    Q
    Why won't the Advion Insect Granule Bait work on red imported fire ants?
    Why won't the Advion Insect Granule Bait work on red imported fire ants, yet the Advion ant bait arena will?
    A
    The bait matrix or the food based ingredients that attract the ants are different and may not be as attractive to that particular ant species. Advion does make a bait specifically for fire ants: Advion Fire Ant Bait

    Q
    I saw squirrels eating the granules. What attracts them and will Advion Insect Granule Bait hurt them?
    I am using advion granular bait.
    A
    Advion Insect Granules are a food based insect bait so the same thing that attracts ants could potentially attract other animals such as squirrels. According to the Advion Insect Granule MSDS "This product has no known adverse effect on human health if it is ingested" and therefore would most likely not have an adverse effect on the squirrels health either.

  • Asked by Mark from Sterling, Va
    04/10/2013
    Q
    If you do spread it along the whole lawn, how many sq ft does the 25lb bag treat? How often do you need to apply?
    Do you apply the granuels with your standard lawn spreader and apply to the whole lawn, or do you just sprinkle granuels where you see a cluster of ants?
    A

    You can use a standard granule spreader as long as it can be calibrated to spread 4.6 lbs per 1,000 sq ft. (this is the max usage rate for the initial treatment. 1.15 to 4.6 lbs per 1000 square feet for most insects on the label)

    How to calibrate your spreader:

    Almost all fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, etc have treatments in amounts of so much product per 1000 square feet.  So if you can figure out what your walking speed is then you know anytime you apply any product that calls for so much of it per 1000 square feet, you always set your spreader on this setting.  You can calibrate this by marking off a 1000 square foot (10 x 100) area and placing the required amount of product in pounds in the spreader.  Start with a low setting and start walking your marked off area at a normal pace.  You can adjust as you go and find the basic setting for you to apply the product over a 1000 square feet.

    10/01/2016
    Q
    Can I use Advion Insect Granule Bait in my apartment?
    I am starting to see roaches (IDK what kind, I'm in Missouri) in my very clean apartment. The manager says they're likely from other tenants. I am buying the Advion Gel Bait but want this also. How can I apply this in my apartment to keep these bastards out until I move!
    A

    Advion Insect Granules are not meant for use indoors for roaches. It is only labeled for crawl spaces, attics, etc.

    We would recommend using Roach Control Kit Rotation A instead. This comes with everything you will need to do a complete treatment for roaches.

    STEP 1: Baiting - Maxforce FC Magnum Roach Bait Gel

    *To use the Maxforce FC Magnum tube, remove the closed tip by gently unscrewing it, and replace it with one of the included reuseable open tips. Use the provided plastic plunger or a bait gun to dispense the gel.

    *Apply small bait placements approximately ¼ inch in diameter directly to cracks and crevices where roaches are most likely to encounter it. Ideal bait placements include:

    • Behind kitchen cabinets and counter tops.
    • Behind wall hangings such as pictures, clocks, or posters
    • Behind, next to, and under the stove.
    • In the corners up under the sink and other cabinets.
    • In stored paper bags and boxes.
    • Around pipes, cords, and cables that come out of the wall.
    • Behind and under bathroom fixtures.
    • Behind the medicine cabinet and vanity.
    • In any cracks or crevices around shelves or wood
    • in corners and under railing in and on drawers.

    *Do not apply bait in spots where you have used or plan to use insecticide sprays.

    *Smaller, more frequent bait placements are better accepted than fewer, larger placements.

    *Use up to 1.5 grams of bait (15 x 0.1gm placements) per square yard for light to moderate infestations.

    *Use up to 3.0 grams of bait (30 x 0.1gm placements) per square yard for severe infestations.

    *After application, replace the open tip with the closed tip to keep bait fresh, and store in a cool, dry place out of reach of children or pets.

    *Reapply bait every 2-3 weeks or when placements appear to be gone.

    *Roaches will die by ingesting the bait, physical contact with the bait or its residue, or from contact with roaches or feces of roaches that have consumed the bait.

    STEP 2: Insect Growth Regulator - Gentrol Point Source Stations

    *Do not activate Gentrol Point Source Stations until you are ready to use them. To activate a station, press firmly on the pouch located on the side of the device until you hear a snap or pop to indicate the capsule has been opened.

    *Place the station in any orientation (vertical or horizontal) in areas where roach activity has been found. Ideal point source placements include:

    • In and around kitchen or bathroom cabinets.
    • Inside closets or pantries.
    • False ceilings.
    • Near refrigerators or other appliances.
    • Refuse areas.

    *Each station treats up to 75 square feet for 90 days from activation. For areas larger than 75 square feet, use multiple stations.

    *For convenient follow up, you can mark the month when a station has been activated with a pen directly on the station.

    *For vertical placements, remove the paper backing to expose the sticky surface on the back of the station and press firmly onto a clean surface.

    *The active ingredient will move from the station throughout the treatment area, so roaches do not have to come into direct contact with the station in order to pick up the active ingredient.

    *Do not apply baits, sprays, or other insecticides directly onto the stations, although these may be used in the same areas.

    STEP 3: Spraying - Temprid SC Insecticide Concentrate

    *You will need a hand pump sprayer such as a Chapin 1 gallon pump sprayer to mix and apply Temprid SC.

    *Use 2 x 8mL mono-doses per gallon of water for your first application, and 1 x 8mL packet for follow-up treatments, if needed.

    *To mix Temprid SC: Add when filling spray tank with water, or fill tank 1/3 - 1/2 with water, add Temprid SC, then finish filling the tank. Shake or agitate the mixture before spraying.

    *If diluted spray is stored overnight, agitate before using. Only dilute what you plan to use within 24 hours of mixing.

    *Apply Temprid SC mixture as a spot or crack and crevice treatment where roaches have been seen or can find shelter or entry. Application sites may include:

    • Entry points such as around doors, windows, and water pipes.
    • Areas where roaches travel such as baseboards and corners.
    • Areas where roaches hide such as behind or under refrigerators, stoves, and sinks.

    *Do not apply on top of bait placements or where bait placements may be made. As a general rule, spray low, and bait high.

    *Keep pets and children out of the treatment area until the spray is dry.

    *Do not spray food handling surfaces or in ways in which food or utensils may be contaminated with the spray.

    *Reapply every 7-10 days as needed.

    STEP 4: Be Patient

    *Complete roach control may take from a few weeks up to six months, depending on the size of the population and your diligence with good sanitation practices. Large populations do not appear overnight, so they will not be eliminated overnight.

    *Use the included Catchmaster Insect Monitor Glue Boards to track your progress:

    • Separate each card along the perforated lines to create three smaller boards from each larger card. This will create a total of 12 monitors from the 4 larger cards.
    • Fold each trap gently to create a right triangle shape. Remove the adhesive covering on the angled top tab, then firmly press the logoed panel to the adhesive, creating a secure triangle trap with three openings.
    • Carefully remove the interior paper to expose the glue surface inside the trap.
    • Place glue traps in areas where you have found roaches to hide, travel, or breed, such as in and under cabinets, behind toilets, under appliances, and in corners. If desired, remove the cover sheet on the bottom of each trap to expose the adhesive. Press firmly to a clean, dry surface to secure traps in place.
    • Monitor traps weekly to check your progress.
    • Replace traps if full of roaches, dust, or other debris.

    *Reapply products according to the instructions above until the roaches are eliminated.

    *For situations requiring treatments over several months, rotate your baits using our Roach Control Kit B and Roach Control Kit C.

    Q
    Must I dampen the soil before spreading Advion Insect Granule Bait for mole crickets?
    What month is best for spreading Advion in northeast Florida to combat mole crickets?
    A

    For mole crickets, Advion Insect Granule Bait should be applied in the spring. The specific month is in either March or April before the adult mole crickets have the chance to lay eggs. It is important to irrigate the soil before for the best results. This will bring the adult mole crickets to the surface. Rainfall or irrigation that occurs within 2-3 days after application may lessen the effectiveness of the product.

    Q
    How often should I apply Advion Insect Granule Bait for mole crickets on golf greens?
    Was considering using fipronil but, it may be too toxic after application with regard to golfer safety handling balls, touching eyes, etc.
    A
