Advion WDG is labeled for use as a spot or crack-crevice treatment at a maximum volume of 1 gallon per 1,000 sq. ft. to control cockroaches and other listed pests in residential structures and the nonfood areas of commercial, industrial, public and institutional buildings/structures, including restaurants, warehouses, food processing plants, supermarkets, hospitals, nursing homes, motels, hotels, schools, daycares, laboratories, computer facilities, aircraft, buses, boats/ships, trains, pet shops and zoos.

Non-food/non-feed areas include areas such as garbage rooms, lavatories, floor drains (to sewers), entries, and vestibules, offices, locker rooms, machine rooms, boiler rooms, garages, mop closets and storage (after bottling or canning).


Application to food/feed areas of food/feed-handling establishments should be made as a spot or crack-and-crevice treatment at a maximum volume of 1 gallon per 1,000 sq. ft. at the highest dilution rate (0.1% dilution).

Food- and feed-handling areas include areas for receiving, storage, packing (canning, bottling, wrapping, boxing), preparing edible waste storage, and enclosed processing systems (mills, dairies, edible oils, syrups). Serving areas are also considered a food/feed area when food is exposed and facility is in operation.

Apply into cracks and crevices using equipment designed to deliver a pin stream between different elements of construction, between floor and equipment, openings to voids and hollow spaces in walls, bases and equipment.


  • Do not apply to areas or surfaces where food/feed, food utensils or food processing surfaces may come into contact and become contaminated.
  • Do not apply to areas that are routinely washed, such as cracks and crevices in tops of tables, food/feed preparation and holding surfaces for prepared foods.


Apply Advion WDG as a spot and/or crack-and-crevice treatment in unoccupied companion animal housing. Normal cleaning practices of the structure should be followed along with applications of Advion WDG insecticide to effectively control the crawling and flying insect pests listed in the label.

For unoccupied areas of companion animal structures such as kennels, apply as a spot and/or crack-and-crevice treatment to floors, vertical and overhead surfaces where listed crawling or flying insect pests are or may be present. Cover feeders and waterers before application to prevent contamination. Pay attention to areas such as windows and doors and areas where insect pests hide or congregate. Apply perimeter treatments in a uniform band 1-3 feet up and 2-6 feet out from the companion animal housing facility. Allow treated surfaces to dry before animal reentry. Maintaining a year-round integrated pest management program that includes multiple tactics will help prevent populations of pests from reaching problem levels.


  • Do not apply to structures while occupied by companion animals.
  • Do not make applications to any animal feedstuffs, water or watering equipment.
  • Do not contaminate any animal food, feed, or water in and around companion animal housing when making applications.


Methods of Application


Apply Advion WDG using a coarse low-pressure spray as a spot or crack-and-crevice treatment to infested areas or areas suspected to be infested. Make applications to areas including pest entry sites, attics, wall voids, behind cabinets or equipment, under counters or appliances, and along baseboards and reticulation systems. Advion WDG can be applied using ULV equipment such as Micro Injector or Actisol machine for crack-and-crevice or spot applications only. Do not use ULV equipment to make spatial or fogging treatments.


Apply Advion WDG using a coarse low-pressure spray as a spot or crack-and-crevice, general surface or perimeter banded treatment to control or prevent pest infestations. A perimeter band of 10 feet, for example, can include 3 feet up the exterior wall and out to 7 feet of horizontal surface away from the wall base.

Application Equipment:

Small-volume applications to interior or exterior surfaces can be made with backpack or hand-held applucators. Advion WDG can be appplied using ULV equipment such as Micro Injector or Actisol machine for crack-and-crevice or spot applications only. Advion WDG can also be applied using foam-generating equipment. For exterior applications with higher volumes, Advion WDG can be applied to exterior of structures using high-volume sprayers, truck-mounted or other power equipment.

Application Volume and Spray Coverage:

For indoor use, apply no more than 1 gallon per 1,000 sq. ft. For exterior use with backpack or other hand sprayers, 1-4 gallons per 1,000 sq. ft. is recommended. The maximum volume for exterior use is 4 gallons per 1,000 sq. ft. at 0.1% dilution (0.53 oz ai/1,000 sq. ft).

For exterior use on medium to heavy infestations of pests, porous surfaces, complex sites, such as dense perimeter landscaping, dense mulching, or for maximum residual performance, use higher specified volumes.

For applications to exterior of structures using high-volume power-spray equipment, Advion WDG can be diluted to less than 0.05% concentration and applied at a higher volume. Lower mix rates with higher application volume help ensure proper spray coverage and distribution of the insecticide. the higher spray volumes may be necessary for exterior applications to dense vegetation, mulch or other challenging areas around structures. As a mixing example, if targeted spray volume is 10 gallons of spray per 1,000 sq. ft, mix 0.33 oz (1 packet) per 10 gallons of water. For exterior use in California, refer label instructions in the label.

Mixing Directions:

  1. Important: Do not pour Advion WDG into an empty tank.
  2. Each packet must first be opened. Then pour the contents into the applciation or mixing tank.
  3. Clean application tank prior to using Advion WDG.
  4. Fill application tank with water to about half of desired volume.
  5. Pour the appropriate amount of Avion WDG into tank.
  6. Agitate.
  7. Fill tank with remaining volume of water and agitate again.
  8. Treatment mixture is now ready to apply. If treatment mixture sits in the tank for extended periods, reagitate prior to application.
