A few hours to application, completely wet the grass, and apply as a thorough coverage spray. One quart will treat 62.5 sq. ft. For ideal control of surface insects, postpone additional watering or mowing for 24 hours. Treat ants and other insects when they begin to appear or when you notice lawn damage.

To significantly reduce the potential for entry by crawling pests, apply a constant band of insecticide around building foundation. Apply as a spot or crack-and-crevice spray around windows, doors, eaves, vents and other areas. For more effective treatments, remove debris, leaf litter and other matter that is adjacent to the foundation that could possibly harbor pests. Apply a 3 ft. band around the structure and upwards along the foundation to 3 feet. Apply as a spot or crack-and-crevice spray around windows, doors, and roof overhangs. For the insecticide to reach the soil or thatch layer where pests may be active, apply as a coarse spray to completely wet the foundation and/or band area, 1 quart will treat 62.5 sq. ft. of surface area.
Make a residual application to ornamental plants adjacent to foundations of building. Apply as a spot or crack-and-crevice spray to surfaces such as, but not limited to porches, screens, window frames, eaves, patios and garages where pests are active.
