Where Not To Use

Do not treat structures that contain cisterns, wells, French drains or sump systems. Soil in the vicinity of wells, cisterns or ponds should not be treated. For those situations, contact your County Cooperative Extension Agent or consult a commercial pest control service. Do not treat soil that is water saturated or frozen, or in any conditions where run-off or movement from the treatment area (site) is likely to occur. Do not apply while it is raining. Do not use on pets. Do not use on edible or ornamental plants. Spray drift onto these plants should be rinsed off immediately with water.

When To Apply

Use as a preventive treatment to create a barrier, keeping termites out.

How Often To Apply

Reapplication for subterranean termites should only be made when there has been a disruption of the chemical barrier in the soil due to construction, excavation, landscaping, etc. Reapplication should be made as a spot treatment to those areas. Annual reapplication of the entire premises must be avoided.
