DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
IMPORTANT: Read entire DIRECTIONS FOR USE before using this product. Shake well before using.
This product is a ready-to-use termiticide/insecticide formulation. When this product is sprayed, the product rapidly expands generating a dry foam with an expansion ratio of approximately 30:1, with 1 oz (28 g) of product being dispensed in approximately 5 sec producing approximately 1 qt (946 ml) of foam. This product can be used to control insects where they are found or suspected; including: in nests, galleries, harborages and voids. This product can be applied in and around residential structures as well as structural and non-structural elements that can potentially be attacked by, or provide harborage to, insects. Applications of this product can be made from the interior and/or exterior. Drilling of hole(s) may be necessary to access galleries or harborages. Treatment of insect harborages associated with fences, bridges, landscape timbers, under slabs or other non-structural elements is permitted with this product.
TREATMENT OF INSECT GALLERIES, HARBORAGES OR VOIDS:
Use sufficient foam to treat the known or suspected insect harborages. After applying this product, hold the injector tip in place for approximately 8 sec to allow the product within the injector tube to dispense into the treatment area. Drilling hole(s) may be required to access the known or suspected gallery, harborage or void. Drill hole(s) at 1 or more locations along the gallery, harborage or void for proper treatment. Use of a moisture meter may help to determine the spread of a treatment. This product can be used as a localized treatment for the control of existing infestations of subterranean termites and other wood destroying insects, or as a supplemental treatment in a structural protection program. This product is intended for use on localized wood destroying insect infestations only. The purpose of localized applications is to kill wood destroying insects which may be present in the treated channels at the time of treatment. Localized applications are intended as supplemental treatments and not a substitute for: mechanical alteration, soil treatment, or foundation treatment. This product should not be used as a stand-alone treatment for structural protection.
Reapplication Interval for this product: This product may be applied to previously treated sites if activity is found 30 days after previous application.
Use this product in areas where termites are known or suspected. Apply this product to termite galleries, channels, damaged wood, harborages between structural elements or within construction voids. Indoor termiticide treatment locations may include areas associated with unexposed wooden elements inside wall voids, in and around bath traps, shower voids, pipe chases, utility penetrations and other probable sites of termite entry or harborage.
OTHER WOOD DESTROYING PESTS (POWDER POST BEETLES, OLD HOUSE BORER AND WHARF BORER):
Treatment locations may include areas associated with exposed non-sealed wooden elements in areas such as crawl spaces, attics, unexposed wooden elements inside walls, galleries or other harborages.
WOOD DESTROYING PEST TREATMENTS - OUTDOORS
Outdoor treatment locations may include exterior wooden elements associated with bridges, decks, fencing, landscape timbers, wooden retaining walls, siding, channels in damaged wood, spaces between wooden elements of a structure, junctions between wood and foundations and voids associated with buildings. Do not apply this product in or on boats, or to areas of non-structural piers, bridges, or any other structures that may contact surface water bodies. Do not allow this product to come into contact with or contaminate surface waters through application or drift. Applications to exposed subterranean termite tunnels (i.e. shelter tubes) may be made to residential outdoor areas. Break open a section of the shelter tube and apply directly over the exposed area. Apply enough product to cover the exposed area and a distance of approximately 2-inch in each direction over the shelter tube itself.
Outdoor applications of this product must be limited to small spot treatments only. Do not apply this product to any impervious surfaces. Do not make direct applications, nor any applications of this product to the ground within the drip line of any trees or shrubs used for growing fruits, nuts, vegetables or other foods.
TERMITES, CARPENTER ANTS, OR CARPENTER BEES HARBORING IN STUMPS, SLABS AND FENCES:
Drill 1 or more holes into areas of suspected termite, carpenter ant, or carpenter bee activity. It may be necessary to drill several holes around the circumference of the stump at varying heights, to properly treat the nest or gallery system. When treating below slabs, drill 1 or more holes through the slabs where termites, carpenter ants, or carpenter bees are active, or suspected, and inject this product. For fences, treat exposed surfaces with this product where termites, carpenter ants, or carpenter bees are active (Please note: the foam must dissipate or excess foam must be removed before the applicator leaves the area) and/or drill wooden members where termites, carpenter ants, or carpenter bees are active, or suspected, and inject this product.
CARPENTER BEES OR FORAGING CARPENTER ANTS:
This product is intended for outdoor treatments for carpenter bee or carpenter ant harborages or trails associated with decks, fences or other non-structural elements. Inject this product into galleries, cavities, harborages or structural voids. Apply the foam up to a 6 in. length of the carpenter bee or carpenter ant trail. Please note: the foam must dissipate or excess foam must be removed before the applicator (or user) leaves the area.
EXTERIOR PERIMETER/LOCALIZED INTERIOR TERMITES (SUBTERRANEAN AND ARBOREAL):
This product can be used as a preventative or curative interior structural void treatment for subterranean termites when applied in conjunction with an Exterior Perimeter/Localized Interior (EP / LI) termiticide labeled for EP / LI application. Targeted interior application(s) of this product may be made to vulnerable areas such as voids associated with plumbing/utility lines penetrating floors, bath and/or shower voids, expansion joints and/or settlement cracks, wall voids and other voids of probable, potential, or known termite entry.
When this product is used to treat known or suspected localized interior termite infestation(s), this product can be used in lieu of other localized interior treatment(s). Targeted interior application(s) of this product may be made to vulnerable areas such as voids associated with plumbing/utility lines penetrating floors, bath and/or shower voids, expansion joints and/or settlement cracks, wall voids and other voids of probable or potential termite entry.
This application is intended for localized areas of existing or potential termite activity and must not be applied to indoor surfaces for the purposes of general pest control. This product is not a substitute for soil-applied termiticide treatment(s) beneath slabs or foundations.
NON-WOOD DESTROYING PEST TREATMENTS CRAWLING PESTS - Ants (Excluding Fire, Harvester, Leaf Cutter and Pharaoh):
Treat voids with this product, where these pests enter, hide or harbor. Immediately wipe up any excess product on exposed surfaces.
Do not apply within 15 ft of bodies of fresh water: lakes, reservoirs, rivers, permanent streams, marshes, natural ponds and commercial fishponds. A 15 ft buffer of uniform groundcover must exist between the application area and bodies of fresh water (uniform ground cover is defined as land which supports vegetation of >2 in. throughout).
Do not apply within 60 ft of estuarine bodies of water. Estuarine water bodies are brackish, tidal water such as bays, mouths of rivers, salt marshes and lagoons.
This product is toxic to birds, fish and aquatic invertebrates. Do not apply directly to water, or to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark. Runoff from treated areas may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in neighboring areas. Care must be taken to avoid runoff. Do not contaminate water by disposal of wastes.
