Always add the powder to water at the rates given, and apply with a knapsack sprayer, bucket pump or another sprayer capable of giving a coarse spray directly onto exposed surfaces frequented by the pests. All dilutions should be applied to run off, i.e. 1 L of prepared spray per 20 - 30 m2, depending on porosity of the surface to be sprayed. Prepare a fresh suspension as required. Do not store diluted insecticide.

Where to Apply:

• Ants - nests, runs, walls, drains and places where ants are seen.

• Bedbugs - cracks and crevices in adjacent walls, bed frames, mattresses.

• Carpet pests - the infested area of carpet, particularly around edges and under furniture.

• Cockroaches - walls, cupboards, skirting boards, behind sinks, stoves and pipes. Pay particular attention to cracks and crevices.

• Fleas - skirting, floors and carpets, kennels, bedding and adjacent wall area.

• Paralysis ticks – vegetated areas where ticks are found

• Spiders - exposed surfaces where spiders are seen, nests and known hiding places.

• Silverfish - walls, cupboards, cracks and crevices, ceiling and enclosed floor spaces.

• Houseflies, mosquitoes, biting flies - all exposed surfaces where these flying insects may rest, eg, walls, ceilings, verandahs, etc.

• Hide beetles - spray wet skins prior to or after racking.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. Can I spray Coopex directly onto poultry?

A. Coopex is not registered for this kind of use so it's not something we can legally recommend. However, I do know people who use Coopex like this and they have been happy with the results.

Q. Can Coopex be used on plants in the garden?

A. Coopex is not registered for garden use, so I can't recommend it for this kind of use. Coopex includes Permethrin as its main ingredient which is available in some garden sprays but the garden variety is very expensive. However, Pyrethrin is quite similar to Permethrin and is more affordable. Here is a link to a product that includes Pyrethrin, Click here.
