Thought i would share this with you all....... Tried and it works!
Got told by local farmers / goat herders to try 'Agita' 10 WG for my fly problem at my stables, this year the flies have more than trebbled and are a right pain so i went and brought a tub !
Quite expensive at 24.50e a tub added 160ml of water to the tub, that covers 100m2, disolved the granules and painted it on to the walls in squares (about 30 of them 10 x 30cm each) all around the stables and inside the cave.
It is suposed to work for 6 months, after the first day i had a carpet of dead & dying flies all around the stables, swept them up and on the 2nd day the same, the 3rd day the same 4th day the same 5th day the same, 6th day, less but still quite a few..........
The Fly situation after a week is now well under control, unbelievable in fact, now off to buy another tub for our patio and kennels.
Brought mine from the feed merchants as you go into Baza from Benamaurel.

Its very good stuff, we use it on our kennels, stables and all the metal curtains on the house doors. But unfortunately you cant use it on yourself.
Its good for spraying on the patio set when having a BBQ.

We got this after being mentioned on the old forum some time ago and worked very well we just paint it on the wood above the windows around the patio. We had to get it from Huescar so good to know we can get it somewhere more local.

I can remember there being some discussion about this last year. Someone said it stained white walls yellow - is it the same stuff?

Having just had the facade of our cave re-rendered and painted brilliant white, I'm reluctant to paint it with something that's going to stain it dingy yellow. However, eating, drinking & just sitting out on the terrace in the evenings is one of life's major pleasures, so I'm going to get some and paint the timbers supporting the pergola and hope that works.

A note of caution: this is obviously highly toxic stuff. When I opened the link provided by HappyChic the Precautions section said the usual stuff about not ingesting it, not breathing in spray mist and avoiding contact with skin and eyes. It also says there is no known antidote. I'm sure we've all got more sense than to breathe the stuff in or to drink it, but I wouldn't dream of using it in any space that's going to be occupied by children. Sorry if this sounds neurotic, but I have my reasons. There's an established link, for instance, between early exposure to insecticides and the subsequent onset of Parkinson's Disease. My husband lived as a child in Rhodesia, where industrial quantities of DDT (now banned) were sprayed by plane onto the tobacco crops without a thought for the legacy being left behind. He now has advanced Parkinson's - which could, of course, just be coincidence. But this stuff can't become inert once applied, or it wouldn't do the job. At the very least, don't use it on walls etc. which could be reached by children: who knows what they could be ingesting if they touch the wall & then lick their hands? I guess that applies to adults, too.

P.S. OH has just informed me that not only were the Rhodesian tobacco crops liberally sprayed with DDT in the late 1940s, but their house was sprayed with it every 6 months on the orders of the government, in an attempt to eliminate mosquitos. Guess they eliminated a few humans along the way, too.

The good news is that we don't have to worry about the risks of using Agita. The worst has already happened, so it would be like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted.

I'm by no means an environmental campaigner: I drive a car, I frequently use budget airlines and if I could find a weedkiller that would deal with my field, I'd apply it liberally. But the point is that DDT was, in the 1940s, a relatively new, miracle solution. It's no longer regarded as such and is banned worldwide. Be very, very cautious of its successors.

Thankyou Jenny, so very informative, and so sad, Parkinson's is an awful illness, i worked for many years within the heath sector and had a lot of dealings with the illness, if ever you need any help or just a carer for a few hours you only have to ask.
Scarey stuff for sure, all insecticides are ! I have put it high enough so as my dogs can not lick it. I am quite wary of using it at home as i love the Lizards & Gechos that have moved in, but it is for certain working well at the stables.
I use a product called Zooveca 'g' as a spray, for the flys at home and also on my dogs for ticks, fleas and to keep the flys at bay, this works well and also has good results and cheap at 7euros a bottle. (you water it down)
I love the stuff but am now going to research it more, all the local ganaderos use it, it has multipurpose use as an insecticida, i am even sending it to the Uk on a regular basis for friends stables, cats & dogs, my friend swears by it to remove house fleas her hoards of cats bring in.
I spray my dogs once a month, the ticks fall off and we never have a flea problem! Wink

Body count of about 4 Sad All I can think of is that spraying they stuff isn't as effective as painting it on. I shall try that instead and hopefully rack up some corpses Twisted Evil
What sort of consistency should it be? Similar to a single or double cream (if even cream like at all)?

I still have piles of them. 160ml of water added to the tub, then 30 squares painted on 10x30cm each.......was like half way between single & double. I am only getting the piles where i did it inside the Stables & Kennel. The bits i painted outside are not so effective, that is unless the wind is blowing the deceased away. Razz
