Do not allow children or pets into the treated area until dry. 

  • Do not water the treated area to the point of runoff.
  • Do not make applications during rain.
  • All outdoor applications must be limited to spot or crack-and-crevice treatments only, except for the following permitted uses:
  1. Treatment to soil or vegetation around structures
  2. Applications to lawns, turf and other vegetation
  3. Applications to building foundations, up to a maximum height of 3 ft. Other than applications to building foundations, all outdoor applications to impervious surfaces such as sidewalks, driveways, patios, porches and structural surfaces (such as windows, doors and eaves) are limited to spot and crack-and-crevice applications only.
  • Application is prohibited directly into sewers or drains, or to any area like a gutter where drainage to sewers, storm drains, water bodies, or aquatic habitat can occur. Do not allow the product to enter any drain during or after application.

In New York State, this product may not be applied to lawns within 100 ft of a coastal marsh, or stream that drains directly into a coastal marsh. 

STEP 1:  Determine size of spraying job. For lawns and vegetables, measure the area to be sprayed. For trees, shrubs and flowers, apply as a thorough cover spray. Make applications when insects first appear. Applications should be repeated only as directed to maintain control.

STEP 2:  Use a clean sprayer. Carefully measure and mix the amount of product and water as indicated in the directions. It is always a good idea to wear gloves when handling pesticides. Kitchen utensils such as measuring cups and measuring spoons should not be used for food purposes after use with pesticides.

STEP 3: Spray as directed. Thorough coverage is important.

STEP 4: Flush sprayer with clean water after each use. 

See directions for list of use sites, plants and insects controlled. Use the rate given in the directions for the type of insect you want to control on the site or plant you are spraying.

MEASUREMENT CONVERSIONS

1 Tbsp = 3 tsp
1 fl oz = 6 tsp or 2 Tbsp
6 fl oz = ¾ cup
1½ Tbsp in 3 gallons of water = 1½ tsp in 1 gallon of water
2 Tbsp in 3 gallons of water = 2 tsp in 1 gallon of water

‡NOTE: This product is non-staining to most home siding depending on age and cleanliness. However, before using in areas where the spray may contact home siding (vinyl siding in particular), test in an inconspicuous area and recheck in a few hours. Do not use if any staining is observed. 

UNDERGROUND INSECTS/THATCH-INFESTING INSECTS including blue grass billbug (adult), black turfgrass Ataenius (adult), chiggers, chinch bugs, white grubs (Japanese beetle, European chafer, southern chafer), dung beetle and hyperodes weevils (adult), European crane flies and mole crickets (nymphs and young adults). Mix 1.5 fl oz (3 Tbsp) in 1 gallon of water to treat 120 sq ft. For subsurface insect control (mole crickets, grubs), water treated area with additional ¼ to ½ inch of water for optimum results. Do not apply more than seven times per year per location.
SURFACE INSECTS including ants‡‡, armyworms, cockroaches, crickets¥, cutwormsß, earwigs, fleas, ladybeetles****, lawn moths (sod webworms), millipedes, mosquitoes, moths∞, Palmetto bugs, sowbugs, mites^, spittlebugs and waterbugs. Thoroughly wet down grass a few hours before applying. Mix 1.5 fl oz (3 Tbsp) in 1 gallon of water to cover 240 sq ft. Delay additional watering or mowing for 24 hours after application for optimum control of surface insects. For heavy infestations or to kill lone star ticks, brown dog ticks, American dog ticks and deer ticks (which may transmit Lyme Disease) use rate can be increased to 6 fl oz/1,000 sq ft. Do not apply more than 14 times per year per location.

Mix 1.5 fl oz (3 Tbsp) in 1 gallon of water and apply as a continuous band of insecticide around building foundation and around windows, doors, eaves, vents and other areas to greatly reduce the potential for entry by crawling pests. For easier application, remove debris and leaf litter from next to the foundation, cut back vegetation and branches that touch the foundation, and move or rake back rocks, deep mulch or other potential pest harborage next to the foundation. Apply a 3-foot band around the structure and upward along the foundation to 3 ft and around windows, doors and roof overhangs. Apply as a coarse spray to thoroughly and uniformly wet the foundation and/or band area so that the insecticide will reach the soil or thatch level where pests may be active. One gallon will treat 240 sq ft of surface area. Repeat application every eight weeks.

OUTDOOR SURFACES USE: Mix 1.5 fl oz (3 Tbsp) in 1 gallon of water and apply as a residual treatment to ornamental plants next to foundations of buildings and to surfaces of buildings, porches, screens, window frames, eaves, patios, garages and other similar areas where these pests are active. Repeat application every eight weeks.
