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.
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:
*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:
*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:
*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:
*Reapply products according to the instructions above until the roaches are eliminated.
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.
Per the Advion Insect Granule Bait Product Label: Outdoor Broadcast Application: Advion Insect Granule may be applied as a broadcast application at the rate of 50 to 200 pounds of product per acre. Calibrate and adjust equipment prior to application to ensure that the proper rate of product is uniformly applied over the treatment area. Repeat application after 7 days, if necessary.
Most will reapply product every few weeks depending on activity of pest in the area and weather patterns that could affect the residual capacity of the product outdoors.
Please see our Mole Cricket Pest Guide for more tips and information.
