How to use
When insects first make their appearance, apply with ease using this attached sprayer. First, shake the bottle well. Next, connect the sprayer to a hose and turn on the water.
For lawn insects, begin spraying by sliding the lever to the "ON" position and spray evenly only until the surface of the lawn is wet.
For treatments on roses, shrubs, flowers, and small trees, spray to uniformly cover upper and lower leaf surfaces, stems, and branches.
To keep insects from entering your home, spray a 2-foot band around the foundation and on the foundation of the house to a height of 2 feet.
To treat home vegetable gardens, melons, fruit, and nut trees, apply as a thorough spray, wetting leaves and branches without allowing runoff.
Once you're satisfied with the treatment, slide the lever to the "OFF" position and turn off the water. You can relieve water pressure by sliding the lever to the "WATER" position. After the water slows to a drip, slide lever back to the "OFF" position and disconnect the sprayer from the hose.
Where to use
For residential outdoor use on residential lawns, around your home's perimeter, and on ornamentals, flowers, trees, shrubs, vegetables, and fruit trees.
Where not to use
n order to prevent the pesticide from running into sewers, storm drains, and curbside gutters, please do not use to treat hard flat surfaces unless the surface is protected from rainfall and sprinkler spray. Additionally, 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.
When to apply
To best control unwanted populations, apply when insects first appear.
How often to apply
Applications made around home foundations, porches, patios, and stored lumber should be repeated every 14 days as necessary. Some stubborn lawn insects may require a second treatment 4 to 6 weeks following the first application.
For applications made to flowers, shrubs, small trees, and home vegetable gardens, use as necessary to maintain control, waiting at least 7 days between each application.
