Before using PestXpert Foaming Insect Killer outdoor, remove debris and leaf litter from next to the foundation.  Make sure to also cut back vegetation and branches, move or rake back rocks, deep mulch or other potential pest harborage next to the foundation.  Apply as a coarse spray to thoroughly and uniformly wet the foundation and/or band area.  This will allow the insecticide to reach the soil or thatch level where pest may be active.  Applying around windows, doors, service line entrances, eaves, soffits, and roof overhangs can greatly reduce the potential for entry by crawling pests. 

 When using outdoors to kill ants, spray around ant trails and hills.  Also around nests hidden under steps, brickwork, concrete, etc.  Break apart accessible nests and spray on and around debris until surface is slightly wet.  Treatment of infested fences and tree holes is permitted.  Spray outside surfaces or screen of doors, window frames or wherever insects may enter the home.  Around light fixtures, on porches, in garages and other places where insects land or congregate is permitted.  For barrier treatments, apply at the rate of 4 seconds of spraying per 3 linear feet.  Pests may also be sprayed directly with an application of spray for 2 second. 

 For overwintering pests, treat in late summer or fall just before pests begin looking for winter shelter.  Spray siding, eaves, around windows, doors, utilities and window screens.  To help reduce infestations, treat cracks and crevices, attics and other indoor winter hiding places.  Spray outside surfaces around pet house, kennel, or sleeping quarters for flea and tick control.  Do not apply directly to swimming pools or swimming pool systems.  Apply as a spot or crack-and-crevice treatment to impermeable surfaces such as tiles walkways around pools.  

Do not apply to boat surfaces that contact water.  Spot treatments may be made to exterior surfaces that do not contact water.  Broadcast applications to exterior surfaces of boats are prohibited.  Use on the inside of boats is okay.  Do not reapply for 21 days.  Also make sure product won’t drain or wash off into water bodies or other aquatic habitats.  

Before applying to vinyl or aluminum siding, treat a small area and evaluate 30 minutes later to allow any potential staining to occur.   Regardless of the test results, do not apply to vinyl or aluminum siding when exposed to direct sunlight or during the heat of the day.  Staining, bleaching, or discoloration may result to extreme heat or direct sunlight.
