MIXING INSTRUCTIONS AND APPLICATION EQUIPMENT: Shake well before using. EcoVia EC should be mixed with water or oil and applied with a handed pressurized compressed air sprayer, backpack sprayer or mist blower, power sprayer, mechanical aerosol misting/fogging equipment, (ULV or thermal), automated spray systems or other conventional application equipment. Clean spray equipment before use. Add approximately half of the required amount of water or oil to the tank and then add the appropriate amount of product, agitate and add the remaining water or oil. Apply the solution until surfaces are wet, but not to the point of run-off. Product requires only light agitation in spray systems after concentrate has been diluted. When diluting with water, prepare only the amount needed for use within 12 hours and maintain light agitation during use. Do not store spray solution overnight. After applications, rinse the tank with clean water, pressurize the tank and flush the valve and hose.

TICKS AND FLEAS: Dilute product at the rate of up to 2 fluid ounces per gallon and apply until area is damp. Treat infested areas such as pet beds and resting areas, carpeted floors, cracks, voids, crevices, and other harborage areas nearby the infested areas. Do not spray this product directly on pets.

Note: For oil dilutions that are applied in food handling establishments, a deodorized petroleum oil which conforms to CFR 21 (especially section 172.884) is required (such as Exxon Isopar M, Ashland Low Odor Base Solvent or equivalent). Tank mix applications must be made in accordance with the more restrictive of label limitations and precautions. No label dosages may be exceeded.

Make specific efforts to spray areas where pest species congregate such as, but not limited to, landscape timbers, mulch, waste receptacles, dumpsters, downspouts, entry points around water pipes and utility penetrations, windows, shutters, porches and porch lights, doors, vents, overhangs, and eaves. Void applications can be made behind veneers and siding, into stone foundations, into block voids and structural voids, wall voids, under slabs, stoops, porches or to the soil in crawlspaces, and other similar voids. Repeat as necessary.


MOUND DRENCH METHOD - FOR CONTROL OF FIRE ANTS AND OTHER MOUNDING ANTS: Dilute 1 to 2 fluid ounces of product per gallon. Apply 1 to 2 gallons directly to each mound until it is wet. In addition apply product in a 4 foot diameter circle around the mound to control foraging workers and newly mated queens. Use the higher volume for mounds larger than 12 inches.

Trees, shrubs, and vegetation around stagnant pools, marshy areas, ponds, shorelines and other areas that collect water may be treated. For best results thoroughly treat the underside of leaves and vegetation, where mosquitoes are most likely to harbor. Repeat as necessary.


FOGGING: For ULV (cold fog) and thermal fog applications, apply undiluted or dilute with light mineral oil or another suitable non-phytotoxic diluent. Use up to 0.25-1.5 fl oz of product per 1000 sq ft of ground surface area, or up to 10-60 fl oz per acre. Use higher rates for heavy vegetation and/or when target insect populations are high. For best results, apply when insects are most active and when conditions are conducive to keeping the fog close to the ground.


MOSQUITO CONTROL AND OTHER BITING INSECTS - AUTOMATIC SPRAYING SYSTEMS: To control house flies, horn flies, stable flies, horse flies, mosquitoes and gnats, dilute product concentrate immediately before use at 0.25 to 1.5 ounces per gallon of water (Use lower dilution rates for preventative and maintenance applications). Agitate while adding water and maintain light agitation while system is in use. In automatic spraying or misting systems used for mosquito and fly control, solutions of product may be stored for up to one month, as long as the system has adequate agitation. To dispense diluted concentrate through an automatic spraying system, adjust spray nozzles to deliver 1 ounce of liquid per minute at a maximum of 2,000 cubic feet of space per nozzle. Automatic spraying systems must not be programmed to release pesticides where food or feed is directly exposed.

STINGING INSECTS: Dilute product at the rate of 2 to 4 fluid ounces per gallon or 2 to 4 fluid ounces in sufficient water to treat 1000 sq ft (use lower rate for maintenance service and higher rates for active infestations) and apply until area is thoroughly wet. Treat nest, nest entrances, harborage sites, and areas where stinging insects, land, walk, or rest. Applicators should wear protective equipment if applications are made when stinging insects are active. For best results, apply early morning or during late evening hours.


USE ON LAWNS, TURF GRASS, AND TURF: Dilute product at the rate of 1 to 6 fluid ounces per gallon or 1 to 6 fluid ounces in sufficient water to treat 1000 sq ft (use lower rate for maintenance service and higher rates for active infestations) and apply until area is thoroughly wet. Exceeding rates may result in phytotoxicity of treated plants.


USE ON ORNAMENTAL TREES AND SHRUBS: Dilute product at the rate of 1 to 2 fluid ounces per gallon or 1 to 2 fluid ounces in sufficient water to treat 1000 sq ft (use lower rate for maintenance service and higher rates for active infestations) and apply until foliage is thoroughly wet. Exceeding rate may result in phytotoxicity of treated plants. A small-scale test is recommended to verify safety to ornamental plants. While phytotoxicity testing has been carried out on ornamental plants under various environmental conditions, and no phytotoxicity has been observed, certain cultivars may be sensitive to the final solution.

    Nice alternative

    By Samuel on 06/18/2014

    Verified Purchase

    EcoVia offers an eco-friendly alternative to synthetics. The main advantage over Essentria is less clogging of the nozzles. However, I've found the main competitor to be slightly more effective in controlling the target pest for longer periods. The odor dissipates quickly when used for exterior purposes. And, if your client is properly informed, they should expect an essential oil type odor during the application.

    EcoVia Ec

    By Ian on 03/24/2016

    Only has a 2 week residual and I had to re-apply every 2 weeks for my customer. Not near as effective as bifienthrin. Oil based and ruined my rubber gaskets in my Stihl sr 450. Chemical tank and hose had a thick oil coating on it and took me hours to clean. Bought 2 bottles and will be sending the unopened one back.

    Best in 35 years

    By Max on 07/03/2014

    Verified Purchase

    I bought this product to see if I could control the spiders on my boat dock. It is the only product that I have found that is harmless to aquatic life and that I can apply with a pump up sprayer. I first used a Quickie spider cobweb brush to remove all the webs that I could see, and then sprayed the boat dock with the EcoVia. I didn’t spray the decking nor any of the structure above about 8 feet. Spiders were controlled quite well for three weeks, but I needed to spray again before four weeks had passed. I’m highly satisfied with those results. A few minutes each week to brush any webs, and few minutes every third week to spray is well worth it to not be overran with spiders. I bought the small bottle for $17, and it should last me about four months at the frequency I’m using it. This is the first time in 35 years that I have a way to control the spiders with very little effort, and with a non-toxic product. I highly recommend this product combined with weekly use of a web brush.

    Midge control

    By Mary on 02/24/2016

    This product worked very well on our infestation of midges. Even pest control could not get them under control. We live on a lake with a sea wall and they hatch every day. We had so many you couldn't walk out in the yard. I like this product because it is safe to use around pets and it does the job.

    Fair to middlin'

    By Charles on 07/06/2015

    Eco Via is easy on the environment and somewhat easy on the insects. We had to apply 3 times before we saw results with mosquitoes. Eco Via did not discourage the horse flies but after 3 applications at least the mosquito population was diminished.
