Application rates:

Ficam is available in water-soluble sachets of various sizes depending on the required dose rate. 
The standard dilution rate is 1 x 125 g sachet diluted in 10 L of water in a hand sprayer and this 10 L of dilution is then used to apply a residual deposit of insecticide to 250 m2 of interior wall surface. This results in a target dose rate of 400 mg of active ingredient per metre square. 
Sachet sizes of 62.5 g are also available for those programs which can accept a shorter residuality achieved with the lower dose rate of 200 mg of acive ingredient /m2.
