What is 1600 X-clude Formula 2?
1600 X-clude is truly a product that's right for the times. The active ingredient is natural pyrethrum (from chrysanthemum flowers) and it is microencapsulated to work better and longer with lower mammalian toxicity potential. This is BASF 1600 X-Clude FORMULA 2, in the 20 ounce (Large) spray can. Just so handy to grab when you are in a hurry...safe and VERY effective! It should be even more effective now that the Active Ingredient is .5% Pyrethrins Botanical Insecticide...compared to the .3% in the older version!
1600 X-clude Formula 2 is a microencapsulated (timed-release) pyrethrum insecticide packaged in a ready-to-use aerosol canister. Labeled for use in Greenhouses, Homes, Interiorscapes and Landscapes on Potted and Flowering Plants, Foliage, Bedding Plants, Cut Flowers, Vegetables and Ornamentals.
How Does X-clude work?
The semi-permeable capsule wall protects the natural pyrethrum from air, light and other conditions that would otherwise break it down quickly. When the product is applied, the water around the capsules evaporates, allowing some of the active ingredient inside to diffuse through the capsule wall. This forms a thin coating of exposed pyrethrum ready to work. The microcaps easily adhere to the bodies of the targeted insects. When sprayed the microcapsules in 1600 X-clude Formula 2 are easily picked up or eaten by insects on leaf, soil surfaces, cracks and crevices etc. Microencapsulation protects the pyrethrins from air, moisture and other environmental conditions. It takes only a few capsules to kill the insect as the microcapsules adhere to tiny hairs on the insect’s body. Chewing insects may ingest the microcapsules, receiving a lethal dose.

How do you use it?
Indoors: You can spot spray pests as needed or use a s direct spray on floors, walls, behind shelves and drawers. For ants you spray at all points of entry, into nests and trails.
For flying insects it may be used indoors as fog spray. You use a 5-8 second spray for 1,000 cubic feet or 5-8 seconds per 100 square feet. You do need to leave the area for awhile after treating.
Outdoors: 1600 X-clude Formula 2 can be used to spray on screens, around doors and windows. Any place that pests can enter.
Plants, shrubs etc.: Apply when air is still. Use a slow sweeping motion holding the can 18-24 inches from the plant. Use only a light mist on foliage For best coverage, 1600 X-CLude Formula 2 should be sprayed directly and lightly above the plant, allowing the particles to fall into the foliage. Same thing for spraying underneath foliage. Let the spray drift up. Do NOT spray foliage directly. For rows of plants you would spray at the rate of 1 foot per second. Comes with complete application instructions.
