces of bags and cases containing stored food products. Special attention should be paid to cracks and crevices and other insect harbourages. Spray as frequently as the situation demands. Residuality will depend on the rate used (see table) and the environmental conditions (surface type, cleanliness, moisture, temperature, etc).
Solid Waste Management
In solid waste management programmes the use of AquaPy should be integrated with good management practices e.g. regular infilling and compaction of refuse to a depth of at least 225 mm. New tip surfaces should be sprayed as they are created. Treatments should be repeated as necessary.
For Wasp Nests
Apply liberally and directly to the nest or to entrance holes of concealed nests until the nest is saturated. Treatments should only be carried out at dusk or other times when wasp activity around the nest is minimal.
