Don't wait to treat insect problems. After a mild winter, you may be inundated with insects earlier than usual. Many insects hibernate during the winter, but the milder temperatures can wake them up early to search for food. That means to protect your home and yard, as well as your family and pets, you may need to treat earlier in the year than usual. Getting out and getting ahead of the problem can help prevent bigger problems later.
Ants, chinch bugs, and ticks (including those that may transmit Lyme disease) are just some of the bugs that you might find in your lawn early after a mild winter. Spreading Ortho® Bug-B-Gon MAX® Insect Killer for Lawns will control those and about a hundred other listed types. To control insects on your flowers, trees, and shrubs, use Ortho® Bug B Gon® Insect Killer for Lawns & Gardens.
Kill ants, spiders, and cockroaches for up to 12 months indoors on nonporous surfaces with Ortho® Home Defense MAX® Insect Killer for Indoor & Perimeter¹. Create a bug barrier by spraying the product around the outside along the foundation, and around window frames and doorways.
Treating now to kill early-invading bugs will give you a head start on protecting your plants and property for the spring and summer, so you can enjoy the warm weather ahead. Be sure to follow the label directions for when, where, and how to use each product.
