Kitchen utensils such as measuring cups and measuring spoons should not be used for food purposes after use with pesticides. Step 3: spray as directed. Thorough coverage is important. Step 4: flush sprayer with clean water after each use. See directions for list of use sites, plants and insects controlled. Use the rate given in the directions for the type of insect you want to control on the site or plant you are spraying. Measurement conversions. 1 tbsp = 3 tsp; 1 fl oz = 6 tsp or 2 tbsp; 6 fl oz = 3/4 cup; 1-1/2 tbsp in 3 gallons of water = 1-1/2 tsp in 1 gallon of water; 2 tbsp in 3 gallons of water = 2 tsp in 1 gallon of water. Lawns: Underground insects/thatch-infesting insects including blue grass billbut (adult), black turfgrass ataenius (adult), chiggers, chinch bugs, white grubs (Japanese beetle, European chafer, southern chafer), dung beetle and hyperodes weevils (adult), European crane flies and mole crickets (nymphs and young adults). Mix 1.5 fl oz (3 tbsp) in 1 gallon of water to treat 120 square feet. For subsurface insect control (mole crickets, grubs), water treated area with additional 1/4 to 1/2 inch of water for optimum results. Do not apply more than seven times per year per location. Surface insects including ants, army worms, cockroaches, crickets, cutworms, earwigs, fleas, lawn moths (sod webworms), millipedes, mosquitoes, palmetto bugs, sowbugs, mites, spittlebugs and waterbugs. Thoroughly wet down grass a few hours before applying. Mix 1.5 fl oz (3 tbsp) in 1 gallon of water to cover 240 square feet. Delay additional watering or mowing for 24 hours after application for optimum control of surface insects. For heavy infestations or to kill lone star ticks, brown dog ticks, American dog ticks and deer ticks (which may transmit lyme disease) use rate can be increased to 6 fl oz/1,000 square feet. Do not apply more than 14 times per year per location. When to treat: treat the following pests during the months indicated of when first noticed. Billbugs: May, dung beetle grubs: March-July, hyperodes weevils: April-May, grubs: July-October. Treat ants and other insects when they first appear or you notice lawn damage. Pests outside the home: Mix 1.5 fl oz (3 tbsp) in 1 gallon of water and apply as a continuous brand of insecticide around building foundation and around windows, doors, eaves, vents and other areas to greatly reduce the potential for entry by crawling pests. For easier application, remove debris and leaf litter from next to the foundation, cut back vegetation and branches that touch the foundation, and move or rack back rocks, deep mulch or other potential pest harborage next to the foundation. Apply a 3-foot band around the structure and upward along the foundation to 3 feet and around windows, doors and overhangs. Apply as a coarse spray to thoroughly and uniformly wet the foundation and/or band area so that the insecticide will reach the soil or thatch level where pests may be active. One gallon will treat 240 square feet of surface area. Repeat every eight weeks.
