Permitted Insecticides and Handling
- Use only insecticides that are labeled for use in automated misting systems, and use only as described in the label.
- Insecticides that state “Not for use in outdoor residential misting systems” may not be used under any circumstances.
- Once insecticide has been introduced, ensure 6” air gap between hose and drum bung is maintained when filling.
- Insecticide label and dilution statement should be securely attached to the unit reservoir in a weatherproof pouch.
- Strictly follow label instructions regarding storage and disposal of insecticide and container.
