Use as a preventive treatment to create a barrier, keeping termites out.
Reapplication for subterranean termites should only be made when there has been a disruption of the chemical barrier in the soil due to construction, excavation, landscaping, etc. Reapplication should be made as a spot treatment to those areas. Annual reapplication of the entire premises must be avoided.

DO NOT treat soil that is water saturated or frozen, or in any conditions where run-off or movement from the treatment area (site) is likely to occur. DO NOT apply while it is raining.
