Shake Well Before Use. This product may be applied with trigger sprayer, hand-held, backpack, or hose-end sprayers. Use a hose-end sprayer that can be adjusted to provide a dilution ratio of about 2 fl. oz. of this product (4 Tbs) per gallon of spray.

Apply when listed pests are present. Repeat applications may be made as indicated in the Home Gardens section. See your state extension service recommendations for treatment guidelines in your area.

Individual fire ant mounds:

Mix the amount of this product recommended per gallon of spray and use a sprinkler can or similar device to apply the diluted spray as a mound drench, using 1 to 2 gallons per mound. Do not use pressurized sprays. Apply about 10% of the spray volume around the perimeter of the mound and the remainder directly to the mound. Do not disturb fire ant mound prior to application. If possible, apply following recent rainfall. For best results apply when weather is cool, 65 to 85 degrees F, or in early morning or late evening.

    Great Product

    By Mark on 07/06/2016

    I've fought Colorado Potato Beetles for years with several other products, but nothing worked better than "fair". I was skeptical this would work, and waited a few days to long to order. I had already hand picked hundreds of adult beetles and plucked countless leaves with eggs but was fighting a losing battle. My order was shipped right away, and I applied the afternoon I received it. 2 ounces in 1 gallon of water, and applied with a very fine spray covering both sides of the 200' row. I had many potato plants with no leaves left, and some where the main stems were eaten half way to the ground. Most plants had dozens of larvae, and there were hundreds of larvae per plant on some of the 200' row. I checked it first thing the next morning after spraying, and there were a few dead bugs on the ground. It appeared some were still actively eating the leaves, but not many. The next day I checked again, not expecting great results. I was shocked to see 99.9% of the bugs were dead on the ground. I checked daily after that and fond zero bugs. Now, 1 week after that first spray, I found 2 adult beetles and 3 larvae on the whole row. The stripped plants have already recovered with many new leaves and the whole row looks very healthy. I plan to spray again in the next day to keep them under control. This is a great product.
