To kill ants*, centipedes, cockroaches, crickets, fleas, flies, gnats, millipedes, mosquitoes, pillbugs, scorpions, sowbugs, spiders and deer ticks. 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 250 sq ft of surface area.

OUTDOOR SURFACES USE: To kill ants*, centipedes, cockroaches, crickets, fleas, flies, gnats, millipedes, mosquitoes, pillbugs, scorpions, sowbugs, spiders and deer ticks.
