The New York General Pest Control Starter Kit includes both the equipment and the chemicals you need to perform your own professional pest control prevention and maintenance treatments for insect pests. We recommend using an Integrated Pest Management approach for the best results, incorporating thorough inspection, sanitation, and exclusion practices along with the use of products. This kit includes a Chapin 1 Gallon Pump Sprayer to apply the FenvaStar EcoCap Insecticide Concentrate. FenvaStar EcoCap is a water-based liquid concentrate containing the active ingredient Esfenvalerate, controlling a wide variety of insect pests both outdoors and indoors. Also included is a Bellow Hand Duster to apply CimeXa Insecticide Dust to cracks and crevices for an extra layer of protection. Finally, the kit includes Catchmaster 100i Insect Monitor glue boards to help monitor your efforts and identify any pests that may be found in the area.
*To use the Chapin 20000 1 Gallon Pump Sprayer, you will need to screw the hose onto the tank adapter per the instructions included with the sprayer. Turn the pump handle counterclockwise to remove the pump so that the tank may be filled.
*Fill the tank 1/3 - 1/2 with clean, temperate water. Shake FenvaStar before opening, then add 1 oz. of concentrate to the sprayer tank.
*Secure sprayer pump and gently shake or agitate the tank to begin mixing.
*Remove sprayer pump and finish filling the sprayer tank with water to the 1 gallon mark.
*Replace sprayer pump and tighten securely by turning the handle clockwise.
*To pressurize the sprayer, turn the handle ¼ turn counter-clockwise to release, then pump until you feel resistance.
*Push handle down, turn ¼ turn clockwise to lock in place. Now you are ready to spray. Re-pump sprayer as needed during application to maintain pressure.
*Turn the end of the nozzle to adjust the spray pattern from a pin stream to a wide cone spray.
*Apply FenvaStar EcoCap to the following areas:
1 foot up the foundation of the structure and 1 foot out onto the ground
around areas where cables, pipes and wires enter into the structure
around door frames and window frames
around vents and soffits
any other area on the structure where insect pests have been active
*Keep pets and children out of the treatment area while spraying and until the application has dried, usually about an hour.
*Try to use up all the spray mixture in one application. If spray solution is stored overnight, re-agitate the tank before spraying. After use, spray some clean water through the tank outside as a rinse, then store the tank empty and open in a cool, dry area.
*Do not apply FenvaStar EcoCap to edible plants such as vegetable gardens or fruit trees.
*Repeat application at 90-day intervals for general maintenance. In times of higher pest pressure, such as summer months, or in areas with extended direct sunlight, applications may be made more frequently, such as every 30 days.
*FenvaStar EcoCap may be applied as a spot or crack and crevice treatment indoors in areas such as around door frames and window frames, where utilities enter.
