Kids & Pets
People (including small children) and pets may enter treated areas once the spray has completely dried.
For the best results, product should be applied to a lawn that was mowed and watered within the last 24 hours. Following the application process, mowing may be safely resumed after 2-3 days.
This is not the product label. Always read and follow the product label before use.
Before application, shake the bottle well to ensure equal distribution of the potent formula. Use the easy-measure cap when filling the sprayer jar for enhanced accuracy and efficiency.
Using with Other Products
Wait at least 7 days following application of this product before applying a second product, such as plant food or soil. Hard-to-control insects may require 2 to 3 applications, so make sure you leave enough time in between for maximum results.
For mole cricket control only, water the lawn thoroughly immediately after application while taking care to avoid any runoff.
What to Expect
While some insects take slightly longer to eliminate, the formula gets to work killing carpenter ants, harvester ants, and oriental and german cockroaches within minutes! Mosquitoes coming to rest on treated areas will be killed for varying periods after application, depending on the exposure of treated areas to weather conditions.
