Spray directly on insects where possible.

For Bedbugs: Apply as a spot treatment to cracks and crevices, around baseboards, floorboards, bedboards and walls. First, thoroughly clean and air mattresses and springs. The spot treat only areas that may harbor bedbugs, concentrating on tufts, folds and seams. Allow all treated articles to dry thoroughly before use. Cover mattress with mattress cover or sheet before use. Do not apply to pillows or bed linens.

Grain Insects: To control confused flour beetles, saw-toothed grain beetles, spider beetles, shiny spider beetles, grain mites, red flour beetles, angoumois grain moths, grain weevils, Indian meal moths, Mediterranean flour moths, lesser grain borers, cigarette beetles, drug store beetles, chocolate moths, carpet beetles—remove infested grain, cereal or flour and destroy. Avoid contamination of other food and foodstuffs in the areas by removing before spraying. Spray directly onto exposed stages and into cracks and crevices where grain insects may be hiding. In homes, dispose of all infested products. The shelves and drawers should be cleaned and thoroughly sprayed so as to contact all pests, and covered with shelf paper after allowing shelves to dry. Any utensils that are contacted with spray should be washed before using.

Spiders: Spray directly on these pests and to the webbing and all cracks and crevices which harbor spiders.

Ants: To kill ants, spray trails, nests and points of entry within buildings and homes. Spray directly on ants where possible.

Wasps, Hornets, Yellow Jackets, Bees, Indoors: Application should be made in the late evening when insects are at rest. Spray liberally into hiding and breeding places, especially under attic rafters, contacting as many insects as possible.

House Flies, Mosquitoes, Cluster Flies, Gnats, Fruit Flies, Flying Moths: Close off all doors and windows. Point sprayer upward. Direct spray mist to all parts of the room, especially windows and other light sources which may attract these insects. Fill the room with mist, then leave the treated area. Keep the room closed for at least 15 minutes. Do not remain in treated room. Ventilate the room when treatment is completed.

Carpet Beetles and Clothes moths: To treat carpets—hold sprayer 14-18 inches from carpet. Apply spray evenly, covering the entire surface until slightly moist. Spray underside of carpet when possible. Avoid wetting or soaking. To treat garments, blankets, carpets, and other fabrics before storage—Dry clean or wash before treatment or after storage. Apply spray evenly, covering the material on both sides until slightly moist. For best results, place treated materials in plastic bags after drying, and store in a dark place. Also spray floor and baseboards, closets, cracks, infested areas of shelving and/or wherever these insects are seen or suspected.

Note: When treating upholstery, carpeting, fabric, or finely finished surfaces, apply to an inconspicuous area firs to observe any possible adverse reaction.

Do not water the treated area to the point of runoff. Do not make applications during rain. All outdoor applications must be limited to spot or crack-and-crevice treatments only, except for the following permitted uses:
(1) Treatment to soil or vegetation around structures; (2) Application to lawns, turf or other vegetation; (3) Application to building foundations, up to a maximum height of 3 feet; (4) Applications to underside of eaves, soffits, doors or windows permanently protected from rainfall by a covering overhang, awning or other structure; (5) Applications around potential pest entry points into buildings, when limited to a surface band not to exceed one inch in width; (6) Applications made through the use of a course, low pressure spray to only those portions of surfaces that are directly above bare soil, lawn, turf, mulch, or other vegetation, as listed on this label, and not over an impervious surface, drainage or other condition, that could result in runoff into storm drains, drainage ditches, gutters or surface waters, in order to control occasional invaders or aggregating pests.
Other than application to building foundations, all outdoor applications to impervious surfaces such as sidewalks, driveways, patios, porches and structural surfaces (such as windows, doors, and eaves) are limited to spot and crack-and-crevice applications only.

Pests on Outside Surfaces of Buildings: Use the product to control ants, clover mites, crickets, earwigs, millipedes and sowbugs (pillbugs) on the outside surfaces of buildings. To help prevent infestation of buildings, treat the building foundation to a height of 2 to 3 feet where pests are and may find entrance. Also, apply as a spot treatment to outside surfaces of buildings, including porches, screens, window frames, eaves, patios, garages, refuse dumps, and other areas where these pests congregate or have been seen.

House Flies, Mosquitoes, Cluster Flies, Gnats, Flying Moths, Outdoors: For outdoor use only as an aid in reducing annoyance from these insects. Spray outside surfaces of screens, doors, window frames or wherever these insects may enter the room. Also treat surfaces around light fixtures on porches, in garages, and other places where these insects alight or congregate.

Ants, Deer and Lone Star Ticks, Crickets, Fleas, and Earwigs, Outdoors: For treatment of localized infestations of these insects in outdoor areas where there are weeds or bushy non-crop areas, spray infested areas thoroughly. For ants, thoroughly wet hills and runways.

Wasps, Hornets, Yellow Jackets, Bees, Outdoors: Application should be made in late evening when insects are at rest. Aim spray at nest openings in ground, bushes, and in cracks and crevices which may harbor nests, saturating nest openings and contacting as many insects as possible.

To Control Fire Ants: Dilute 2 tablespoons of this product in 1 gallon of water. Apply 1 gallon of solution as a gentle rain to each fire ant mound using a sprinkler can. Thoroughly wet the mound and surrounding area to a 4 foot diameter. For best results, apply in cool weather, 65-80ºF, or in early morning or late evening hours. Treat new mounds as they appear. Do not disturb the mound prior to treatment. If possible, treat all mounds in the vicinity, and treat all colonies which may not as yet have constructed a mound. Larger quantities of solution can be prepared for multiple mound treatments. Equipment to deliver the diluted product as a gentle rain at the rate of 1 gallon per mound is still required. Do not use equipment that produces a pressurized spray as pressurized sprays may disturb fire ants and cause migration, reducing product effectiveness.
