OUTDOORS: Spray area infested with the below-listed flying insects. Hold container 18-24 inches from shrubs, bushes, and grassy areas. Spray these areas with a slow sweeping motion at a rate of 1-3 seconds per cubic yard of space while moving away from the treated area. To reduce annoyance from these pests, treat open porches and patio in a similar manner. Spray only when the air is still. Allow spray to dissipate before occupying the treated area.

GENERAL: When sprayed directly on insects, this spray will kill listed insects (Eastern Tent Caterpillars, Aphids, Cankerworms, Leafhoppers, White Flies, Spider Mites, Japanese Beetles, Mealybugs, Ants, Caterpillars, and Box Elder Bugs) on Ornamental Cherries, Spirea, Roses, Crepe Myrtle, Ornamental Crabapples, Andromedas, Azaleas, Chrysanthemums, Gardenia, Purple Passion Vines, Peonies, Oleander, and Arborvitae. Take care when spraying tender growth on young plants.

WHEN SPRAYING, HOLD CAN 18-20 INCHES FROM PLANT. For best results, spray in the evening or on a cloudy day when air is still. Lightly mist the plants, using a slow sweeping motion. Avoid wetting foliage with spray. Spray rows at a rate of 1 foot per second. For heavy growth, spray both sides of row. Do not spray when temperature exceeds 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

INDOORS: TO KILL FLIES, GNATS, MOSQUITOES, AND SMALL FLYING MOTHS: Close all doors and windows and direct spray upward into center of room, using a slow sweeping motion. Spray 5-10 seconds for average room. Keep room closed for 15 minutes after spraying. Sweep up and discard fallen insects. Cover exposed food and utensils before spraying.

To reduce infestation, thoroughly spray the animal’s bedding, sleeping quarters, around baseboards, window and door frames, wall cracks, local areas of floors, and other resting places until the surface is slightly moist. Treat these areas at the rate of 2 seconds per linear foot at a distance of 12-18 inches. Also, spray the entire inside surface of doghouses. Put fresh bedding in pet’s quarters after spray is dry. DO NOT SPRAY ANIMALS. Also treat dogs and cats pets with a registered flea and tick control product before allowing them to reenter treated area.

If used on lightcolored or delicate upholstery fabrics, test for potential staining in an inconspicuous place before use.
