Shockwave 1 FAQs
- 17-ounce aerosol can
Please contact your distributor for availability.
Unlike aerosol fly baits that are designed to draw flies into the area sprayed, Shockwave 1 is designed to flush and kill both flying and crawing insects on contact. Many knockdown aerosols provide quick kill but do not provide residual control. Shockwave 1’s dual synergized formula also includes a residual insecticide and an insect growth regulator (IGR) to reduce future insect populations.
Shockwave 1 is labeled for use in animal holding areas, animal quarters, barns, milking rooms, hog barns, horse stables, pet sleeping areas, poultry barns, meat and poultry processing plants, and other farm structures. Shockwave 1 is a great ready-to-use option for fast knockdown and residual control in confined spaces like farm offices and vehicles when farm biosecurity is a concern.
Shockwave 1 contains pyriproxyfen, an IGR shown to provide significant effects on certain adult insects. For example, when an adult house fly come into contact with pyriproxyfen at treatment doses, their ability to reproduce is hindered. This is evident by increased sterility in both the male and female house fly.
Total treated area will depend on application type. Shockwave 1 will dispense from the aerosol can at 2 grams per second. To kill flying insects like flies indoors, Shockwave 1 should be space sprayed for 2-5 seconds per 1,000 cubic feet. For crack and crevice applications to control pests like spiders and cockroaches, plan to apply Shockwave 1 at a rate of 1 second per 3 linear feet.
Shockwave 1 can be applied indoors as either a spot, crack and crevice, or space spray application, and outdoors under eaves and as a spot treatment. Shockwave 1 comes with a convenient straw applicator to quickly switch from space spray to crack and crevice applications.
No, Shockwave 1 should not be used on or over animals.
Shockwave 1 kills and controls a broad list of insects common to animal production including stable flies, house flies, spiders, foul mites, crickets, and cockroaches. Please refer to the product label for a full list of target pests.
