PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Orthene PCO is one of only two organophosphates that remain for the PMP industry. This is important because of resistance problems with synthetic pyrethroids and the need to rotate chemicals. Acephate has never been shown to have resistance. Many people will agree that Orthene PCO will control roaches when nothing else will. Orthene PCO provides quick knockdown and residual that will last 8-12 weeks. There are a few things that make Orthene PCO unique for commercial use. Orthene PCO controls insects by contact and ingestion. This is the reason an insect cannot develop resistance to acephate. It is a soluble pellet (powder). Orthene PCO leaves no visible residue, will not tie-up with grease and dirt and remains on top of grease and dirt and therefore always present when insects crawl over the surface. Orthene PCO is totally non-repellent. Insects do not know it is there. This means it can be used with baiting programs to get rapid control of infestations.
WHERE TO USE IT: Apply as a coarse, low pressure spot spray, crack and crevice spray or with a paint brush to localized areas where these pests are found or normally occur including corners of rooms and closets;around television sets and radios; along and behind baseboards; around and under sinks, dishwashers, washing machines, refrigerators, stoves and cabinets; areas where plumbing enters or leaves the room; or other areas inhabited by these pests.
NOTE: A period of 3 to 7 days may be necessary for Orthene PCO Pellets to reach its maximum effect on cockroaches.
