DIRECTIONS FOR USE
KNOCKDOWN FARM, LIVESTOCK, FOOD PROCESSING PLANTS AND
INSTITUTIONAL INSECT KILLER .5% PERMETHRIN contains permethrin, which is a synthetic pyrethroid. It controls a broad spectrum of pests that are listed in the accompanying sections of this label. Permethrin provides rapid kill of listed insect pests. Although the synthetic process has increased the stability of permethrin giving it residual properties, it is still degraded by the ultraviolet rays of the sun. This results in a relatively short residual life in the presence of sunlight; however, when protected from the sun, permethrin KNOCKDOWN FARM, LIVESTOCK, and FOOD PROCESSING PLANTS AND INSTITUTIONAL INSECT KILLER .5% PERMETHRIN will
provide residual activity against listed insects below.
