Howard Johnson's Bifenthrin Granules will assist in the control of the most common insects around the house, overall lawn applications, and spot treattments. Some of those pests include ants, fleas, ticks, mole crickets, chinch bugs and more. It contains Bifenthrin as its active ingredient which will provide an effective protection against these insect pests. The granules are uniform in size which allows for a more even spread of the product and minimizes the chances of segregation. It can be used on lawns in landscaped areas and borders around commercial and residential lawns, hospital and public landscapes, industrial buildings, parks and recreational areas, and athletic fields.

May be applied at up to 0.4 lb. a.i. per acre per application on non-residential use sites (i.e., around institutional, public, commercial or industrial buildings; parks; recreational areas or athletic fields).

APPLICATION RATES FOR LAWN AND PERIMETER
Under normal conditions, the treatment rates stated in the table included on the label will control the pests listed. To control each of the pests listed on that table, Bifen L/P may be applied at up to 0.4 lb AI/A, at the discretion of the applicator. For residential lawn applications, use a maximum of 0.2 lb of active ingredient per acre per application. (See label for complete list)
Perimeter Treatment: Treat the ground area 5 to 10 feet wide around and adjacent to the structure.
Fire ant mound treatment: Treat using 1/2 cup of Bifen L/P per mound and then flood the mound with 1 to 2 gallons of water using enough force to allow the insecticide to flow into the ant tunnels. Apply in cool weather (65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit) or in early morning or late evening hours to achieve the best results. Treat new mounds as they appear. After use with insecticide, food utensils such as teaspoons and measuring cups must not be used for food purposes.
INDUSTRIAL NON-AGRICULTURAL APPLICATIONS

Broadcast 2.3 to 4.6 lbs. Bifen L/P per 1000 sq. ft. (0.2 to 0.4 lbs. ai/Acre) uniformly to control actively foraging ants (including Imported Fire Ants). For additional rate recommendations see comments section under Lawn & Perimeter Applications.
Pad Mounted Electrical Sites
Uniformly apply 1.0 to 1.5 Tablespoons (0.06 to 0.09 lbs.) of Bifen L/P per 4 sq. ft. of mounting pad to decrease or prevent ant mound building activity on electrical pads.
