OUTDOOR USE: To control ants (including fire ants, big headed ants, carpenter ants), cockroaches, including German cockroaches and aid in the control of American cockroach nymphs, crickets, pill bugs, silverfish, sowbugs, and spiders (including brown recluse [on non-porous surfaces] and cellar spiders), true bugs (including brown marmorated stink bugs, boxelder bugs, Jadera bugs) in compressed air sprayers, dilute 1 to 8 fluid ounces of Essentria® Mosquito & Tick per gallon of water (use lower rate for maintenance service and higher rates for active infestations) and apply at the rate of 2 gallons per 1,000 square feet or until area is thoroughly wet. Also apply to a band of soil and vegetation 6 to 10 feet wide around and adjacent to buildings. Treat the building foundation to a height of 2 to 3 feet with sufficient water for coverage. Make special efforts to spray areas where pest species congregate, including, but not limited to, waste receptacles, dumpsters, unoccupied picnic tables, the exterior of food handling establishments, and food pavilions. Additionally, apply around potential entry areas including, but not limited to, eaves, windows, doorways, porches, porch lights, and around utility boxes.
For power sprayers, mix 1 to 8 fluid ounces of Essentria® Mosquito & Tick per gallon of water (use lower rate for maintenance service and higher rates for active infestations) and apply until area is sufficiently covered (usually min. 2 gallons per 1,000 square feet). Use care and do not spray on sensitive plants. If not sure, test spray a few leaves 2 days before spraying entire plant. Exceeding rates may create potential phytotoxicity on turf surfaces. Maintain agitation. Repeat as necessary.
