FoxFarm Don't Bug Me Home and Garden Insect Spray RTU offers a safe way to control insects. It features Pyrethrum as its active ingredient which is derived from chrysanthemum flowers so it is guaranteed safe to be applied on fruits and vegetables up until the harvest day. It quickly and effectively kills aphids, white flies, house flies, gnats, mosquitoes, flying moths, ants, cockroaches, centipedes, sowbugs, pillbugs, crickets, fleas, ticks, armyworms, psyllids, stinkbugs, webworms, weevils, and other insect pests on contact, as well as flush out insects that are hiding so they can be eliminated. This liquid insecticide breaks down instantly and will not linger in the surroundings. It is labeled for use in and out of the home, on flowers, roses, vegetables, fruits, trees and shrubs. Comes in 24 oz. ready-to-use spray bottle.
Make the right diagnosis before you spray. Damage can also be caused by diseases or nutritional deficiencies. If you’re not sure, take a cutting from a damaged plant, seal it tightly in a plastic bag, and take it to the nursery for identification. If a plant has been damaged or just seems to be in poor health, try a root drench of Big Bloom® Liquid Fertilizer to revive it after you treat the problem.
Choose a time when wind will not direct the spray away from the plant, and avoid spraying in the heat of the day, when sunlight can cause the product to dissipate quickly. Hold the bottle 12 inches away and spray lightly, being sure to cover both sides of the leaf. Insects must be sprayed directly to be killed, but there is no need to over-saturate the plant -- a little goes a long way.
House Flies, Gnats, Mosquitoes, Flying Moths:
As a room spray to control these pests, close doors and windows and pump spray, aiming the nozzle into the upper corners of the room, filling the room with a fine mist. Keep room closed for at least 15 minutes and then air room out before occupancy. Before spraying in kitchen or dining areas, cover or remove food and utensils.
Ants, Cockroaches (Water Bugs/Palmetto Bugs), Centipedes, Sowbugs, Pillbugs, Crickets, Silverfish, Firebrats, Fleas, Ticks, and Spiders, including Black Widow and Scorpions:
Spray into cracks and crevices, along baseboards, behind and beneath cabinets, cupboards, pantry, other food storage areas, under stoves, sinks, refrigerators, and in and around waste containers and other areas where these pests are seen or suspected of hiding. Spray as many pests as possible, especially as they are being flushed from hiding. Spray ant trails and places where they are entering the house.
Fleas and Ticks:
Where fleas and ticks are associated with household pets, remove and launder or replace the pet’s bedding, and spray the surrounding area. Pay particular attention to cracks and crevices, along the baseboards, carpeted areas, area rugs, and fabric-covered furniture where these pests may be found. Replace pet bedding when spray is dry. Concurrent treatment of the pets and their yard areas is recommended with a product labeled for those sites and pests.
Apply as a spot treatment along baseboards and edges of carpet and rugs. Also spray under carpets and area rugs, after vacuuming area to remove debris. Spray carpet in corners of rooms, under furniture, in closets, on shelving and other areas where these pests are seen or suspected.
To kill the exposed forms of these pests, find and destroy infested packages of food products in cabinets or pantry. Remove shelf paper. Clean inside cabinets thoroughly. Remove packaged goods and spray shelves and cracks and crevices. Replace shelf paper with new paper and return packaged goods when spray is dry.
