    box elders

    By Sandy on 06/08/2016

    I use this for control around the exterior of the homes warm side to help with box elder bugs. I use it with the spray type in or on areas where I can't use granules.

    Ants - 0, Me - 1

    By Gregg on 06/30/2019

    Every spring, I get these small sugar ants that attempt making their way into the house. Instead of finding them on the kitchen counter, they enter through the living room, far away from where any food is consumed. In the past, I've paid for an exterminator, but figured I''d try it myself, so that's what brought me to DoMyOwn. A 25 lb bag of Permethrin and a broadcast spreader, took all of 10 minutes to walk around the house perimeter applying two droppings of granules. Three days later, no ants. The 25 lb bag has more than enough product to perform the task agins this fall, as well as getting a good start on the spring season. Unless you have more money than time, making the purchase from DoMyOwn for home insect eradication will save you and your hard earned money.

    Insects taken care of.

    By Kathy on 08/02/2019

    Sod web worms the precursor to grub worms are rampant. It actually took two applications of Telstar and one last application of permethrin to see the last of them. I have been impressed with the Do It Youself company as they respond quickly and ship quickly. Their prices are very good.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
What would the spreader setting for a Scotts Speedy Green 2000 to apply American Brand Permethrin Granules?
A

Unfortunately we are not exactly sure what setting to place that exact model spreader on to apply American Brand Permethrin Granules, but typically there is not a specific setting since it all depends on how fast you walk, etc.

The label calls for 2 to 3 pounds per 1000 square feet.  If your spreader settings go from 1 to 10 (1 letting out the least and 10 letting out the most) you typically want to be around a 2 setting.  If your spreader goes from 1 to 20, you should probably be around a 4 setting.  The goal is to just run out of product when you are done walking the 1000 square feet.  One person may walk faster than someone else, so they may place It on a higher setting than someone that walks slower. 

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 4 ounces of any type of product of similar granule size, or of the extinguish 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 1000 square feet.

Q
Are American Brand Permethrin Granules an effective brand for fire ants like Advion Fire Ant Bait?
A
American Brand Permethrin Granules are labeled for fire ants and should be applied with water. Advion Fire Ant Bait should be applied around the mound on a dry day when you are not expecting any rainfall for at least 8-24hrs. American Brand Permethrin Granules are insecticide granules and Advion Fire Ant granules are a bait that they consume and transfer through food sharing. Baiting is most popular because you are able to eradicate more than the foraging ants because the product makes it way back to the colony site.
