Maggies Farm Yard Bug Spray RTS is a ready-to-use botanical insecticide concentrate for use on lawns, landscapes and home perimeters that kills and repels the most common outdoor pests including ants, aphids, beetles, caterpillars, cockroaches, crickets, fleas, spiders, stink bugs, ticks and other yard and perimeter pests. Using natural plant oils as the active ingredients, it leaves no harmful residues and is safe for use around children and pets. Maggie's Farm Yard Bug Spray for Lawns, Landscapes and Perimeters comes equipped with a hose-end sprayer that connects with a garden hose and treats up to 5000 sq ft.
Shake well before use and periodically during use.
Outdoor use only.
Attach the bottle nozzle to a garden hose. Make sure the nozzle is in the “OFF” position, and turn on the water spigot to fully open. Extend hose to the farthest area to be treated. Hold the bottle upright and point nozzle toward the treatment site (not the ground). Bend the small plastic safety tab with your thumb and turn to “ON”. Begin spraying, working back towards the spigot. The bottle will empty after 10-12 minutes of spraying. To stop spraying, turn to “OFF” position. Turn the water off. To relieve pressure before disconnecting nozzle from the hose, turn dial to “WATER” until the water stops. Then turn back to “OFF” position and disconnect from hose.
This bottle is designed to cover up to 5000 sq ft. For preventative treatment and light infestations, apply at a rate of 500-600 sq ft per minute. For heavy infestations apply at a rate of 250-300 sq. ft. per minute. For best results, wait a day or two before mowing or watering the treated area. Reapply monthly, or as needed.
For lawn pests, spray in a sweeping motion to cover the target area, overlapping the spray to get total coverage.
Trees, Bushes and Heavy Vegetation:
For plant pests, mosquitoes, ticks and other pests that harbor in heavy vegetation, spray thoroughly to insure treatment reaches deep into vegetation, versus just spraying the top. Spray foliage to the point of runoff.
For aphids, beetles, caterpillars, mites, scale insects, whiteflies and other garden pests, spray to wet the foliage to runoff. Spray on the underside of leaves as much as possible. Only apply at the lower rate (500-600 sq ft per minute) to minimize potential burning of delicate plants, and apply late in the day.
Building Foundation (Perimeter Treatments):
To help prevent ants, boxelder bugs, centipedes, crickets, earwigs, fleas, firebrats, millipedes, roaches, spiders, sowbugs/pillbugs, springtails, stink bugs and other crawling pests from getting inside the house, spray the lower portions of the foundation and the perimeter to about 3 feet out. Do not spray siding.
