329.6 Authorized chemicals and specifications.
Based on available information, the chemicals or pesticides to be applied to the waters of the State, as well as the dosages and the methods of application, are those indicated to be best in respect to safety of non-target organisms, accumulation in tissues and persistence in the environment.
(a) Control of mosquito larvae (flowing streams and open waters of ponds and lakes containing fish are not to be treated).
(1) For the individual on his own or leased property.
ChemicalSpray MixtureDosageApplicationAreas to be Treated
Methoxychlor (emulsifiable concentrate 25%)(4 teaspoons per quart of water½ ounce (4 teaspoons) of mixture per 100 sq. ft. surface or proportionalApply with "flit gun" or small atomizing sprayer containing no more than needed for the surface treatedTemporary or permanent ponds without outlet to other waters and containing no fish, or to similar small swampy areas containing water
Pyrethrins (If 0.1 or 0.2% pyrethrins) (If 20% concentrate)Undiluted1 ounce (2 tablespoons of either mixture to 100 sq. ft.of surfaceAs aboveAs above and may also be applied to weedy margins of ponds containing fish when found to harbor larvae. This type of area may be treated even when pond drains to other waters
Use ½ teaspoon to 1 quart of kerosene
Oil (kerosene or #2 fuel oil) Note that a new oil "flit MLO" is nonphytotoxic and is effective at lower dosageUndiluted3 ounces (6 tablespoons) oil per 100 sq. ft. of surface or proportionalAs aboveTemporary or permanent ponds not containing fish, without outlet to other waters if browning or destruction of vegetation will not be objectionable. Localized areas of heavy vegetation on margins of ponds which contain fish may also be treated
If available, use undiluted¾ oz. (6 teaspoons) per 100 sq. ft.As above
(2) Large scale treatments (community, town, county, etc.).
ChemicalSpray MixtureDosageApplicationAreas to be Treated
Methoxychlor (emulsifiable concentrate, oil solutions, wettable powders, or granulated formulations)Dilution based on delivery rate of equipmentNot to exceed 0.2 lb/acre (active ingredient)Positive pressure aircraft spray; large mechanical sprayers, or for small areas not readily reached, hand or canister sprayers— calibrated for exact deliveryTemporary or permanent ponds and swamps and marshes not containing fish and without outlet to other waters
Malathion (emulsifiable concentrate)As aboveNot to exceed 0.5 lb/acre (active ingredient)As aboveAs above
Abate (4 lb/gal emulsifiable concentrate)As above0.5 ounce (of formulation) per acre usually to 1.5 ounce per acre in presence of high organic pollution.As above—general even distribution to water surfaceAs above. At the dosage used not too toxic to fish in fresh waters, so small amount of drainage to other waters may be tolerated
Granular— 1% on sandAs obtainedNot to exceed 5 lb/acreCalibrated spreader
Granular— 1% on sandAs obtainedNot to exceed 2½ lb/acre of formulationSame
Flit MLOUndiluted2½ gallons per acreCalibrated hydraulic hand or power sprayers (not to exceed 30 p.s.i.)Any water where phytotoxicity is a problem and marshes, swamps with outlet to other water and weedy margins of ponds and lakes containing fish
#2 fuel oil plus 3-5% wetting agent such as Triton B 1956, Nopco 1216 or Amine 230XUndiluted5-10 gal/acre if unpolluted, little vegetation. 20-50 gallons/acre, if heavily polluted, vegetated Calibrated mechanical sprayer Catch basins, dumps and sumps
(b) Blackfly larvicide applications.
(1) Usually the holdings of an individual property owner are too small to gain any effective control by treatment of waters on his property. Black flies are reported to fly several miles and treatment of a stream must involve the treatment of the headwaters for the best effect. Airplane application is the only method of treatment that is authorized. If the individual's holdings are extensive enough to constitute a large-scale operation, a permit may be issued according to paragraph (2).
(2) Large scale operations (associations, municipality, governmental agency, etc.). (If area for which permit is requested is too small, or incomplete, for effective control, the permit may not be granted.)
ChemicalSpray MixtureDosageApplicationAreas to be Treated
Methoxychlor oil solution plus 0.5-0.75% emulsifier such as Triton X 100 in finished formulationUsually one gallon 15% methoxychlor per flight mileNot to exceed.075 lbs per swath acre of active ingredientPositive pressure air-craft spray only. Approximately 100 ft. swaths, spaced ¼ mile between centers, to cross streams at approximately right anglesAll streams in spray area. Except for the outlets, direct spraying of lakes and ponds should be avoided
Note: Aircraft operators should hold an agricultural aircraft operator's certificate from the Federal Aeronautics Agency and also a State license as custom applicator as soon as the State regulations are in effect. Aircraft must also be certificated and properly equipped according to the Federal Aeronautaics Agency regulations.
